South Sandusky Beach at Rend Lake


Yes! Rend Lake is home to the beautiful South Sandusky Beach. It is one of the best beaches in southern Illinois!

The South Sandusky Beach at Rend Lake offers a large sand area, buoyed swim area, shaded picnic sites, foot showers, large change/shower houses, restroom facilities, walkway down to the water, and two reservable picnic shelters.

South Sandusky Beach is just north of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers Rend Lake Visitor Center. It is a great place to review safety rules and information. Always follow water safety rules.  While there, pick up a copy of the Rend Lake brochure and map and the Rend Lake Visitors Guide.
