    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.

    brief stay

    beautiful area. While we were there the snow began to fall so we left a day early. Our stay was nice. Site was spacious. View of the lake was great. Would definitely stay again.

    Happy camper

    This was a very nice camp ground. It’s small. It has a huge beach if you like to swim. The cabins are very cute!

    Great campsite to use

    We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at the campsite. only complaint is that there is no dumping station but we were able to use one further on at Pelican Lake. The camp hosts were wonderful and facilities were clean and kept well.
