Sandy Beach Dune and Willow — Glendo State Park

3 Reviews


State Park

Sandy Beach is a large, white-sand beach on the eastern side of the reservoir. The beach provides a spectacular view of the reservoir, and Laramie Peak to the west. The wide open sand and gradually sloping shoreline give plentiful opportunities for swimming and water recreation, which makes Sandy Beach one of our park’s most popular summer destinations. Campsites at Sandy Beach are divided into two campgrounds: Sandy Beach Dune and Sandy Beach Willow. There is a fee booth at the entrance to these campgrounds as well. To access Sandy Beach, follow the standard directions to access the Glendo State Park Main Fee Booth. However, once you are headed south on Glendo Park Road, follow it past the main fee booth and over the dam. After you have crossed the dam, stay on Glendo Park Road for another 8.5 miles, until you see the large sign for Sandy Beach. Turn left, following the signage until you see the Sandy Beach fee booth; go through the booth entrance to access either Dune or Willow Campgrounds.

Not being kept up

My husband and I are Wyoming residents who have been coming here for years. We went 3 times this last summer. This place is being treated terribly, not being cleaned and kept up, and the park is profiting off of out of towners who are coming in and taking over our land. The bathrooms in sandy beach are disgusting with the exception of one that appears to be cleaned daily. There were branches and debris everywhere and fire bans were in effect all summer long. Fire pits are there for a reason and have been forever, with our ancestors. The fire bans are completely unnecessary. The water level of the lake had shrunk significantly each time we came back which shows that it was not being refilled at all. And on top of all of this they were charging at least$5 more a night than the previous year. If you’re going to be taking our money and charging us more, then you need to take care of this land and stop allowing out of towners to come and take it over. This is our land and this is not going unnoticed by your residents.

Dusty Where did the water go??

Sandy Beach Willow campground one of the only two sites with power but no water. It was okay after we cleaned it up. Water was so far away we didn't bother. It could have been much better. Noise, overcrowded, and trash. Come on; people pick up after yourselves.

Group Weekend at Sandy Beach Campground

A group of friends and I stayed at Sandy Beach Campground in Glendo State Park. Overall, the campsites were great. The two sites we had reserved, 1520 and 1521, were spacious, clean, and sat right against the high water line providing great views of the reservoir. Unfortunately, the week we went (last weekend in July 2017) there was a fire ban in place which was a bummer, but did not really keep us from having a good time. There is also plenty to do on and around the lake. We spent the weekend kayaking, swimming and floating on tubes and also took some time to enjoy several of the hiking trails in the park. Sandy Beach campground, being true to its name, provides a great two mile long beach to relax and play on.

The downside to the trip, and reason for only four stars, was that we had booked the sites several months ahead and were under the impression that we had paid for two cars at each of the sites (four cars in total). However, when we got there we were told that only two of the cars were covered and the other two had to pay extra ($36/car I believe), which was close to the amount we had already payed for the campsites. This was a little frustrating since our reservations never said there would be an extra charge and we did note that there would be two cars per site (we had also called ahead). In the end, we decided to chip in for the additional vehicle charges and just enjoy the weekend.
