One Bedroom Camping, Sleeps 4
ABOUT US, THE BARRICK FAMILY - (Fun History) 2016, Dr. Robert Barrick and Family of 6 kids left their 6000 sqft home on the golf course in Cedar City, and moved into a 700 sqft, 1960 s hunting cabin off the grid. At the time, it only had one bedroom and a loft. With a record breaking winter (350% of normal) the Barricks grew close as a family and learned how to do hard things as they labored together to help build what you see today as Whispering Pines. That first year proved to be a defining and character building time for them all. From their generator shed burning down leaving them with little power for over a month, to their daughter being attacked by a bear and courageously chasing it off the mountain. The Barricks had a year to remember. As you sit and watch the deer peacefully graze out into the meadow, you can hear the wind whisper through the pines. Listen closely and you will hear Ol Tom Haycock and John and Alice Seaman welcoming you to his cherished valley. Grocery stores are 20 min away so make sure to stop at a grocery store on your way in. Coming from the North, shop at Panguitch, Coming from the south, shop at Terry s or Family Dollar in Orderville. If coming from Cedar City, shop in Cedar city. There is a gas station only 2 min away that provides your normal gas station food along with some pretty good steak burgers, chicken wings, and hotdogs. If you are wanting to eat out, I suggest traveling 15 min to Duck Creek village where there is a great deli called Martin s Corner Deli. Hatch also has the Cafe Adobe (closed Sundays and Mondays and close sometimes at 7pm) so go early. Orderville has a great german bakery and a pizza place.

Unique stay between Bryce & Zion
We were visiting the area in early May and looked for a place between Bryce and Zion. There is either very small hotels or RhaV/camping areas available in the area. We wanted to spend a couple of days in one place, since we had 4-5 days in a row of 1 night stays throughout Arizona and Utah. The site is about half way between the 2 parks. Finding it was easy. It is quite and relaxing. Place to have fire for each wagon site. Wood was supplied. The wagons had a queen bed and set of bunk beds. We had my wife, daughter and me. We used one of the bunks for luggage. There is little space for luggage on the floor. It was in the 30's and 40's and cold. The fire was nice so was the heated mattresses and space heater in the wagon. We stayed warm enough. They have an AC unit if needed in the summer. The bath rooms area a short distance and private for each site. They are clean and has a heater. It was great with the cold weather. This is the first year and they are working on improvements on the property but it already looks quite nice. If you are visiting the National Parks and staying in hotels most of the time, but a different experience for a few days this is it. All 3 of us would go back for a visit. The family, including Kristi and her daughter, Lilly, are very nice and helpful.
