5 RV Parks near Crawford, Nebraska
Jul 2017 - $20.00
There was so much history to see in Fort Robinson. The park as a whole was really pretty, although our site was a little...it could use some work. I don't necessarily blame the camp ground, but it was very awkward. The ant hills made the ground very uneven, which was hard to walk on, and our fire ring was behind our camper, which was very inconvenient. It felt as if we would be using our neighbor's fire ring if we were to use it. I give the park a very good rating because of all the attractions and the hospitality. - joshnichols84

Very nice park. The only issue we had was how to check in for our space. It's confusing for a newcomer. Fortunately we stopped at the office/cafe/lodge to ask & discovered that is where you check in for the campground. We stayed in the Red Cloud campground with full hookups. Our space was spacious & level. If you don't want full hookups the Soldiers Creek campground had a lot more mature trees for shade. We enjoyed the museum & looking at the fort buildings. We would stay here again. - HS R.

. Fort Robinson State Park is WONDERFUL! With DW's patient guidance, I managed to back our 32' Class C with attached 22' car-hauler trailer into our assigned slot. What an absolutely beautiful campground. Our site was level, and spacious. If we had some leeway in our schedule, we would have stayed another day or two to tour the original and recreated buildings from Fort Richardson. - Panthercity

A beautiful well kept state park in hilly terrain with mowed green grass between sites with paved road and sites, some level, others needing leveling. Lots of trees and beautiful views. One small play ground, a dump, one nice bath house with flush toilets and hot showers plus several pit toilets. Scenic drive through the hills. Just off the highway so a little road noise. Price was $8/day state entrance fee plus $20 camp fee. - 210jem

This is a beautiful and scenic state park with great facilities. We camped here just one night on our way across the country. We travel with two big dogs and there were trails and open spaces for them to run around. The spaces were of good size and easily accessible. Most sites are not pull through and have only electricity but this didn't bother us. The camp manager was very friendly and helpful. It would be great for a longer stay as there is lots to do with tennis courts, horse back riding, and scenic trails. I highly recommend! - NormSenn

We made a poor choice in thinking this would be a convenient, inexpensive overnight stopping point. Cost includes a $7 transaction fee (to make a reservation) and $5 collected at the gate for a Nebraska State Park Entry Permit that was not mentioned when we made the reservation (checking back, we found that it is disclosed in the reservation paperwork that was emailed). If we had wanted to take the car into town to shop, we would have had to buy a permit for it also. The site had 30A electric only, some sites have water available. Site #5 was difficult to park in due to site post on opposite side of road. The reservation clerk on the phone has no clue about which sites may or may not work for a big rig. Verizon cell phone service is nonexistent without a trucker's antenna; then it is marginal. With luck and careful antenna aiming, we were able to receive PBS on TV. This might be a pretty park to take the family for a stay in the country, but we would not use it again. - 2005-Fulltimers

My disclaimer is that I retired from the Forest Service and have a fondness for FS campgrounds. That considered, I liked the Red Cloud campground, because 1) it is a good place for tent campers and folks with small trailers, popups, etc. 2) it is not a good place for four thousand pound monsters with smelly sewage hookups. You can see my prejudice.
Mostly it was very pretty, quiet, and cheap. I have a Golden age pass, or senior discount pass as it is now called. That reduced the cost to $2.50. There would have to be major things wrong with a campground to complain at that cost.
I needed a place for an overnight stay, and this was perfect. If you have anything over 25 feet, other places are probably better. But if you tent, or have a small rig and don't need hookups, this is a wonderful place to camp. There was a large RV camped there, but probably at the only site that could handle a rig of that size. You will also need to be skilled at backing your rig for some of the sites.
For $2.50 or $5.00 (if you have to pay full price) there is nearly nothing to complain about. That said, I did not use the toilet. But my experience is that the FS campground toilets are generally clean and odor free unless horribly overused. I plan on staying here again as I make this trip on a yearly basis. Happy camping! - Corno1

A primitive National Forest campground. Well shaded, quiet and clean. Not big rig friendly though. Just off of hwy 385, 10 miles south of Chadron, just a couple of minutes to Chadron State Park. Excellent for an overnight stay on your way to, or from the Black Hills. - ken22

The spaces are rather close to each other but are well shaded. The park is dusty due to a well traveled gravel road next to the park. However, the park is well maintained, the owner and staff are friendly and helpful. The sewer hookup is somewhat awkward but the guide to your spot ensured you were able to connect. - Chalkie

This was a quick overnight stop when we were traveling. Management was very helpful. While this is an older park, and a little rough, it was clean and the hookups were convenient. There are not many options in the area and this place was as good as any. Do shake down anything you put outside. This is sand hill country & there are lots of ants. - 2retreads

Ok for an overnight. Great location for us. Easy on/off the Highway. Good signage, very friendly office staff. Sewer hookup was recessed pretty deep so an overnight hookup was not possible and awkward to dump in the morning. Very quiet road noise, shady, gravel pad. Excellent wifi but no cable. Would stay again if it was just an overnight. - TXTread

We stayed here while passing through and found the campground to be resonable for the fee. The campground was clean and the site seem reasonable level. Easy access and close to downtown, quite and peaceful for a true country feel. Nice place to stay in Nebraska's "Top Town". - dthall2
