This quiet state park is situated on White Oak Lake, a popular fishing lake. Watchable wildlife and birding opportunities also abound here. Park facilities include 45 campsites (four Class A, 37 Class B, and four tent sites), a newly renovated private bathhouse, visitor center with exhibits, store with fishing supplies, marina with boat rentals, launch ramp, pavilion, picnic sites, and playground. Hiking trails and a mountain bike trail lead through marshlands and up to tree-lined ridges. Bicycles can be rented at the visitor center. In the summer, enjoy interpretive programs. Poison Spring Battleground State Park is just 8 miles away. Its interpretive display is located in the White Oak visitor center.

The park provides camping, picnicking, hiking and fishing year round. Fishing supplies, boats/licenses as well as T-shirts and souvenirs are available. A free launch ramp near the boat dock provides easy access to the lake for those with their own rigs. There is no horsepower limit on the lake.

Camping - Most of the 45 campsites along the lakeshore have 30 amp power and accommodate the latest RVs and trailers. The bathhouse and rest rooms remain open year round. Water and electricity are provided at 41 sites; the remaining four are open to tent campers only. A dump station is near the bathhouse. Campers and picnickers can obtain firewood at the Visitor Center.
