Overview

Sandy Cove Campground is located on the north end of Canton Dam in northwest Oklahoma on the North Canadian River, just 5 miles from the town of Canton. Canton Lake hosts a large number of campers, picnickers, boaters, fishermen and hunters every year, as one of few places in western Oklahoma to offer all of these activities.

Recreation

Canton Lake is known for its fishing opportunities, especially walleye fishing. The Walleye Rodeo fishing derby is held annually in mid-May and draws thousands of visitors to the area for the 4 day event. Personal watercraft use, tubing and water skiing are popular on the broad expanse of water paralleling the dam where winds are subdued and gently sloping sandy beaches are inviting for swimmers and sunbathers.

Facilities

Though none of the campsites are adjacent to the lake, Sandy Cove is a very popular destination. It offers 35 family sites and one day-use group picnic shelter, all with electrical hookups. Amenities include flush and pit toilets, showers, drinking water and a large swim beach.

Natural Features

The campground is nestled in a woodland of blackjack oak and post oak trees, providing abundant shade for the camping environment.

Nearby Attractions

A major attraction for hunters is the 14,862-acre Canton Wildlife Management Area. This area, operated by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, is home to whitetail deer, wild turkey, bobwhite quail, rabbits, squirrel, dove and a variety of waterfowl. There are several resturants located within 3 miles of the lake and also a casino and 9 hole golf course. Roman Nose State Park and Glass Mountains State Park are only about a half hour or so drive from the lake.
