Admin: Carmalee Scarpitti

For five days each year, Myrtle Beach's Lakewood Camping Resort is transformed into a horse campground. Bring your own containment. Some sites have trees to string up high ties. People also use corral panels and hotwire pens. No grass forage is available, bring sufficient hay and grain for the five days.
