Campground FAQ

Q: What do I need to bring?

A: Tent campers need to bring their own tents and camping gear (up to two regular sized tents are allowed per site). All campers need to bring their own bed & bath linens, lawn chairs, food and drinks, cooking equipment, lanterns, flash lights and other camping gear. We also recommend bringing shower shoes, toiletries, and ice chest.

Q: Do your RV sites have water, electric and sewer hookups?

A: Yes! RV sites have 30 & 50 AMP electrical service, water & sewer at each site.

Q: Is the camper cabin/tent site/RV site on the river?

A: Yes! Every site is on the river, within walking distanceĀ from the water’s edge.

Q: What do I get when I rent the island? What’s there? How big is it?

A: At the high water mark, the island is over 3 1/2 acres of nature’s wild. A picnic table, firepit/grill and boat tie-off are provided on the island for your convenience, but the rest is up to you. There is no electricity, running water or telephone on the island. We only recommend it for the adventurous person who likes roughing it!

Q: How do we get to the island?

A: The only way on and off the island is by boat. Guests may arrange for boat, motor and/or canoe rentals with shuttle services through Rainbow Drive Resort. Or guests may bring their own boat & motor or canoe/kayak and arrange shuttle services through us.

Q: Where can I rent a boat or canoe?

A: Our dock is just a short walk away, 1/8 mile to the resort. We have Jon boats, motors and canoes available to rent. We also have shuttle service available.

Q: Where can I get a fishing guide?

A: We’ll be happy to arrange your fishing guide. Whether you want to spin or fly fish, we have the best guides on the river. If you have fished in the past with a guide you want to use again, we’ll book your favorite independent fishing guide.

Q: Are there mosquitoes at the campground?

A: We don’t have mosquitoes here, so wear your shorts and enjoy the warm summer evenings!

Q: Can I bring my own boat/canoe/kayak?

A: Yes, but you will need to park boats and trailers in our parking overflow area. The public launch access is one mile up the road at Wildcat Shoals. We do not have docking facilities or free public access to launch boats at our resort.

Q: Can I park my car by my tent?

A: Our campground is landscaped to preserve the natural beauty of our riverside camp sites. A parking space is provided within 20 feet from your site.

Q: Is there something for the kids to do?

A: Kids love to catch trout! It’s not unheard of for guided fishing trips to catch 50-75 fish in a day. In addition to fishing and canoeing on the White River, we can help you arrange day trips to amusement parks, cavern tours, swimming, jet skiing and more!
