Your Wilderness Getaway…
Nestled in a sandy cove, just 1½ miles north of Camp Lochalsh, are two beautiful log cabins. This is Sandy Bay Outpost, with a fantastic view of the lake and the perfect beach for swimming and sunbathing.
Sandy Bay was an original Camp Lochalsh outpost built in the 1960s. Our three bedroom cabin has hot and cold running water, a 3-piece bathroom, and a full kitchen with gas appliances. There are 6 twin box spring beds, plus 2 futons that we can provide bedding for upon request. Enjoy a camp fire or picnic by the shore, or relax on the screened-in porch. There is a gas-powered water pump (we will provide free purified drinking water if you do not bring your own) but no electricity, so guests requiring electricity for medical devices should book at Loch Island Lodge, or outposts Camp Lochalsh or Isle of Jordan instead.
Sandy Bay gently slopes out until it levels off out in the main body of the lake at about 60 ft. Good weed beds provide cover for northern pike throughout the bay. The Sandy Bay cabins have a fantastic beachfront view and a shallow shore perfect for swimming. You can watch the sunset from a screened-in porch, light a late-night campfire, or cast right off the spacious dock out front.
Sandy Bay is also home to abundant wildlife. Loons lull you to sleep at night, and the resident fox will steal your lunch if you leave it unattended at the picnic table for too long! From time to time, a Black Bear or Moose will wander into camp. Most of the time, they pass without incident, but now and then one will take a peek through a window to check out what you’re doing inside!
Sandy Bay cabins are great for those looking to get away from it all and experience the true wilderness without leaving all the creature comforts at home. If you’re looking for a memorable wilderness trip and want to be off on your own, consider Sandy Bay!
