White River Campground History

In 1991, the Hamilton County Parks and Recreations Department (HCPR) purchased White River Park and Campground from the Ping Family. This 26 acre property was purchased as an existing campground. It contained 100 campsites, a camp store, fishing pier, boat ramp, playground, picnic area, and tent camping area. Modifications and upgrades included shelters, bathhouse and restroom facility, laundry facility, riverbank stabilization, campsite improvements, and pond construction.

Campground Amenities
Currently, White River Campground has 106 modern and primitive campsites, playground, large group facilities, laundry facilities, RV hook-up, hiking trails, canoe launch, fishing, river views and access, bath and shower facilities, and picnic shelters and tables.

Restoration Plans
In 2010, plans include restoration and placement of 2 historic steel truss bridges to span the White River and connect the campground to Strawtown Koteewi Park.
