ACTIVITIES AND RECREATION

Have Some Fun at Sandy Cove! 

Whether you enjoy a quiet stroll along the waterfront, an invigorating game of basketball, or something in between, Sandy Cove has lots of options for activities and recreation!

Please note: Availability of activities varies by season and scheduling.

  Outdoor Pools and Enclosed Sports Pool with Hot Tub

Sandy Cove - Pool

The Main Pool Complex offers an outdoor pool with diving area and a shallow wading pool only 18" deep. Both are open Memorial Day through Labor Day. Our enclosed sports pool and hot tub, featuring water volleyball and basketball, are open all year round. You must be 15 years old to use the hot tub. In the summer, the main pool complex bathhouse with restrooms, showers, and changing areas is available. 

Our second pool, Perkins Pool, is located in the Pioneer Campground—near the speed bump. This pool is only open between Memorial Day and Labor Day. A bathhouse with restrooms, showers and changing area is available.

Our pools are a “water-only-zone” because state regulations require there to be no food or drinks (which includes gum, candy, soda, etc.) in the pool area. Modest swimsuits are required for adults and children (one-piece for girls of all ages, baggy shorts for men and boys).

Ask about specific open pool hours when you arrive.

 

  Available any time you want to play!

  The Big Swing

Snady Cove Big Swing

Get harnessed up, clipped into the swing cable, then (temporarily) attached to the haul rope. The group on the ground pulls the rope, which raises you into position, about 30' in the air. Once you've reached the top, you can pull the pin and SWING! It is one of those activities that does not require all that much talent, but it is a screamer!

The Big Swing is open during Summer Family Camp, 2-4 pm each Saturday from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and during select weekend events.

Participants must be at least 12 years old and have a signed waiver.

At the recommendation of our inspection company we have a 250 pound weight limit for your safety for the Big Swing.

 

  Zip Lines

Put your harness on, climb up the pole, then take a flying leap off our 42' platform, letting gravity send you rushing down the 420’ cable. Of course, you are hooked in safely at all times, but that first step still seems like a doozy!

The Zip Lines are open during Summer Family Camp and select weekend events.

Participants must be at least 12 years old and have a signed waiver.

At the recommendation of our inspection company we have a 250 pound weight limit for your safety for the Zip Line.

 

  Climbing Wall

A long-time favorite at Sandy Cove, our 30' x 40' rock climbing wall is located in the Palmer Connect-itorium. There are five climbs on the rock wall, with multiple routes on each, as well as a variety of features.

The Rock Wall is open during Summer Family Camp, 7-9 pm each Saturday from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and during select weekend events.

Participants must be at least 8 years old and have a signed waiver.

At the recommendation of our inspection company we have a 250 pound weight limit for your safety for the Rock Wall.

 

  Marina

We have been blessed with a great spot on the water that affords us scenic views and fun activities in season. At our marina we launch canoes, kayaks and paddleboats for our overnight guests to use at no extra cost.

We have two inboard ski boats that can pull skiers, tubers, or the 8-man “wavecutter.” You may make advance arrangements for these activities in season, including the boat, driver, and equipment, for an hourly rate of $90.

Guests may also bring their own boats to use here, though our marina is rather shallow. We recommend calling ahead to make sure your boat will function well in our marina.

The Marina is open Monday through Saturday from 10–5 pm, mid-June through mid-August. During the first two weeks of June and the last two weeks of August, the marina is open on Saturdays.

Participants must have a signed waiver and we ask that adults supervise those under 15 years of age.

 

Archery Tag®

Archery Tag® is played similar to dodgeball or paintball but with bows and patented foam-tipped arrows. This exciting, action-packed game offers the ultimate family-friendly experience that engages everyone. Participants attempt to tag members of the opposite team by hitting them with the foam-tipped arrows. This is a game you will never outgrow!

Archery Tag is available during Summer Family Camp or during select weekend events.

 

Cargo Net

With a harness and helmet, you are on your way to the top of the 30 foot cargo net. You may be climbing alone or have a partner beside you. It is similar to climbing the rock wall but may require additional upper body strength.

The Cargo Net is open during Summer Family Camp. 

Participants must be at least 8 years old and have a signed waiver.

At the recommendation of our inspection company we have a 250 pound weight limit for your safety for the Cargo Net.
