The park is nice and there was ample parking but there are a lot of extra fees that add up. The space was $36 for the night, add $5 for reservation fee even though we didn t have one, $6 vehicle fee for the truck, and $6 vehicle fee for the fifth wheel and total was $52 for one night off season.
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. The park offers modern and semi-modern camping with 25 water, sewer, and electric sites, 72 water and electric sites, 28 electric sites and 100 sites without hookups. The campground has 2 bathroom/shower buildings and a sanitation station. There is a large semi-modern group campground for youth organizations, family, church groups, and camping clubs. Also available are picnic areas, large sandy swimming beach, playground, boat launch, and dock rentals. Sandy Beach also includes sites with full hookup, pull through, water views, new camping cabins, and a picnic shelter.
