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. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

The park was full so I guess that is why the restrooms were a mess. The park has a pool with a lot of screaming children running around everyone's site but is no fault of the park. The main complaint I had was a rude staff member in th office this woman was so unfriendly I would never return. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park for an overnight stay on our way to Tennessee from Wisconsin. Made the reservation on their website and received confirmation within 12 hours. Park was pretty empty the night we were there. Sites and roads are rock, noisy when vehicles drove by but clean and well cared for sites. There is a section of permanent sites that is totally separate from the nightly/weekly sites. Lots of space in our site, we didn't have to unhook our towed vehicle. Very nice salt water pool and playground area. We would stay again. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

This place is a gem. We stayed there in a 40' toy hauler. Had a great site and really enjoyed our stay. Large site over looking a field. There was free ranging chickens however they never bothered us. Easy to navigate through the park and plenty of room for the truck once unhooked.

We have stayed at this park on a number of occasions and will continue to use it while traveling through the area. Our price included cable TV connection which I believe is an additional $3. The salt water pool was refreshing after a long drive. Our pull through site (3) was long and level but narrow. All the utilities worked well. The park is always clean and well managed. I would give it a higher rating if the price was lower. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We always go to Benton for fuel and dinner. There is a nice golf course nearby if you have time to play a round. Also, the Garden of the Gods located within the Shawnee National Forest is worth visiting.

Stayed here for 3 nights in June 2018. Big park with a wooded feel and plenty of room to roam around. The owner is a really nice guy and very courteous. Hookups were maintained and adequate. My only issue was that I was put in a site close to the entrance and right on the end. Normally these are desired sites but mine was small and had a lot of traffic going to and from their own rigs. This became especially annoying at 6 a.m. when people were leaving for work. I would stay here again in an instant - I'd just have a little more to say about where I was placed as the park wasn't that full. Also, couldn't get satellite reception due to the many trees but that was fine with me. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.
