About an hour or so west of Cincinnati, is Whitewater Memorial State Park in Union County, Indiana. The park was built in 1949 to memorialize those who served in World War II. It lies next to Brookville Lake and encompasses the 200 acre, man-made, Whitewater Lake. The park offers a range of facilities and outdoor activities that includes picnic areas, a number of playgrounds, a beach, boat ramps onto both Whitewater Lake and Brookville Lake, boat rentals, fishing, saddle horses, and horse trails, interpretive programs at the naturalist’s cabin, hiking trails, family cabins, a campground store, and a modern campground.
The campground has more than 300 sites. Rental fees for sites vary depending on your choice of electric, non-electric, youth camp, or horse camp. Each site has a picnic table, a fire ring, and a gravel drive to park on. Bathhouses with flush toilets and vault toilets are dispersed through out the campground. Some of the trailheads are located in the campground too, but most are located elsewhere within the park.
Be prepared to pay your way through the park. There is a gate fee, camping fee, boat ramp fee, and more… The gate fee includes one daily admission to the nearby Brookville Lake Mounds State Recreation Area which also offers many of the same facilities and activities, although there are no non-electric camp sites there and it’s dominated by RVs running generators all night long.
Sites fill quickly during summer months at Whitewater Memorial State Park. It’s easy to avoid any inconveniences by calling their reservations hotline at 1-866-622-6746 or make arrangements online at www.camp.IN.gov.
All in all, this is an excellent place for families to enjoy time together while experiencing the outdoors, especially if you like lake activities, are an RV camper, or just prefer a well developed campground that offers modern amenities.
