White Rock Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

A short distance from Peña Blanca Lake, White Rock is not large, so it is usually quick to fill. That’s especially true during the hot days of summer -- the peak season for the lake and the campground.

Campsites at White Rock are located on the banks of Peña Blanca Creek in the shadow of a rocky cliff that gives the area its name. A portion of the rock actually splits the campground into two sections. Thirteen campsites make up Upper White Rock and are accessible off Forest Road 39. Two others make up Lower White Rock and are accessible off the road that leads to the lake.

Accessible to persons with disabilities.
