I have been staying here for 45+ years and it is a nice facility. However, we have determined that it is no longer worth the cost and will go elsewhere for our next vacation. Sorry to say this as I have fond memories with my wife and kids.

My family has been going to Lakewood for over thirty years, we go every summer. The golf carts can be annoying, but so far we haven't had too many problems other than some isolated incidents. One year the sons of some less than desirable neighbors that were camping behind us and their friends ran over a sign post on the lot next to us with a golf cart coming close to hitting my brother-in-law's truck. We reported them, but they were leaving the day we reported them anyway. Another time my niece was walking with a friend of her's and some boys about their age (my niece was 16 at the time and the boys were probably showing off) came flying by on a golf cart and brushed my niece's friend tearing her jeans a little. Other than those two incidents in thirty years we haven't had a problem. The golf cart traffic can be annoying, but as long as you're vigilant I don't think there is a problem riding a bike. Most of the traffic is confined to the pavillion/outdoor pool area at the south end of the campground during the late evening/early nighttime hours. If you stay at the north end of the campground it probably won't be a problem at all.

1900 sites. 1350W, 1231S, 1350E (30/50amps), phone lines at all sites. Restrooms an showers, security, public phone, laundry, groceries and RV supplies, LP gas, food service (in season), dump station, ocean, saltwater fishing, swimming, indoor heated pool and spa, shuffleboard, horseshoes, rec hall, game room, playground, rec field, planned activities. If you choose an ocean front site, there is little shade. There is no entrance into the park after 1am. Although we are not people who normally stay out late, it always seemed a little strange to me to have a "lockdown time". Actually the roads inside were great. However, watch out for the portico outside the office. You need to drive around it as the height is only 12 ft. The various areas of the park were landscaped differently. There were two small ponds which had sites around them as well as ocean front sites. The check-in ladies were very nice and the security guards were very helpful in finding local places.. Everything was clean and well-maintaied. Excellent to get out of due to the inner roads and the fact that there was a traffic light at the entrance to the park.

We have made numerous visits to Lakewood. My mother-in-law had a seasonal then full-time site there until her death. This covered a 10 year period. I'm not a big MB fan but this is a nice campground. This is a full service campground with very nice accommodations. WiFi, local phone at your site, cable, pool, auditorium, large store, large laundry, trash pickup, security, golf cart rentals, ocean sites, wooded sites, park models, on the beach, planned programs the works. The park is very well kept. Staff varies from very friendly and helpful to a rare nasty. Most are at least ok. The fact that there are seasonals doesn't detract at all. Site 2707 is about 100 yds from the beach. Personally, I like the wooded sites farther away from the beach. Sites are nice sized. There is plenty to do in the area. Visit Huntington Beach State Park for a history lesson. This park also has a nice campground with some full hookup sites. Lots of interesting stuff to do in Charleston, SC about 1.5 hours south including Ft. Sumpter and the Patriot Museum. Drive north to Wilmington, NC and visit the battleship N. Carolina. The campground is located about .5 miles north the intersection of Rt. 544 and Hwy 15 (S. Kings Hwy). Easy in/out. This is actually on the south end of MB. There are several campgrounds there. Pirate Lands borders the north side of Lakewood. There is an RV dealer almost across the road (Sunnybrooks).
