We were originally going to stay here for 2 weeks, but within two days we signed up for 3 more weeks. The owners are true RV'ers, and understand just what we need. They don't crowd campers together if they don't need to, and they don't have a lot of ridiculous rules (just common sense). The owners are the friendliest we've run into. The park is situated conveniently off I-29, but there's no road noise. It's also half way between Omaha/Council Bluffs and Sioux City, making day trips a breeze. All of the utilities we look for (Wifi, water, power) worked great. The area (the heart of the Loess Hills) was great for motorcycling. The sites are gravel, with tall shade trees. We usually don't care for trees (due to our satellite dish and tall RV), but the owners trim all of the branches way up, so there's never a problem, but there is shade. They also have propane on site. We would have given them a 10 if the sites and road were paved. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was a nice find for being off I-29. The owners were great and very attentive. The grounds were very well kept and each site had flowers planted. The restrooms and showers were immaculate. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Narrow roads, short sites, untrimmed trees, no gravel nor grass. Overnight stay, would not return. Cat on freezer in office and owner's dog roaming at large, definite negatives. New owners, hopefully things will improve. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The name says it all. On Ur Wa....... Good place to spend a night On Ur Wa to where ever you are going. I spent two nights here because I was desperate and really needed some down time. Wouldn't recommend two nights here unless you were like me, just needed the down time. There were some high end and middle RV's here. Only saw one "older" RV. Sites are gravel, and pretty long. Spacing between RV's is adequate. Good trees for shade. Check in was good, they accept Good Sam. The check in person said, "One night?" and was surprised when I said, "Well, I'd like two nights....." Wi-Fi worked great, but park was only 1/3 full when I was here. Restrooms are unisex at one end of park and pretty clean. There are separate men/women restrooms near office, but I didn't get to check those. Laundry Room was clean except deep sink looked kind of yucky. Laundry is $1.75 to wash, $1.75 to dry. Kind of "medium" price-wise. Park is within walking distance of a Mexican restaurant and several other fast food restaurants. No cable, but will pick up multiple copies of all major network stations over the air (including PBS). (multiple as in, some Nebraska, some Iowa, take your pick which state you want to hear news from). Since I spent two days here, I had a great time deciding which PBS was better between Iowa and Nebraska. The Good Sam price is reasonable for what you get. Price I'm showing is the Good Sam rate before taxes. Easy on, easy off freeway. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent+ RV park and management. Very clean facilities to include, restrooms, showers and park cleanliness. Owner pride is evident. The owners were professional, customer focused, very pleasant, helpful and accommodating. Location to I-29 near by, without highway noise. Close to dining options to include DQ for your ice cream niche. Strongly recommend short term or long term when in the area. We will stop by again if passing through. We only stayed one night due to our schedule. Not much going on in this part of the state, but the RV park should be a consideration next time you're in the area. Very well run... My compliments to the owners! We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice find. Great place for and overnight stay or as long as you like. Owners were a younger couple who full timed for a while and know what it takes to make for an enjoyable stay. Beautiful level sites with no long list of rules, just use the Golden Rule. Would go out of my way to stay there again. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a small, friendly, well-maintained campground. It is convenient to I-29 and we discovered it by accident in 2013. We have since stayed here 3 times. It may have the nicest bathrooms we have seen. The owners are very cordial and take time to get to know their guests. We have a 45' coach and the sites are very long and well-spaced. There aren't a lot of "frills", but the rate is fair and the peace and quiet are nice after a long day on the road. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a perfect campground for an overnight stay or maybe longer if you are in the area. For us it was for overnight. It is very easy to find off the interstate and we did not notice any interstate traffic noise. The sites are shaded with cottonwood trees but we were able to use our satellite. The bathrooms were a bit dated but clean. The sites were nicely graveled and well maintained. The Internet signal was strong and appreciated. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the campground. The owner was very friendly and we felt welcome. They have very few rules but we encountered no problems while there. We would stay here again. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice shady site with long spaces. We stayed here overnight. It's halfway between Omaha and Sioux City. The people who run the place are very nice and friendly. The sites are all pull-throughs and if you don't want to unhitch there are several eating places close by. Sites are gravel and lots of mosquitoes. Price reflects a Good Sam discount. Easy off and on highway. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Good Sam rate including taxes. You can't get a better "overnight" stop. There is fresh gravel on roads and pads. Sites are level; utilities excellent. Most sites are pull-through. Beautiful shade trees. The owners go out of their way to work with you and help you. They don't have cable (over the air works great), but they did pick a site for us where our satellite would work. They are continuously working on the grounds. If there were a pool and cable, the rating would be higher. We would stay here again. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Wonderful, friendly park. We were greeted by the young couple running the park, checked in, and guided to our site. The young lady even provided boards to go under our jacks, since it had been raining, and even placed the boards under our jacks for us!!! Very friendly, wonderful huge cottonwood trees for shade, and a very well kept park. The only reason I didn't rate it a ten was for a very minor drainage issue, BUT, the area has had a LOT of rain for the last few days. We will definitely use the park again when in the area.

New owners - 2 years ago. They have worked diligently to add tons of gravel to the roads and sites as well as putting up a wood fence across the front of the property. All is kept up well and all utilities are well-placed and in good working order. Sites in the back are a little close together, but are 100 feet long. Owner/operators are wonderful. Will definitely stay again. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.
