Welcome to Sandy Beach!  

We look forward to seeing you and your family enjoying Sandy Beach.  Our facility offers swimming lessons, volleyball, boating, fishing, bathrooms, picnic areas, a concession stand, and a beautiful sandy beach with lifeguard protected swimming.

Sandy Beach is operated by the Sandy Beach Commission which is comprised of individuals from the towns of Litchfield and Morris.  The commission is a volunteer organization which depends on community support to help with beach operations.

Thank you for your support!
