Sand Lake is a fairly small campground, right on Sand Lake. It's a short 700m down a gravel road so no issues there. Owners were able to get us fairly last-minute into a site for a long-weekend. It's mostly seasonal campers, with about 8 overnight spots. The owners are fantastic - helpful and friendly. Sites are fairly close together, separated by a wooden fence and a tree here and there. Our site was WET: in their defense, it's been raining almost non-stop since spring, so that was not a huge surprise. Showers were clean, washroom was filled with bugs as people seem to leave the door open overnight. Overnight sites do not have sewer, but there is dump station on the way out. I did need to pick up a second freshwater hose to reach. I would stay here again. We camped at Sand Lake Campground & Cottages in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

You're about 30 minutes from either Smith's Falls or Kingston. Yes, there's a village close (either Elgin or Portland) but shopping there is limited. Being right on the lake is fantastic, and there are 2 docks if you're bringing a boat.

Agree with the previous positive comments. I would have given it a 10 if there'd been CATV and a pool. WiFi generally good, but maddeningly slow at times. The owner was a super lady; because the overnighters don't get a sewer hookup, she cheerfully carted down a honey wagon. Lots of stuff to do here (but bring videos as the TV reception is very limited) and in the beautiful Rideau valley. Really nice to wake up right next to the lake, listening to the waves. We'll be back for a week next time, and we highly recommend this park to all. We camped at Sand Lake Campground & Cottages in a Motorhome.

Wonderful park right on Sand Lake. Mostly seasonal sites with sufficient room for transients. The owners were wonderful and extremely helpful. We were given an extension cord and honey wagon for our use. We spent 10 days there and would definitely return. We camped at Sand Lake Campground & Cottages in a Motorhome.

This little campground is a real "gem on the Rideau Canal System" on Sand Lake. Quiet, family camping at it's best. The owners are always on site & although we were only there for the weekend they included us in all the activities, even a free BBQ. We camped at Sand Lake Campground & Cottages in a Motorhome.
