Hold on to your swimsuits! Ocean Lakes Campground in Surfside Beach, just south of Myrtle Beach SC, is planning to make a splash next season with new water park amenities!

With construction starting after Labor Day this year, the popular family campground plans to add two slides, a 705-foot river, a 61,000-square-foot pool deck and 28,110 square feet of water featuring a semi-covered pool just for the kids. The plan is to have the expanded water park ready for family fun by the 2016 season.

Lakewood Camping Resort, another popular family campground in the Myrtle Beach area, just finished expanding its water park offerings in 2014.
