Situated on 129 acres along the shore of 4000 acre Hardy Pond, this Park's "Up North" look and feel makes it hard to believe that Grand Rapids is only 45 minutes away. This park offers 176 campsites, 26 of which are full hook-up, and 11 camping cabins. A three-lane modern boat launch and dock rentals are available. Additionally, this park features a swimming beach, picnic area, play areas, and a group camping site. A pavilion is available for reservations, next to the official trailhead for Michigan's Dragon at Hardy Dam.

In anticipation of a timetable being announced this summer for the future Hardy Dam Project, the 2022 Sandy Beach County Park Seasonal Campsite and Boat Slip Lottery will take place on Saturday, September 25, at 8 am. 2022 Lottery packets and tickets are available at the Sandy Beach Office sometime in early September.
