According to recent surveys, the Grand Strand’s campgrounds are considered some of the country’s highest rated campgrounds in the country. Ocean Lakes Family Campground, Myrtle Beach Travel Park and Willow Tree Resort all won “A” ratings in the recent survey. The survey was completed amongst the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds and Ocean Lakes won the “Mega Park of the Year” award and Lakewood Camping Resort won the “Plan It Green” award from the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds. This was such a great honor for the parks around the area because it is very unusual for so many parks in one area to win awards as well as receive high ratings. According to the Paul Bambei, the CEO of the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, only 44 of the roughly 1,000 parks in the survey earned the “A” rating. Campgrounds are an important part of tourism lodging and make up about 10 percent of all lodging available on the Grand Strand. There are 13 campground companies that have a combined 10,800 campground sites along the Grand Strand, about 5,300 of which can be rented nightly. Campgrounds here are typically destination campgrounds and many of the parks’ visitors have been coming for generations and know they will get a great family vacation for an excellent price! Congratulations Myrtle Beach Campgrounds for being having the best campsites around the country!
