  • Stopped for a walk around the lake. Pretty views and a nice beach area. Nice playground for the little ones too.  more »
  • Great water for swimming or boating. Good access. Family friendly. Very clean restrooms. Spacious shower rooms. Tent pitches good sizes. Great place to relax and get away, but still close to get supplies. Plenty of local attractions off site to explore.
  • White Lake State Park is always a great place to bring the family, a date, or even just yourself. There is so much to do here; swimming, trails, boat rentals, playgrounds, cookouts and more. There are restrooms and changing rooms available but beware that some of the stalls are very cramped and may be harder for some people to use comfortably. (The one I used had the toilet almost right against the stall wall on one side.) White Lake is usually pretty busy during the Summer season but always kept clean. Worth the trip.
