This is a purpose built campground for OHV access to the sand dunes. It is not for solitude and relaxation. This is basically a gravel parking lot which resembles the pit area at a racetrack. Super large sites for big rigs with toy haulers. You could park a full race transport out here. Some sites will accommodate multiple rigs. Rates depend on size of your site and whether it has a covered shelter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place to stay while riding the St. Anthony dunes. Centrally located on the edge of the dunes making all the dunes accessible on a tank of gas! Not a lot of trees and no grass...but you are there to play in the sand! Owners and grounds keepers were polite. And some spots had concrete pads to pull up next to. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was the 2nd time we stayed here at Sandhills Resort in Saint Anthony so I thought I'ld give another review. They now have Wi-Fi but it is slow and you have to be near the office to get a signal. I had to have the staff reset it several times as it would lock up. The staff is nutty about watering the grass area. They water so much that the dirt roads become mud holes. They planted new sod in our area but didn't prep the ground first and it all died. Still they watered the dead grass all day and all night long. The day we checked in, the guy at the desk was drunk. Also he tried to nickel and dime us to death. Now the good: the park is still in good shape. The bathrooms and showers were clean and stocked. The staff did keep the rules enforced. That meant I could go to sleep at 10:00 PM and not have to hear constant ATV and sandrail engines all night. We only had one electric outage this trip and they continue to update the electrical system. Water pressure remained low in the middle of the day due to the excessive watering. Pressure was sufficient at night and early mornings. We really enjoyed our 10 day stay there but they still have work to do. Still, I will likely return to this same location in a couple of years. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this park. It's right next to the sand dunes and is marketed to the sand dunes community. It is pricey and they had some problems with the electric while I was there. The sites range from narrow to huge. There are many pull thru sites so you never have to unhook your trailer, toy hauler or fifth wheel. Most sites are 65' long plus. Staff is friendly but strict on the rules. If diesel wasn't so expensive we'd go every year. As is, we go every other year. Bring your off-road vehicle because you can drive them to the dunes from your site. No pool or real club house but they do have a nice store. We camped here in a Motorhome.
