Don Tardy and his wife Jan West Tardy, son Colt Perrin and daughter Bree Perrin purchased Whispering Pines in May 2012. They immediately began renovations, adding 8 new cabins, upgrading roads, and remodeling existing facilities. Just four months later, Whispering Pines was invited to become a member of the highly-respected and popular Jellystone Park™ franchise. Many more changes and improvements were soon to come.
