Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
November 20 Our Favorite place to go for vacation by Campers in June From Nevada
We love Black Sandy. Yes it get crowded but that is mostly the weekend crowd we go and we stay for two weeks at a time and the spot we go to is kinda up and out of the way so dont really bother anyone but we wouldnt go anywhere else Black Sandy is the best No complaints been there three times in a row hope to see you in June
June 12 Never again
Need more fire pits, we were suposed to share with the lot next to us.Every lot should have own pit. Too many FWP people picking at you the whole time.We thought we were very careful about liscences and permits and rules and they still found something to ticket us. Somebody came at night and stole gas cans.
June 17 A Little Crowded by Drive By Tourists
This is an old facility that is a favorite of the locals, especially the boat ramp. Side by side camping, overnight boat docking for campers. Has a 7 day limit! White Sandy very close by and probably not as crowded but it is very new.
June 24 A regular spot for us
The camp spots are a bit closer together than you may want, but the docks are nice, the water is warmer at that end of the lake and they have bathrooms where you can actually wash your hands. We spend many weekends of the summer at this camp spot.
May 17 A beautiful spot, but...
You are right on top of your neighbors. Ours were very noisy, and ran a chainsaw for at least 20 minutes at 8:00 p.m.
July 15 our least favorite
It is too crowded and the campers are too close together. No room to move or have a little privacy.
