We stayed 3 nights while in the area. Park seems new. The road on your approach to the park as extremely narrow and passing another vehicle was an white knuckle experience. This narrow road is short but really needs to be widened for safety. Check in was super efficient and the staff was great during our entire stay. Our site was a pull thru right across from the pool with plenty of length to park the toad. We were directed to our site and the person stayed until they were sure everything worked. Pool was very nice and was well used because of the heat but not too loud even though we were only feet away. Entire park was gravel and the area was suffering from a lack of rain during our visit so was very, very dusty with vehicles driving by. Our site was fairly level but some others had RV's on various blocks, some too high for my comfort, to get level. Large park and we enjoyed walking the roads inside. Rest rooms and laundry was clean and laundry reasonably priced. Park was very convenient to all of the area attractions 30 minutes to the Ark Encounter, Wild Turkey and Woodford Reserve Distillery's. Many other attractions near Lexington were also convenient. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again if we were in the area.
Beautiful park, very well maintained - roads were gravel but no potholes. From I-75, you take US25 north, then turn right onto SR670 - this road is very narrow - no lines - hope you don't meet another RV coming the other way - it's not a long way, though. Wifi was mostly non-existent. We were in a back-in site near the pond. Parking for the tow vehicle is parallel to the road rather than as part of the site. So, when all the sites were occupied, it was hard to get down the road. They did tell us that they were going to make all these sites at an angle over this coming winter when they are closed. This will be a huge improvement. Hopefully, they'll make them longer too, so your vehicle will fit within the site inline with your RV.
Whispering Hills is an excellent stopover campground. It is near I-75. It is clean with excellent customer service. The campground is quiet. The sites are level. The only drawback is the sites are gravel. However they are spaced far enough apart to allow for private time. Highly recommend this campground.
The staff here was very friendly and helpful. We stayed 4 nights in a travel trailer. The site we stayed in was not so level but nothing we couldn't fix with a few leveling blocks. The park was clean and well maintained. WIFI of course did not work as with most RV parks. Did not use the pool or bath house.
Stayed 4 nights. Friendly and helpful staff. Lake lot was beautiful. They have the most amazing bath I have ever seen they provide ( Shower, toilet, and sink ) all in a individual room. Facilities where super clean. Would stay here again if I ever get the chance.
We stopped here for just one night on the way to TN & it worked out great. The place was quiet & had all the amenities we needed. We didn't use the restrooms so I can't say how they were but the staff was friendly & very helpful when we requested a late check out for a reasonable fee. If we're in the area again, we'd stop here for a longer stay.
We had made a reservation knowing that we would be arriving close to the office closing time. After several travel
problems that day we call back and told them we would be late. They showed great concern for our safety and told
us not to worry just call when we turned off the interstate and they would have someone meet us at the office.
We where told when making the reservations that the only sites available were back ins and told them that was ok.
The gentleman that met us even took time to find sites that we could drive thur
this was a 10:30. Now that is hospitality.. Thank you again for the great service.
Friendly staff & a great setting... small lake, lots of grass, gravel camp sites, play area for kids, quite, away from the highway noise. Narrow country road (with some potholes) to get there . Almost half of the back-in RV sites were on a slight incline, so we spent some time leveling. Located just 30 minutes from the Ark Experience.
Biggest down side was the WIFI... slowest I've experienced on our 30 day trip around the country. I could occasionally download some e-mail, but could not click on a link because it would stop cold. We also had a problem with neighbors on both sides building camp fires in the evening. I'm sure they enjoyed it, but the wind off the lake was blowing smoke into our RV. We talked about moving to a Wal-Mart.
Staff were Fabulous. Did not know KY got so cold(10) They have propane to refill tanks. They took you to your sights, lots of room. Bathrooms were nicest I have used (we were still winterize) your own toilet, shower, sink in separate Big rooms. They had Big showers, hooks where you need them, shelfs at sink to put your stuff on, good hot water heated rooms. There is a Pilot Gas Station right at the exit. I will used them again for sure. Thor 2016.
We stayed the Whispering Hills RV Park for one night on our way back home to Michigan from SC. Very friendly staff and they escort you to your site, which is great. We had a pull thru gravel site (33) somewhat level but not an issue. I like the fact they have propane on site and heated water hook up. The temps were a low of 5*f and a high of 12*f. when we stayed. The full hookups are well placed. 50, 30, and 20 amp electrical service. We would stay there again when passing thru and when visiting the Ark Encounter. Once again the staff was very helpful and welcoming. We enjoyed our short stay!
Very nice people at this relatively new campground. Setting is ok, but nothing spectacular. There is a pool but too late in season for us. Full hookup was about $37. It is gravelly, but didn't bother us; we were there just one night. Restrooms were very clean and new; several individual showers and toilets with locking doors.
We had a beautiful lake front premium camp site with full hookups. The staff welcomed us and helped us to park our RV. Hookups worked well and were convenient. Kids loved the pool. Clean shower house and spacious private shower rooms. Short drive to the Interstate, and great place to stay visiting Noah's Ark Encounter.
Stayed here overnight. Friendly people and escort service to site. Gravel sites and roads. Quiet, nice lake, activities for kids. Pool looked good. Wifi was nonexistent. Convenient to area attractions and interstate. Would go back and stay longer.
Our 4th visit to this campground in the past 3 years. Friendly staff, quiet location, Pilot station at I-75 exit adds convenience. Must say though that the advertised Wi-Fi is unfortunate as they have 1 transponder and I can't even get on it when sitting on their front porch. Have done a lot of landscaping that's nice but I'd prefer Wi-Fi service for my money rather than investing in their entry landscaping.
We made an overnight stop on our way up north, This place was more than we expected. We had a premium site. Only downsides...... No tv reception without satellite and no fire ring. But if you have kids they will love it. Inflateble slide, playground, swimming, etc. Very clean. Welcoming hosts. Would definitely recommend.
Park is rather plain but it is clean. Little disappointed with the site we had due to it being almost 6" out of level from side to side. All the sites were gravel and most appeared to be more level than ours. We almost didn't have enough stuff to get it level. The staff was friendly and helpful. Not sure we would stay again.
There are no shade trees. Because of the position of our campsite, our awning provided no shade. We had to move the picnic table to the front of our RV to get shade. This would have been fine, except for the gravel road. Each time a vehicle passed our campsite, we were immersed in dust. Their WiFi is unacceptably slow and is not password protected. Our PC picked up malware on their website. I would not stay her again.
This as a great place to overnight- got a pull-through, did make an advance reservation. The place looks fairly new, gravel roads with good level sites, full hookups, beautiful location. There is no shade as yet, but this time of year that doesn't matter. One of the nicest bath houses I've used, individual rooms. Can't say enough good things about this campground.
Had a great stay here. Great park, nicely laid out, friendly folks. Will definitely stay there again if we are in the area.
You will need to ensure you have a working water pressure regulator because their house water pressure is on the order of 70 psi.
We stayed for one night as we were in transit to Michigan. Called late in the afternoon to get a reservation for the night. The woman on the phone was very helpful and polite, giving clear instructions on how to get there and what to do if we arrived after the office closed. The pool was very clean (closes at 8, later would have been nice since it was still daylight until after 9) and is maintained daily. The bathrooms. Wow, the bathrooms. Going into the bathhouse you are in a hallway with 10 doors to private family style bathrooms. Each bathroom has toilet, sink and shower. Each was very clean. The ONLY suggestion we could make would be to have a double shower in a couple. This would make it easier when with a youngster old enough to want to 'shower by himself' so could shower at same time as the supervising adult with in same room. Great water pressure (you will need a regulator). The site we were on was all gravel, no grass at all although other sites did have grass. I suspect our site is in an area for "overnighters" to pull in for a night. Close to the front and pull through site, and the gravel keeps the cleanup to a minimum. Will definitely stay there again when in transit through the area.
Very Happy with this RV Park.
We stopped without reservations.
We were greeted with a smile and escorted to our site.
Only stayed 1 night but very happy with the pull thru site so that I did not have to disconnect my tow.
Very quiet night.
Did not use any park amenities but very please with the experience.
Staff was super nice, campground was clean and quiet, beautiful setting. Staff escorted us to our site, answered our questions, made us feel right at home. Level pull-through, easy hook-ups, pet-friendly. Only an overnight stay, can't comment on the amenities, so that's why I'm only giving 4 stars. Would definitely stay here again.
If your handicap watch out here. It's not very safe for children either!! Very dangerous place, large boulders of blacktop strewed throughout. They were also very rude accommodating me due to my injuries! Very dissatisfied with this place and its owners!!
Easy to reach from I-75 but it is down a two lane road to Rogers Gap Rd. which is narrow under an overpass. Don't be put off by this. It is a welcome sight at the top of a slight hill. The staff is always welcoming and helpful. We appreciate their help in getting you to your site and, on occasion, helping with set up. We arrived during a rainy day and the gentleman brought pads to put under our jacks before we even got out of the MH. Beautiful scenery and a horse farm is up the road. Close to Lexington is a plus. Rates are excellent. I'd be happy there on a long term basis. If you are traveling in Oct. call ahead because they are a popular "snowbird" stopping off point. They are currently adding sites and constantly upgrading.
We stayed there from April thru August. Wi-fi is very limited if operational at all. We nick named this place the "gravel pit" because that is what it is. It is noisey during the day as they are always working the grating the gravel. The long term areas are crowded... our car was hit. We were charged as much for electricity for 10 days that we were there in August as much as we were charged for the entire month of July. We would not recommend staying here.
If I could give them 10 stars for shower facility I would. I saw someone in there at least twice a day making sure they were clean. They have individual rooms that have a toilet, a sink and a shower in each one. Awesome!!! Fairly new campground, but appears to have several seasonals. Nice pool, but did not use it this trip.Building new section for larger rigs pull-thru. They were seen daily working to keep things in order and tidy. Beautiful pond (we got to see it with a double rainbow over it) Nice open shelter house with a stage, but they had a large bounce pad there while we were there and no shows. Several pull thru spots on the outside row, which is all gravel and there were overnighters using the ones near us. We had a grass yard with fire ring and plastic picnic table along with our very level gravel parking space with enough room to park our Jeep Liberty at the front of our Motorhome. Office gals very helpful in suggesting things to do on our free day. Very nice selection of area literature in the office.
