About the Campground

Sandy Cove is located at Canton Lake in northwest Oklahoma on the North Canadian River, 2 1/2 miles from the town of Canton. Canton Lake plays host to a large number of campers, picnickers, boaters, fishermen, and hunters every year. It is one of the few places that offer these types of recreational opportunities in western Oklahoma. Canton Lake is known for its fishing opportunities, especially walleye fishing. The Canton Lake "Walleye Rodeo" is held each May and draws thousands of visitors to the area. Nestled among a woodland of blackjack oak and post oak trees, the Sandy Cove campground lies at the north end of Canton Dam. The numerous trees in the park provide an excellent camping environment. Though none of the campsites are adjacent to the lake, Sandy Cove is a very popular destination. Visitor attractions at Sandy Cove include a large designated swimming beach area, a large picnic shelter with a private parking lot, a shower house, and electric hook-ups at all campsites.
