This fabulous RV campground is one of only a handful to be ranked a full 10/10/10 park by the Trailer Life Directory! Willow Tree Resort is just far enough away from Myrtle Beach to have peace and quiet, yet close enough to see the sights just 12 miles from the Atlantic Ocean.

The resort’s 106 full hookup RV campsites (30/50 amp) are paved and feature patios, BBQs and picnic tables. Back-in RV campsites measure 50×80 ft. while pull-thrus measure 50×100 ft. Free WiFi Internet is available at each site.

You won’t forget the super-clean bathhouse, which features 8 private bathrooms that are spacious and climate-controlled. The climate-controlled laundry room has 7 washers and 8 dryers, all coin-operated. It includes folding tables, an iron and full-size ironing board. The laundry room is open 24 hours.

Kids, teens, and the rest of the family will enjoy the game room. Featuring pool tables, arcade games, air hockey, ping pong, table soccer, and more, the game room is perfect for beating the heat in summer or chasing away the rainy-day blues. There’s also volleyball, basketball and tetherball outside, as well as a children’s playground.

  2. Glenn I don’t think there is need for cable tv connection as it’s a beautiful place with lakes , game rooms , parks.So I don’t think you would get time to watch tv. I have been here once and had great fun.

    We really liked this campground. Large sites, nice lake, nice path around the lake and good hosts. Just far enough away from the shore to be peaceful and quiet but close enough to drive in and see the sights. Will stay again if and when we get back down to the area.

    Super nice park, but after driving 5 hours drive from the moutains to the beach I want to be 40 feet from the water not 14 miles. Would be a great Foothills campground.

    The campground is perfect except it has no cable tv connections. That is the only reason I do not stay there. Time to get after Time Warner to get you connected.
