Ag Park is one of the few REV Camp grounds with hookups in Columbus. The camp ground is part of the county's Agricultural Complex which holds all major outdoor events. Centrally located. Sites are spacious. No picnic tables. Grass spaces with dirt roads. Besides short-term sites the grounds also contain long-term camping in spaces 1-19. They do not take reservations and spaces are on a first come-first serve basis. No reservations taken seems to be a theme found by this camper throughout Central Nebraska. This makes it worrisome when coming in with a big rig and not knowing if you'll have a place to stay! Office staff friendly and helpful. Be advised, during 2009 Columbus has diverted Semi Trucks and other large vehicles around Columbus due to the replacement of the viaduct over the Union Pacific Rail Road lines. We were able to access the Ag Park from Highway 30 on the North side of town. If you are coming from Highway 81 S. go into Columbus and turn on 8th Street and follow 8th Street all the way down to 12th Avenue. Turn left/north on 12th Avenue and follow 12th until you reach 15th Street. Turn right/east onto 15th Street which dead-ends into the complex. Call first to make sure no events are planned.

We stayed here for two days. This is a wonderful campground. My husband is a disabled vet and in WA State vets camp for free in state parks with a WA State Disabled Vets Lifetime Pass. We had site #3 and it was situated next to the river. Site was clean, utilities worked well. Lots of wildlife. Sites are spacious with quite a bit of room in between. Didn't use the showers. We came in late afternoon on a Sunday. Was a bit difficult to find the turn off as it is in town. There was lots of traffic and it was a bit hairy navigating. From I-90 take exit 280 for Maple Street toward Lincoln Street. Merge onto W 5th Avenue. Turn Left at S Walnut Street and continue on N Maple Street Access Street. Take a slight right at N Maple Street. Turn left at W Frances Avenue/WA-291. Frances merges with W Nine Mile Road/WA-291. Turn left at W Rifle Club Road. There will also be a park sign that states Bowl and Pitcher Campground that points down W Rifle Club Road. Follow the road through the residential area. Take a slight left onto N Auberey L White Parkway. Follow road to the signs pointing to the campground.
