White Memorial Foundation provides two distinct areas for family camping. Our purpose is to offer a quiet, unspoiled camping experience without the modern conveniences of some campgrounds. If this is what you seek, you will return here time and time again.
Point Folly Family Campground has 47 sites located on a peninsula in Bantam Lake. Windmill Hill Family Campground has 18 sites in the shelter and quiet of pine woods. From these sites the varied habitat and facilities of the Foundation and Conservation Center may be explored. The season at Point Folly begins early May and ends on Columbus Day. Windmill Hill is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day.  If you are looking for non-profit group camping, click HERE.
