Birds at the Beach

  • 22 Apr 2018
  • Ocean Lakes Family Campground, 6001 South Kings Hwy., Myrtle Beach, SC 29575


Call Ocean Lakes as soon as possible and make your reservations, 877-510-1413 and remember to tell them "Birds at the Beach". If you are planning on coming early and staying after the rally you will have a better chance of the site being open for the extra days if you reserve early. We will be in the same area, HH section, but again all sites are not available so another reason the call early. 

The rally dates are Wednesday April 18 to Sunday April 22, 2018. We have sites reserved for that entire week, April 15 through the 22, 2018.

To all our friends, 
Karen and I are honored that you came to the beach and helped make this rally an enjoyable experience. The above agenda is simply a suggestion and there are no requirements to attend all or any of the functions. Hopefully there was enough time left open to enjoy the beach, friends and attractions. If there are suggestions, please feel free to contact us directly.

We would like to thank the “Wanderlodge Owners Group”, without WOG this rally and many others would not ever happen. Thanks to Vintage Birds and Coachcraft for their help with the rally along with everyone that assisted.. 

Even though we call this “Birds at the Beach”, attendance is not restricted to Wanderlodge owners or even motorhomes. Invite your friends to come next year. By the way, the dates for 2019 are April 10th to 14th, come early and stay late. You can make your reservations now by calling Ocean Lakes. (MAKE SURE TO TELL THEM “BIRDS AT THE BEACH”). 

Again, thanks and hope you have a great time!
Bryan and Karen
