This campground straddled a dirt road. We were in the very first campsite as you drive into the area and were satisfied with our site. It was fairly private. It was narrow. We were not able to set up our canopy but that didn't prevent us from enjoying our experience here. We were right on the stream and could hear the water rushing. Other sites were very cramped and close to the road. If we had been in the next few sites in the campground we would've been very disappointed in our experience. There were some sites that were in a circle that appeared to be a bit larger and were accommodating larger rigs. The bathrooms were fine. The pool area looked well-kept but was closed for the season. The manager/owner was very nice. I would recommend asking for site #1 if you are in a tent or popup. If you are in a larger rig you should call to make sure you can get in and out of the campground. If you are looking at the sites that are along the road be prepared to be very close to the traffic. I'm guessing that some tents were less than ten feet from the road. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Tent Trailer.

I was asked by the owner to give a review, good, bad or whatever were his words, just fair. I had an excellent time. The temperature was great, cool at night and in the mornings and warming up during the day. Pool was not open yet but he was working on opening by Memorial Day. We took the grand-kids on the Blue Ridge train during the day and the drive in at night. Also caught a couple of fish which we released. The campground store had just been expanded and looked good to me. Lots of stuff that people forget or need. The bathhouse was clean. We will come back again and I would recommend this place to others. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Motorhome.

Unlike the previous reviewer, we had a large and quiet site beside a creek and enjoyed our recent one-night stay here. Apparently there is more than one section to the campground. The bathhouse was primitive (pull a string to get shower water) but functional and the owner/manager was friendly and helpful. Good location for Blue Ridge or Blairsville. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Motorhome.

Run, don't walk away from this campground. This was the worst ever seen in the 44 years of camping I have done. Sites are way too close together, couldn't get awning up. Even the little TT where having difficulty. You could hear your neighbors do anything. The front of the sites are on a county road so you have to back in your site (private) from a county road. Having children play or ride bikes and feel safe is an issue and the campsite is too small to move around. The county road leads too 2 separate busy main roads in the county. Could not access stream from campsite, sign posted to go to main entrance near bridge. Spk2 to neighbor who stated they came there for years, in the last few years did renovations to campground made campsites smaller/closer...they were not coming back again. Sad.
