Description

Well, what do we have here? Sandy beaches in Minnesota? Hellooooo summer! When you have the urge for some sunnin’ and swimmin’, look no further than McCarthy Beach State Park's Side Lake Campground. You're going to want to take your time here, so post up at one of the tent- or RV-friendly sites (some with electricity). They're located right in between two gorgeous lakes and near the boat launch and fishing areas of Side Lake. Just across the road from camp, you’ll find the Sandy beach at Sturgeon Lake, voted one of the top 17 best beaches in North America. Need we say more?
