We arrived late and someone was in our space. Space was paved. Mostly level. Private and very wooded. We could hear the interstate from our lot. We had to leave early in the morning so we didn't get to take advantage of the activities the park offered. Looked like lots of fun. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in Lakeside Campground Loop, which didn't have any shower houses nearby. Overall, the campground was nice. The value for the campground itself was great at $22 a night, but recognize that you do pay a daily fee for being in a Nebraska state park (we paid the $45 for a monthly pass since we would be in NE for 10 days). There was a nice marina on the grounds, and it looked like a nice frisbee golf course. For the two nights we stayed, we were very satisfied. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful park with very roomy sites. Some have no utilities, most have electric. None had water or sewer that we could see. Each has a picnic table and fire ring. A dump station and water are at the entrance. RV and tents are interspersed. It appeared most RV sites were back-ins. Hard surface pads - ours was mostly level. The Lakeside Campground area has two sections but only one bath house. Women's had three toilet stalls, two sinks and two shower stalls. Our site #129 was exquisitely located near the lake but a long walk to the bath house. We did not tour the Creekside campground so cannot report on bath facilities there. We spotted blue heron, Canada geese families, wild turkeys and deer. We stayed overnight on a cross-country trip but this is a park where you could spend more time. The park offers a variety of activities for adults and children. It also offers internet but our devices were never able to connect. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Motorhome.

Rate of $30 which also includes a $8 entrance fee for an out of state pass into the park. This is a huge state park south of Omaha, NEB. There are two RV, tent campgrounds located near the marina for a total of 149 surfaced pads all equipped with electric and four with full hookups. Showers are in both campgrounds ( Lakeside and Little Creek). Only Little Creek has a laundry room. Our site in the Lakeside loop was located looking out over a pond and marina. It was very nice. The park itself has horseback riding, boat rentals, miniature golf, disc golf, two water slides, wave pool, kids water playground, driving range, tennis and basketball courts, softball fields, crafts, fishing, picnicking, hiking, a theatre and waterway. There is an Inn on the property and at the Marina a camp store with snacks and sandwiches and ice cream. There is a lot of construction going on in this park when we stayed here in April. Reservations are accepted for some sites. Many of the sites don't seem to be level since both campgrounds are located on hills. Our site was very level. There are trees to give you shade and some privacy. This was an easy off from Interstate 80 on our trip west. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Beautiful lodge. Walking trails and other things to do. Good spacing on paved sites. Pretty good WiFi coverage. Would definitely stay here again. Good 4g AT&T coverage. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed for two nights. This park is our favorite when visiting family in the Omaha area. Lots of activities, sites are nice, mostly shaded, RR are clean. Good value. Don't visit on a Husker football weekend. CG is full by Thurs. without reservations. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We stayed at Mahoney for a few days. The site was mostly level and there was plenty of grassy space between sites. The entire campground was very shady with established trees. The restrooms and showers were clean. We had electric, but no water or sewer. There was a dump station conveniently located on the way to the campground. There are lots of fun activities for the family, swimming, putt putt, horseback rides, paddle boats, fishing, hiking, and more. We will definitely stay here again. Great destination spot. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Motorhome.

Big rig warning: I do not recommend using ReserveAmerica until you have talked to the park office. The park is a series of very steep hills. With fairly narrow blacktop roads. Backing up a hill steep enough to sled on with little room to maneuver could be a challenge for a large fifth wheel or a gas motor home. There are a number of sites at the bottom of the hills that are great, but there is no real way of knowing on ReserveAmerica and Google maps does really show you how steep the roads are. The office can tell you what you are in for. There are some sites that do have water and sewer, but they don't seem to be available on the ReserveAmerica web site. The ReserveAmerica fee does NOT include the state park fee of $5 a day per car or truck (or a max of $25 per vehicle). Other than that nice park. Friendly staff, large spaces between campsites We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fantastic place with indoor ice skating, horseback riding stables, golf course, mini golf, and stocked ponds. You'd think Donald Trump owned it, with a lodge and restaurant to die for. We would stay there again in a hot second. The little town of Ashland was worth visiting also. Would recommend this place to everyone. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground; however, unless you are a NE Husker fan, don't plan to stay here on game day. We arrived on a game day, Saturday, didn't realize there was a football game that day. The campground was packed, seemed like each site had an additional 2 or 3 vehicles in addition to the tow vehicle. Hard to get through the campground. There was plenty of parking near the campground but I guess folks were not willing to walk a short distance. The campground was empty the following night (we stayed 2 nights). Electric only was $20/night. Don't miss the melodrama at the theater, the SAC museum, all very good. Sites were level, restrooms/showers good, lots of activities and miles of open space. A great place to visit. Only negative (other than football Saturday) is that it is close to I=80 so there is lots of traffic noise. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park, but no water anywhere except the dump station. Watch the prices. Whatever price they quote you, the actual price will be $5-$10 per day more. They charge $5 per day additional for each vehicle (including the camping vehicle). They never mention this until you actually show up to claim the reservation. Everything in the park is extra charge (i.e. pool, boats, shows, golf, etc). Good Verizon data & voice. Good air TV. I will not return to a NE state park due to their excessive extra charges. There are plenty of cheaper local and city parks available in NE. The price quoted includes camping fee, reservation fee, daily MH fee, and daily toad fee. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Motorhome.

One might expect that reserving and paying for a campsite included the ability to access that site without paying even more. Such is not the case, however, in Nebraska state parks. When we reserved a spot on line (add a $7 reservation fee plus 2 sales taxes), there was no mention of the additional daily $4 fee per vehicle. In fact, when we arrived and checked in, no one mentioned the fee and we did not know about it until coming back into the park in our car. We did not inquire about having to pay yet another $4 a day for the motorhome. Our $26 a night electric only site was just about the lowest spot in the campground, so our site was all mud after a thunderstorm. There are plenty of actives in the park and the park is very popular. The Strategic Air & Space Museum is right next door and worth the price of admission. We will not be returning to this or any other Nebraska state park as long as costs are not clearly stated up front. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a large and busy campground. It is quite close to I-80 and you can hear the highway from the Creekside Campground. Our site was very muddy, unfortunately right where our steps lowered. Cell-phone service was good. We camped here during a big thunderstorm outbreak, so can't really comment of the condition of the park. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Travel Trailer.

CG was in good shape. The roads are in good shape, but a few areas are a bit tight for a 36' MH with tow vehicle. We were here for a special event, and will stay here again for a close weekend stay. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Motorhome.

We have been to this park many times in the past and always enjoy our time here. The sites are hard-surfaced and spacious. The price is right, and there are many things to do in the park, especially in the summer. But, I am noticing that more and more things are becoming run-down and in need of repair. The fire grate on our site was broken, and we had a difficult time trying to grill with it. Our site was level, but it needs to have some gravel or be re-seeded as in a rain storm, would have been a total mud pit. The staff at the park can sometimes get crabby, but otherwise a nice gem between Lincoln and Omaha, right off the Interstate. You WILL hear interstate traffic and train noise which is why I did not give it a 10. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Travel Trailer.
