Traveling to and from Ocean Lakes on a personal golf car? Check out these new trails for our guests

Guests on their personal golf cars now have a safer, more convenient way to travel in and out of the campground.

Access trails – one headed south, another headed north – are being added near the Main Entrance to Ocean Lakes for guests driving personal golf cars, riding bikes or jogging in or out of the campground.

A new access trail headed south toward Surfside Beach will give Ocean Lakes guests traveling on their personal golf cars a safer, more convenient route entering and leaving the campground. This trail, just off the Main Entrance to Ocean Lakes, connects with the Frontage Road headed toward Surfside Beach.

The southbound access trail, which opened this week, connects our front entrance to the Frontage Road headed toward Surfside Beach to give guests a safer route when the South Gate and RV Center gate are closed. 

No more having to maneuver through the grass near U.S. 17 Business to enter or exit the campground at the Main Entrance when the other gates are closed.

“This trail gives our guests direct access from the Frontage Road to the Main Gate,” Operations Manager Kevin McWhirter said. “It will be much safer for guests on their personal golf cars cruising to Surfside Beach.”

Crews also are working on a north access trail, which will open next week.

Ocean Lakes teammates work on a new access trail headed north from the Main Entrance. The trail is expected to open next week.

Reminder: Golf Cars rented through Ocean Lakes Golf Cars are NOT allowed to leave the campground and are not allowed on these new trails.
