Whiting forest is the perfect destination for nature lovers and photographers who are looking for breath-taking natural views of wetland, forest and meadows. This forest spans across 54 acres of unspoilt natural beauty that is a true treat to sore eyes. The adjoining orchid garden covers about 2 acres of land and is the perfect spot for photography. The major attraction here is the ongoing canopy project that will build a 1400-foot canopy that will reach a height of four floors. The young members of your family will be happy in the playground at Whiting Forest that comprises of rides and slides that promise unlimited fun. The snake Creek restoration facility at the forest aims at waste water management.

We had a blast on the new canopy walk. The ropes area was fun to play around on for people of all ages. We sat and lounged in the 'hammock' area and watched the trees sway. After the walk we enjoyed the cafe. The fire was nice to warm up by and the food and drinks were very reasonably priced. I recommend the hot chocolate made with milk and actual chocolate
We all loved it. The area is clean and really well taken care off. There is a paved trail and another covered with wood chips that goes around the park, really nice place to enjoy nature, watch birds and relax. There is a playground designed to go along the main theme of the park. The cafeteria is really comfortable, has a fireplace for the cold days and our coffee and snacks were really good. Totally recommend it.
Such a cool experience!! Beautiful visitor's center and a great natural playground! We didn't get to walk the trails because it was too cold, but the canopy trail was absolutely awesome. We will definitely be back in the summer when we can spend more time!
Fantastic day with the family. Lots to see with the canopies and there is a nice playground as well. The weather will make or break this place for you so dress right for a good time. All of the ramps, ropes, nets, bridges and railing are made from super high quality materials. Felt really first rate and you see the forest and wonder grounds from a whole new perspective. Kids will love it and you don't have to worry about them falling off or through anything. Really a treat.
Everything top notch here and the price is reasonable. Consider the annual pass since it's only the cost of 2 trips. The elevated boardwalk is everything you've probably been hearing about. It extends to 3 points that each have unique features, with fun little pit stops along the way. A unique take on a splash park will greet you after the visitor center. Traditional slides and swings are sort of hidden among several water features. Any kid that can walk will enjoy this place. Finally, my group wandered the trails. Many of them snake around the ponds that you can see from the overlooks. These aren't just trails cut out randomly in the woods. They've placed chairs, benches, and even a fire bowl throughout the paths in addition to the beautiful features. This was a great place to bring my family and it sounds like it's still growing.
