Giant Whitepine Campground

Name: Giant Whitepine Campground

Giant White Pine Campground is named after a 600 year old white pine that died in 1998 and was cut down in 1999. It is still lying in the campground as a reminder of its existence. The campground is densely forested and is paved throughout - many of the campsites away from the road are very cozy! We visited in 2010 and again in 2017 so you will see pictures from both visits.

Campsites: There are 14 camping sites in the campground. Some sites have long driveways for parking your large RV while others are much shorter. Most campsites have a pine needle ground cover, picnic table and fire pit.

Host on Site: We did not see a host on site. We are thinking the host for Laird Park is also the host for Giant Whitepine.

Water: Yes. A little metallic smelling, but it tasted okay. I would prefer bottled water if I was spending any time here.

Spent the night a day at the campground and had a great evening. The only problem we had was during the night there was an owl making noise all night and there was a bunch of branches breaking around us all night long and it wasn’t until the morning that we found out that it was a Cow Moose hanging around our tent all night.

This is my favorite campsite in this area! So beautiful!
