Social Campers

Are you a camper who likes to hang with friends and sing kumbaya around the campfire? Does your camping style involve pooling your camp snacks together or having group meals prepared by your designated camp chefs?  Is nature your backdrop for a weekend of fun in the sun?  If you answered yes to these questions then you my friend are in the right place.

Long Weekends

For over 20 years campers just like you have been coming to Sauble Beach and have made White Sands their base camp.  There’s nothing better than hanging with your squad, playing outdoor games, hitting up the beach and staring at the stars all weekend long.

At White Sands we pride ourselves in the craftsmanship of our facilities.  Our buildings are all handmade timber frame and stone structures, our washrooms are new and clean, and our wood is guaranteed to burn nice and hot. Our store is always well stocked with the supplies you need.  Ask about our special “Wet Nappies”.


  • As broken glass and bare feet do not mix, we ask that ALL beer brought to White Sands comes in cans. So no glass bottles, except for large liquor and cooler bottles.

  • Due to by-laws, generators are not permitted in the park.
