The owner was very funny and friendly on the phone when I made a reservation for the 2017 solar eclipse (Lake McConaughy, Ogalalla, and North Platte were all completely booked). His mother was very helpful and welcoming when I checked in. The two spots with dedicated fire pits were taken, but because I requested one on the phone, The owners, brought us a new portable fire pit to our site, where they had set up a picnic table and chairs. We left for North Platte for the day and when we got back they had brought us a huge pile of wood to burn!!! They all called us by our names while we were there. They brought out freshly baked cookies for us that night. Then, later, they came back with some frozen elk meat to send us home with!!! In the morning they brought out freshly baked cinnamon rolls for the entire camp!! I normally hate camping so close the interstate, and honestly I'll never really have a reason to ever stay in Big Springs again... But the McGreer Family is amazing!!!!!! Extremely friendly! Incredible service! Their hospitality and graciousness toward my family has ensured that we will DEFINITELY be going out of our way to stay here again!! - David Bragg

This is a delightful small family-run campground, very convenient to I-80. There is some slight traffic noise, but we slept thru it. Sites are grass, level, FHU and the wifi is great! Owners could not be nicer, brought our mail to our door, even. There is a small rec room open to everyone. Laundry has one each W/D, very clean. We will definitely stay here again. They honor Passport America for one night. Our cost is based on 2 nights. - SusanRon

This is one of my favorite campgrounds .Small super friendly people. This time our fridge was on the fritz and we needed ice so the lady brought us ice from her fridge ! If they have extra and you are not leaving early you receive farm fresh eggs. Sites are level, grass, easy hookups . Have my own hotspot so I did not use wi-fi . - Wildfire

We weren't expecting much out of the Pony Express and RV Park in Julesburg Colorado, we were just looking for a park less than 200 miles from Aurora Colorado on the way to Lincoln Nebraska for a short stop. Like we said we weren't expecting much and the park delivered what we expected. Our GPS devices brought us right to the park although we had trouble finding it on one of them. Since it was right across the street from the Colorado Welcome Center we input that location. When we got there there was no discernible office so we called and was told to pick a site, the 50a sites are at one end of the row. The owner of the park runs the Welcome Center so we got settled and went there and paid for 2 nights. Everything is gravel except for the grass that you have to drive on to get into the pull-thrus. The hookups were convenient and we had a great line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. We think that since we were so close to the Colorado Welcome Center and to I-76 we had real good Verizon 4g and cellphone reception. This a no frills park with no wifi so we were glad for the good Verizon coverage. The park and the area is probably best for a short stay. - Bob & Jo

Stayed 1 night. Grass and dirt lots. Fairly level. Place was locked when we got in about 5:20 pm. Manager waved us over and told us to park where we wanted, she would be back later. Cable doesn't work. Did get wifi code, when she came to collect the money for space. No trees, or facilities. Sure not worth the price. Don't think we will stay here again.
Nothing to do here. There is 1 road that is a semi circle. Manager/owner is nice and friendly. Lots of room for improvement. - Swcrafters

Stayed for one night passing through. That is about all you can do here. Easy access. Across street from Colorado welcome center. Interstate noise was minimal. Area is sparsely populated as mentioned in other reviews, so do not expect much. There is a store on site but it was never open during our stay. Upon our arrival (in the middle of the day) the office and store was locked and empty. The manager (nice guy) dropped by several hours later after we chose our own spot and said "That's how we do it around here! Just pick your own spot." Sites were dirt/grass and level. Hook-ups were fine. There are very few spaces at this campground and not all have 50 amp, so you are very limited on site selection. It's an open field with some hookups arrayed in a u-shaped pattern. There is no shade and on a Colorado summer day it became quite warm. Despite this, there was plenty of room and the kids had a great time with open fields and grass to run around in. WiFi was listed, but we were never given a code nor used it. There are no facilities to use. No pools or playgrounds. The welcome center across the street had 24-hour restroom access which I found easy enough to use. I felt it was a bit pricey for what you got here. But that being said, there was some attraction to being out in the middle of nowhere with hardly anyone around. I would stay again, my family probably would not. - mm1407

Nice small RV park with FHU but no restrooms. Great place for an overnight stay. Pros; all pull thru level grass sites, FHU, a row of large trees for some shade, good store and café ¼ mile away, good cell service. Great price. Owner held normal price during eclipse weekend. Cons; can hear hourly trains but slept ok. Pedestals set up for back to back parking, but owner requested all park in same direction so utilities on wrong side for half the sites, but pick you own site and not busy so can park in a site with pedestal on back, trees will block roof mounted sat signal, portable sat OK, no wifi or cable. No restrooms or showers and no tents. Restrooms in store. Not busy. No discounts, price already low. Would stay there again. - Pepper Dan

This is a small park attached to a small general store, restaurant, gas station. The campground is about a quarter mile or less on a dirt road away from the main building, so there is no noise from traffic using the other facilities. The sites are grassy pull throughs, with a row of trees shading the front of each site. There is a shared utility pole with electricity and water between every two sites. The sites were long enough that we did not have to disconnect the towed from our 36 foot.
The campground is located very close to a railroad track. There were frequent trains during the night.
I did not see a bath house in the campground and did not enquire about facilities at the store.
This is a great overnight stop for anyone traveling on route 26. - Merrymac

Wish I had my fishing gear. Nice place! They make a GREAT garbage pizza!
You might be careful of where your GPS takes you. Follow their signs and take your time. If we had been able we would have stayed longer!! - Homawy

Rate reflects Passport America. We initially wanted to stay two nights. However, there are two entry roads to the park which are 'unimproved' - actually they are a nightmare and don't dare try to enter or leave if it's been raining or else plan on calling roadside assistance to get out of there! The site we were given was entirely too small for our fifth wheel. In order to open our slides, we were jutting out in the roadway. We were next to the pool so all we could hear was the kids screaming and yelling. The site was littered with cigarette butts; someone had thrown rotting food on the ground, and there was metal trash on the ground at our site. Completely unhappy with this park. If we had known the roads were so bad, we would not have stayed. Leaving the park, we blew a tire - I've no doubt its a result of a piece of metal we didn't find that found our tire instead. We left after one night - couldn't leave fast enough! - ColesCruising

We made the mistake of reserving for 2 nights, we called just the night before our arrival. Upon arrival we looked at this very disappointing place and decided to stay only a single night. They said we'd be charged for both nights, although on the phone they'd told us that a No-Show is charged just 1 night. We decided to leave immediately to minimize our "penalty". We were told at sign-in (not on the phone) that there's a 30-day cancellation policy. There were only a few spots filled at the time. We left for several reasons, 1) Because it was a full mile away from the lake and if you drive there you must pay for a special pass, daily. We had been looking forward to relaxing on a lake for a couple of days! If you look at their web page they never show pictures of the actual campground. We should have been more skeptical. 2) The WiFi they advertise is available only on the porch or inside the office. 3) The advertised Cafe was closed. 4) The campsites were small dirt strips with no grass or shade, and all for the princely price of $34. The drive to get there was horrible. The last 2 miles is an extremely washboard-rough dirt road with sharp turns and steep hills. The route is very poorly marked; we had to turn around and backtrack to find their single sign. To get out, on a hot and very dry day, we had to use our 4-wheel drive! We tow a light 30' travel trailer. - B_and_C

It's the trains...it seemed every 20 minutes. They blow their horns 5 times going through town and you hear every one of them! Beautiful grassy sites, friendly owners: but those trains...0_0. - AdrianaW

What a beautiful RV park! The owners keep the place clean and mowed. There's a lovely little creek and bridge to cross it. Many trees including a young orchard that is home to many birds.
The campground is only about a block from town.
So the trains...yes there are trains...all day and all night and they are about 3 blocks away. They did wake me up but if we'd been running our AC I wouldn't have noticed them.
We had such a relaxing time here that we would not hesitate to return. - User3146

Bathrooms could have been cleaner, flat sites but nothing but gray fine sand. Decent little store, friendly staff, caters to fishing. Has permanent mobile homes on one side. Laundry facility was fine. Had a beach, several lakeside spots, some shade. Pay showers $1/5 mins. Worked for us for an overnight stay while on the road (making a point to stay overnight on lake along our route). Not a lot of full/sewer hooks ups. - Enjoying_Retirement

We prefer quiet but did not experience it here; however staff did rectify the party atmosphere after numerous complaints and guests leaving because of the loud music, etc. Very crowded with lake toys which makes the roads very narrow. Shade was good. Dirt spaces and close together. Minimal grass area for tenters. Lake is full and beautiful though for playing and fishing. - C Thomas

We were expecting a nice place from looking at the website photos of Van's. We were very, very disappointed. The photos were taken a number of years ago, and does not show what the campground is really like. Essentially, Van's is a big rv parking lot. Yuck. No vegetation or grass as shown in the old photos. Very little space between sites and the campground seems in very poor shape. There is ample space to park your boat with your camper, but that's about it. Due to the low water conditions for the past several years, their private boat ramp was closed and appeared to have been for some time. Their "restrooms" are simply porta-pottys here and there. The rate reflects non-holiday. If you plan to stay there during a summer holiday, 4th of July for example, the price is 4x to $120/night for 30A full hookups! Yikes! (No refunds!) Better off to stay elsewhere. Additionally, the long road from the highway is now loose rock. Watch your windshield. Will not be back. - colochoclab

We stayed here a week, and very much enjoyed everything about this park! The hosts were personable and very willing to help. Much thought went into them assigning our site, we got a very special site with generous afternoon shade because we were staying the week. Sites were fairly level, fine gravel surface with grass on either side. We were personally led to our site by one of the hosts on his golf cart. This was a popular site for big rigs as the pull throughs were very long and plenty of room between. The only reason I didn't rate this park a 10 is that there was a Fed Ex truck site right next to the park where trucks came and went all night and day, but they weren't extremely loud and I didn't hear them at night, it just ruined the country atmosphere a bit. The park is only a half mile off the interstate so easy off and on, and WalMart is only about 2 miles away! We were surrounded on 2 sides by miles of corn fields! The laundry had fairly new machines and only cost $1 to wash and $1.50 to dry, the dryers ran almost an hour! - overogal

Country View Campground is very convenient to I-80 and the town of Ogallala. The interior roads are gravel and wide enough for easy navigation. Our site was very long and easily held our 45' DP and Toad. The utilities worked well but the WiFi was limited. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We will return when in this area again. - Stealth01

Nice campground very convenient to shopping and the highway. We had a big site at the end, so very private. WIFI did not work at all for us but the other utilities were fine. Nice owners. - UllaPool

Beautiful campground, right on Lake McConaughy. The best part of the grounds was definintely the scenery. The roads getting to the campground were a little rough, and the check-in was a bit confusing; there wasn't an actual person to talk to. Since we had reserved online, we went to our space right away and saw that the campground host had already posted our site for us. There was plenty of space and our spot was only a couple of hundred feet from the water (walking distance with a toddler, a baby, and some chairs in hand). - joshnichols84

Stayed in full hookup site. Very nice campground. The lake is almost full and we always enjoy the sand beaches. - gwalter
Aug 2012 - $25.00
The lake was low so it was a longer walk to the beach, but during the week we had the place to ourselves. On Friday night it filled up with weekenders and they kept us up all night. No park rangers around, and the camp host certainly wasn't going to do anything about it. Nice campground with large sites, nice view overlooking the lake. Clean bathrooms and showers. We loved the place, and will come back again, just not on a weekend. - jimandlisa

This is one of the nicest RV Parks we have encountered in a long time. Owners are so nice. They escort you to your lot. Everything about the campground is super clean and nice. We hated to leave because we not only enjoyed the campground but the area. I give Sleepy Sunflower and excellent rating - please try it. I know you will love it. - biscuit

Sites 1 through 8 are full hookups with 50 amp. The rest of the sites are 30 or 50 amp boxes spread out around the campground. Half of the sites are on the reservation system the other half is first come. Had a problem finding a site where the power was working. Sites are pretty level, paved sites and interior road. Water spigots are spread out among the sites here and there. Verizon Aircard and cellphone had a signal and we had no problems getting our satellite in since the trees are small. There's a Safeway in Ogallala where you can load up otherwise you'll have to drive back into town. Electric sites are $17.00 a night and and they charge another $4.00 per vehicle per day so if you plan on staying 4 or more days buy their annual passes at the Visitor Center or at Martin's kiosk. (Annual pass for first vehicle is $20.00 and the 2nd vehicle is $10.00). For a daily pass it's $4.00 per vehicle per day. Campground Host can sell you the Daily Pass. We would probably stay here again if passing through. - jannie5
