My visit: September 8-23, 2014
There are 25 sites within White Oaks Campground. It is located farther down Table Rock State Park Road from the Main Campground. All sites have 30 amp electric and water hookups. I did not stay at White Oaks, but here are some pictures and info.
Important Directions: Since you have to check in at the Welcome Center before entering campground, and they are on opposite sides of Hwy. 11, be sure to use their address of 158 Ellison Lane for GPS directions to get to the right place. You check in and register there (before 6 p.m.) and they will provide map and info on getting to campground, about 1/4 mile down Hwy. 11 on opposite side. There’s a big loop around the parking area there, so no problems for large RVs. See their website for directions and GPS coordinates.
Even though the East Gate Entrance is directly across from the Welcome Center, due to the sharp and winding curves, this is not recommended for RVs. The West Gate Entrance is the one to use to get into all campgrounds and it’s just 1/4 mile down Hwy. 11 from the Welcome Center.
Note that there is a left turn into White Oaks from the State Park Road, so don’t miss this turn, because just past this, you’ll see the other sign on the right warning: “No campers beyond this point – sharp curves ahead.”
Entrance to White Oaks Campground 1/2 mile from Table Rock State Park Road. You’ll pass a large picnic shelter on the left before getting to this point.
The first road to the right leads past Site #76, a pull-through on the right listed for max 30′ RV. Some sites farther on are listed for 35′. Honestly, I didn’t feel comfortable going down this road in my car and would not have wanted to do it in my 35′ motorhome. Maybe it’s because it was after a rain and the road was kinda slippery and rutty (not paved), but I’d stay off this side road and continue down the main loop.
The next road to the right takes you past Sites 88 – 91 with max sizes from 20′ – 25′. It’s paved and in much better shape.
Site #93 is a pull-through listed for 35′ or smaller RV.
Site #94 is a back-in site listed to accommodate a 40′ RV, the only one said to accommodate big rigs. I spoke to the nice folks camped here from Asheville, NC and they told me about some of the differences between camping at White Oaks and the larger campground. First, they said it’s much quieter here and it seems like families with kids don’t come here as often as the main campground. They said probably because it’s easier to get to the activity centers (swimming beach, etc.) from the main campground. Wi-fi is not available here and cell phone service is not great. However, I could check my voice mail from my Verizon phone, but could not get internet access from it.
Site #95 seemed like the best site for larger rigs in both our opinions. Even though it’s listed for a 30′ or smaller RV, it’s obvious larger rigs will fit here and an easy back in from the road. And the clearance on the driver’s side is much better for those with slides. That and the fact that it has more of a private “yard” makes this the most desirable site in my opinion.
Right across from #94 is a group fire pit. The one restroom/showers building in this campground seemed smaller and more outdated than the other campground, but it was immaculately clean when I checked.
Sites #96-97 are both pull-throughs. #96 is listed for a max RV size of 15′.
Other info: There is no dump station at this campground, so you must use the one at the main campground (Loop A).
