Giant White Pine Campground is named after a 600 year old white pine that died in 1998 and was cut down in 1999. It is still lying in the campground as a reminder of its existence. The campground is densely forested and is paved throughout - many of the campsites away from the road are very cozy! We visited in 2010 and again in 2017 so you will see pictures from both visits.

Campsites: There are 14 camping sites in the campground. Some sites have long driveways for parking your large RV while others are much shorter. Most campsites have a pine needle ground cover, picnic table and fire pit.

Host on Site: We did not see a host on site. We are thinking the host for Laird Park is also the host for Giant Whitepine.

Water: Yes. A little metallic smelling, but it tasted okay. I would prefer bottled water if I was spending any time here.

Garbage Services: No garbage service. Pack in, pack out.

Electricity Available: No.

Restroom: Yes. Vault style outhouse. Giant White Pine has more outhouses than most campgrounds twice its size!
