The Camp White training site consisted of buildings and an area stretching to the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. A few miles from the camp were Upper and Lower Table Rocks, flat rock formations hundreds of feet high, and Mt. McGlaughlin which looked like an inverted ice cream cone. In addition to the 300th, Camp White was the training site for their sister battalion, the 299th Combat Engineers.

The Fairgrounds Museum maximizes hands on and live experiences. Most display materials stay in the ownership of the museum, individual or organization which provides them. Live music, video and spoken presentations encourage audience participation. A 1,000 sq foot model railway entertains as well as celebrates the logging and commercial heritage of the region. Large format photography encourages group discussions about the way it was.
