We have stayed at this park on a number of occasions and will continue to use it while traveling through the area. Our price included cable TV connection which I believe is an additional $3. The salt water pool was refreshing after a long drive. Our pull through site (3) was long and level but narrow. All the utilities worked well. The park is always clean and well managed. I would give it a higher rating if the price was lower. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We always go to Benton for fuel and dinner. There is a nice golf course nearby if you have time to play a round. Also, the Garden of the Gods located within the Shawnee National Forest is worth visiting.

Sites very close together but host guided us nicely. Bathrooms needed some cleaning. Chickens in the campground were fun to see! We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here for 3 nights in June 2018. Big park with a wooded feel and plenty of room to roam around. The owner is a really nice guy and very courteous. Hookups were maintained and adequate. My only issue was that I was put in a site close to the entrance and right on the end. Normally these are desired sites but mine was small and had a lot of traffic going to and from their own rigs. This became especially annoying at 6 a.m. when people were leaving for work. I would stay here again in an instant - I'd just have a little more to say about where I was placed as the park wasn't that full. Also, couldn't get satellite reception due to the many trees but that was fine with me. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

There are live chickens running around this park. They are big and beautiful like game hens. Just be careful of your dog with the chickens around.

This is a pretty park and has a nice pool area and very clean laundry ($1.25 for Washer, $1.00 dryer) 50 amp, but we had to back up too far on the site to avoid the sewer hookup from the next lot, so we had to use the 30 amp adapter. Unusual arrangement having the sewer from the neighboring site be right outside our door. The park was conveniently located off the highway and was very pretty. Lots of chickens roaming loose in the campground with some duck also and some duck poop around, but not too bad. Owners were friendly. There were several trains at different times of the night with loud whistles. The park was well cared for, but I thought the price was a little high. Cable TV and WiFi worked well, but the site with the cable cost extra. Pull through was level, but as I said, the sewer from the neighbor could have been a smelly problem had anyone been next to us. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy access from the interstate. Attended led us to our site and helped us park. Site was level with mature trees on both sides. Chickens roam freely but did not get underfoot. Sites were spaced well and included pull-thrus and backins. Very pretty park with many trees Negatives were a timed shower that was weak in flow and an occasional train (with whistle) Overall, we would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice clean park with mostly level sites good for overnight or a few days. Would not call it a destination resort. Mixture of pull through and back in sites on packed gravel. Lots of trees so satellite TV would be a challenge. Cable TV on select sites for additional fee. Verizon signal was okay for Internet and phone. Fenced dog run. Pool closed but apparently open in season. Owners have well tended chickens that have the run of the park during the day that are fun to observe. Interior roads are gravel but could use more as it was a mix of mud and gravel in some spots. Utilities worked fine except for water. Area was under a "boil order" which was not shared with us when we made the reservation. Order was not the fault of the campground but they could have shared this with us on the phone. Learned from the TV that any in line water filters used under boil order conditions must be replaced so we lost filters equal in cost to the camping fee. My fault for not knowing this so consider it an alert for future reference. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Office staff friendly. We were given 5 fresh eggs from the resident chickens! We were guided to our site and assisted with trailer placement. Should be a beautiful park later in the spring. Flowers are planted, raised veggie garden ready, and lots of trees. We would definitely return! We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The campground has all gravel roads and sites. Geared to travelers being right off 57. However you hear no road noise. Lost of trees and easy access sites. A lot of pull through sites. Owner was extremely accommodating and guided us to our site. The bathrooms and shower are spotless. Great place to stay plus has a nice looking pool.

There's a big lake a stone throw away. Pheasant Hollow Winery is in Whittington. Swimming is available at the campground pool. Nearby town has a Walmart.

Very pleasant phone and check-in experience. Well run park. Office has a few snacks. Nice neat and clean park. Good for extended stay or overnight stop. A few sites handle 60'+ rigs. Gravel sites with grass between. Very tall trees I imagine will be great for shade, but block Satellites, in summer. No problem for me this trip.

We stayed here for a overnight visit with friends. The park is loaded with trees which for some is nice but for me with Direct TV it wasn't. The park was clean and showers were clean. I myself wouldn't stay again but if you don't have a satellite and enjoy a true park feel I would definitely stay here. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed last night on site # 5 which was a very nice site and very level. The sites are full hookup even in the winter. The park is open year round which makes it nice when traveling south in the winter months since many parks are either closed or have their utility's, ie water, turned off.

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.

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.
