From the restaurant's website:
"Whitey and Ann Ham opened Whitey's Fish Camp in 1963 while Whitey was employed in the U.S. Navy. The original fish camp consisted of a tackle shop with nine bar stools, a toaster oven, soft drinks, beer and sandwiches. In 1969, they converted an old storage room into a dining room and remodeled another room, that housed bait tanks, into a full kitchen. ... In 1988 the "new" Whitey's Fish Camp & Restaurant was built complete with a full-service bar, kitchen, dining room, and outside deck."

"Do you really love catfish? Do you enjoy working for your dinner? If so, Whitey's Fish Camp is the place to try fried catfish that has not been farm raised. These beauties are caught wild, then fried up whole (but headless and skinless), and brought to you until you tell your waitress to stop. ... Whitey's is really a fish camp."
— Bruce Bilmes and Susan Boyle, Roadfood.com, Nov. 18, 2010
ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Kids' menu. Full bar. Serving lunch Tue–Sun, dinner nightly.
