Campground Review #105 Pirateland Family Camping Resort in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

There are so many campgrounds in Myrtle Beach and it can be tricky to choose just one out of the bunch. There are multiple state park campgrounds, as well as campgrounds right on the Grand Strand. But for some folks Pirateland Family Camping Resort is the only one they will ever reserve when traveling to this popular destination.

On this week’s episode of the Campground of the Week podcast, our correspondent Tatiana Coffinger reviews a Pirateland Family Camping Resort in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Tatiana’s family can usually be found at a New York State Park campground with minimal hookups and zero cell signal. However, they all simply adore Pirateland in Myrtle Beach and return as often as they can squeeze it into their very busy schedules.

Campground Location

Pirateland is located at the southern end of the Grand Strand area of Myrtle Beach and within walking distance of Myrtle Beach State Park. You are nicely situated to easily access Murrells Inlet and Huntington Beach State Park as well. Of course, the most important feature to most campers is the direct beach access offered by the resort.

Campground Details

Pirateland is a private family-owned campground that has been open for over 50 years. It is an extremely large campground with approximately 2,100 campsites, plus additional accommodations such as cabins and park model rentals. In her review, Tatiana emphasizes that the layout of the campground really keeps the place from feeling overwhelmingly big. There are different sections and plenty of landscaping, rather than the rows and rows of campsites found at many resort campgrounds on the beach. Tatiana gives a ton of really specific advice for booking the site that will suit you best, so make sure you listen to hear those tips.

One of the reasons that Tatiana’s family loves Pirateland so very much (besides the private beach!) is because of all the resort amenities. Some of the highlights include

  • Outdoor pool
  • Indoor pool
  • Splash Ground
  • Jacuzzi
  • Lazy River
  • kayak and paddle boat rentals
  • miniature golf
  • playgrounds

…and too many other amenities to list!

There are also plenty of organized activities your older kids as well as the little ones.

Area Attractions

Tatiana and her family are big fans of golf, so they know how to steer our listeners to some great golfing options in the Myrtle Beach area. There are over 100 golf courses in Myrtle Beach, and Pirateland will help you make your tee time reservations during your stay! Other area recommendations include…

    It’s great how they pick up the trash.
    What I didn’t like,
    ANYWAY THEY CAN MAKE MONEY OFF THEY WILL, including YOUR VISITORS, $3per day time, if they wanna stay $5.
    Mini golf costs.
    One load of laundry will cost you $2, dryer $.25 for 6 minutes.
    If you need to get a taxi, forget about it NO ONE is allowed on grounds without a pass.
    Excessive barking of your puppy means your dog might bark for three minutes at the time. Leaving your dog in a fenced in area, while you have to use the facilities for number one( so what? About 2 minutes) is considered leaving your animal unsupervised.
    Lawn WILL BE MOWED ON SUNDAYS, NO(!!!!!!!!) exceptions.
    Pool is great, so is the lazy river.
    Besides that the ground is old, it’s clean. Access to the Atlantic is great.
    Mail will not be delivered, you have to sieve through your initials entire mail.
    Quiet hours are enforced UNLESS someone starts packing up at 5.00 AM which will set your dog off and no matter that it is inside your trailer, it’s a reason to threaten you with eviction.
    Best you get rid of the dog before you enter Pirateland.
    Kids friendly. Youngsters seem to have fun at the splash pool. Playground seems to be deserted all the time.
    Staff, cleaning and grounds keeping, is very friendly, while office won’t let you finish your sentences after paying up, nor are they willing to answer questions why breaking down a camp next to you at 5 AM loudly is okay.
    Don’t attach Republican bumper stickers to your car, they’ll fall of the car at night.
    The internet sucks, cable has moments when overloaded, but cell is great, so one may use personal hot spot as compensation.
    Trailers also arrive at 21.00. No one can get setting up done in an hour until quiet time starts, but remember dogs aren’t allowed to bark if they hear ruckus outside.
    If you ask me about my feelings, I felt like a prisoner, not being able to sleep in Monday’s, because I had to drive hubby to airport at 4 AM, due to his business trips and cabs can’t puck him up, I’m confined to the RV due to my dog barking, which had to be stopped even in your own trailer immediately.and yes, we were threatened with eviction.
