We enjoy the open sites with the longer pads. We have a camper and our group of friends have tents and we reserve a couple sites in a row and have always been satisfied with our stays. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pretty park and reasonably close to Omaha. Our site on Reserve America was supposed to be 50 feet and we could barely fit our 40 foot motorhome in it. So you might want to check this if you have a big rig. Our site did have 50 amp service but no water or sewer at the site. Pretty view of the lake and the park is very beautiful. Some train noise, but not bad. Shower was dirty and full of bugs, so we didn't use it. Price reflects campground price, but then $4 per day, per vehicle (RV & tow car) is added, so that's a bit pricey for just electric. But it's the state campground experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I traveled through Omaha on my way from Colorado back to the East coast and found this campground on my GPS. I was confused at first about how the state parks work with access passes but the staff was very helpful. This was a beautiful campground right on the river and it was packed full of different types of people: families, groups of friends, singles, etc. I only stayed one night because of travel plans but enjoyed that night. It's close to Omaha and inexpensive. I would recommend this campground. We camped here in a Tent.
Typical Nebraska Recreation campground/park. The staff very friendly, grounds maintained well. The shower/restrooms were old and in need of remodeling. I have camped here for 26 years and the shower/restrooms were new then, but nothing has been done to remodel/upgrade. Past few years added more RV pads, non-electric. Only a few sites with water hook-ups. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is great--we stayed in the Caboose park. The cabins could use a little work, but they were still pretty nice. The campgrounds are hard-surfaced and there are lots of choices to choose from. Playgrounds were nice and lots of shade everywhere. We camped here in a .
Nice State Park. I grew up in the area and camped there so took the kids there on a trip while passing through the area. They have paved everything since I was a kid which is nice. There are several small lakes to fish and one lake has a nice swim beach. There are also Union Pacific Cabooses that are fully self contained you can rent to stay in. Some sites are right on the Platte River, but not much of a river in August. Sites are well spaced and pretty roomy. Restrooms and showers were pretty clean too. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
