It’s important to take time and relax while on the river. Bring a chair or two to sit and enjoy the view! Don’t want the hassle of packing chairs? Camp Whitewater has hammocks and beach loungers available for you to rent!

2. Coolers

There’s nothing better than having an ice cold drink on a hot summer day! Bring a cooler to ensure that your drinks stay nice and cold all day long.

3. Towels, Mats, or Blankets

Don’t forget to bring something to dry off with once you’re done swimming! Bring your favorite towel or blanket to wrap up in after a long, fun day at Camp Whitewater.
