Very nice park, nice friendly staff. Showers could be better for privacy and no full hook-ups are the only downsides. We would stay again. - Lynn-Donny

Great county park, hiking, nature center, great staff. Only reason to not give it a 10 is not full hookup. - Let's Ride

This is a great little campground near the Omaha (NE) metropolitan area. There are lots of hiking trails in the park and a neat little museum in the visitors center. The sites are roomy with lots of elbow room. The park rangers are very friendly and make sure all campers know about the activities in the Nature Center. They also take the time to visit and answer questions about other attractions in the area. The Nature Center is not far from the interstate, so you have easy access to Omaha and to the casinos in Council Bluffs IA). We will stay here again if we are in the area. - Bobbi1948

Camp fee is cash only. 44 sites with electric Water and dump station is available. 6 sites tents only no electric. Showers are adequate but not fancy, see thru shower curtains and no change area. Some trees but not much shade in the camp area. On the east of the camp in a boat launch on the Missouri River and on the left a very nice walking/ bike trail. - traveler 2

City owned park with on site hosts. Close to Omaha, so heavy use, especially on weekends. Located near the Missouri river so lots and lots of activity on weekends. Lots of shade trees and some sites that are not so close together as others. Restrooms and showers are older and not well maintained. Generally, an nice place to stay for a few days with weekdays being better than weekends. - marker82

We had stayed here before and were scheduled to stay here while visiting my wife's family in Omaha. Even though the sites are back-in on a paved lot with no wifi or sewer at the site, we opted to stay here because it is close to family and there are not many other choices in the Omaha area. However, when we checked in we were told that there is a $50 per night property deposit, returnable 5-7 days after departure, in addition to the camping fee. The deposit was instituted after someone backed over a pole and cost the campground $1500 according to the security guard who checks you in. Since we were planning to stay about 15 days, the deposit would have added a $750 charge to our credit card in addition to the already high $600 ($40 per day) camping fee. Even the guard said he would not stay there because of it. So we left and luckily found another park. - McLee

This park is shown on Goodsam Travel as "Bluffs Run RV Park" it is now the Horseshoe Casino. The spaces are in a cement lot with just electric and water. They have a dump station. No Wifi is available. I was mislead in believing this was a full service park. The $40 weekly and $50 on weekends is extreme considering it is not a full service park. All spaces are back in. Would not stay here again. - Mike Mac

Not quite the casino campground that I was used to. If anything I can say that it's easy in and easy out. RV spaces are are lined up around the edge of a large parking lot. Water and electric only, and a dump station. Large grassy area behind the RV's is a place to walk the pets. Look at the sites before you take any random number, as some of the sites back up to a busy road. There is a Camping World and a Bass Pro nearby for shopping. Good overnight if you are passing through to go somewhere. Don't expect any amenities unless you are into casino's. - SargeW

CASH only at this Omaha City run CG. Tough call on rating this place. It was a dust bowl the day we arrived. Our toad had a layer of dust so thick we could not see out of the windows. I had to dump a bucket of water on the windshield before unhooking it. That was just from the drive in and locating a site. Lots of fast moving traffic within the CG keeps it dusty. After an afternoon of rain, things got much better. Sites are either RV sites or tent sites. The RV sites have red topped number posts, the white topped posts are tent sites. Sites vary from level to very sloped, the closer to the water the more level they are. These water sites come with plenty of geese droppings included. The site we had was filthy and the grass around it was long overdue for mowing. That was true of most of the sites. I also checked the men's bathhouse and it was pretty disgusting. Glad we did not need to use them. Being a FCFS CG, people start coming in during the week to pick their site. We came in on a Thursday afternoon and lots of sites had trailers on them that had been left earlier in the day. 30 amp electric was good for our four day stay. Water is available on the way in at the dump station and in various locations within the CG loops. The price and location here add to the value. The locals seem happy with things as they are. It is a nice cheap CG close to the city. But they really do need someone here to keep an eye on things. There is no excuse for people to come in and leaving the sites in such a mess. Hundreds of cigarette butt's littered the ground, beer bottle caps, etc. But the place works ok for a pit stop along I-80 in the Omaha area. - Bob and Inga

Campground is still a great place to stop in the Omaha area. Problems with water noted in an earlier review had been resolved by the time we stayed here. Sites were clean and well-maintained. Sites on the lake are most popular, but all of the sites are large and have shade. Will stay here again when we come back to Omaha. Park accepts the Federal Government's Senior Pass, so rate is half off, if you have one. - Bobbi1948

Beautiful spot but they need a campground host with a rake and a garbage bag. Spots had garbage floating about and the fire rings were clogged. Our site was littered with cigarette butts. Too bad as the view is nice and most spots are shaded, just no one there to keep an eye on things. NO water while we were here as well, (had tested positive for coli). Only pota potties. - AdrianaW

We drove into and around it, then drove out. The park is first come, first serve. This is a very old and very run-down park. We've stayed in marginal parks when necessary, but this one was unacceptable. - User2861

This is the perfect park for our travel needs. No frills, very clean and well kept grounds, long back in sites. 119V steady 50A power, good water pressure, quiet at night. The sewer connection for the site we had was in an awkward, but assessable location. Nice big trees, but the majority of the sites are located so they do not interfere with the satellite signal. We definitely stay here every time we visit family in Omaha. - SuperRep

I don't often post reviews, but this RV park has bad reviews that I just don't understand! Yes, they do not take reservations, yes, it is cash or check only, and yes it is operated by a woman perhaps in her seventies who does not use the internet.. But that woman was pleasant, smiled, chatted with me during the easy check-in, and did not demand to park my rv for me. She did come out and "spot me" to be sure I didn't drive over the sewer opening which is raised a few inches from the ground.. So what??
This is a very nice little campground - the grass is well-watered and well-mowed, the water pressure is 40 which is passable, the 50 amp is solid as a rock, and the long-term residents have decently-clean setups.
Omaha needs a good campground -- it has one - Tomes. - LagunaJim

This park does not enforce any rules/restrictions. It has homeless camps set up in it that are pigsty's. On weekends, this is party central. Too many cars/people on one site. Dogs running loose. People urinating out in the open as bathroom is too far for them to walk. Very unsafe for children as cars are constantly driving through this tiny campground just to see the "circus". If this isn't enough, power is horrible. This is all just a shame to see as this area is so beautiful with the bike paths and deer & turkeys everywhere. All on a nice lake. Council Bluffs has a lot to offer but find another campground. - exit to

This was, by far, the worst state park/camping experience we've had. After one night we couldn't get back on the road fast enough. Some of the campsites appear to be used as a junkyard. There was garbage all over the park. The bathrooms were so disgusting that in the morning my children refused to use them; the men's room had fecal matter throughout the stalls. People partied until late at night; the campground was rather noisy. The water and electric loop was a little quieter, but still loud. If we have to make the trip again, we will look for a campground near Omaha instead. - GB family

Camped here during a soccer tournament. The showers are shut off by the time of year that we camp. The water hydrants are on. We fill when we get there and shower in the camper. The vault toilets are typical vault toilets. Fire rings are provided with nice racks. We bought firewood at the local hardware store. Lake is nice but at this time of year too cold to swim. We have biked and run the trails with our family. Just this morning we saw about 10 deer and a dozen wild turkeys. We have camped all over the US KOA, Good Sam, county parks, and state parks. Most reviews are filled with negativity. I have not felt unsafe here or that my children were in danger of being harmed. Because this campground does not have activities or an office I don't feel it deserves a 10. However, previous review portray this campground as full of homeless, drunks, and crackheads - which is not true. - CampingFamilyFun6

Our family stayed for 2 nights over Memorial Day weekend. Required to pay for 3 nights. Campsites were spacious and level. The proximity to the river was enjoyable. Campground neighbors were friendly and helpful. Firewood was available and cheap. We were very pleased with our stay and would return.
I noticed signs that said no tents on RV sites. I thought that was weird because we often have a "kids tent" next to our trailer. I noticed a few tents though- so it might not be enforced, but you should probably ask about this if it is an issue for you. - Ladybuggfloyd

Not much to do in the park. If you're looking for a one nighter or a base of operations, it's okay. Firewood is available but wet and rotten. Last night's first log still sits in the fire ring charred from the charcoal lighter we used to try and get it lit. River is dirty with lots of stuff floating in the water. Standing water everywhere so mosquitoes are truly a nightmare! 8pm and it was like a horror movie as the swarm descended. Can't sit outside even when covered in DEET and a smoldering fire going. I think they take it as a challenge.
Even after saying hello, we were ignored by the hosts.
The pads are level and electricity is close. Only a little shade from storm damaged trees. Grass is certainly still recovering from flooding. It's a somewhat pretty park from the inside of your RV, with spacious sites, but don't expect much for family or other outdoor activities. - SM1969

Typical state park but restored from flood. Electric only and was first rate. We were the only camper in the first loop. Quiet except for a low background noise from a quarry. Pit toilet. Worth the price for an overnight or even a couple of nights. - gumper

Great park to stay in, even with the trains. Actually, it appeared the trains did not run between 11pm and 6am as the train whistles were pretty much non-existent during those hours. Lots going on in this park with the little train you can ride on weekends, the city swimming pool a few steps away, picnic shelters, etc. The campsites, however, could use more shade as almost all sites are in full sun. - Bobbi1948

We found this park right off the interstate gps took us right to it. Electric 30/50 and water. The train woke us up but we went right back to sleep. Great value. - Ms Mellie

This park is easy access for all sizes of RVs. Can get close enough to water, depending on site. Public pool and little train museum. It is close to major rail line. Trains honking most of the night. - amdriven2liv

This is a beautiful county park located right off of the interstate (I-80). We were surprised to find out that it was open this early in the season. Because it was early we were the only campers, our site was a pull-through with electricity. Water and a dump were available. The staff was very friendly.
Thanks to the county for this beautiful park. - mountainfan

One of the best value camp grounds I have stayed at. Nice location on lake with playground just over bridge, good semi private campsites, electricity, water spigot, free dump site on way out & wifi all for $15.00!! - VPP

Stayed in first campground towards entrance site #4. Has been a wet spring and summer and every spot has its own wet muddy spot to drive through to get parked. Need more rock in sites. Rained last night and all storm water runs down road and thru site pads. Basically some road maintenance needed to address issues.
Drove thru back campground and nearly all site are back straight in short sites so not really for larger campers.
Worked good for overnite stay. - mudmaker

This is a small park in a front yard. Full hookup 50 amp, but no amenities. The owners were very nice and were helpful, but the park is overpriced for what you get. Site was flat, we were able to get satellite and Verizon was good. We would not stay here again due to the price. - Deniselg53

Nice small rv park across from the De Soto National Wildlife Refuge. Level sites, friendly people. All sites are back in. They have 5 or 6 really nice shady spots. Nice place for extended stays. - workcamper14
