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.

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.

Except for the front 5 sites (I think they are for one-night travelers), plenty of shade. Site was level. Our site had very little space between sites. No cable hookup and wifi is SLOW! Nice restroom/showers and dog run. Pool was at a refreshing temperature. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Still a very nice campground among the trees - which makes it very questionable for big rig access. Last time (see 7/13 review) we were here we were 7' shorter and had one of the pull thrus in the front. This time we're in the back area in a gravel site that is very wide, but was a royal pain to get into with a 44' rig. The problem is they saved a lot of trees when building the campground (which is what makes it nice), but it also can make site access very difficult. Big rig access is problematic except for the pull thrus in the front. Access to the backin sites in a big rig is entirely dependent upon the arrangement of the adjacent trees and sites. We watched a neighbor with a 28' trailer spend more than 30 minutes struggling to get into his site - trees on the front left and front right corners of the site, a single lane access road, and trees right up against the access road where the pickup truck needed to be to back in. Power ok (although it took nearly 50' of cable to reach the pedestal), water ok (60psi, but it took a long hose to hookup), sewer ok. Wifi was pretty much unusable (never did get to their login page). Strong Verizon LTE with good signal strength and decent speed (until the evening). One to two bars for Tmobile Extended, did not try to get a connection. Satellite access is very problematic. No recycling on site. We would stay here again, but only in one of the pull thru sites in the front. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

We planned on staying one week on the way back home but ended up staying 2 because of continued snow up north. Nice,large,pull thru parking on gravel. Sites are staggered so it doesn't feel like u r on top of the next rv. Satellite bathroom is typical cement floor for shower. Bathroom in front is newly redone & tiled. Fairly large area but the showerheads aren't very adjustable so the changing & dressing area gets soaked if you're not careful. Satellite bath also has a pushbutton to turn the water on so u need to push several times during the shower to keep it going. Neither bathroom has heat so you'll want to be quick anyway. The park is super neat & clean, has nice tall trees but don't hinder driving anywhere thru park. Staff is super nice. There's a pool but was closed. Too cold! Only 2 washers & 2 dryers & was so busy the one day I tried to use it I went into town to do it. Would stay here again on our way back & forth. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The park at Rend lake is nice. I walked part of the bike trail. Laundromat in town is reasonable. Uses quarters &the dryers start out for only a quarter and you can add additional quarters from that starting point. Washers are 1.75. Ate breakfast a couple of times at cozy table on hwy 37 going into Benton which is also where the Wal-Mart is.

Stayed here April 19, 2016. Very nice wooded site, no junk around, quiet except for train noise which though not close woke my husband up a few times. I thought it was fine and ok. Sites were gravel and some were a little close , that is why I rated it an 8. It has a pool( not open this time of year) and a dog run . It is like camping in the woods and the owners are nice. We will stay here again, my husband agrees. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is just ideal for overnight or a long stay. Spacious and open gravel site with a fire ring and picnic table. Everything you need plus a very large fence dog park. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice shady park. Great fenced dog park. Big "overnight" pull through site. Easy to get to. Pleasant staff. A little shocked that they did not take credit cards. Not sure about the flock of chickens wondering the park. Maybe eating bugs! Very pleasant. Super clean restrooms. We would stay again. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff very friendly and escorted us to our site. Sites were packed gravel and level. Plenty of room for big rigs. The campground is very nice and clean. They had activities and snacks for the guests and an organized trick or treating for the kids. Little bit of road noise from highway 37 but not bad. Located close to the Rend Lake bike paths, Walmart and anything else you need. We would stay here again. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

The WiFi is at a hot spot, there is no WiFi at your site. The sites were level with packed gravel. The hook ups are centrally located so there is a need for additional hoses. The sites are very close to each other. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park close to I-57, but quiet. Lots of trees, but roads and sites wide enough that no problem for a big rig. We had site 2 where we could get satellite for DTV. WIFI is good. Staff gave us fresh eggs from park chickens that roam around...very cute. We were also given tomatoes from the the garden...wonderful.

The park is well maintained and we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Upon arrival, the front office staff was very friendly and helpful. Was escorted to the site.

We had a pull through site that was clean and well kept.

Lots of shade which was good in the hot weather, but it also kept us from being able to use the satellite. Still appreciate the shade.

Sites are close but manageable.

Did not use the restrooms, but they were clean and well kept. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Nicely treed campground with very friendly owner and staff. Gave us 4 eggs from their chickens upon arrival. Husband said for me to take shower in camper as you had to push a button in shower and it was measured. Then you had to push it again to resume. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Easy access off I-57. Escort to your site and assistance with parking. Gravel sites, very level and well drained. Showers and bathrooms were clean and well maintained. The pool area was clean and the water was clear and refreshing. Only stayed for an overnight, but would return to explore the area. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

GPS has you turn into the campground too soon. Continue south on SR37 until you come to the campground entrance sign on a gravel entrance way.
