RV Park and Campground Briefs
From The DigitelMyrtle Beach:
Lakewood Camping Resort was named the Best Campground and RV Park in South Carolina by OfficialBestOf.com.
Founded in 1959 by Carl and Marion Perry, the campground continues to be owned by the Perry family and has led to the formation of the Lakewood Campground Ministry.
This isn't the first prestigious award for Lakewood. For the 2010-2011 season, it received the National Mega RV Park of the Year award. In 2011, it was awarded the Plan-It Green Award by the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) for its green initiatives, which included educating guests and being eco-friendly.
From the Coldwater Daily Reporter:
Branch County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) deputies are investigating the break-ins last week at 40 travel trailers, campers and buildings at the Tip-Up Campground, southwest of Quincy. The crimes occurred early last week.
BCSO Deputies Steve McManamey and Frank Barker spent two days on the investigation, which saw a lot of destruction during the break-ins. Windows were broken out, even after doors were kicked in, causing thousands of dollars of damage.
Officers indicated items taken consisted mostly of those that could be taken and easily sold with some valuable possessions left behind.
The investigation has been hampered because most of the owners are out-of-state residents who use the campground during the summer.
