This is a small park with few sites suitable for big rigs, and although the interior road is a bit tight, with care you can maneuver into one of the two or three long grass and gravel pull-thrus. Lots of trees, but a fairly clear shot for the satellite, with fair Verizon cell and data reception. The free cable TV was extensive and clear. Fairly quiet, with a few long term RVs and friendly owners/hosts and a large store. Considering that there are no sewer hookups or WiFi, the nightly rate is at the top end of what we would expect for a park with few amenities. Anyone with a rig over 32' should probably call ahead for reservations since the larger sites are few. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Park & Center in a Motorhome.

Nice location well off the highway, with great access to Cle Elum. Very friendly, honest folks. Facilities were clean, but not sparkling clean. Sites were very narrow, had to dodge trees to walk around the trailer, but the good news is that there is shade. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Park & Center in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great park for an overnight stop. There are only a few pull throughs that will accommodate larger rigs. There is lots of shade and its very nice camping among the trees. We enjoyed the river walk and did a loop around. You can also walk into town from the campground. Friendly, helpful staff at this park. Will stay again on our travels.

This is an OK campground for a night. There is no sewer or wi-fi, and there are nicer parks in the area. Having said that, it's OK for a night, and they have an RV store should you need something. We stayed here for one night. Also, there is a train that goes by often. Our rate reflects Good Sam discount. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Park & Center in a Motorhome.
I made a reservation at this park for five days. I stayed for eight. For the last two I dry camped since I didn't have reservations for those days, and the park was full. There are limitless spots for dry camping. Just pick an open space and park. I chose a space on the lake shore. This is a smaller park, and trees are plentiful. It just smells good, like a pine forest. Lots of room and privacy at each spot. The owner and the manager are most accommodating. At the back of the park you will find a path along the Yakama River. One is tempted to wade in. It's crystal clear, and moves fast, but I'm sure it's quite cold. There were a few people fly fishing from the bank. The store at this park surpasses any park store I have encountered. It's more like a small dedicated RV store. Cle Elum brings memories of 1940s-1950s mid-America. Here are some points of interest that deserve your time. For excellent Wi-Fi visit Stella's. It's a small restaurant, opened for only three weeks when I was there. If you are health conscious, this is for you. All vegetables are local. All meat is unprocessed. The ice cream alone is worth a visit. There is buffalo chili on tap. It is so tasty. When you leave the park for town, at the first traffic light turn left. Thirty yards prior to the next light, Stella's is on the right, a few yards back off the street. There is bicycle shop next door. Next is the Cle Elum Bakery. Famous in the area. Turn right at the first traffic light after leaving the park. Go 4 tenths of a mile. The bakery is on the left, on a corner. You will be amazed at the selection of goodies. The third POI is across the street, Owens Meats. Think 1940's neighborhood butcher shop. If you are a meat eater, well, it's the realization of a dream. Lastly there is Beaus. I had dinner there the night before I left. Nice variety on the menu. If you like beer, try the Roslyn local brew. From the light, turn right. It's about three blocks on the SW corner. Enjoy. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Park & Center in a Motorhome.
Good starting point for us. Very friendly people. They have an RV store with just about every item you'd need to replace. Propane available. You have a concrete patio at your site, but you set up on gravel. Good shade and privacy. Great walking path along a beautiful river. The only negative for us was the traffic sounds from I-90. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Park & Center in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Nice sunny spot but yet trees give privacy. Some sites right on river with trail to walk. Close to town. Clean restrooms. We will stay again. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Park & Center in a Motorhome.

Most sites do not have sewer hookups. There is a dump. Most sites have a concrete pad for the picnic table, ours did not. Lots of shade and along the Yakima River. Good cable TV. Some freeway noise, but not bad. Very clean showers/restrooms. Overall a nice place to stay and we would definitely stay here again. Sewer hookups and a little brushing and more slabs would give it a much better rating. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Park & Center in a Motorhome.
Lovely park set among trees and bushes. I would have rated an 8 or 9, but they changed my reserved site without my knowledge. I arrived and the office was closed, so my paperwork was outside. On it, our old reserved site number was crossed out and I discovered we had been reassigned to what is probably the smallest, worst site on the grounds. It took us several drives through the loop to even find it, as it was wedged behind another site. I had to ask the somewhat uncooperative camper parked in that site to move his truck to allow us to back in through his site to get into our small site. It's a great campground if they honor your reservation. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Park & Center in a Travel Trailer.

This is a "woodsy" park. Has very nice trails through the woods along the river. One also can walk to town. The pull-through sites do not have sewer connections (easily accessible dump station) so ask about it if you need one. The staff was friendly and helpful. The sites were nice. Had to downrate it as we had an encounter with 2 aggressive dogs running free in the campground. We told the manager and she said she has had trouble with this person (long term camper ??) before and would talk to them again. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Park & Center in a Motorhome.

If you need RV Repairs, this park is next door to an RV service & repair place! Can't beat that! However, I didn't use the RV service, so I can't comment on that. This park is in a great woodsy area. The slots are adequately spaced apart, not enough for privacy but enough to be "somewhat spaced apart." You check in at the RV store. The laundry rooms and restrooms have a security code. Laundry and rest rooms were clean, but had a funny smell to them. Showers had a charge,75 cents, so I didn't use them. Laundry was cheap! $1 to wash, $1 to dry! At those prices, wash anything you can find, even if it's just two pairs of underpants! Washer and dryer were average sized. Cable was decent. If they have Wi-Fi, I didn't use it, so I can't comment. Verizon Air Card kept dropping signal, but this is an issue with 4G versus 3G. Nearby Cle Elum has a few good restaurants, and a good grocery store. If you don't tow a car, you can walk to downtown. And, if you need to "lighten your load," there is a thrift store in Cle Elum where you can donate used goods. The rate I am showing is the Good Sam rate before taxes. Enjoyed a peaceful stay here.

Very pretty location right on the Cle Elum River with a few sites (we had one) that front the river. Trails run along the river in both directions. Sites are gravel among pine and cottonwood trees (the latter seem to do most of the whispering). Showers were hot, restrooms were clean. They have a nice rec center for group functions. Hosts very friendly and accommodating. Town of Cle Elum within easy walking or cycling distance. "The Mines Trail" from Cle Elum to Roslyn and Ronald leaves from downtown. Ridable on normal (no-suspension) bikes or walkable (4 miles to Ronald). RV store immediately adjacent. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Park & Center in a Motorhome.

This is a RV park in a rustic setting, but just a five minute walk over the overpass to town. Sites are next to the Yakima river with lovely walking trails. It is very well maintained. Only negative is constant roar of traffic from I-90. The office is a well equipped RV parts center. We would stay here again. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Park & Center in a Travel Trailer.

I called the manager early in the day on Monday August 22 to spend the night in my Truck Camper on the way to Ellensburg the next day. She made reservations for me on the phone, and I arrived early evening after 6pm.. She was very friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. Couldn't ask for anything better. On top of that, the restrooms and showers were very clean. There is a 75 cents charge to use the showers, so bring your quarters. Very pretty park near the Yakima River. Quick drive into the town of Cle Elum. Would gladly stay there again if the opportunity comes. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Park & Center in a Truck Camper.

Perfectly fine campground. 75 cents for showers, but most people don't read the instructions and leave, so you get a free shower. Nice staff, wide spaces. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Park & Center in a Motorhome.
