    Description

    On the banks of Lake Kampeska, Sandy Shore Recreation Area offers just that ... a long, sandy beach. The beach is a great place to enjoy Lake Kampeska, which is a glacial lake named for its clear water. Early homesteaders settled along the shores of the lake.

    Campers eager to follow in the footsteps of those early settlers can easily book a site using the online system. Both RVers and tent campers will find spaces that meet their needs. Back-in sites at the campground come with electricity and partial shade. The facilities at Sandy Shore Recreation Area are designed to make the outdoor experience more pleasant: boat ramp, flush toilets and showers, picnic shelter, playground and game checkout.

    Fishermen seeking the catch-of-the-day will find walleye, northern pike, perch and bass in the waters of Lake Kampeska. You can check out a pole, if you didn't have room to pack your own or decided at the last minute that the fishing was just too good to pass up. Sandy Shore Recreation Area is five miles west of Watertown. In the town, interesting places to visit include the Terry Redlin Art Center, the Bramble Park Zoo, the Mellette House, home of South Dakota's first governor, and the Codington County Historical Museum.

    Who Knew?

    We love State parks. Didn't realize this one was here but we'll definitely stay again. The park is small but every site is close to the lake and the sandy shore (obviously, I guess). Bathrooms and showers were spotless. Hosts were helpful and friendly. Wish we would have discovered it earlier.

    Nice Fall weekend getaway

    Very nice park. Beach was well maintained, bathhouse was clean, and host were friendly. Disappointed there is no sewer dump at this park, had to go to another park to dump waste.
