WPRVRESORT Whispering Pines RV Resort & Campground

About

So what can we expect at WPRVRESORT?

We are a small quiet campground. We are old fashioned when it comes to camping. We still believe that people want to camp in a safe, clean, and quiet environment. Our campground consists of Christmas Trees that border all of our sites to provide privacy and shade. Our sites are grassy and our roads are gravel. We are located on top of Mancelona Mountain so we get a breeze nearly every day. The sites are spacious and we offer Water/Electric/Sewer, Water/Electric, and Tent camping. The RV sites have both 30 and 50 Amp availability, and the Tent sites have no less than 5 AMP available.

Who are the Owners?

The campground is owned by Russ and Sydney. Both come from a technical sales background with Russ now operating the park while Sydney continues her career. We are in our 6th season now with WPRVRESORT. The campground itself was built between 2003-2004. We work very hard to keep our standards to provide a very safe, clean, and quiet environment for those who are still interested in camping.

What do we have to offer?

Heated Pool - Memorial Weekend to Labor Day

Weekend

We keep our pool warm even when the days may be cooler. We keep the pool clean and warm at 80 degrees. It is open between 10am to 8pm.

Basketball

We have the equivalent of a half court basketball area where you can brush up on your skills. You can test yourself with the “Around The World” steps. See if you can go all the way back and forth without missing 2X. (you may be there awhile) :-)

Pickleball

We have 2 Pickleball Courts where you can get your game on. Don’t know how to play, no problem, just ask and we will be happy to show you in just 5 minutes. Think you are too old, to young, not in shape enough? Wrong! Great game that anyone of any age or skill level can play and have a great time.

Cornhole

We currently have two sets of Cornhole that are free to use by our big Red Barn. Great fun for everyone.

Nature Trail

Like to get out and be with Nature? We have the perfect trail for you. It is approximately 1.7 miles long and weaves through our property adjacent to the campground. Get out there at sunrise and you might see a Deer or Turkey. Later in the season, watch all the natural fern start to turn the bright reds and oranges. Maybe pick a raspberry or blackberry along the way.

Star Gazing

Take in a clear summer night and be completely blown away by the Milky Way. (not the candy bar) We have very little light around the park at night for this very reason. The amount of stars and the brilliance of them will literally put things into perspective. We are so grateful every time we get to see this wonderful show. Want to view the meteor showers? Book now and be amazed.

Bring your imagination

Do you remember the games you used to play as a child? They were not connected to a phone or TV. It was outside using the very basic of items. Do any of these ring a bell? Kick the Can? Hide and Seek? Kickball? Red Light/Green Light Marbles Kite Flying Hop Scotch Capture the Flag I am sure you are thinking of even more. Why not come out and play? We have many other outdoor games that are free to use.

So where do you want to visit?

Head North to Petoskey, its just 39 miles away. Or, head South to Traverse City for the Cherry Festival, its only 38 miles away. Better yet, head West to Torch Lake which is only 21 miles away. East is your destination, no problem, Gaylord is only 21 miles. As you can probably notice, we are right in the middle of all the major areas of North West Michigan. Take off in the morning and do day trips to all the surrounding beautiful towns and then come back to the quiet retreat of WPRVRESORT.

Golfing your Passion?

With over a dozen golf courses within a 15 mile radius, I think we have you covered. Go get your 18 holes done in the morning and then come back and relax by the pool in the afternoon thinking about your next round tomorrow. Play a different course everyday.

Wanna catch some fish?

We mentioned a dozen golf courses above, there are just as many lakes in the area to get your line in the water. Trout, Perch, Walleye, Whitefish, Bass, you name it, it is around us. Wanna bring your boat? Go ahead, you can park it in front of our registration building for FREE. Get up, grab your boat, and head to the lake to take in the beautiful waters. Watch some eagles and catch a fish or two. Come back, have a fire, and tell fish stories of the day.

Got a taste for some fermented grapes?

Did you know that Michigan is known world wide for their Riesling wines? Did  you know that Michigan is one of the top concord grape growers in the US? Would you like to taste all the different types of wines of Michigan? Stay with WPRVRESORT and go and do tastings at one of the many wineries in the area. Be daring and try some Ice Wine, it will cure any sweet tooth.

Festivals

Car Shows, Air Shows, Festivals, Art, Film, Farmers Markets, and many many more events and activities go on endlessly during our camping season all around us. Come for a day, a week, or a month and you cannot see it all. There is so much to do in NW Michigan during the camping season that you could completely wear yourself out. It’s okay, you can always take a day off and just take in nature because, as we mentioned, we are right in the middle of all things in NW Michigan. Go Play or Stay and Relax, you can do it all right from WPRVRESORT.

Campground Policies - (Rules)

Here they are, the dreaded campground rules.

We have the same policies (rules) as pretty much every campground in existence. The main difference is - WE ENFORCE THEM. We do not shy away from telling you this as we want you to know upfront. If you are a person who thinks campgrounds should not have rules or that they do not apply to you; then we are not the campground for you, and we recommend another park. No hard feelings, we wish you the very best no matter where you stay. If you are the type that likes rules, and understands why they are in place, then we are for you! Take your time just before bed and read through our policies, It will surely put you into a deep coma. When you are all done, and feel like we are the park for you, then click on over to the reservations page and plan your trip. WPRVRESORT does not allow NON REGISTERED persons to use our pool, bathrooms, showers, or any of our facilities. These are for our Registered Guests and their Visitors only.

Extra Everything Policies - Trailers/Boats/Etc…

Here is our disclaimer: We try to keep these policies to a minimum, but we are

constantly told “I did not see this/that in the rules” so we continue to add items to

the above policies. With that said, there are obvious policies/rules not mention on this

website but are still enforced. We would like to believe that everyone already knows

these in advance by being part of a public society.

Best way to look at it is, it is the same as what all of our parents told us growing up.

“If I have to ask if I am allowed or if it feels wrong, then just don’t do it”.

or “If I would not or should not do it in front of Grandma, then just don’t do it”

Reviews

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

This is the place where we are supposed to put all the great things that our visitors have said about us. Well, I always felt these were one sided and so we are not going to do that. Instead, we are providing you with the sites that provide reviews in their entirely. You will see the good reviews and the ones that are not so favorable. With that said, keep in mind that we are a clean, safe, and quiet campground. We have accomplished this by maintaining our rules. You can be the judge if we are the park for you.
