May 7 Absolutely Beautiful by Denise
We are from Pennsylvania and enjoyed a couple of days at White Pines this past weekend. The trails were beautiful and teeming with life! The forest floor covered in purple and white flowers. It was very peaceful. The cabins are quaint and authentic log cabins. We had alot of fun searching for fire wood in the forest and our fire burned for hours on end. All in all a great time.
April 5 Visually stunning! by Hikes with Dog
Great place for day hikers of all levels. Pet friendly. Trails are very well marked. Trails are short. However, scenery is breathtaking and changes with each trail. Trails range form medium to hard. Best time to go is during the week when it may not be crowded.
September 22 Most Colorful Season by MALIII
Was there for the BAMBA Camp Out with friends hiked all day and slept as we have never in our lives from the wonderful clear air and pine trees surrounding the area. Cooked our meals and had a wonderful time telling stories as the sun set in the evening. Hated to leave such a wonderful area and look forward to returning with new friends and family, of course, other than Bill and The Chipmonks.

It was wonderful!!! But beware of racoons, at nighttime, when you are enjoying majestic flames and fairy crackles of the fire they are alert and in search of something to eat around or even in your own tent ;)

May 29 Favorite camping site by Allan
This is a special and unique park. The park is surounded by lime stone bluffs and has ample and well maintainted camping grounds. Trails within the park of wide variety and several of the trails sport stepping stones to cross streams. Even to get to the camping site you drive through a small ford in a river. Lastly, at the main lodge they have a great and inexpensive buffet.
September 5 Many childhood memories by snoflakeiam1950@aol.com
I am 57 years old and spent many happy days and nights visiting this wonderful park with my family and friend! We live/ed in Aurora, IL and White Pines is the place of some of my favorite family memories. I visited it again in mid-August and am hoping to have a family gettogether there soon!

May 23 Best of the best parks by Steve Guziec
My grandfather took my uncles and father to White Pines, my father took my brothers and me here, and I plan on taking my children to White Pines. The ground here is like sleeping on air and the smells of white pines lull you to sleep. On Sunday mornings you wish it was Friday because you don?t want to leave. The bathrooms are always spotless and the rangers are like a next door neighbor. I love this place!!!! THANK YOU WHITE PINES!!!
