Located about 2 miles from interstate via narrow, but manageable roads. Careful with GPS. My Android gave me the right directions. The Apple had me turning into a home's driveway. Call for directions. Look for the red barn near the park's entrance.

Owner met us at entrance and pointed to our site. Sites aren't really marked, but a work camper helped us. Sites are level grass and narrow, but long so unhooking isn't necessary. Beware of the trees. Hook ups were appropriately placed although a longer sewer hose would be needed if you don't want to unhook. No cable, OTA, or wifi. Verizon worked. Only 30 amp. Water had a sulfur smell and pressure was low.

Park has a pool, playground equipment, and a very large grassy field for outdoor fun.

No laundry. Didn't use restrooms, but the building looked a little shabby from the outside.

Word of caution: I Googled the park. There's another park two hours away with the same name except it's for males and it's clothing optional. I finally found the Whispering Oaks in Manchester, and the owner told me the name similarity has been a problem for them. Ask if the resort is family friendly before booking if that's your preference.

This rustic park is a little ways off the freeway, but it's less expensive than the corporate rip offs nearby. Good for overnight and probably for a few days as there are many attractions nearby.

Many permanents so book in advance for a transient spot. We camped at Whispering Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

This is not a luxury resort. This is a lovely spot in the woods away from the interstate. Sites are spacious and flat. Utilities are basic. WiFi is OK. Peace and quiet is the main attraction. Wanted to stay a few days but we were on a tight schedule. We camped at Whispering Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

This is definitely a campground, I needed a place to park my RV for several months while working in the area, I can say it is very quiet and the neighbors are friendly and helpful.

The owners are friendly but not very knowledgeable about running a campground. The grounds are kept neat with the exception of 4" of leaves covering the roads. If you need anything you have to drive a minimum of 1 1/2 miles to get to it. The following is what they don't have and may need to provide in order to be a productive and helpful campground: NO drink machine, snack machine, emergency parts for water/sewer for camper, pre-cut firewood, laundry facilities, light fixtures in campground area, play area for children or adults during inclement weather, safe shelter, knowledge of the area places to see/visit, amenities for RV's such as LP filling stations, propane exchange centers, WiFi or satellite. What do they have? Water/sewer/electric hookups, outdoor pool from 9am-5pm, small play ground, large open field well kept, 2 bathhouses well kept, 1 dumpster, and WAY TOO MANY TREES.

I enjoy the quiet, peaceful and friendly people who stay here and I will be staying for several months, I just want to share what you may want to bring before you get here. Happy Camping and we hope to see you soon. We camped at Whispering Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

Rick-Michele, owner at Whispering Oaks Campground responded to this review

Kelly is a wonderful person who camped here shortly after we purchased the campground. Her impression that we weren't knowledgeable may be from our focus during that time on repairing and upgrading the campground infrastructure, which is best done without inconveniencing campers (so they're unaware of what you're doing).

There is a new Dollar General being built around the corner. While we don't have a drink or snack machine, we do have emergency parts, firewood, an inclement weather area (game room) with ping-pong and billiards, a complete area reference with pamphlets for area attractions, and propane exchange tanks. The park only had Wi-Fi near the office and pool areas, but now has Wi-Fi throughout. Satellite is up to the individual, and free TV has 3 -7 stations depending upon your antenna. We don't have a laundry facility as there is one in town 5 minutes away.

Yes, we have a lot of trees and yes that means lots and lots of leaves in the fall. We love our trees and the shade, beauty and camp setting they provide. We clean them up as fact as possible and we've improved our equipment to get them up faster. We're continuing to upgrade the campground, it's amenities and our services to include a Camp Store, more spaces, a larger and more activities game room, a dog run and a fishing pond. Kelly has told us she'll be back when her work brings her this way and we'll welcome her with our new and improved campground!

Nice stop over campground, not too far from I-24. While entry and site roads are narrow this campground can accommodate today's larger rigs if you plan your turns. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Got us checked in quickly in the hot sun. Sites are heavily wooded so you are in the shade all of the day, but this does cause issues with satellite. Needed 80' of coax to get my dish out from the trees. If you have a roof mounted dish forget it. Over the air signals were poor. Being an older campground they do not have 50 amp service nor higher water pressure. I recorded only 20 psi. There are a number of permanent residents which is becoming more common, but these tend to let their dogs roam free resulting in special gifts left in your site for you to discover. Bathrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. I expected more spiders and insects living in them being in the woods, but that was not the case. Would we return? Yes. Even would consider staying for a few days to see more of the area. We camped at Whispering Oaks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is definitely a campground, not an RV park! You get that feeling with all the trees in this park. However, spacing between sites is not the greatest, as your site's picnic table may or may not be on top of your neighbors sewer. You can move the table to a different spot on your site. On the plus side, the sites are quite LONG! Could squeeze two big rig Class A RV's and two cars in each site (although I'm sure that's not really allowed...) Most of the sites appear to be pull through. There is adequate room for slides, but that's not saying much. One of my slides was so close to a tree that my cat was greatly entertained watching the few creatures that hadn't hibernated yet. There is a children's playground in the center of the park. I'm not sure how check in works in the summer, but at the time I was there, it was "self check in" at a barn at the entrance. There were some "special" envelopes for check in, but the few envelopes available had been scribbled on. So, I used a plain envelope that I had in my RV, enclosed a check, and dropped it in the slot. Good TV reception for digital channels over the air. This place can be a great family camp out, or just a good, cheap, overnight place. We camped at Whispering Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

We tried calling several days ahead of time to see if they were still open and never did get a response but decided to give it a try anyway. The bathrooms in the big barn at the entrance were not so good; no one was in the office; and there was a message to check in at Campsite 1...but where was Campsite 1? We decided to go check out campsites and found several pull thrus that were roomy and level. As he was checking out campsites, the manager came in and said to pick whichever site we wanted, no problem. Anyway, sites are long; some maneuvering between the trees but I had no trouble with the 40' fiver. Good antenna reception; good water pressure; good electricity. We did not use the bathhouse in the campground so don't know it's condition. There are not many campers here at this time of year so it was private and quiet. There is a large field, a playground, and a pool. It is 15 minutes to Manchester and restaurants, Walmart. We would stay here again. We camped at Whispering Oaks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lovely family run campground set amoungst tall shady oak trees with plenty of room between sites. Very pleasant and helpful camping hosts (Harvey and Joanne) made our 2 night stay very enjoyable. Common washroom building is older but is clean and the showers are hot and spacious. Good value for a quiet stay and we'd certainly do it again.

We camped here overnight after finding the nearby state park campground full. Whispering Oaks looked okay from the road, it had a swimming pool and lots of shade. However, as we were escorted to our site, we found many "run-down" campers. Behind our site, there were two stationary campers that looked like they have not been road worthy in years. The bathhouse was a very small unpainted cinder block shack that looked so bad from the outside I chose not to even look inside. Late in the evening, my husband took our dogs for their nightly walk, and he passed by a large group of tent campers all sitting by the fire smoking pot.Needless to say, we checked out very early the next morning. The campground was quiet and the grounds appeared clean. We were there on a holiday weekend, so maybe we just had a bad experience, but I would not stay there again. In addition, there is really nothing to do at the campground unless you go to the small pool and there are no restaurants or stores at the campground exit. We camped at Whispering Oaks Campground in a Travel Trailer.
