Semi-Primitive or Primitive - Your Choice
The semi-primitive Rainbow Drive Campground offers two camper cabins, three tent camping
sites, and three RV sites. A shower house and kitchen area on the campground are
available. Our campground is separate from our resort, which is 500 feet down the road.
Rainbow's private island is in the middle of the White River and has no road access. The
island offers a truly primitive camping experience!
Private Island Primitive Camping (Click For Rates)
Rainbow Island is located at the Narrows of the White River just 3 miles up river from the
Campground and Resort. This island is truly for those who want to rough it. No frills,
just beautiful nature and wildlife for the best primitive camping on the White River. As a
bonus, theres excellent trout fishing at the island. There is no land access to the
island. You will need to make arrangements with us to access the island by boat or canoe.
Cool In The Summer!
The water temperature in the White River stays at about 55 to 65 degrees in the summer.
Even in hot weather the river bank is about 10 degrees cooler than the surrounding
environment. And when a breeze blows we call it Nature's Air Conditioner because you get a
cool, moist breeze that is pure heaven on a hot day!
Shower House With
The campground's heated shower house with hot water is 30 feet from each site. The shower
house also features a covered kitchen sink area with electrical outlets so meal
preparation is convenient and easy. Bring a crock pot or electric frying pan with you!
Each Camper Cabin and tent site has a parking space. Please, one vehicle only per cabin or
tent spot. If you need additional vehicle parking, let us know in advance and we'll keep a
spot open for you.
