Spacious sites in a very large grove of mature and beautiful oaks and hickories. Very tame chickens of many hues wander about during the day. We paddled Rend Lake and enjoyed a day in the Shawanee National forest. Excellent dinner at Seasons in nearby Benton.

This RV park is decent. Has pull thrus, and back ins, some with full hookup, some without. Not all sites have cable. Located not far from I 57. Friendly staff and an escort to your site. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park with good hook ups and level spot. We overnighted here, no cable on our site but good over the air channels. Tried satellite but trees interfered. Park is kept clean and we were led to our site. Trees are trimmed back and do not scrape your coach as you travel to your site. We will stay here again. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice park and a good stopping off point along I-64. A few miles south of the intersection with I-57, but not far. Conveniently located close to the Interstate. Lots of trees throughout the park. Very good gravel roads and good and level gravel sites. Full hook-ups, and some pull-thrus. Satellite bathroom is not air conditioned and is very old and in need of some significant remodeling. Main bathroom is modern and well-kept. Both bathrooms are clean. Huge park. Some sites on the lake. Overall, Whittington Woods is one of the more attractive parks that we have stayed in. Update the satellite bathroom and it would be an A+. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Overnight stay as we headed north. The park looked very nice, even though they were cleaning up limbs/trees from a recent storm. Staff was great, and offered us veggies from their garden. We would stay here longer if time permits next time. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We loved this campground. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They wanted to make sure you enjoyed your stay. They escorted us out to our site and answered any questions we had. They have a lake that you can fish. They have a nice salt water pool it is easy on the eyes and skin. They did have chickens roaming, although they stayed up by their coop. The sites were very large and level. The campground is between the freeway and a busy road. We did not hear any road noise from our site, but other sites may have. Many tall mature trees make it for a very nice park. We definitely would come back to this one. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

This campground is beautiful. Big trees, lots of grass. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The roads and campsites are gravel, however, the sites are level. We were camping with family and they had a buddy site so that we would face each other. The campground is a little out of the way for things, but we will definitely come here again. Loved it! We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

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.
