Rates & Reservations

Need a break? Come visit us!

We’re so excited to have you as a guest at Sandy Shores Campground. When it comes to our rates, you’ll notice that charges vary depending on the size of your party and the time of season you’re planning to visit. Additionally, staying with us during the week (Monday – Thursday) is slightly less expensive than staying with us on weekends. Holiday weekends are always in high demand—so be sure and book early!
