DUE TO THE CURRENT FLOOD EVENT AND IN THE INTEREST OF OVERALL PUBLIC SAFETY, THE SANFORD LAKE TRIATHLON SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY, JUNE 24 AT SANFORD LAKE PARK HAS BEEN CANCELED .EXTREME FLOODING WILL CAUSE SIGNIFICANT WATER HAZARDS ,INCLUDING RAPID FLOWING WATER AND POTENTIAL CONTAMINATION FROM SEWAGE OVERFLOW CONDITIONS. IN ADDITION, THE SWIMMING AREA WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. ALL OTHER AMENITIES INCLUDING THE SPRAY PAD WILL REMAIN OPEN. THANK YOU!
Think of it as the little Sahara desert with volleyball. With over a half-mile of lake frontage and 1000 feet of soft, sandy beach on the shores of Sanford Lake, this popular recreation area is a wonderful spot to nurture that golden tan and enjoy the sun. Had enough sun? Why not stake claim to a picnic table beneath a shade tree and cook up some lunch on the barbecue?
Let the kids cool off and play in the large spray pad while dinner sizzles. Or better yet the whole family can play a round of disc golf on a challenging 18 hole course and have dinner later. The boat launch is the best on Sanford Lake with 3 slips to choose from and park your boat at the mooring docks, try out the floating kayak and canoe launch, it's easy in and easy out. Sanford Lake is great for fishing, skiing or pleasure boating. A spray play park for the youngsters, a new fishing pier, revamped boating facilities, and dramatically improved accessibility for persons with disabilities are a few of the planned upgrades.
Here's an idea; next visit bring your entire family or company to share in the fun. The park has four picnic pavilions available to rent that are perfect for large gatherings. Each pavilion has nearby parking, a horseshoe pit, a volleyball court and electricity. If you have a small group and would like your own space we have three large umbrella's that are available to rent. The umbrella's are completely accessible and have barbecue grills.
A special thank you to Midland County residents renting a pavilion in Sanford Lake Park
