Description**An enviromental clean up project that required draining Peña Blanca Lake began in late 2008 and is scheduled to finish May 2009. It is estimated, that after completion, the natural refill of the lake will take about 12 months.**
A short distance from Peña Blanca Lake, White Rock is not large, so it is usually quick to fill. That’s especially true during the hot days of summer -- the peak season for the lake and the campground.
Facilities at the lake include a paved boat ramp, a couple of picnic areas, a fishing dock and a trail that leads most of the way around the lake.
Campsites at White Rock are located on the banks of Peña Blanca Creek in the shadow of a rocky cliff that gives the area its name. A portion of the rock actually splits the campground into two sections. Thirteen campsites make up Upper White Rock and are accessible off Forest Road 39. Two others make up Lower White Rock and are accessible off the road that leads to the lake.
