Chadron State Park, Chadron, Nebraska

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice park...... The roads have small ruts about every 50ft and you will feel them all, will also keep traffic speeds very low. We camped on site # 58 up on the hill across from the flush toilets and shower bldg. Clean toilets & showers but very dated. Small laundry in same bldg. Cabins are available. We camped at Chadron State Park in a 5th wheel. We camped at Chadron State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We arrived just after Labor Day and there was plenty of walk in only sites. Some of the following was not available...... hiking trails, tennis, frisbee golf, swimming pool, picnicking, horseback riding, etc. Chadron is about 7-8 miles north and has a Walmart along with other shopping choices.

Lake Minatare State Recreation Area, Scottsbluff, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice well kept park. #1 complaint is the same at most parks "pets not on a leash", Owners not picking up after their dogs. COE parks do a much better job at enforcing this issue. We did have an issue with the camper next to us about allowing there dogs to roam free and actually pee on our chair, so we talked to the Ranger and he said he would talk to them and he did because the dogs were on a leash from then on. We stayed for 12 days and contrary to another post earlier we saw the Ranger every day. Most pads were level and the 50 amp service was great. We camped in site #11, there is lots of shade trees at most sites. We did not stay in the HQ Park, we stayed in Butte View where all sites are walk up only. Once again another park in Nebraska with pay showers. Remember they also have daily park fee $8 if out of state. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Lake Minatare State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Scotts Bluff is large enough to purchase just about anything you would need. Very easy town to get around. They do have a small zoo on the south edge of town. There is a RV Park next to the zoo if someone is interested but the sites are not very big, but they do have "Free Firewood" for thier campers.

Lake Ogallala State Recreation Area, Ogallala, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Lots of shade, no problem finding a site on a Thurs at the first come, first serve section (a very large area); but by Thurs evening the place was filling fast. The restrooms were dated, not very clean. Would stay here again when in the area although the price was a bit much for services offered. An additional $8 daily state parks pass fee is also required. Once again table and ring on wrong side of camper but we survived. Site is back in but because it is 1st site in loop we were able to pull through using turn around. There is a couple other parks on this lake and if you want too can camp on nice sandy beach, we saw at least a dozen campers on beach. This whole area is sand. We camped at Lake Ogallala State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Walmart has a nice area for Truckers & Rv shoppers, even has concrete sidewalk to parking area, this is a very nice touch. When done shopping just drive to ramp and load up. This town "Ogallala" is large enough to have anything you might need.

Red Willow Reservoir SRA, McCook, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very clean park. You must self register at this park. We stayed in the electric loop. There is water & dump available. I believe all Nebraska Parks charge daily use fee so we bought the annual pass $46 at 1st park because we will be staying a total 24 days in Nebraska and don't worry about daily fees which are $8 for non state residents. Dirt roads and grassy sites that are fairly level, roads were muddy as it was raining when we arrived. There are picnic tables and a fire ring, which again are on the wrong side of camper; there are several parks in Nebraska with table & ring on wrong side. They have flush toilets, but do charge for showers which is very petty on their part. Only 4 campers including host in park, this park is for those who want quiet & solitude. We would stay here again if in the area. We only stayed overnight. We camped at Red Willow Reservoir SRA in a Fifth Wheel.

Methodist Cove COE, Republican City, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Another great COE park...... There is a loop with full hookup back in sites. Most sites seem to have some shade. Water pressure was good, 50 amp electric. They have walk up sites. Lots of room between sites. No problem with big rigs in this park. If you are tent campers this has to be one of the best C/G for you. They have some full hookups & some electric and water only for $4 less. This lake is very heavily used by both boaters having fun and fishing folks. We were on site #95 and turns out to be the best site in this c/g we think. We camped at Methodist Cove COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is just outside of Alma, NE......... 2.5 miles from town. Fully stocked Grocery Store in Alma carries just about a little of everything. Subway at main intersection 1/2 mile from town. The Station Bar & Grill actually have "Flame Broiled" burgers and they are fantastic. You can see the grill they cook them on outside. Approx 1 mile from the park going to town is Firewood 4 sale at a great price $10 per rack l& arge log splitter in yard.

Curtis Creek COE, Junction City, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in loop C site #9 [37 ft 5th wheel] , great site across the road from lake & beach. 1st day was 100 degrees and we never had any elec issues using 30 amp. Our rig is 50 amp and we decided to try turning on 1 ac at a time and they both worked great. We do almost all our cooking outside so we used the 20 amp outlet and everything worked great. Previous review said all sites were double which is not correct only 5 sites are double out of 20 plus in this loop. We left the state park 12 miles away which is a joke for $29 a night and came here. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Curtis Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Riverside East COE, Burlington, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

There are [2] parks here "Riverside East" [no hot water] & "Riverside West" We paid $7.50 with our Senior Discount Pass. It appears that some rules for COE parks are violated. Dogs are not leashed, No one manning the booths during the day, so it is hard to check in. We do like the park, but the contract people are not competent. We are leaving after 2 nights because the restrooms are filthy. We said something to the host and her reply was "the cleaning lady is terrible". We camped at Riverside East COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Foscue Creek COE, Demopolis, Alabama

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

Very clean COE. There were some ants around the pad but we spray levelers, wheels, electric cable about 6 in above ground and the same with water hose every time we setup and did not have any issues with ants. Electric and water no issues. Most of the sites are waterfront, we were in #12 with lots of space and some shade. Hosts were always available and very helpful, they did a great job keeping everything in this park clean and organized. Most sites have sewer; ours did not, we don't need sewer. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Foscue Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Cricket Creek COE, Omaha, Arkansas

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for 7 days and observed the following: 1-Campers putting trash bags on the ground and animals getting into them. 2-Campers parking veh & boats all over the grass. 3-Dogs not leashed and crapping all over. 4-Not able to use restrooms while they are being cleaned even though they have [4] of them. Only reason we were able to stay for as long as we did we were in Branson most of the time. Great park grounds and lake beach, but the service was the worst we have ever encountered at any park. We camped at Cricket Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Ortona South COE, Moore Haven, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

My wife and I have stayed at many park campgrounds and this one is by far cleanest of any park bar none. Crew would come in several times weekly to clean restrooms and sites.. Was great to see the water traffic go through the locks often. Hosts are great, they should be hired to visit all COE and show other Hosts how to do it right. We will definitely return to this campground. We have found what makes a Great Park is Great Hosts. We camped at Ortona South COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Ranger in charge of this park knows what he is doing, and has the right people to oversee this park daily. Just sit back and see how a park should be run daily.
