Project Overview

The new Minneiska campground at Whitewater State Park features 40 sites with electrical hookups, four non-electric tent sites, four camper cabins and three group camps. The campground welcomed its first visitors in August 2017. The three group camps each have their own picnic shelters and share a modern restroom building, with showers and flush toilets. Minneiska replaces an older campground where flooding was a recurring problem. A 40 kW solar array will offset anticipated increases in energy use at the new campground.
