Friendly employees, delicious pancake breakfast, a good variety of activities for children and adults, dj music was a delightful mixture of artists, clean pool, clean bathrooms which is always a pet peeve of mine

Loved staying at Whispering pines. The cabins were nice, the price was decent. Met lots of great seasonal people who were very nice and friendly including Justin and Cameron the owners. The kids were kept busy all day with fun activities. We all hated to leave it was the best campground and vacation we had have in a while. Already looking on buying a camper and becoming seasonal.

Nicer premises then last year when we stay (new owners).

The good:
Bathrooms are in amazing shape, they should be proud! Really impressive, even smell great!

Rec hall is nicer and many of the video games actually work, though pricey.

Menu and service was great.

Mini golf was fun.

Pool was in good shape given the weather.

Weekend activities were good with the kids.

Cons:
The wifi they sounded so proud of when my girlfriend made the reservation is worst in class, absolutely unusable. So I had to leave for 6 hours each day during the week, to use a real wifi network in town at a restaurant (was free thank goodness). We asked the seasonal campers when hanging out at the horse shoe pit and most all shook their heads and laughed saying it is useless for them too.

Weekly activity schedule that they have online apparently means nothing. When we asked the pleasant older lady at the office, she said don't go by what is online. We live 200+ miles away, how else would we have planned the trip? Most campgrounds have very active facebook pages, theirs is not. Perhaps that is where the activity schedule should be?

Train schedule for the kids need to be quadrupled.

Looked nicer and the campers were very friendly, but without being able to plan activities and get work done on a computer, we won't be able to go again this season.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review us and for choosing to stay with us again this season. I am very happy to read that you noticed the many improvements that we have made at the park and hope you will be able to return again to see the rest of the additions we have in the works!

I'm very sorry to read that you had problems with the internet. We are working the bugs out of a new system that has been installed to increase the available bandwidth available in the park and increase the stability of the system. We have had very few issues reported. However, if you do have a problem accessing the free WiFi please contact the front office day or night and we will do our best to ensure that you are able to get access.

Regarding the activities schedule be assured that activity times remain the same during the peak season. Although, specific events / activities may change from the posted schedule based on camper participation, weather, etc. We agree with your Facebook comment and will begin posting weekly activities on Facebook as they become available, so stay tuned!

Thanks again for your comments and we look forward to seeing you on your next visit!

Cameron & Justin

We enjoyed our stay at the campground. The place was clean, fairly quiet and people we met were very nice. Good group to be with. They had a DJ one night and a bad another night. Breakfast on the weekends and other activities daily. Nice pool which got lots of use. I would recommend this campground to anyone whether they are young or older.

Room Tip: Pool and snack bar and entertainment were supplied. Kids could go on a train ride provided daily. Ou...

We have stayed twice this season after purchasing our first pop-up camper. Both times the campsite has been extremely clean. The staff is very helpful! The pool is beautiful and the activities are fun! I have been telling everyone how family-friendly your campground is. The barrel train ride was a big hit with my kids! It was an excellent experience for us. Looking forward to returning!!

I have been going to Whispering Pines campground for two decades. When Clint Ramsden (former owner) purchased the campground about ten years ago, there were many new updates and improvements. Cameron and Justin May have recently taken the reins of ownership and have improved the campground extensively. They are both friendly and there to help as well as the other staff. I was a seasonal years ago and I still visit the many friends I have made over the years. They have a great Haunted House in October and many activities for the kiddies. Its a great down to earth campground worth checking out.

Room Tip: The cabins have no bathrooms but are located near the restrooms and are quite roomy inside

I use to go down just to tent and do some fishing years ago. Went down recently and wow, lots of upgrades. The place looks great. Restrooms are nice and clean all hours of the day and night. Had a great site with a nice view, lots of room. People are very pleasant. Really relaxing, which is the reason we decided to check it out to begin with.
