Ocean Lakes Welcomes Harley-Davidson Spring Rally Riders

The Harley-Davidson Spring Rally in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is quickly approaching, and Ocean Lakes Family Campground is excited and ready to welcome bikers!

With the current construction along Highway 17, we wanted to send out some helpful information for all guests.

Due to SCDOT Construction | If you will be heading North towards Myrtle Beach, use the South Gate. However, if you will be heading South towards Surfside Beach, then use Spring Lane to the Main Gate traffic light to make a left turn, which will lead you southbound.

For Your Safety | We encourage guests to avoid the South Gate when heading South. Making a U-Turn at the traffic light is potentially hazardous due to the southbound traffic flow from Highway 544.

Bike Weeks’ South Gate Hours |
Opens: May 9, 2019 - May 18, 2019 à 8 AM - Midnight
Closes: May 19, 2019 à 8 AM - 4 PM

Motorcycle Policies | We want all of our guests who are here for the Spring Rally to have a fun, safe visit. Here are a few, friendly reminders to help you make the most of your stay at Ocean Lakes.

Guests are not allowed to ride motorcycles through the campground. Rope and motorcycle dolly towing are permitted to and from your rental site or campsite. Ocean Lakes does not allow bikers beyond the front area of the campground to ensure the noise does not bother guests who are relaxing. While we have a number of bikers who stay with us, we also have non-bikers staying here.

The following is not allowed in Ocean Lakes:

·      Riding motorcycles beyond the designated area at the entrance (signs mark the boundaries where bikes are allowed).
·      Coasting – Not under power, but with a guest sitting on the seat.
·      Three-wheel rides, such as Can-Am Spyders and Polaris Slingshots, must follow motorcycle rules. They are not allowed in the campground and must park in the designated motorcycle lot by the South Gate.

Motorcycle Parking | Ocean Lakes has a designated area for free motorcycle parking at the South Gate entrance. You must be a registered guest of Ocean Lakes and have a campground-issued orange wristband attached to the bike’s handlebars to park in this area.

Guests should pick up the orange wristband for their motorcycle in the Main Office when they check in. If the office is closed, you can get a wristband from the Main Gate or South Gate. Your site number will be on the wristband, which gives our team a quick way of contacting the bike’s owner, if needed.

For bikers’ convenience, there are two unloading ramps available in the parking area by the South Gate.

Cars and vehicles can park by the South Gate, but only in the closest section to U.S. 17 Business, which is separated from the bikes and designated with signs as vehicle parking.


Trailer Parking | Guests can park their utility trailers at their site if it safely and completely fits on their rental site or campsite.

If that does not work, trailer parking will be available in our West Lot, which is across the street from the campground with easy access off Highway 544. The cost will be $5 per day.

This area is only for trailer storage; however, you will not have 24-hour access to park your motorcycle inside the trailer at the end of the day.

Unloading | Guests can unload their motorcycles at the South Gate parking lot or in the West Lot trailer storage area off Highway 544 across the street from the campground.

We recommend that you do not unload motorcycles at your rental site or campsite unless you have a tow dolly. Remember, you will not be able to ride your motorcycle from your site.

Need More Information? | Ocean Lakes Teammates are happy to help! Feel free to contact Security at (843) 828-4847. That number is manned 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Until Next Time | We hope each of you enjoy the Spring Rally in Myrtle Beach! Have fun and ride safe!
