Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat

Top 5 reasons to go glamping at Whispering Springs

Summer 2017 Whispering Springs Luxury Camping Resort will be opening its doors. While there are many reasons to go glamping, the novel travel trend that is gaining popularity throughout North America, these are our top 5 reasons to book a tent, pack your bags and make a trip to the country:

Reconnect with nature (in comfort and style)

Whispering Springs Luxury Camping Resort is nestled within the rolling hills and dense forests of Northumberland County. We offer 200 acres for you to experience and explore, from picturesque ponds and old growth forests to the remnants of a prairie-savannah ecosystem. Observe ducks and Canadian geese as they frolic in the ponds, or perhaps stumble across a doe and her fawn as you hike one of our numerous walking trails.

Unique and affordable staycation

While glamping has been gaining popularity throughout the world, particularly on the west coast of Canada and the United States, it is still relatively unheard of in Southern Ontario. Whispering Springs would like to change this, and offer Canadians a unique and unforgettable vacation experience that is close to home and easily accessible. Located just 1.5 hours east of Toronto, Whispering Springs is perfect for a romantic weekend getaway, corporate retreat or simply a few days away from the hustle and bustle of city life.


Whispering Springs is dedicated to being as low impact and environmentally friendly as possible, while still providing you with the comforts and luxuries of a glamping vacation. For this reason, we have kept the total number of luxury tents to a minimum and situated them in areas where they would have the least disturbance to the environment. Solar powered lanterns can be found throughout the campground, and we also utilize power from our solar panels wherever possible. We are dedicated to using environmentally friendly cleaning products, and you will find natural & organic body care products in your luxury tent.

Outdoor dining experience

One of the aspects of traditional camping that Whispering Springs did not want to change was the outdoor dining experience. Close to every luxury tent will be a BBQ and outdoor kitchen area, allowing you to easily make your own meals with comfort and convenience. Whispering Springs will also offer guests the option of purchasing baskets of local meat and produce, and an outdoor wood-fired pizza oven will be located at the Guest Pavilion for guests to use. Tea and coffee will also be available at the Guest Pavilion, and a complimentary glass of wine will be served every day at happy hour.

Peace and relaxation

Today more than ever before, individuals need a rest and respite from the stresses of everyday life. Whispering Springs Luxury Camping Resort is the perfect place to do this. As you relax in your luxurious tent, replete with a queen-sized bed, fine linens, and rustic furniture, you will be surrounded by the peace and tranquility of the forest. Treat yourself to a massage in one of our spa gazebos or simply sit back and relax in our large outdoor hot tub, overlooking our idyllic ponds and surrounded by the Canadian wilderness. Whether your vacation revolves around lounging on your private patio reading a book or hiking through our forest trails, we are confident that you will find the rest and relaxation you’re looking for.

Whispering Springs will be the first luxury camping resort in Northumberland County and one of the first in Southern Ontario. We look forward to seeing you and showing you what glamping is all about!
