White Birch Campground

Xcel Energy's White Birch Campground is a scenic, secluded site on the shores of the Holcombe River flowage in northern Wisconsin. The 44-lot site is open to Xcel Energy employees (active or retired) and their families and friends throughout our five-state service area from mid-May through mid-October. The campground is also available to members of Arboretum, Inc., an environmental group that once leased the land from Xcel Energy as a recreational area. Arboretum members have planted about 30,000 trees on the site, including many of the majestic pines that grace the area.

White Birch is an ideal campground and locale for outdoor activities including hiking, swimming, fishing, and boating. The area is encircled by a nature trail and features a swimming beach, picnic facilities, and children's playground. Other amenities include a garbage disposal station, toilets, and showers. A newly renovated cabin is also available to rent. The cabin fits four to six people comfortably and features a large family area complete with a wood-burning fireplace that connects to a finished kitchen. Outside the cabin is a covered seating and dining area, a waterfront view, and dock access.

We invite employees, retirees, and their families and friends to visit White Birch Campground soon. It's a perfect place to relax and unwind after a long week of hard work.


White Birch is open from May 1st – October 1st. Please call for reservations as White Birch cannot accept email reservations at this time.

Energy Saving Tip

Rather than crank up your heat in the winter, keep your thermostat at a moderate level and bundle up. (Who doesn't love fuzzy slippers?)

Gas Meter Safety

Keep your natural gas meter dry and clear of snow and ice at all times to avoid the potential for dangerous indoor natural gas buildup.
