Mark describes the Whisper Canyon Campground to be a quiet place. He explains that there are no major cities nearby. Instead, there are two lakes, farms, forests, and ranches. Located near the lakes are three main restaurants; a pizza restaurant, a sandwich restaurant, and a sit-down pasta restaurant. The two lakes in the area are relatively nearby the campground--one is ten miles away and the other is eighteen miles away. People often go to the lakes to waterski and/or swim.

History

The Whisper Canyon Campground first opened in 1978, and it was owned by a man who gained the property through an inheritance. He and two other men turned the 160-acre property into a campground for the purpose of hosting children's groups. After five or six years, they started renovating the property. They upgraded many of the accommodations and started charging for people to stay there. 

After a few years, a corporation took over the property. Because the corporation is located away from the Whisper Canyon Campground property, they decided to have someone else run the property. The current owners started operating the property five years ago in 2016. Since they have owned it, they have put in the kitchen, expanded the cabins, and added more seating. Future plans for the property include building outdoor basketball courts, putting in a professional volleyball net for use in the summers, and adding a swimming pool.
