Older park with mature trees requiring careful driving. Very pleasant office personal. Site long enough for 45' motorhome and dinghy. No need to unhook. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a great overnight stay. Owner friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Lots of trees with leaves falling since it is the end of October. Would definitely stay again. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Well run country park, convenient from the interstate. Towering majestic oak trees throughout. We stayed here a few years ago and were very taken with the park, the chickens and the friendly staff. The owners appear to live on site and keep a close eye on the park. It's clean and very well maintained. We fed cracker crumbs and were very popular with the roaming flock of chickens. The staff brought fresh eggs to our door. We made egg salad that night!! A lot of RV parks are easy to forget. We'll always remember Whittington Woods! We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Ok , our bad for coming after dark. Nice clean place, pretty flowers. Site pretty much level. Utilities behind camper as well as another camper and fire pit. Thankfully nice folks. Very bright streetlights shining right in our window but this might be a plus for others. Plenty of room to walk pups. MEH for us. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Easy access for large rigs. Interior roads and sites are gravel. There is a fee for using credit cards to pay. Pleasant check in, with escort to site. We had a cable/pull-thru site, but I don't believe all sites offer cable. This is a nicely landscaped, heavily wooded park, but the trees weren't an issue since there were no low hanging branches. Most sites appeared to be level. We didn't use the pool, but it looked clean. Close to highway, but not much road noise. Verizon worked well in this location. 50 amp electric and water worked as expected. Didn't hook up to sewer since we were there one night only. There are miscellaneous wood carvings throughout the park. There is a fenced pet area with bags, and plenty of space to walk pets. There is a basketball court and children's play area. The showers/restrooms were clean and modern. The sign "stay to right" by the office is a bit of a nuisance for a larger rig, especially since there is a tree nearby. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Great little stopover site right off the interstate. Pet friendly and very spacious. Only 7 minutes from Rend lake which was kind of neat. Interior roads were great and front desk staff was very helpful. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was a perfect place after a long drive from Atlanta. Easy to find. The office was very nice and someone escorted me to my site. The shower pressure in their facility was the best of any park I have ever been to. Us guys like that. Roomy site, well shaded. I am staying here again as I return east in September. A highly recommended place. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Easy checkin, Escorted to site and assisted with backing in. Park has many beautiful large trees, very nicely manicured park, nice fenced dog area, a catch and release pond in the back and lovely chickens that roam freely. They also have a beautiful raised bed garden in the front. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall a nice campground. When we visited in late May it was very wet. Site was level and the campground is mostly forested. Pet friendly. There is nothing within walking distance of the campground, so if you don't want to unhook would advise shopping before setting up. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice stopover for us going south. Well maintained. We did not notice highway noise. Easy to get to from the Interstate with a gas station near the exit which is very convenient. Nice pool, and the nicest restrooms and showers I think we've seen. We had a pull thru with easy in and out. A little pricey for an overnight but will definitely stay here again.

Very nice park with plenty of shade. The interior roads are a little tight and I can imagine it might be a bit tricky in a big rig. The CG is very nice however not very quiet as advertised. There is noise from the road and highway. Also there were trains going by night and day. The worst part was that we woke up on Wednesday to the sound of a lawn mower sucking up leaves and then a leaf blower. The park is huge and there were leaves in the rest of the park yet our area must have been top priority. The lawn mower was literally circling our RV at one point and driving back and forth past it for over an hour and a half. At one point that stopped and then the leaf blower started. It was right beside our RV on both sides. We were the only RV parked in our row. Then the lawn mower began again and continued until we left. I understand there needs to be lawn maintenance, I don't understand why it had to be done only around our RV first and for so long. Not the parks fault but on Monday the big rig parked next to us had an electrical problem and had to start it's motor and let it run every 20 minutes. Someone came out to repair it but they continued to run the motor periodically all day and that night. The park does look very nice and the person running it was nice. The laundry area is very nice and the washers and dryers are very affordable. Could be the cheapest we have paid to do laundry. The wood carvings around the park are incredible and we loved all the trees. We may stay here again for an overnight stop since it is the only one in the area, but only for one night. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

VERY, VERY clean restrooms and showers!! The only thing that made me a bit nervous was taking a shower at 5:00 a.m. .......knowing that anyone from the street/road could walk into the restrooms. There wasn't a "code", key-card or anything to restrain non-campers from entering the facilities. The roads were a bit muddy, so that and the free access restrooms were the only thing that kept me from giving this overnight stop a perfect 10. I actually liked the wandering chickens crowing about! LOL! We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

The park was quiet but clean. The park has lots of trees. The office staff was cordial but not overly friendly. I appreciated the fresh eggs and enjoyed watching the free roaming chickens. I would definitely return. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.
