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.
