Really enjoyed this stop. Beautiful cottonwood trees provide a great shade. Weather was cool while we were here. Owners provided us with a Fourth of July feast which was very good. Long sites with some pull-through. Some sites are available if you have satellite. Others offer cable tv. Streets are crushed gravel. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very spacious park with lots of shade and large sites. Wonderful owners who are RVers. Utilities are fine. Wifi o.k. May over-the-air TV channels. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy in out from the interstate but very little noise. Beautiful majestic trees line the lanes and provide a lot of shade but if you need open sky for satellite, they have sites like that too. Many pull thrus with few back ins on one side. We were escorted to our site and the owner lined us up perfectly straight with the perfect amount of distance to the pedestal. Water pressure was strong. Owners are the best - helpful, low key and hospitable. They helped us with a fridge problem. After a bad storm with strong winds, they were out early in the morning cleaning up the debris and tree branches on the sites. Nice big dog park. Sites are hard packed gravel with grass in between. There's pride of ownership in this park. We would gladly stay here again. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overnight stay. Easy to find. Check-in was easy. Owners (husband and wife) very friendly. Escorted to site. Solid gravel road, well maintained. Lots of shade trees throughout park. Partial shade, pull-thru gravel, level site with grassy sides and ample room on both sides. Able to get satellite. Utilities easy to connect. Good water pressure. Open field in rear of park to walk pets. Bathrooms looked clean (did not use). Easy to maneuver 43' motorhome w/tow. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Trees cover every site, big tree between sites. Easy access from interstate and noise minimal. Camp store has lot small items you might need. Internet bit slow but works. Can get several tv stations over the air. Hostess friendly and helpful. Site level and accommodate rig and toad. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great little campground. Owners were exceptionally friendly and helpful. You can tell they're "people people". Our gravel site was perfectly level, wide and plenty long enough for me to stay hooked up as we were moving on first thing in the morning. Water pressure was good. Electrical voltage was strong and steady even though everyone in the park was running their AC since it was quite hot out. Sewer port was clean and accessible. My only complaint, and it is a minor one, is that the WiFi didn't seem to work well at all. Although the signal strength was good, I kept getting dropped by the system. My computer would then have a difficult time re-acquiring an IP address. No big problem as Verizon worked quite well. The campground is conveniently located about a block off of I-29. Traffic noise was minimal. We will definitely return when we come through this was again. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice, and nicely laid out campground. Owners are very helpful. Attention has been paid to making the area look attractive by planting flowers.

The site was not level side to side. There had been a lot of rain and the door side of the site was quite low.

There's a shaded, fence-in dog run which our dogs and I enjoyed.

The owners have some local wines and are happy to pour tastes of what they have open. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is conveniently located off I-29 yet there is no road noise. There are large cottonwood trees throughout the park for great shade, also a few sites more in the open. We could not get satellite, but we got plenty of stations over the air. A DQ, convenience store, and a restaurant are all within walking distance. There is also a very good restaurant in town. The little store on-site also is well-stocked. The owners live on site and are very much hands-on and friendly without being intrusive. I must add that we endured a sudden and fierce windstorm one night, with winds from 40-70 MPH which blew for 3 hours! The owners went door-to-door to let us know they were opening the office for shelter. A branch went through the top of a man's camper. The owners got out there in the midst of this storm, got on a ladder, got the branch off, and patched the man's roof so rain wouldn't get in. This truly is going above and beyond. I cannot say enough about this couple, they work harder on upkeep than any we've seen. They even have a pot of flowers on each site! They only take a few long-term residents, so there are always plenty of sites available, and they stay very busy. Sites are level and long enough for a motorhome and toad. This is a great place, we were sorry to leave. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Easy on and off the highway. Great place to spend the night or a few days. Lovely shaded pull through sites. Staff is helpful and friendly. The campground and facilities are spotless. We stayed here coming and going on our trip. Will plan on visiting again. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great RV park just off I-29. Perfect for an overnight stay or for a few days. The owners are very nice and accommodating. The park is clean and well kept. Most sites are pull-through and some are very generous and big-rig friendly. Will definitely stay here again on our way through. We stayed in a 42' rig.

Good spot to stop over for the night. We happened to pull in on Memorial Day weekend and snagged one of the last spots. It's close to the highway, but with very little road noise. They included a free bbq for the holiday weekend which was awesome. This is a bit more than we normally spend for a stop-over en-route, but this was well worth it. Very quaint and operated by great owners. All hook-ups functioned well and theres a small laundry room and store in the office. Our rate was 36, minus the Good Sam discount, but we were charged $9 as a kid tax ($3 per kid I'm assuming). We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
