A small portion of Sandy Beach Campground will be closed during Memorial Day weekend in order to complete a tree cutting and trimming project.

Due to continual high water events, moving soils, high wind, age and the nature of cottonwoods, many of the trees in the area are in decline and struggling to survive. Glendo State Park had started an initiative to increase forest health by thinning and trimming trees that are dead or dying.  This work has progressed well, however this heavy dose of spring rain and snow has slowed the cleanup of the downed trees. 

While most of the campground at Sandy Beach will be open, there will be a few sites that won’t be ready by the Memorial Day weekend.  The rest of the park is open and is ready for visitors.

“Glendo is a great place to spend the holiday weekend,” Brian Johnson, Glendo State Park superintendent said. “At this time we don’t know the exact number of campsites that won’t be open but suffice it to say it will be a small number. We’re putting all our resources into cleaning up as much tree debris, and opening as many sites as possible. Our goal is to provide a wonderful camping experience to all visitors coming to Glendo this weekend.”

Glendo will also be opening a new fish cleaning station prior to the weekend and by the end of summer look for new yurt camping and an expansion of Bennett Hill campground
