We spent a week here in the campgrounds in our travel trailer. If you're camping, the grounds are great. Nice even sites, right on the beach, laundromat, ice cream/snack shack was open, and we liked the idea that they strictly enforced the rules. We would not have been happy if people were loud and drunk at night. The only negatives...

We paid 35.00 parking per car (we had 2 cars) total of $70.00. We thought that would be fine since we had the resort with put put, indoor pool, game room, stores and more. We were wrong! Most of the things were closed like put put and eating places, the stores had very little left on the shelves and the...

Thank you for choosing Ocean Lakes, we are saddened to hear you did not enjoy your stay. Parking is included in the rental with Ocean Lakes Properties (OLP), just one of many advantages of using OLP. Although we do permit site holders to rent privately (which is where you incurred the parking fee), we strongly caution guests about using such...

The sites are a little close. Very nice cement pads with full hook ups. Daily garbage pick up! Our site 2162 ( I think) was 3 sites from the beach walkway. The beach is beautiful. NO fire rings provided. If you have your own fire ring, fires are allowed! My only complaint is the campers that don't have the common...

We appreciate that you had choose Ocean Lakes on several occasions in the past with positive experiences and were happy. Generally, guests complain about our policies for two reasons: when either they do not think we enforce them strongly enough, or when they disregard them and have to be reminded by our team/Security. Our drinking water is strongly regulated by...

We have been here often and are never disappointed. Prefer fall and spring. Everyone wonderful to work with, had a problem with our RV and they fixed it right away. Only place we would store our RV! Lots are a good size, with or without concrete pads. Wifi and cable tv.

The Summer crowd frankly sucks, so come in the Fall in early September when all the attractions are still open and it is warm outside. The Summer crowd is just too much for me. Our house was great, and the grounds are really close to the beach and the grounds have cool scenery and things to do. The visitor's center...

I stayed in a rental house in the Ocean Lakes complex for a week with my wife and her family. The house had plenty of room and a great view of the ocean. The only issue we had with the house was the cleanliness of the floors and carpet. They could've definitely be swept better before we arrived. The bathrooms...

This is the best RV camp grounds and it's on the beach. Super clean grounds, super nice bath houses, daily trash pick-up (they even provide you with trash bags daily). There is nothing bad I can say about Ocean Lakes Campgrounds.
