We stayed overnight on a whim and they were able to accommodate our request for an RV site near the beach. We were just 100 ft from the beach and it was a blast. However, it was VERY crowded and tons of golf carts that cruz next to the beach until about 10:30PM. Site are tiny for a big RV...

We had a wonderful time. We were only there for 3 days, but it was great. All the employees we came in contact with were awesome. We did some shopping at the little store it has the essentials along with buckets and shovels. The arcade and the pools were a big hit with the kids as well.

My brother recently moved to the area. He won a two night stay at Ocean Lakes in some contest. He doesn't own an RV, so opted to give it to us when we came through the area. At first glance, everything seemed great. After all, we were on the end closest to the beach......the beach was a stone's throw away....

This is a great place to stay with a lot going on right at the campground. If you want close to the beach, try to get the H or HH sections. Anywhere yu stay in those sections is just a short walk to the beach. We loved it here and made reservations for next year while we were down there....

For those of you not familiar with Ocean Lakes. It is a gated community for campers and for those who rent a house there. It is a HUGE facility. Therefore, at peak times, it will be packed. The pool and beach will be crowded. However, for the most part, everyone knows this and excepts it as an opportunity to meet...

We booked 2 months in advance from our home in Wisconsin. Told them we were bringing an RV and motorcycle. Traveled 1100 miles only to be told that motorcycles are not allowed on the camp ground. The staff showed us the fine print burried at the end of a sentence " no motorcycles." The site was dirty, crowded, and congested....

This place is PACKED in Summer. I mean.... find a piece of sand big enough for your chair and squeeze on in!! Many rows deep of chairs and umbrellas.

This place is great! If you are into the camping scene this is a great place to go. There is so much to do within this campground. The beach has easy access. There is a pool, a store and several ice cream stands and golf cart rental place. A must stop for campers. We really had a great time.
