Ocean Lakes Campground is close to the many attractions the Grand Strand has to offer, including shopping, golf courses, amusement parks, and of course the campground is located on the beach.  These are just some of the many things a guest may choose to do (if you choose to bring one) while you're in a mandolin class or jamming.  Ocean Lakes has partnerships with some of these attractions.  Visit the Ocean Lakes website where you can find a list of Value Partners and links to their websites. 


Guests can be included in your room for an additional fee of $200
