Big Sandy


Family Camping


It's of no surprise, Big Sandy has been offering family camping since the early 1970's.  

Our location has been blessed by Mother Nature and gently assisted by the hands of a family business. ​

We offer varied experiences based upon the needs of our visitors.

Whether you are passing through the area,

looking for a place to overnight;

to seeking a monthly camping experience residing in the region for a longer term; 

as well as weekend camping adventures for our regional friends;

or seasonal opportunities for the family who lives nearby.

We have a spot for everyone

& promise to deliver an unforgettable & memorable experience!

REI Campfire tips:

To burn a successful fire, you’ll need three types fuel: tinder, kindling and firewood.

  • Tinder includes small twigs, dry leaves, needles or forest duff.

  • Kindling consists of small sticks, typically less than one inch around.

  • Firewood is any larger piece of wood and is what will keep your fire going long into the night.


Come to visit and explore the Oak Openings region from our camping location. Biologists call it oak savanna. The Nature Conservancy has anointed it as “One of America’s Last Great Places,”  in a class with the Florida’s Everglades and the temperate rain forests of the Northwest as one of earth’s rarest habitats. This long and relatively narrow band of sandy soil just west of Toledo, Monroe, and Detroit that so many people call home is also home to dozens of rare species.
