I have been camping at this park for the last 5 years and as stated in previous reviews it was taken over by new owners around May or June of last year. Previous to this all the campers and owners got along very well. if there was a problem, it was made known and resolved. Now that new owners have taken over, many people have been kicked out with no explanation. The owners are doing lots of "improvements" as they call it. I guess if that means knocking down all the trees so that they can "jam" more campers in there and putting in a restaurant/marina to make more money then I guess so, but as far as I'm concerned this campground has gone to the . . . "greedy" and I wouldn't recommend it to anybody, and personally will never go back. Not to mention the price has tripled, and is still on the rise!!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.

The park went bankrupt a month ago. We were told that we could stay but many of the sites had electric and water that did not work. The roads were full of pot holes. It was obvious that no maintenance had been done on the park. Even the grass had not been mowed. The write up they had in the RPI book made this sound like paradise. We found it to be just the opposite and hooked the car up and left without staying. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We chose this park because the managment was very friendly on the phone and it is the only RV park near Omaha that is open year round. But that doesn't mean you'll get year round service. The sites seem wide in the winter mainly because there aren't that many people there. Once it fills up it looks like life will get cramped. The hook ups are difficult to find and are often shared between 4 sites... so bring extention cords and extra hoses (water & sewer). It took the managment 2 weeks to clear the interior roadways of snow. The exit, a seriously sloped experience, wasn't cleared for a month. I don't know how some of the newcomers came and went during that time. One fellow with a large Ford truck & 5th wheel plowed his way through a couple of sites to find parking. While impressive, it was a shame that more wasn't done to keep the roads clear. And no, it only snowed that one day & was clear the rest of the month. Bathrooms were closed. The rec room with modem, exercise equipment and laundry stayed open 24 hours. However, the locals smoke in there and the washers were rarely functioning. Up side, there is a marina attached on the Missouri River and the bald eagles were impressive. We probably wouldn't return to this park located 35 miles north of Omaha. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had reservations for a couple of months, but because it was the fourth of July the park was crowded and we had to stay in a site without sewer for a couple of days. The noise was horrific. I don't mind fireworks for awhile, but when they start at noon time and continue until after midnight, that's way overdone. Then the explosions at 6:00A.M. sounded like dynamite. The fireworks picked up again in the afternoon and continued. As far as we could see, just about anything goes in that park, and we were told this was the "quiet" area! It also was very muddy and the thunderstorms were awful. Several trees (about a dozen) near the park entrance were hit by lightening. Not all at the time we were there, but apparently this is a common occurance. Everyone seemed to have campfires that were started early in the day even though it was hot. The people next to us had the fire going all day and we couldn't open our windows because the smoke was thick and blowing into our rig. It was all in all, a bad experience. I can't think of anything that I liked about this campground, except there wasn't a train nearby! (So, I guess there was one thing) We camped here in a Motorhome.
