Very clean, level sites, heated outdoor pool, cornhole games, congenial staff! We stayed a month. Trees mostly shield you from neighbors. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Price reflects a monthly stay (plus electricity). Our site was spacious in the midst of fir trees. The grass site was level, long & wide enough for our 40' fifth wheel and full size truck. The power pedestal was at the back and we needed an extension cord to reach. (Our 5th wheel has the power hook up on the side toward the front). The park owner was very helpful and ran to town to help us purchase the extension cord so we could continue to set up. The park is quiet and peaceful. Beautiful pool. Hiking trail. New bath facility being built. Newly installed WiFi worked well, most of the time. AT&T and Verizon cell service strong. We were here over Memorial Weekend and the park sponsored a BBQ chicken dinner and a pancake breakfast. Park staff friendly and helpful during our month's stay. A great location to see and do everything in Northern Michigan. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is one of the nicest facilities in northern Michigan. The grounds are very well taken care of and it is a great place for rest and solitude. No trashy RV's, late night parties or noisy ATV's and traffic. The owners are always helpful and courteous. The pool is always a great place to relax and there are always games for the campers. There are many lakes and local sites and venues to visit during any planned day trips. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Enjoyed our stay at Whispering Pines. Clear line of site for the satellite dish, no trees over the motorhome, spacious grass site, full hook-up, 50 amp. Enjoyed the heated pool and helpful staff. Wifi was easy to connect to but didn't connect reliably to the internet -- provider having trouble making it work. We stayed for a week while visiting relatives, will stay again when in the area.

We were going to stay elsewhere and switched from there to this park. What a great choice. Spacious, level, grassy sites in what we would call a Christmas tree farm setting. Full hookup site with excellent water pressure. strong WiFi, local, over the air channels, and a wide open shot for your dish to work perfectly! Very friendly staff got us located, and backed in. Just a beautiful setting, and super clean and quiet. Would give this park 50 stars if possible! We camped at Whispering Pines RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

Absolutely superb! We have stayed at several so-called resorts, but this is the ONLY one that truly lives up to its name. The owner and staff provide over-the-top service: ice, firewood, and mail delivered to your site, as well as daily trash pick up. Sites are grass-covered, level, roomy and satellite-friendly. Apparently, this is a former Christmas tree farm, with many of the trees providing shelter and privacy between sites - a really nice touch. The FREE WiFi worked well. This resort-campground boasts a heated swimming pool, basketball, volleyball, pickleball courts, and a 1.8 mile nature trail. The strictly enforced 5 mph speed limit makes this park very kid friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and absolutely look forward to another visit.

Found this park from previous reviews and made an excellent choice. The staff were great. The 4th of July celebration included a picnic with the meat provided by the park and we met some great people (of course). The setting is wonderful. We'll be back when next in these parts!

Beautiful, quiet, well groomed park. Mostly level, grassy sites set among various types of pine trees for privacy. The owner was very friendly. There are many activities for the whole family: heated pool, volleyball, tetherball... There is a 1.8 mile mowed trail behind the park that winds through rolling meadows and fields of pines. Awesome campground!! We will definitely return! We camped at Whispering Pines RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

Enjoyed a quick weekend at Whispering Pines RV Resort & Campground. Quiet, very clean, super nice people. The owner is strict about the rules but we liked that. When people start pushing the rules in a place, the environment might change very quickly. The owner was very accommodating; we had to push off our trip a week. This is a great private campground with full hook-up with very reasonable rates! If wifi is important to you, be sure you mention that at registration or check-in. Wifi is available, but doesn't reach all sites. We will go back for sure! We camped at Whispering Pines RV Resort and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Originally schedule to only stay 1 month. However we enjoyed this park so much that we extended for 2 additional months. Owner is very nice and helpful. The park is very well maintained with owner and workers constantly mowing, edging...and in general seeing that park looks great. Owner is adding 2 additional showers/bathrooms and another laundry room. Lots of walking areas. If you are there over 4th of July...the fireworks are awesome. We would most definitely stay here again. Best summer ever. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is a real find for us. It is the quietest, roomiest and most beautiful facility we have stayed in here in Michigan. We're perched on a hill with a view of gently rolling hills. Sunny sites are made private by groupings of fir trees. The grounds, rest rooms, showers and swimming pool are immaculate. The owner is on site and committed to creating a stay where all campers can have fun yet respect their neighbors. Their are lots of games onsite with complementary equipment available all day, including basketball, a pickle ball court, two badminton courts, tetherball and corn hole. Traverse City, Charlevoix and Petoskey are all an easy 30 mile drive away. This is our park of choice whenever we are in the area.

If you are an experienced RV'er looking for great place to stay, this is it. The sites are huge and level. The sites and areas around the sites are immaculately maintained. The owners enforce the rules to keep the park nice and safe. If you are looking for activities they have them on the weekends. We are usually looking for a peaceful campground with access to local sights and shopping and this is wonderful for that. We used to stay at a fancy RV resort near Acme but his campground is quieter and way less expensive. If you are visiting the Traverse City area I would highly recommend it.

We recently stayed here for three nights. This is a beautiful campground with rolling hills and many pine trees....and yes,they do whisper in the breeze! The owner and his assistant are great. Be aware, they do enforce the rules, which is a great thing as far as we are concerned. If there is anything you need, a phone call to the office takes care of it with on site delivery, even propane tank pick up and delivery. Within driving distance of many wonderful areas. The bathrooms were not open as they are remodeling them but we always use our own. We will return. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Resort and Campground in a Travel Trailer.
