About us

Our fully stocked shop holds everything that you may ever need for your camping holiday from tent pegs to toilet chemicals and even fridges.

The White River rises in the foothills of the Cornish Alps, originally white with the residue from the old clay workings. White River Outdoor’s building is on the site of the Mica workings at Molingey. Cross over the White River Bridge at the far end of London Apprentice, from St.Austell, behind the Kingswood Restaurant.

When Will and Caroline were planning the new venture, it was decided early on to return to the roots of a caravan and camping accessory shop. If you need anything for your caravan or tent we will either have it or be able to source it or an equivalent rapidly.

 

History

White River Caravans, also called White River Outdoor, is the successor to Mount Caravans, continuing to trade following the retirement of Will’s older brothers, Jeremy and Greg.

In the early 50’s the Hoddinott family used to camp on Par Beach in a trailer tent built by Gordon, assisted by his family. In 1955 the family moved to The Mount at Par and set up a holiday park, caravan sales and ancillary businesses. Will has spent a lifetime with caravaners and campers. A keen scout from the Polkerris group in the 60’s, He is still an active camper.

From the early 80’s Will has managed caravan accessory shops, for Mount and G.B.Caravans. He has an extensive knowledge of equipment, accessories, spares and repairs and, where necessary the contacts to resolve problems.
