This is a great place in the hot summer days to go and cool off. In the fall, there are numerous trails to enjoy walking your dog or with friends. The beach does get busy in the summer and the parking lot does fill up,...More

The smell of the forest is so fresh as you drive in from the road to the parking area. Plenty of parking and good size lake. Many families enjoying the warm weather and beaches.

Awesome place to go to enjoy the sun and water. Just make sure you get there by 11am or else they close the parking and you have to hike it to the beach

White Pine is very limited on parking. We try to get there no later than 10:30. Once it is closed that's it.
