12 Parks near Pacific Junction, Iowa
Sep 2015 - $16.00
When we arrived, there is a sign showing a map of the campground, the prices, how to register, and a drop box for the money. While we completing the registration, a gentleman showed up and told us our site number, the rules, and the wi-fi password. At the site, we found that the sewer and electrical were on the one side, while the water was shared and on the opposite side of the site. There is not much shade, the road and sites were fairly level, with gravel. The wi-fi was all right, but better in the mornings. The park is right next to northbound I-29, so traffic noise is louder in morning. It also appears to be in the flight path of Offutt AFB, so there is also noise from planes. It is a basic park, but good for the price. We would stay there again. - Bbtj

Easy access off of I-29. I was surprised the interstate didn't bother me like I thought it might. The owners are great and very friendly. Many of the RVers here were working on construction projects in the area. No problems. Wi-Fi worked good but was throttled back to about 2 Mbps download. I would stay here again. Can't beat it for the price. - User3435

Rate reflects 30 amp service. We spent one night here on our way home from CA. This is a good, no-frills campground. Campground and restrooms are clean. Although the registration process is self-service, the campground owner came by to greet us and make sure we were settled in. Only disadvantage is the road noise -- campground is very close to I-29. Would stay here again if in the area. - grifjj

We stopped here for one night while passing through. Do some geographical research before you come here. The FamCamp is not on the base. It is located just east of the runway outside the fence at what they call the "base lakes" area. Getting to it requires a lot of street running through Belleview. The MWR office is beside the campground. Staff was friendly. There is a snack bar and pool here. The campground pads are densely packed. Since this is off base non-military people can use it as a guest of a sponsor. We met some of them. - Tidy Boy

Spent one night on our way across country and was surprised when we pulled in and discovered all the water spigots open. They decided to turn the water off and didn't tell us when we made reservations a month earlier. Luckily we had a full fresh water tank. One of our neighbors told us about the bathrooms in the boathouse building and gave us the combination to get in. We never saw a camp host, but there was someone at the boathouse, when we went in the next morning, who directed us to the tank-fill spigot in between spaces 3 & 4 next to the horse shoe pits. Sites had nice concrete pads with gravel approach and departures and had plenty of room around them for slides, awnings, and such. WiFi was good, with no password required and had 2 or 3 bars depending on which antenna you used. Showers were inserts into older stalls, so they were very small for my 6' plus frame. Bathrooms were dated, but very clean with plenty of hot water and good pressure. We stayed here to visit the SAC Air & Space Museum, (which is about an hour away past Gretna), so we didn't use any other amenities. Aircraft and trains were heard but never disturbed us - your sensitivity may vary. We'll stay here again, but hopefully the water will still be on! - NavyStore

I cannot really add much more to the previous reviewer (Next Mission). This is a terrific campground, with paved and level sites, a beautiful fishing lake, and great customer service. WiFi was good for us, and we noticed at least four hotspots. We will definitely camp here again. - CO2RV

This city park sits on the banks of the Missouri River. The sites are large, level, have a concrete pad, picnic table and lots of grass. All are back-in. There are walking/biking trails adjacent to the park. Reservations are easily made on-line. 50 amps is available on a very limited number of sites. There is water but no sewer. The dump station if convenient and clean. - Freedom Bus

I only rated service as very good because we booked on the internet and had no contact with anyone. No need for service. It is a very nice park located on the Missouri River. Big sites, some with shade. We would go out of our way to stay here again. - Beas

I would have given this park a ten if they had sewer and an easier way to make a reservation. I tried 3 times on computer and twice on kiosk at trailer, all failed. Tried one more time from PC after I found a site and it finally worked. The host, who helps people all the time, even has trouble. If you are going to have a camp host use him, not some gimmick reservation programs that sometimes works. I was towing a race trailer with car inside and had difficulty finding a place to park it so I could use it for my car, it's a 66 Mustang so I don't leave it out overnight. But all is well. - utahhusker

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
Jul 2015 - $16.00
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

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
Aug 2014 - $37.00
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

This park is located at Harrah's Horseshoe Casino.
With a 40 foot coach it was OK.
Basically just parking around the perimeter of a large paved parking lot with water and Electric at the back of each site.
Security patrolled the area regularly.
Overpriced for a Casino so we did not bother to gamble and leave any more money.
Main advantage, it's close to Omaha.... - happyflyer

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
Jul 2016 - $30.00
Sites are VERY close together, Can't put out awnings. No picnic tables. I called ahead and was told there was WiFi. When I registered they said the WiFi was inside the casino and I could bring my computer inside.
Showers were basically in good shape but needed a deep cleaning. Wads of hair in drain, and you could tell showers hadn't been washed in weeks. Water flow was a lukewarm trickle.
Would not go back. - Silvana CLark

This is a nice park and a good value. It was very clean and the site spacing is good. I had a back in site and there was plenty of room for our MH and toad. - Flyertx

We love camping at this clean, tranquil park. The views are serene, and the hiking/biking trails are excellent. - Luv-2_rv
May 2016 - $16.00
Beautiful park and lake. Slabs are 50 ft long for RV's and tents. It was Memorial Day weekend, and we luckily got one of the last spots. When you arrive, register with the camp host, they take cash or check only. No showers. Grass and small trees to separate the sites, but there are no low lying branches to scrape against. The park is in a nice/newer area of town with shopping. Gates close at 10 pm so hopefully you don't have any plans to go out to dinner or see a movie while you're in Omaha. - cherrytree

We stayed here during the off season. The only restrooms were vault toilets, but they were acceptable. They were a long distance from the campsite though. As others stated, there was a lot of train traffic, but we like trains so it was no problem. It is in a beautiful setting, and close to a great little pizza place. - rainman0
Jul 2013 - $18.00
We were not impressed. Trains were about 20 minutes apart with horns blasting day and night! This was right on the other side of the lake, some of the tent sites were mere feet from the tracks. Good luck sleeping. The bathrooms were nasty and had mold on the wall around the flush button. They smelled terrible. We ended up buying cans of air freshener to spray in there every time we went in. Plus it cost a quarter for each three minutes of showering. The $5 per night vehicle fee was not an issue for us as we had a annual sticker. We will not be returning. - tmretz

Campsites are paved and have 30 amp service, no water. Some sites are harder to back into than others due to tight curves. Park office was closed when we arrived, but Ranger found us and informed us that, in addition to daily fee of $18 (plus $7 online admin fee), we needed to pay $5 daily usage fee. Restrooms were dingy, with dirty floors and mold growing on wall where water dripped from flusher. Based on that, we chose not to even check out the showers. Camp hosts not engaging. With such high camp fees, we were really disappointed with services and maintenance. There are many more places in the Omaha area - we would not stay here again. - mocrazylove

This campground is easy on/off I-29. Do not take the first turn for the state park off of IA-2. Instead take the second turn at the advice of the ranger. I would not call this state park big rig friendly. There are only one or two sites for a big rig and low hanging trees are an issue. This state park is suffering from a lack of funding and staff and it shows. It seems that the staff spent the majority of the summer correcting a water issue and during that time there was no water available even in the bathhouse. The water is now back in service. The roads in the campground are very narrow and there is a section where a downed tree took out part of the road. We asked and were granted permission to trim some trees so we could exit safely. We did not use the bathhouse or dump station. Verizon cell was marginal and sporadic, Our ATT mifi card would also not work. The ranger was friendly and helpful trying to make our stay a pleasant one. There are several truck stops and a couple of restaurants located right across the state line in Nebraska near I-29 but beware as they only sell bio diesel. Because this state park is not big rig friendly, we would not stay here again. - roadking

We used Waubonsie as an overnight stop. We did not have reservations but the park ranger was very helpful in helping us locate a suitable spot for our motorhome. The campground presents a pretty little park setting and we enjoyed walking around with our dogs. Arriving here was at the end of a long drive and meeting the friendly park ranger really provided a lift. We would stay again if ever passing through the area. - relaxzin
