Life’s a holiday at Whispering River resort where dogs can come with their family for the summer break. In a camp this size, it’s important that pooches be good doggy citizens and stay on-leash. Owners are expected to pick up after their pets and not allow them in the camp buildings or cabins. A leisurely walk along Little River is a great escape for woofers and their guardians.
It’s well recorded this RV resort has friendly, helpful staff with a well-maintained landscape plus clean restrooms and showers. There is also a coin-operated laundry for campers' convenience along with a store swimming pool and super-cool kid’s playground. The camp also boasts an event center, club room, and some of the best walking trails for beginners. The Porters Creek Trail is great for die-hard hikers who love a real challenge.
Whispering River RV Resort sits on the west side of the Smokey Mountains - some call it the quieter side as it’s a more rural overview where folks come to unwind from the rigors of everyday life and get back to nature.
Eight miles from the camp is Townsend, a cruisy little town where you can take the kids to The Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center or go "Cowboy Tubing" on Little River.
