We overnighted here on our way to South Dakota. The office staff was great, was escorted to our site. Lots of trees. Decent dog park. Loved the chickens and the free eggs. Easy in and out for our big rig with tow. This was our 2nd stay and we would stay here again. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Friendly owners, nice welcome and excellent long level sites ( we have a 43ft 5th wheel ) so we didn't need to unhitch, very quiet campsite no road noise and just the usual train horns in the distance. Each site had lovely colourful flower pot. There is shade provided on all the sites we could see provided by decent tall established trees, free range chickens wandering around which made us think of home and free lovely fresh eggs from the owners for our breakfast. We would certainly stay here again and plan to do so on our return trip in 5 weeks time. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

As is typical of many RV parks it's close to the interstate and railroad. Otherwise this is a great place to stay. When we head out on a trip, we stop here for 2 nights to "shake down" the motor home. It's open year round. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a wonderful park that we have been staying at for several years. The WiFi is good and they have recently added cable to some sites which was outstanding reception. They have a nice fenced dog yard. This is a family run park and they raise chickens. We were given fresh eggs on both stays in Jan and Feb 2017. Sites are gravel and kept very level. There are pleny of full grown trees and all sites have plenty of shade. Utilities are easily accessible. Park is far enough from the interstate that there is no traffic noise. We traveled in a 25' Itasca Navion Sprinter and did not tow. The folks on one side were in a 44' Tiffin with a large SUV toad; plent of room. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Just a one night stay for us but we loved this place. Staff was great and check in takes about two minutes. This place is loaded with mature trees and it felt like we were deep into a forest. They led us to our site and with our size 44' that was necessary. You'll have to trust me this place is simply loaded with large trees. But the trees pose no problem as they are all limbed quite high and spacing is perfect. We landed early afternoon and enjoyed every minute of our short overnight stay. We would return again in a heartbeat. Great CG! We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

This is probably the largest campground I have stayed in. It is wooded and very lovely. The young owner was very friendly.

If they had cable I would give it a 5 star rating. This is a good place to spend a night or two. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great park. Perfect for overnight - close to interstate. Owners live on site - across from office. Not a resort type place, but the pride of ownership shows everywhere. Lots of flowers and carvings. Very clean. Some minor traffic noise but really perfect stopover. I will stay here when ever I have the opportunity. Excellent is all I can say.

We stayed at this campground last year, and it is just as lovely as before. It was raining the entire time we were here, which is the same as last year! Hmmm maybe it's us. We had a very nice long pull through site. Unable to get satellite because the park is heavily treed. No problem navigating. Roads and sites are gravel. Site is level. We did wake up our last morning here with the power out. Not sure how long it had been out. Power was restored quickly. Good water pressure, no cable. Decent wifi. Good drainage, again we had rain solid for 2 days, and no flooding problems. This is a nice quiet park. Pretty and well kept. We would definitely stay here again.

We chose a one night stay at this park due to its location and easy access to the interstate. Our pull-through site was level with plenty of room so that we did not have to unhook. The park is shaded by tall trees that don't interfere with navigation.

At check-in, the manager gave us six of her hens' fresh eggs as a gift. (They were delicious!)

The park is well manicured and scrupulously clean. The bathroom and shower areas were clean and freshly painted, but rather basic. There was no cable and the WiFi worked fairly well, although the park was sparsely populated. A good place for big rigs. We would certainly stay here again. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the best parks we have ever stayed in. The young owner and his wife have only owned the park for a little over a year. The nicest people! The restrooms and laundry are SO clean and there is a salt water pool. The sites have grass and old beautiful trees with gravel level pads. Very quiet and well maintained.

They raise different breeds of chickens and he gives the eggs to his guests.

Wish we could have stayed longer. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park level gravel sites. The grass landscaping was done very nice. There was no chance of scratching your sidewalls because tree limbs were trimmed very high up the tree. I was not able to get satellite but did get air TV channels. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The park is very near the interstate. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed several times at this campground because of its convenient location. It is clean and neat and owners are friendly and helpful. The fenced dog run was nice to give our dog a break from travel. We were in a motorhome towing a pop up trailer so we had 2 sites. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is app. 2 miles off Interstate 57 and offers excellent services for the overnighters, as well as extended campers. Lot's of pull through sites with full hook-ups. Gravel pads. Newer, salt pool next to office and restrooms. Grounds are well groomed with lots of mature, shade trees. Eggs from their chickens are given free upon arrival if you're arrive early. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

As stated in other reviews, this is a very well kept park. Clean and neat. The staff is very friendly and courteous. Reservations were easy and accurate. Our gravel site was spacious and level. Electrical pedestal was at the forward end of the site, and our electrical inlet is at the rear of our trailer. Our 25' cord reached with only inches to spare. I always carry a 50 footer just in case. Voltage was good and stable. Water pressure excellent, and sewer port was clean and accessible. Traffic noise on nearby county road was negligible. All in all a lovely spot. We will stay here again. By the way, they do have WiFi contrary to the listed park statistics. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Travel Trailer.
