If not for poor water drainage issues, I would give this RV park an 8 because staff & owner super nice & friendly plus common areas very tidy. Laundry facilities extremely clean but a little stuffy. It rained 4 of the 5 days we were there. Efforts are made with gravel but compact product needed. We nicknamed this park "My Cousin Vinny's" when we heard the train whistle, only thing missing was the screeching owl :) Good halfway point for Austin - Houston.

Nice fenced in dog run. Pet owners picked up after dogs - 10 stars! Nice small town getaway. We camped at Whispering Oaks RV Park (Formerly Columbus KOA) in a Motorhome.

Our one night stay was perfect. Located right off I-10 made it easy access. The sites are level with ample room. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and bookmarked this park for our future trips through the area. Highly recommend! We camped at Whispering Oaks RV Park (Formerly Columbus KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground has a good feel about it. The sites at this campground are roomy and level. They are dirt and gravel. There's a table and a fire ring at each site. The people are very nice. There isn't much to do in the area, but it would be a good place to just kick back and relax. We camped at Whispering Oaks RV Park (Formerly Columbus KOA) in a Motorhome.

Return visit after winter in Arizona - older park provides good overnight visit. Same comments as previously made in September the grounds need lots of help. Very wet week and grass areas very sloppy but nothing to do about that. Cats all over the place as last time. Workampers very friendly. Guess they need to buy a new lawn mower and weed whackers.

Friendly service and guests. Large pull thru sites with grass and picnic tables, and fire pits. Enjoyed our stayed here, in a 36 foot rig, from Nov. 2015 to Apr 2016. Daily sightings of blue jays, cardinals, morning doves, and cattle in the distance. Quick access to I-10. About 6 miles east or west, one can get to towns with grocery stores, doctors, fuel, library, etc. We like it here best for the country feel, friendliness, temperatures in the 60's to 70's, a few 80's. Monthly rate $350 or $375 plus electric. Nightly rate with discount $32.85. The rv parks' slogan, "Come as strangers, Leave as Friends" is so true! We camped at Whispering Oaks RV Park (Formerly Columbus KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Older park that needs ground maintenance upgrade. Nothing that affects stay but not very eye appealing - weeds growing on gravel sites - grass need weed whacking and trimming. Owners stated they are going to be putting it up for sale but still very helpful and friendly. No more pizza after today - we had one and it was really good - money loser they said. Must be 25 cats running loose and living in the brush - no mice. Good overnight stay. We camped at Whispering Oaks RV Park (Formerly Columbus KOA) in a Motorhome.

We pulled in at closing with our 2 grandsons and we were tired and hungry. The owners were kind enough to bake us 2 pizzas and deliver them to our campsite. Very clean, safe campground, nice level sites and we enjoyed our stay. Kids played at the playground and we enjoyed the adult swing! Well lit but not too much that might shine in our windows. Super easy off and on from I-10. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Whispering Oaks RV Park (Formerly Columbus KOA) in a Motorhome.

Stayed in pull thru level, large. Hard pack gravel no problems considering the heavy rains had just went thru. Wonderful staff, friendly and welcoming. Will put on our return list. We camped at Whispering Oaks RV Park (Formerly Columbus KOA) in a Motorhome.

Floods a lot. Gravel sites becoming overgrown with weeds, interior roads worn, but easy in and out pull thrus with plenty of space. Park not crowded. P ark offers pizza for 9.99 and fairly good not wonderful. Staff very friendly. Store has usual RV supplies for emergency. Have stayed here for overnite before. Would not suggest staying here in heavy rain. We camped at Whispering Oaks RV Park (Formerly Columbus KOA) in a Motorhome.

This is a decent park for an overnight. I don't think I'd want to stay for more than a night, though. Keep in mind the trains DO pass by regularly and they DO toot their horns as they travel by. The traffic noise from I-10 was bearable, and we were as close as anyone to the road. That said, the trains were the big distraction. Getting to the park was easy, the interior roads seemed manageable although in the dark of night (when we arrived) it was a little tricky figuring out the traffic pattern. *Hint* look at the park map for traffic pattern tips PRIOR to parking. We were facing the wrong way but all worked out. The sites were fairly level gravel in decent condition and plenty wide and long for our 40' Class A with TOAD attached. The owner/manager was nice on the phone and when we left. There were several full-time residents here but they were no problem. This was okay for two road-weary travelers for a night, but I prefer the park down the road a bit in Flatonia. It was full when we called, however so now we know of a decent alternative when our preferred location is taken. We camped at Whispering Oaks RV Park (Formerly Columbus KOA) in a Motorhome.

This is a good overnight stop. I wouldn't consider it a destination stop but there are many things to see in the area. We stopped at another place in Columbus but it was quite a mud pit. The roads are asphalt and the sites are gravel and level for the most part with plenty of space between the sites for awnings and slides. I-10 and a railroad are close. We were outside when the first train went through and we were a bit concerned but once inside with the windows and doors closed they weren't an issue at all. I-10 noise wasn't an issue for us at all. There is a small store that doesn't price gouge like some parks do. The internet was solid but speeds wouldn't let you watch movies or TV shows. We will definitely be back.

The campground was clean and well maintained. The roads are paved with gravel sites. I gave this campground a 5 rating because of the frequent train traffic. The train tracks are about 150 yards from the campground boundaries and the trains come through about every 2 hours night and day. The free WiFi initially was good but after 24 hours, we were prompted to sign in again and the "free access" button was gone, with no Wi-Fi password provided by the office. So basically the free Wi-Fi is only for the first day of your stay. Easy on, easy off, except the entrance to I-10 W was extremely short with a 90 degree turn. We felt it was too tight for a 40 ft RV so we drove 7 miles to Weimer TX and got on I-10 there. We camped at Whispering Oaks RV Park (Formerly Columbus KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Former KOA campground. Nice spacing of sites with some shade trees. Some spaces can be challenging to enter without running over the grass since they are at near 90 degree angles to the access road. Mostly gravel access roads with gravel sites. Moderate highway and train noise (frequent trains with horns). Power ok, did not use other utilities. Campground staff did not know the wifi password, so no working wifi (next morning talking to the owner he indicated he's increasing the bandwidth). Moderate Verizon cell signal with ok data rates. Most sites would not have problems with satellite access. Good overnight stop. We will stay here again when needing an overnight in area.

Nice and friendly campground. Some long term residents sprinkled throughout the park. Noisy with highway and train. No cable TV and poor local reception. We have stayed here several times, not sure we will stay again. Price is too high for what you get. We camped at Whispering Oaks RV Park (Formerly Columbus KOA) in a Motorhome.

This was a hard one to rate. We only spent one night, sandwiched between Interstate-10 and a very busy, very nearby railroad track. Didn't sleep at all. But our site was a nice, level pull-thru with a shade tree. The lady in the office and her husband were delightful and helpful. We didn't use the shower, but I'd bet it was clean. If the railroad noise isn't a problem, this would be a nice stop. This was the most expensive campground we stayed at on a 6-week trip and it was not worth it. We camped at Whispering Oaks RV Park (Formerly Columbus KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.
