Sandy Shore Recreation Area

Sandy Shore

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.
