Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat

Safari tents to treetop hideaways: Glamping at Whispering Springs

Glamping embodies many different types and styles of accommodations, ranging from luxury RVs to treetop hideaways. What each type of accommodation has in common is that they are a more luxurious and comfortable way to spend time in the wilderness and reconnect with nature. According to the founder of Glamping Hub, David Troya, there are three characteristics required of any glamping accommodation: the accommodation should have a unique structure, should provide the comfort and luxuries of a hotel accommodation, and provide direct access to the outdoor world (no elevators or lobbies!). Here are a few of the glamping options that we plan on incorporating into Whispering Springs Luxury Camping Resort:

Safari tents

When individuals hear the word ‘glamping’ safari tents tend to be the first image that comes to mind. In fact, glamping originated on African safaris, when wealthy travelers wanted to experience the beauty and wildlife of Africa, without the discomforts of camping. This led to the erection of fully furnished luxury tents, often with ensuite washrooms, butlers, and private verandahs. Safari tents will be the main form of accommodation offered at Whispering Springs Luxury Camping Resort. Each luxury tent will feature elegant furnishings, an ensuite bathroom, and private porches.


It’s hard to get much closer to nature than sleeping amongst the treetops. Whispering Springs will be incorporating treehouse accommodations throughout the campground to give guests a truly unique and personal experience with nature. Listen to the rustle of leaves in your treetop perch as you take in the forest surroundings. Treehouses will be able to accommodate up to two individuals and will be uniquely situated throughout the campground.


For individuals who prefer more traditional glamping accommodations, or those visiting with a large group, Whispering Springs will also feature cozy and quaint cabin accommodations. The cabins will be designed to accommodate more than two individuals and will offer washrooms and running water. Screened in porches will allow guests to enjoy the scenery and outdoors in luxury and comfort. Each cabin will be uniquely decorated to reflect the beauty of the Canadian wilderness.

Whispering Springs is poised to open its doors Spring 2017. We look forward to seeing you!
