Tiny muddy dirty campsites - ours had a washout gully through the middle that was about a foot deep. We finally got them to come fill it in. We paid the extra $25 to check in early, then spent the whole afternoon trying to get them to make our site usable. We also had to go buy leveling plates because the site was so unlevel. At almost $100 a night, we were expecting a nicer camping experience. It’s obvious they do very few upgrades here. Dirty & wild with all the kids whipping golf carts around the park. We were on one of the busiest streets & parents were letting their tiny kids ride bikes & scooters in the middle of the busy road. I was terrified one of these little ones were going to get hit. We were very disappointed with this campground & won’t be back. I honestly don’t know how they get any positive reviews.

Just to get to the point the resort visually is not bad, the problem is the customer service and cleanliness of the resort. We camped out in an RV but we’re places on mountains of fire ants. The bathhouses were disgusting the toilets were always clogged and the flours were always so muddy! This was our first time visit and will be our last. We are not familiar with their “policy” other than the overflow parking and early check-in… we were not aware we would be given bracelets for anything we were not aware that the staff including the manager would be so rude and condescending! I’m sure they are super nice and easy going if all is well but if you bring up one concern or inconvenience to them they are barking at you almost immediately. We went up with a concern about the bracelets we needed, we were not given all the bracelets we asked for so we went to ask for them and they said “im truly sorry for the mess up this usually never happens I understand your concerns ( all in a very sarcastic voice plus holding her hands up gesturing them up and down as if we didn’t under her unless she spoke ever word as if there was a period at the end of each one) but policy is policy and if we didn’t give them to you at checking we cannot give them to you anymore.” Then comes out the manager and says… “I apologize for you inconvenience but I have been working here for 15 years and policy does not change for anyone” so basically they said we messed up you cannot do any of our amenities because of us but oh well. I never raised my voice at them or anything to be disrespected but simply walked away. And although we will never go back I know they do not care because we are just 1 person to them.

They run a nice, friendly, fun and safe campground. Security is very low kep but able to quickly handle situations. It's a great place for all ages. I believe the experience could be improved if they offered discounts for those staying several weeks like we do - but they don't and won't. We've been here several times and stay long so paying 3k for a month is the most expensive place we have ever been. Aside from their high lot fees, this is the place to be!

Campground is fantastic. Let’s start there because this review is all about the truth. The grounds are pretty. Plenty of amenities. Camp sights are tight. The only negative thing I have to say about the the property. Now, let’s talk about the staff. We’re here for bike week. We paid for a camp sight, 2 overflow truck parking spots, and a enclosed trailer parking spot. It’s bike week, does anyone want to guess what was in the trailer? We checked in yesterday. We rode our bikes in and out of the park 3 times since checking in. Today when returning we get flagged down at the guard shack. We were asked where our bike passes were. Now don’t you think if we need bike passes during bike week, we’d been told that at check in? We told the security guard that we were never told that. We were instructed to go to the office and get them. We cruised through to our camper with the intent to drop off the things we had with us since we’d been out riding all day, then we’d return to the office. Well Barney Fife “head of security and an ex Highway patrolman” had different plans. After chasing us down on his golf cart at 10 mph he threatened to kick us out and call the cops on us. Unbeknownst to “deputy do right” my best friend is a diabetic and had gone all day without his insulin. He was starting to bottom out, and needed his meds. I guess customer service isn’t a priority at this park. I guess decent common sense isn’t a priority either. It’s very obvious that consistent training doesn’t exist. There’s too many really nice camp grounds in Myrtle Beach to deal with the hostility, and the vibe that biker business isn’t wanted or appreciated. We’ll never come back here again. I’m sure they don’t care either. At least that’s what their head of security told us.

We have stayed at Lakewood on 3 separate occasions. We have read all the reviews both here and google and what we have experienced is nothing like the horror stories we have read. So here is our review of Lakewood Camping Resort The resort has everything. Store, café, Ice cream, food trucks, pools and of course the beach. Several family oriented activities during the week. The food is very good at the trading post. Somewhat pricy but no more than what you are going to pay elsewhere in Myrtle. The resort is clean. The Bathhouses are cleaned at least twice a day. They do offer garbage pick up if left out by 8am. We had a spot closer to the front this time that where we had previously stayed and the pick up was coming around between 815-830am every morning. If you are like us and sleeping in and miss it there are several dumpsters located around the resort to take off your trash. We have read some reviews that said people were setting off fireworks. We never heard any. Yes there were some dogs barking but it wasn’t intrusive. Yes, there are golf carts and some people do not like this however, the resort is over 300 acres it is almost necessary never once have I seen anyone speeding by that was dangerous. Yes, most of the campsites are close but so is every other campground here. Some sections are spread out further than others are. All the staff has been friendly and very helpful. Yes, their early check in policy has changed. Check in is at 3 and early check in begins at 12. The cost for early check is 25 dollars. While it used to be if your spot was open you could check in early but it’s really not a big deal and if it cost 25 dollars to get in early so be it. Express check in is 15 dollars and can be done at booking if at least 30 days early. Will express check in everything is sent to your house all your bracelets and info packet. Again it’s still cheaper than a hotel. We stayed from Apr 24-Apr 30. The week after spring break. My cost for the week 435 with early check in. At a nice hotel during the same time would have been over double the cost. They are updating several things at the resort. Bathhouses are being updated and refreshed. The outdoor pool area has been updated. The arcade is being updated. We did have an issue while setting up early and express check in for our return trip in June. Our neighbors and I are traveling together and I went to pay for both of us. The lady at the front, Jessica, was super nice. Because we have stayed there before my information is already on file and I didn’t have our neighbors vehicle tag. I was told to have them call and give them the info. So I notified our neighbors and we both received out ESign documents which we did and emailed back. When our neighbors called to give them the tag, the lady they spoke to told them that it wasn’t paid for and that I could not have done that. And my card and been charged again. So I went to the front desk and spoke with Amanda, whom was just as confused as I was. Said that it clearly showed that I had paid on Monday. So they did give me a refund. Again everyone I spoke or had any interaction with from front desk to cashiers to the grounds crew. Security was patrolling every so often. Again most of reviews here are people whom have had bad experiences and fewer post good experiences. We have drove thru the other campgrounds here but in our opinion none of them compare to Lakewood. We will only be staying at Lakewood when we come down.

We recently spent easter at Lakewood. I was interested to see as I read mixed reviews. I was very impressed with the resort. The staff was always friendly and there was lots to do. The bath houses were cleaned regularly and we'll maintained. Yes there are places that need updating but you can see they are slowly working on upgrades as the arcade was closed but the newly renovated bathroom was great. Our Children really enjoyed there time and not once did I hear "we're bored".

This camping resort really has everything you’d want for a beach RV/camping trip. The sites are flat and well marked, but don’t expect shade. The walk to the beach was quick, with steps and foot washing showers every few streets. There were lots of activities available, but our family spent time at the beach. They allow golf carts, so they were all over. We will definitely return if we are in the area.

We have been camping at Lakewood two or three times a year for nearly 20 years. This weekend we arrived at 2:30pm and was told we would have to pay $25 EARLY CHECK IN FEE. CHECK IN IS 3:00pm. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!! Our Daily camping rate during this stay was $27 per night. We were also told we would have to move our rig unless checking in. So we had to go to Wal Mart PARKING LOT (the only place large enough for a 50' rig) and wait for 15 minutes. Also the water was turned off for several hours without warning unless you downloaded their APP.

Staff was to busy talking to one another to talk to guest when checking in. No. pet park. Slides only opened on weekends. Great place to stay to be close to the beach. Great for kids to ride bikes. Hot tub smelled like bleach burned nose. The weather has been nice all week with the last couple of days being sunny. We were able to get in the water. The night was 82. Tomorrow’s high 69.

We paid $70 per night for a spot that was supposed to have an ocean view. Fact is none of the spots have an ocean view. You have to climb the stairs over a dune and go down some stairs to get to the ocean. All spots are packed in like sardines. Our neighbors sewer hole was right out our front door by the picnic table and this was a premium spot!!! Their WIFI did not work when I was there. None of the office staff would help me to get onto a connection so I could do my job. They told me to go elsewhere! Finally some nice lady came out from nowhere and told me she would type in her own connection & password so I could do my payroll. After I started doing my payroll some tall blonde clerk at the front desk left her post just to be rude to me and told me to move and then she rudely started talking to customers she brought over to where I was working just so I couldn't have a conversation with my employee while online. She was very loud and rude. I will never stay there again!
