In this crazy Covid world we are struggling with where we can go and what we can do that offers at least a modest amount of precautions. We decided to take the RV here for the weekend to celebrate our daughters 3rd birthday. It didn't disappoint. It is reasonably close to Dallas (less than 2 hours away) and has amenities galore. The star of the trip was the splash pool. I think my 3 year old could have "lived" there. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. They have strict policies about noise and speeding but are not in your face about it. So they do a good job cutting out the things that might typically bother you in an RV park. They have a nice general store with supplies (no alcohol sold. You can bring your own but it must stay at your site.) Back to the amenities, they go on for days! 3 pools, an inflatable covered "bounce" pavilion, laser tag, shuffle board, washers, horse shoes, basketball, a fishing pond, putt putt golf, gem stone sluicing, ceramics, tie dyeing t-shirts, camp fires a playground, and I'm sure more that I've forgotten. The cost is a bit above what you would otherwise spend at an RV park and there are several ala carte opportunities to spend more (a golfcart for your stay, putt putt, gem stone sluicing, ceramics and tie dye are all extra), though not unreasonably so. They have an on-site grill that serves food typical to a pool grill. One night we got tired of cooking and an Italian restaurant in Lindale delivered pizza to us. The bath/shower facilities were always meticulously clean. There are parts of the park that are new and other parts that they are actively upgrading. They have standard and upgraded RV sites but personally I recommend the standard sites as they are in the trees. The upgraded sites while immediately adjacent to the majority of the amenities, are essentially an open lot with no charm. The sites are gravel with water/elec/sewer. They have additional "cabins" on-site for rent. (Mobile homes made to look like cabins). I did not check them out but they appear from the exterior nice enough. All in all it was a great experience and we will most certainly be back. One very small thing to note: while they do have Wi-Fi, it isn't very good (not that you necessarily need it with all there is to do)

This is a great park if you don't, have children over the age of 10, want to swim in the adult pool/hot tub after 8pm, want to get a room before 3pm on your day of arrival (yes they will make you wait), want to enjoy the park after 11:00 am checkout time (yes they make you leave the park), want to catch any fish in a catch and release pond, want to sleep on beds with mattresses that are so thin you feel the metal bars that are I guess a foldaway bed. Want a refund on anything for any reason? They will never give you a dime back. We left a day early because the kids, 9,10 and 15 were very bored and complained about the pool smelling like pee. The office employees were nice, the location is nice, park was full but after a long day of ensuring the kids have a blast there's nothing for adults to enjoy. Seriously, closing the adult pool at 8pm is a bad management decision. Great park for small children if you don't mind spending a lot of money. I like to get value for the money I work hard for. You don't get that here, I hesitate to call it a tourist trap but...

This was our second family vacation to Whispering Pines Jellystone Park in Tyler, TX in 2 years, because we love it & the people here! Among many activities that can fill every day of the week with fun, our favorite is the Pickleball Courts. But besides all the optional entertainment, excitement, beauty, tranquility, & fun to be had, I gotta say that we remember this place so much for the great people that not only vacation here, but that work here as well. They are always ready to smile & help with good old fashioned neighborly Texas charm, manners, & hospitality. Especially Kate & Dan, thank you guys for making our stay special (& finding & mailing back my charging cable that I left behind). HUGE THANKS for that! And the hard working cleaning ladies, they should be recognized too! I’m gonna give you a hard time again though ... heeheehee ... ya’ll need to finish the last 9 holes of your awesome putt-putt course, and bring WiFi throughout the entire park. Other than that, we will be back again, and again. Love you guys!

As a child, I visited Jellystone Parks with my grandparents. I am thrilled that this park lived up to my wonderful memories as a child and even surpassed them for my son! OUR CABIN We stayed at L5 Loft Cabin on the lake. It is a bit of a walk for small children, but totally worth it for the view and the space. We absolutely loved our cabin. The Lofts have cathedral-like windows framing the lake view- on the hottest days it's great to just sit on the couch and look out. (The cat confirms that this is really the best way to enjoy your vacation- bird and squirrel watching with an occasional fly-on-the-window hunt.) On the cooler days, relax in chairs on the porch or down on the ground, you can sit around a fire. The AC performed very well on a day of 110 degree weather, and the little AC in the loft kept it cool for my son. The kitchen was clean and fully stocked with utensils, cookware, and dinnerware. The bathtub was perfect for the toddler's bubble baths. KIDS ACTIVITIES During our three day visit, my toddler met Yogi and Boo-Boo, splashed at the Water Zone, ate a corn dog and snow cone at the restaurant, mined for rocks, painted ceramics, dyed a Tshirt, enjoyed a movie outdoors, fished the lake, made a fire, roasted marshmallows, played on the playground, watched the Yogi Bear movie at the cabin, and more. He loved every minute of it and is already asking to go back! REGARDING COVID You will sign a big waiver saying that the camp is not responsible if you get sick. Which I understand, but I was disappointed that there wasn't a bit more effort to encourage visitors to social distance. No members of the staff were masked at any of the activities or at the welcome center. The kids activities were cramped shoulder to shoulder at times, there was an occupancy limit at the welcome center but it was not enforced, and the pools were open swim. They did have every other chair turned around near the pool, but the distance between those chairs was far less than 6 feet. With that being said, there is so much space at the campground so if you are flexible and remove yourself when an area gets crowded, you can still enjoy all the amenities and all the children's activities while minimizing close interactions. OLD AND NEW This vacation can be summed up with one moment- My son and I, in our wet swimsuits, enjoying orange Push-Up treats at the Ranger Station, just like my sister and I did when we were very little.

I normally don't give 5 stars unless a place/service is just way above and beyond. However, there's really nothing else you could ask for here from a RV camping spot for the family. Great place for kids, with lots of activities and plenty to keep them occupied. Lots of trees, with a great "State Park" kind of feel, rather an "RV Park" feel. Nice pool and small water park area, with a small adults only pool. The outdoor movie area is fun, but you'll probably want to bring your own chairs. They have wooden benches with no backs. They have firewood onsite that you can purchase, and lots of normal supplies in the store. If you're staying further away from the main area, I'd recommend renting the golf cart. A little expensive, but my son loved it, and much better than walking back and forth. We got a back in site, that was very spacious. Covered picnic table with great night lighting, a grill, and a nice little campfire ring. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the other campers were all very friendly. I'm a single dad who took my 7yr old son, and we had a blast.
