This haven is a true gem of a campground perfectly situated between Maryville and Gatlinburg. The facilities are in excellent condition and well maintained with plenty of space between sites. The staff is very knowledgable, friendly, and eager to make your visit a personable experience. I'm an avid fisherman and the river is not only beautiful but full of wildlife,...

We've camped here on and off for the last six years. Currently we have been here for six weeks and love it! The views of the mountains are unparalleled and everyone is friendly and easy to get along with, which includes all the staff. Yes, there is a rooster here. I've named him Rocky. He walks around the campground and...

The area is beautiful and rural with great views of the mountains. You pull in and think that you are going to have a nice and relaxing vacation with spectacular views. You stay up late your first night with a fire going. Awesome right? NOT! At 2:30AM a rooster started crowing. Then again at about 4:30 then it went on...

We certainly want our guests to enjoy all that the resort has to offer. We are lucky enough to have 40 Acres surrounded by mountains and wildlife. On any given day you might see flocks of Geese, Rabbits, Deer, Birds, and much more. We have farms near the campground so you might even hear a Cow. The Rooster does not...

Great campground. Clean bathrooms and showers. Full hookups with free cable. Mature crowd. Pool was great and they are working to update jacuzzi. The cottages looked very nice although we did not stay in them. River frontage and great place to walk and explore

Had a wonderful time labor day weekend. Beautiful scenery. Updates to grading and landscaping that are mentioned by management not noticeable. It is also apparent that they do not maintain electrical system. When I left I noticed plug had been melted (but a loose connection ). Management and maintenance refuse to admit and problems with their electric system. However my...

Whispering R, Owner at Whispering River Resort, responded to this review

Mr. McPherson, we are sorry you experienced electrical problems at the campground. Our number one priority is customer service from the moment you book your stay throughout your entire trip. We cannot achieve this goal without proper maintenance of the entire campground. I have stressed this throughout my 25 years in the recreation business. We have had thousands of RV's...

It is located in the foot of the Smokies and so close to everything. The accomodations were excellent and staff was very helpful with our stay and even recommended places to eat, visit, must see. They went above and beyond and we will be back! And referring to our fellow campers/RV users that travel the BBQ circuit!

We chose the Whispering River Resort to hold our end of basketball season banquet. The location was easy to find and the parking was great for our large group.

We stayed here for 5 days in our RV. What a beautiful and relaxing place to stay.

We spent a few days in Walland TN when we were traveling to the Gatlinburg area. The resort was clean (the cleanest bathrooms/showers we have EVER used), people were friendly, and there was a lot of room between RV sites. An excellent place to park the RV and cruise over to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Maryville, or ride the Tail of...

My husband and I stayed for one week, for my husband's job. The park is nothing fancy, but it was clean and the spots were mostly pull thru. There is a very large grass area that leads down to the Little River and is very pet friendly. The sites are all gravel, but ours was level and had no problem...
