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.

The 2022 lottery has been completed.  Follow us on Facebook as any 2022 Sandy Beach seasonal sites that become available will be posted there on a first-call, first-serve basis in late March 2022.  The 2023 seasonal lottery dates will be announced sometime in early 2022.
