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.
