Whiting Woods

This 80-acre tract of dense native timber is located 4 miles southwest of Mapleton.  Approximately 10 acres have been developed for camping, picnicking, hiking and nature studies. A 1.6 mile trail takes you around the whole timber, with four benches for stopping and relaxing along the way.  An open shelter house, 3 camping pads with 30 amp hook-ups, drinking water, and vault type toilet facilities are available.  Upright/ground grills and picnic tables are also available. Whiting Woods is an excellent place to view wildlife and provides great hunting opportunities. Electric campsites are $20.00 per night, non-electric are $15.00 per night.  A 10:30 curfew is enforced for all visitors. We currently do not take reservations for camping at this park as it is first come, first serve.
