Family Camping

When you go camping are you retreating to the woods to get away and relax? Is your ideal camping experience one with your butt in a lawn chair, drink in hand, food cooking on the fire and being surrounded by good company? If this is your type of camping, then you’ve come to the right place.

White Sands campground has private sites nestled in treed and dune areas. These sites can cater to a family or small groups of 4 to 20 people. Hydro and water hookups are also available.

Long Weekends

White Sands is a favourite long weekend destination for people looking to get away. Located just minutes from downtown Sauble Beach, campers can enjoy long days on Sauble’s 11km sandy beach and nights sitting around the campfire.  Campsites book up quickly so make sure you book early to guarantee a site.
