Sandbeach Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

Sandbeach Campground is ideal for off-road vehicle lovers with year-round access to nearly 1,100 acres of coastal sand dunes. The 63 site campground is part of the Sand Lake Recreation Area and home to the dune playground. Parking aprons are paved. Campground amenities include drinking water, flush toilets, campfire rings and an off-road vehicle loading ramp.

Off-road vehicle riding is the primary attraction for campers. The nearby Sand Lake Estuary offers fishing, swimming, crabbing, kayaking, hiking and wildlife viewing. The near-natural state of the 900-acre estuary provides a home to many species of waterfowl.

Two adjacent campgrounds, East Dunes and West Winds, offer an additional 58 campsites (non-reservable).
