A stay at Sandy Pines Campground is guaranteed family fun. In addition to being an RV and campsite, Sandy Pines offers some awesome glamping options including glamping tents, vintage trailers, conestoga wagons, domes and unique tiny houses. There are two styles of glamping tents, the family tents and the couple tents. The couple tents have a king bed, AC/heater, lighting, fire pit, bathroom amenities, linens, cooler, mini fridge and outdoor seating. The family tents have the same amenities as the couple tents, but have a king bed and two twin beds with two tents together, or you can have a king bed and one daybed or trundle. The other glamping options, like Airstreams, huts and wagons are only designed to sleep two and aren’t meant for families. They have the same amenities as the glamping tents, but only have a single king or queen bed. None of the glamping options have private bathrooms, but rather access to the shared bathhouses.
Onsite, the Grand Lodge is where you go for information or to get supplies at the general store and snack bar. For the kids there is a fun Kids’ Kamp with craft sessions and games. There is also a playground and a big grassy area with exciting lawn games like cornhole, ladder ball and volleyball. Additionally, there are always daily events happening at camp, like Sunday Bingo as well as weekend events, like Treasure Pines and Spooky Pines.
