“Wonderful, relaxing, friendly, and peaceful!”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

My family and I absolutely loved the 5 days/4 nights we stayed at Whippoorwill Lake. The folks who run the place are friendly and helpful. The facilities are kept clean and appealing. If you are looking for frills, luxury, or to be catered to, you should stay in a high dollar hotel or a fancy resort where a vastly inferior product is overpriced. This place only offers the best things available: beautiful scenery, a peaceful lake, a sky full of stars, hiking trails, open pit campfires, wonderful memories with the wife and kids, and the bare necessities.

To address the review by "Xenophobic Bill," unfortunately we now live in a society where dishonesty is the common way of life and a majority of the "5 minute" visitors stay for hours and use the privately owned lake and facilities without paying. No business has ever been successful by giving away their product. I'm positive that if "Xenophobic Bill" would train his dog to dig a hole only when it has a bowel movement, and then fill the hole back up, they would not charge him for the dog. Until then, someone has to fill the holes and pick up the poop.

As far as the owner being "foreign;" I never bothered to find out if he is a US citizen, which would make him, not foreign, but an American. I am glad he pointed it out though because everyone knows that there are no money hungry Americans.

There was no sewage problems while we were there so I can't address this issue.

This place is gorgeous! We have a large group go each year in October. Some of us stay in cabins, some in RVs, some in tents... All of us are taken care of and the accomodations are super clean. Each year, the owner takes us on a tractor hay ride through the woods. All of the kids dress up in their Halloween costumes and come back to decorate their campsites, trick or treat and play games. If you're looking for a family friendly, beautiful, clean place, this is it!

This was by far the worst campground we have ever been to in semo. We went there as a last resort due to all the flooding this year. The owner is foreign, and will charge you for everything. If you have a dog its $5 per day, if you have any guests its $5 per 24 hours even if is for 5 minutes.He is money hungry and does not maintain the camp ground. There is also definitely a sewage problem. The sewer was running over and he was pumping it out at night.. and guess where it was going??? right at the lake.... It even flooded out a camper... We are reporting this to the health dept/epa.... Once we seen this we cleaned up and left immediately..
