Ocean Lakes campground is packed with a year-round activity calendar. Craft events, dance festivals and concerts are scheduled throughout the year. Combine that with the mild Myrtle Beach weather, and you’ll find it to be a great place to vacation any month of the year.

Summer at Ocean Lakes Campground

In the summer, temperatures can soar to almost triple digits. July is typically the hottest month, with an average high of 88 degrees Fahrenheit and an average low of 71 degrees. Ocean Lakes has a mile of shoreline, so summer is the time perfect to hit the beach. The Splash Zone at the Sandy Harbor Family Fun Center is loaded with fun slides, splash areas and fountains.



If your little ones can’t get enough of Ocean Lakes, you can sign them up for Kamp Starfish which runs daily from June until August. Kamp Starfish even hosts Kid’s Night Out events from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM, specially planned so mom and dad can have a date night to themselves on vacation. Lastly, bluegrass fans are welcome to join the annual Ocean Lakes Bluegrass Weekend, a two day event packed with live music performances by award winning bands.

Traveling to Ocean Lakes in the Fall

Kids can try out Sandy’s Down Under Skate Board Park, play miniature golf at Sandy Harbor, or ride bikes in the fall. If you don’t bring your bikes, rentals are available at the park. The family-friendly campground spans more than 300 acres, where you can play bocce ball, shuffleboard, or enjoy the outdoors. Plus, Ocean Lakes has an added benefit of an on-site security team to help keep families safe.



In September, Ocean Lakes hosts a Gospel Weekend that focuses on inspirational music, and is open to all Ocean Lake guests for anyone yearning to refresh their soul. This weekend-long event is completely free to attend. Then, once October rolls around, Ocean Lakes has not one — not two — but three Halloweekends for the kids to embrace the Halloween spirit all month long! Each weekend consists of costume contests, pumpkin carving, and trick or treating. Many flock to Ocean Lakes to turn this annual event into a family tradition.

Winter by the Beach

January is usually the coldest month in Myrtle Beach, with an average low of 34 degrees Fahrenheit, and high of 55. A little cold doesn’t slow down the fun at Ocean Lakes Myrtle Beach, which has plenty of indoor facilities and outdoor entertainment. There’s the annual Polar Bear Plunge for those who aren’t afraid of cold water. This yearly event draws hundreds of people who take a dip in the ocean on New Year’s Eve.



If you prefer to be a little warmer, the indoor pool is open year-round with water aerobics classes offered at various times. Campground guests can also take painting or ceramic classes, depending on the schedule. During President’s Day Weekend, Ocean Lakes has a Beach N’ Boogie event, to dance your cares away on the beach!

Visiting Ocean Lakes During Spring Break

Spring is a busy time for families on spring break, and there’s much to do. Hit the links at Prestwick Country Club about a mile from the campground. The golf course boasts 72 holes and Ocean Lakes guests can often receive a discounted rate through the Ocean Lakes recreation office. The recreation office is a good stop before heading out to attractions in the Myrtle Beach area, as the staff keeps coupons and info readily available.



The spring season is a great time of year to go fishing, play volleyball, ping-pong, and to let the kids have full use of the outdoor playground. Next time you want to a beach getaway during spring break, you should definitely consider coming to Ocean Lakes.

Ocean Lakes Holiday Festivities

Bring the whole family to Ocean Lakes to celebrate the holidays. Leading up to Christmas, you’ll find events like breakfast with Santa, tree trimming, gingerbread house making and Christmas bingo. Easter activities include lunch with the Easter Bunny and an Easter field day for families. Nondenominational church services are offered on Sundays with Bible studies also available.
