6 Parks near Chapman, Nebraska
Apr 2012 - $15.00
This is a very nice family park. There are a lot of things to do from fishing, swimming with a sandy beach to lay out on, hiking and playgrounds for the kids. There are also horse trails to ride on too. This park has lots of water to choose from as well. There are 7 ponds to fish in and the ponds are so clear you can see the bottom! The park is located between the wood river and Platte river. We as a family floated the Platte river in the past and the kids loved it! There is also a tornado shelter here and sirens to notify the park visitors and campers, which is a plus in my book since its in Nebraska and you never know what the weather will do. The park also sells ice, pop and snacks and worms for fishing. Nice little park for the area! - staceyw

The campground is on the far northeast of the State Fairgrounds. It is fenced, and gates are opened during events. It's about a half mile walk to the livestock buildings. The campground is basically a gravel lot with one-lane asphalt streets, 40' poured concrete pads on narrow sites. Parking a 40' motorhome would be very difficult for me if there weren't an empty space next to me or across the street. Our neighbor's awning was less than 4" from our slide out. With slides out on the MH, there was not enough room to park a car on the site. Bathrooms/showers are new and clean and double as a storm shelter. There is Wi-Fi in the park, but it was not turned on the week we were there. The weeds needed mowing or spraying and were 6-18" tall on our site. For a State Fairground, it's pretty nice. Too bad they crammed everything so close together and don't tend to the weeds. Trains roll through town about every 20 minutes day and night, horns blaring. There is an outdoor waterpark a half mile away. - 42lena

We stayed for 2 nights in this absolutley lovely park. We will return if ever in the area. Large spacious lots, mature trees, walking trail, fitness stations, wild turkeys and other wildlife, all contributed to a very nice stay. Restrooms were acceptable. 3 stalls and 2 shower stalls with curtain. I didn't use, my husband said they were fine. No alcohol is allowed (outdoors, I guess, maybe just a guidleine to prevent excessive) so there were no parties going on. It was very quiet. You really feel like you are miles from a city, but everything is very close. - Jo and Bob

This 19-site campground is located within a county park, which has access to many playgrounds, a walking/biking trail, ball fields, and outdoor exercise equipment. This is a beautiful park with lots of shade trees. The campground is located away from the park, so there is no noise.
My eight-year-old daughter loved this park. - AspenTrailmama

Nice park that was mostly full with folks that had been there before. One review earlier made mention of "first come first serve" sites being held by the campground host for friends. I have no problem with someone paying for a site in advance and arriving late. One site blocked off on the night of our visit was still vacant in the morning. Was this site paid for?
This camping area is located at the very back of very nice municipal park and the signage to find the camping area is almost non existent. The road, though paved, resembles a hiking or cycling path and I was concerned as to whether I should be driving a vehicle on it.
Once the camping area is located the sites are spacious and well laid out with 50 amp electric and no water at the site. There is a water fill station immediately as you enter the camping area. - Peter in Arizona

Lovely, treed, very level, and easy to navigate. It was quite homey, despite its size. Great children's play area, pool, and dog walk which made it ideal for families. Also had nice tent areas and cabins. People very friendly and welcoming, including other visitors. Would have stayed here longer if we'd had the time, though for a non-family older couple, it was more expensive than we normally like. - Martin and Beth

Shaded, level sites. Wifi was the worst we've ever had at a KOA. It took 20 minutes to download a 250 MB picture from email. Laundry: $2 per load to wash, $1 per 25 minutes to dry. Most loads took 2 drying cycles. - Ms Winnie

Gravel roads and sites that are spacious. Sites are pull through. Neighbors are close but not on top of you. Water, electric, and sewer are fine. The cable and Wifi are extremely good. There are fire pits in a common area near the pool. Limited shade to perimeter sites, center mostly sun. Nice pool and playground. Good dog walking area. The grounds are well groomed and the staff is great. Kind of campground you feel good about staying a couple of days. - Alabama Jim

Price includes $5/daily entry permit but not the $7 reservation fee. Entry permit is $25/year. OK campground. Sites are mostly level and wide, but tend to be short. Roads are decent for a big rig and it was easy to back in. No water or sewer hookups, and you block the road when filling up at the water spigot. The biggest drawback is its location at the intersection of an interstate and highway. Most of the time the road noise isn't bad, but for some reason trucks frequently need to hit their jake brakes and the sound really carries. Otherwise it's a decent campground and I'd give it a higher rating if they had FHUs. - Keeping up with the Joneses

Stopped here overnight on our drive back from Ohio to Colorado and got the very last available site. It was by the road, so we didn't feel comfortable putting out our driver side slides for fear someone would drive by, not see them and either hit them or hurt themselves on it it. But the location was very pleasant and relaxing, with lakes to walk around. We didn't use the facilities as we had them on board. It was totally fine as an overnight. We would return, but would want a different spot so we could comfortably open all our slides. - RVLove.com

Traveling across country and needed an overnight spot. The park is very easy to find from I-80, you can see the freeway traffic from the campground but you don't hear it. The campground has the Platte River on one side and Mormon Lake on the other, choose your site then self register at the entrance. The gravel sites have 30 & 20 amp electricity only. Fresh water fill and dump station have easy access. - Charlie M.

Gem of a place. Small campground, but the owner is trying hard and was very friendly and cooperative. Did not have a fenced pet area, but there was plenty of space to let the dogs run without worry. - Lots Labs

Very nice little park. Have both 30 and 50 amp service. Formaly was a KOA campground. No pool, but there is a lake and free paddle boats. Also have horseshoes, small playground for the kids, handful of benches around the park. Lots of room for dogs to get out and run around. The office/general store has just about anything you would need, in case you forget something. Owners are very nice people, take much pride in their campground. Give you a couple baked goods when checking in, and then take you to your spot and help you park. We would stay again. - SprintingAcrossAmerica

This park is located about half a mile north of I-80, and is quiet. Campgrounds are clean and grass cut. However, this part of Nebraska is flat, and all the sites are level with grade, leaving them muddy and soft when it rains. It had rained the previous day of our arrival, and if we'd had to level, jack pads would have been required to prevent the jacks from sinking. A few inches of crushed stone/gravel could solve this problem by elevating each parking site by a few inches. To the parks' credit, they have a creative storm shelter in this tornado prone area. It is a 53' steel cargo container buried to within a few inches of the top with added top vents. Should certainly do the job of keeping campground residents safe in the event of a storm. The park WiFi also worked continuously during our stay even though the park was full that evening. Proves once again that it can be done if the park really wants to provide good WiFi. We'd certainly use this for an overnight stop if we should pass this way again. - Johnson's
