15 Parks near Missouri Valley, Iowa
Sep 2015 - $30.00
This park is located at Horseshoe Casino. As a 45 ft motorhome with 4 slides we found it comfortable, clean, friendly, safe and convenient. It is a paved parking lot; however, behind each site is lots of grass. Spaces are plenty wide, good 50 amps, security patrols the area, clean laundry. No sewer but they have a dump station. Extremely convenient to Omaha, I-80 and I-29. - Freedom Bus

The rv park is ok in a pinch it is right of the interstate. Price is a little high for a parking lot with only water and sewer. They do have a dump station.
I doubt we would stay here again. - Bear12

Just a parking lot with power and water hookup. The spaces are too narrow for rigs with slides, but they only use every other space so it works. Noise from interstate was loud. No security in sketchy area. You don't get any discounts for casino or restaurant.
If you can dry camp you might be able to save $30 to $40 by staying in different parking lot. - sfrantz

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

This campground is located close to the Missouri River and to DeSoto Bend Wildlife Refuge. The Bertrand Museum (sunken paddleboat sternwheeler) is at the nearby Visitors Center. Campsites are spacious in a park with many tall cottonwood trees. Campground host was a volunteer and was very friendly and helpful. The Council Bluffs area is 20-25 miles away. - gbburgess

Currently closed due to flood damage. - peakcomm

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

This is one very nice county campground that is RV friendly. Very clean and quite with large sites. Lots of fireflies and deer to watch in the tree line. Missouri River is across the parking lot. No reservations so week-ends can be problem. Work campers run the place, but they were very friendly and helpful. - Zimectrin

The Shelby Inn and RV Park is an easy on-off stop while crossing Iowa. However, it is just a field with RV hookups. No frills. A few picnic tables to share. Fine for an overnight stop but nothing more. You were given a key to turn on the water but it took a walk back to the office to exchange keys until we found one that fit. Pretty pricey. But, it works for the night. - themom3

Just off the interstate. Plenty of food places available close by. Although the place is up for sale the RV park is in reasonable condition. Not many sites occupied so getting in and out was good. If it gets busy I feel it would be difficult. Sites are not long so everybody parks on empty side sites, a habit which is prone with issues and could be a problem. No Wi-Fi available in the RV park but if you visit the Motel you can get Wi-Fi here. Slight noise due to the interstate and lights from the nearby gas stations do interfere into the park. All sites are on a gradual incline, so stay at the bottom or go to the top near to the bathrooms and they seem to be the most level. Handy off the interstate and okay for a overnight stay but not for a long time. - robertjoy

Have stayed here before, so stayed again as it is very convenient to I-80 with a restaurant and a Dairy Queen within walking distance. Long gravel pull through and mostly level. However, this time we had to try 4 different sites for water; a little park maintenance would be in order. Because of convenience will stay again if in area. - utahhusker

This campground is no longer accepting off the road campers, nor is it honoring Passport America. The manager did, however, recommend a campground down the road. - bones1941

Gated and nice, but rather tough to pull out due to large trees. We paid $12.50 for a Passport America Rate. Would definitely stay here again. It is a full-timer park but very nice people and owners are very nice. - tbg

Most people who stay here own the space they are in so there are a lot of personal items around each rig. The manager was really nice and led us to our spot in her golf cart. They were very accommodating about accepting mail or FedEx which helps when you are on the road. We did not have sewer but they do have a dump site which we did not use. We would stay here again and recommend this to others as it was quiet. We had a bit of trouble finding it due to the road construction but that won't happen forever. - rolling homeless

We were referred to this campground by another campground which was full. We pulled into this place and should have pulled out, but we were tired. The campground is old and not taken care of, the bathrooms and showers were bad. Our septic line backed up and we had we had to dump at another site. The park caters to monthly, but most the rigs were clean. This park is still a pretty park, grassy and shady, just run down and dirty. Due to recent flooding (which had not reached the park) the water was not fit to drink, luckily it did not leave a stain. This place was way over priced, don't bother stopping. - 10-10

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

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

Cunningham Lake is a surprisingly quiet park on the far north side of Omaha. We stayed here during the College World Series and were amazed at how peaceful it was. All the sites are large and several of them are pull-through. One great surprise - which isn’t posted anywhere in the park – is that the City of Omaha, which runs the campground, honors the Golden Age/Senior Pass discount you get in the Federal Parks. Just put your pass number on the pay envelope and pay the discounted fee. This is a cash only park, so make sure you have correct change to put in your pay envelope. We will definitely camp here again. Our rate reflects our Senior Pass discount. - Bobbi1948

No frills Army Corps campground. Lots of rules, including no RV camping on non-electric (tent) sites and vice versa. But we were in a self-contained Class B and didn't need power that night, so took the spot anyway. Very old bathrooms kept moderately clean. Easy access during our visit to Omaha, with big strip malls/grocery store just a few miles down the road. However the campground seems to attract non-recreational users too. Saw several men camping with their roofing work trucks (maybe a storm recently hit?) and people obviously living out of their cars. One couple got in a fight with another long term resident and called police. - RVNed

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

I do not recommend this Park. Owner insists on parking the rig himself. Office is often unattended. Phones unanswered. Will not take reservations. Unfriendly. Caters to construction and long term renters rather than over-nighters or short term. - Rollenhome

The above rate includes tax. This park is small and even though it was about half full, I think they were all long-term residents except us. Our experience with most long-term parks seems they can be 'trashy' but this one was pretty well maintained and not a lot of 'stuff' around. Power and water pressure were good, however, we couldn't get our satellite to work because of all the trees. Sites moderate in size and the manager/owner was pleasant (just not overly friendly). We'd stay here again as it is convenient to areas we want to visit. - Wannabees

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
