Food & Drink at Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat

You will have a number of food and drink options available during your stay at Whispering Springs. Whether you want to showcase your culinary camp cook abilities or have us take care of the hard work for you is totally up to you! However, please note that if you would like to receive a Breakfast or Dinner Basket during your stay we will need to know prior to your arrival.


Breakfast Baskets

Our lovingly prepared Breakfast Baskets feature homemade granola, Greek yogurt, fresh juice, seasonal fruit and a delicious baked good and will be placed at your tent door between 8:30 AM – 9 AM.  Choose between a Traditional Breakfast for $29.99 at check-out or email us to request a Mimosa Breakfast for $39.99. One Breakfast Baskets feeds two people.

Cook Your Own BBQ Dinner Basket

Let us do the shopping and prepping for you! Order a cook-your-own BBQ basket for 2, featuring beef tenderloin, local & seasonal vegetables, a fresh salad, baguette, dessert and local Prince Edward County wine. Delivered right to your tent door, all you have to do is fire up the grill and enjoy dinner in the great outdoors. The cost is $149.99 for 2 people. 


The Watering Hole Guest Lounge & Bar

Recline in a Muskoka chair and enjoy a lazy afternoon on the patio at The Watering Hole Guest Lounge & Bar. We serve Northumberland County’s finest craft beer and local hard cider, wine from Prince Edward County’s premiere wineries, as well as a selection of wood-fired pizzas. Also, check-out our cocktail menu and treat yourself to a Classic Caesar, Spicy Margarita, S'mortini or Cedar-Smoked Old Fashioned.

Bring & Cook Your Own Food

One aspect of the Canadian camping tradition we wanted to preserve was the outdoor dining experience. Each Safari Tent is outfitted with an outdoor dining area & barbecue, allowing you to enjoy your own meals in the great outdoors (Bell Tents have a shared cooking area). 

Note: If you are bringing and cooking your own food we recommend that you bring tinfoil for cooking on the BBQ as well as prep items & extra utensils.


Local Restaurants & Cafes

Northumberland County is brimming with amazing restaurants and cafes for you to explore and discover. We are also just a 40 minute drive from Prince Edward County, which boasts an excellent and burgeoning culinary scene. Visit our In The Area page to learn more about some of our favourite restaurants and visit Guest Reception during your stay to ask for our personal recommendations.

You will have the option to add a Breakfast Basket or Cook Your Own BBQ Dinner Basket to your reservation during check-out. If you have an existing reservation and would like to add a Breakfast Basket or Cook Your Own BBQ Dinner Basket  to your booking please email us at
