Overview

Overview

Sandy Cove Campground is located on the north end of Canton Dam in northwest Oklahoma on the North Canadian River, just 2.5 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.

Natural Features:

The campground is nestled in a woodland of blackjack oak and post oak trees, providing an excellent camping environment.

Recreation:

Canton Lake is known for its fishing opportunities, especially walleye fishing. The Walleye Rodeo fishing derby is held annually in May and draws thousands of visitors to the area.

The lake's gently sloping sandy beaches are inviting for swimmers and sunbathers. Water skiing is popular on the broad expanse of water paralleling the dam, where winds are subdued.

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.

Nearby Attractions:

A major attraction for hunters is the 14,877-acre Canton Wildlife Management Area. This year-round park is home to bobwhite quail, deer, squirrel, wild turkey, dove and waterfowl.
