Gorgeous park with fantastic, shaded sites. Lots of trails to hike in the woods and across the streams. DNR sponsored programs were fun. Popular park was jammed full of families during our visit. Bathrooms seem old and too small to support volume of use. Despite daily wipe-downs, facilities were frequently very dirty by mid-day. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Prior to our visit there had been heavy rains in prior weeks. Though mosquitoes and other biting insects are ordinarily not a problem here we found the gnats to be bad and the occasional mosquito to be found, no doubt because of an increase in standing water in the park and the surrounding area due to the rains. The swimming conditions were not as good as usual either with the water being laden with silt and algae instead of exhibiting its usual clarity. Despite our visit landing midweek we did encounter problems with crowding at the swimming beach brought on by a large 4H group descending upon the beach en masse. Due to the crowding and lax supervision we felt that the overall situation was not safe for our younger children, and left the swimming area until the group moved on to other activities. We did bring the problems to the attention of both the group counselors and the park management both of whom declined to intervene. The dump station has been recently rebuilt but unfortunately is graded so that the pavement slopes away from the sewer connection making it impossible to completely drain the holding tanks on most RVs without blocking up the wheels on the far side to provide some slope. Nonetheless, the campsites themselves are spacious and well screened, with good tree cover. The nonelectric sites are smaller and more closely spaced than the electric sites. Most Minnesota state parks have been suffering sporadic maintenance over the last few years due to budget constraints, and Whitewater is no exception. Some buildings and improvements were overdue for a fresh coat of paint, the picnic tables are being replaced a little too slowly, and there were some sloppy repairs here and there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Heaven. Quiet, peaceful, no bugs. We arrived at 8am and reserved a spot with electric, though it was not going to be vacated until 4PM. Parked my trailer in the office parking lot and went fishing with the kids. We had a great day fishing, swimming and hiking. Moved trailer to site at 3:45 and had a very pleasant and quiet night's sleep. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
