Quick history behind Whitey’s Fish Camp

The fish camp was first opened by Whitey Ham and his wife, Ann, in the early 60s while Ham served in the Navy. It was a simple spot: A tackle shop with nine bar stools. The menu? Sodas, beers and sandwiches. In the late 60s, a dining room and a full kitchen was added, and in 1980, there was a campground that could accommodate up to 44 RVs. In the late 80s -- Whitey’s added the outside deck and a full-service bar, officially making it the “new” Whitey’s Fish Camp and Restaurant.
