This place was very busy. We asked for a site with full hook-ups and they put us in a pull-thru site (yay!) but it didn't have sewer (boo!). We asked if they had a site with full hook-ups and they said they did but it was a short and narrow site. We would just barely fit but we were welcome to check it out and if we wanted to take it to let them know. They weren't kidding, the site was very short and narrow so we stayed in the pull-thru site. They only had the honey wagon on Monday and Tuesdays so we were not able to utilize that service either. We ended up cutting our visit a day short. We checked out the showers and while they appeared to be clean, they were old and the floors were always wet so we didn't want to use them. Our site was long but narrow and our neighbor, who was a seasonal patron, had some of his items (dog pen, 2 screen houses), extending into our site some, which made heading over to take care of our hookups awkward. There were mostly seasonal patrons who were all very friendly as were the staff. Like I mentioned earlier, it was a busy place with dogs barking at 6 am and kids riding bikes shortly after. If you are looking for a place with lots of friendly people and activities, this would be a great place to visit but with a smaller camper. If you are looking for a more quiet experience, you may not enjoy your stay. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
Visit Block Island. The ferry is about a 45 minute drive to Point Judith but the visit to the island was the highlight of our trip. Dogs are welcome on the ferry.
Nice large, wooded campground. Lots of seasonals but they are kept up. Pool looked good but we did not use. Lots for kids to do and campground gets busy on weekends. Minor computer problem on check in but they assigned us a site and we went back later to pay. We had a gravel pull-through site with room for slideout and only needed a little leveling. No problems with utilities. Restrooms are older but kept clean. We would camp here again. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed memorial weekend, first visit. We had some trouble initially getting to our site do to trees and width of roads but with the help of an employee we made it. Everyone at this campground is very friendly and nice, owners checked in on us several times during the weekend. We had a large site but some appeared small. Hilly. It was nice to see so many campers partaking in the activities, each event was full up and enjoyed by a large group. It was also nice that the events were fundraiser for areas organizations, like the duck races in the stream. Our kids loved boating on the small pond and exploring in this wooden area. The roads are tough to navigate, we understand they want the trees but this made for a scary ride in and out. Camp store is small but there are stores a couple of blocks down for shopping. Just really nice people. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Nice campground . New owners making many improvements. Site was large and nicely treed. Owner assisted us in parking our 5th wheel and was very friendly and helpful. Had planned on one night but stayed three. Would stay here again. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I would stay here again even though it's very geared toward seasonals. The access road while narrow was well maintained. The staff was very helpful. While it isn't the best access from the Interstate it was a very nice, quite campground. If in the neighborhood, I would stay here again. Given the fact it is rather remote, cable would have been nice. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park .... Saw Mill road was a little scary, it is definetly a one vehicle road, but if you know what you are doing, you will be fine. Our motorhome with tow is 62 ft long and we were just fine. The pull thrus they have are 40ft long, so we unhooked out truck. People there are all very friendly... most are permanent, but very nice. There is a little snack bar there and we enjoyed that. This would probably a very busy place during the summer, but it was fairly quiet when we were there after Labor Day on a Saturday. Would visit this spot again. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Motorhome.
Would never attempt to take any motorhome or travel trailer bigger than a pop-up. Roads are horrible, insanely narrow due to large pines that should be removed. Roads are very rough due to large tree roots, buried rock, and loose gravel. Terrain is extremely hilly. Management and staff were very courteous. WiFi was very weak and unprotected. No cable. Satellite impossible due to trees. Only 50 minutes from Newport, RI. Easy access to I-95. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Motorhome.
OK campground. The interior roads were narrow and very poor and bumpy. Two rigs could not pass each other in many locations. We were in the J pull through section & it was long & wide enough for 4 slide units. Lots of trees but our rooftop dish worked OK. Sprint cell phone intermittent, and its Internet didn't work. Park's Wi-Fi worked well for us. Laundry was outside in a lean-to with new clean machines but being outside it was dirty. $1.50 to wash or dry. Staff was friendly but office open only from 1 to 5 PM; they did cruise the park in a golf cart. Pool was busy with kids. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Very disappointed, kids all over the place not being supervised by anyone. Bikes, dogs, all over. Again no one supervising and inappropriate language. Try to find a staff member to help you. Signs marking the campground are non existing, make sure you bring a map. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff non existent. Seemed like they mostly cater to seasonals. Barking dogs and children wandering through sites. Plumbing needs some updating. Heavy equipment through campground at 7 am on Saturday morning along with the chainsaws cutting the campfire wood. (staff) Our site had the septic tank in the middle of it, kind of smelly. Sites narrow. Overall visit was OK. Probably won't go back. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Not well marked from the highways. Very narrow roads throughout campground with lots of trees everywhere. Small sites, mostly seasonals. The few "big rig" sites are in the middle (J Section) with a very narrow road to access them. We were lucky to get into our site with 6 inches to spare on power post (we have a 40-foot fifth wheel)! Our neighbor's awning was over our sewer connection. New folks came in with 35 foot fifth-wheel and didn't make the very narrow turn - ran right over the power post on the end. There is a security gate used during the day, but it is left open at night! Our site was definitely not level - had to use 3 levels of lego blocks. Lots of planned activities for kids. Quiet times are strictly enforced. Will not stay here again - not worth the fee charged. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
The trees made it a little difficult to maneuver through to get to our site. I was glad we didn't get a site in the J section as they looked really cramped together with no shade. Playground was great for my kids. Rec. hall was nice. Lots of activities for the kids. The free use of the canoes, paddle boats, and row boats in the pond was one of my kids favorites. Pool was nice with plenty of seating around it (I counted 62 chairs) Lots of kids having fun and for the most part were well behaved. I would go back again as my family loved it.

An older campground that is very much starting to show its age. Everything is packed in with a crowded feel to it. Driving to our site was not easy because the roads are narrow with a couple of turns that are tight. Our site was not even close to level and most others appeared to be the same way with water pipes running between sites on top of the ground. The bathhouse was probably the worst I have used in a while; it was old and not so clean with holes in the screens for the bugs to come in. It didn’t even have a soap tray in the shower and for some reason they keep the doors open and you can walk by and see peoples feet under the stalls. On a positive note, the kids loved the pool and arcade. They also have a pond with canoes and paddle boats that you can use free of charge. And, the wi-fi worked very well at our site. However, the few positives didn’t make up for the overall bad feeling I got from the place. As soon as I arrived I was sorry I had come and that feeling never went away.
