Great campground with lots to do in the Fort Robinson area. Don't miss the theater. Camped during the 4th of July; this campground is so well laid out and spacious that it did not seem crowded at all. Camped in Soldier Creek CG with electric only. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Theater, trail rides, chuckwagon breakfast, explore the history of the area.

Fort Robinson campground is a very good campground in NE Nebraska that caters to many different types of campers (full hook-up, electric only, tent camping, horse camping). The old cavalry post facilities provide both historic and numerous other activities (in the summer) for both young and old. Additional fee for state park entrance. We camped in an electrical site with a TT. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a wonderful state park. We liked it so much we extended our stay. Many historic buildings to tour and a natural history museum. Sites were generous; one campground has full hookups. Staff was friendly. Saw bison, prong horns and deer. Great place for hiking and trial riding. Lots of activities in the summer but we enjoyed the quiet in the fall. We would stay here again. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is actually $31 because they attach a daily access fee of $5 for each day you elect to stay. Red Cloud full hook-up power for the first two night spiked to 138 volts several times each night and my EMS disconnected us each time, until voltage returned to a normal range. The CG is clean and okay, nearest restroom and/or showers about 1/4 mile away in another section. Red Cloud is the only section with full hook-ups. Parking an RV at the park office to check in is a little dicey, on the street, not a parking lot. The Fort is historic and well maintained with wagon rides, plays and shows at Post Theatre, horse back rides and lots or room to walk, or ride bicycles. Knowing what to expect in Red Cloud we likely would return. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

$26 per night was for a full hookup site on a level asphalt pad in the Red Cloud campground. We purchased the annual park permit for $25 and a duplicate park permit for our tow vehicle for an additional $12.50, as we will be at least two weeks in NE State Parks. There was a picnic table with a pedestal BBQ unit on the site. What other reviewers had to say about the park is correct; so much to see and do in and around the park, especially if you’re staying in-season. If you like walking/hiking/biking there are trails and roadways inside and outside the park. The night sky is gorgeous as are the sunsets. The park was very quiet during a portion of our stay but I can imagine that during the summer months the noise level goes up. The campground is a 3-mile drive into town where there are a few restaurants and grocery stores. Cell phone service on AT&T is 4G but out-of-network. Verizon data coverage was 4G LTE so we used our Millenicom jetpack for Wi-Fi access in the park. There was no OTA TV that we could tune in. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped in the Soldier Creek loop, with electric only. With the big trees, we had trouble getting satellite reception. Staff was friendly and helpful. The next time we would stay in Red Cloud section. Fort Robinson itself was very interesting with lots to do and wonderful walking areas. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Motorhome.

Price reflects full hook up. This is a great place for families and kids. Park is clean, sites are level, plenty of activities to do. The only down side is really not over air TV to speak of. I would stay here again. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Interesting place to visit with a lot of history to offer. We camped with full hook-ups. There is not much around the Fort so the TV antenna only received 3 stations (PBS of course). Our Verizon air card worked well but the AT&T smart phones did not. The Fort has a lot to offer; history, horse back riding, tubing down the river and numerous of things to keep you busy. The sites are well maintained and had no issues with the facilities or staff. It is a little tricky to find the camp ground as it is not well marked. Worth a visit if you like historical areas. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Robinson State Park's campground offers shady, electrical hookup sites plus primitive sites. Conveniently located are modern restrooms, showers, water, dump station, picnic tables and a shelter. Fort Robinson offers a nice campground for the horse lovers. Put your horse up for the night in one of the newly remodeled horse barns. With many miles of trails to ride through the beautiful Pine Ridge, this makes a great place to camp and enjoy the outdoors. Fort Robinson campground offers group camping with equestrian facilities. The campground is open year round with electricity. Showers and water will be shut down during the winter months. Fort Robinson, west of Crawford, has it all -- with more than 22,000 acres of exquisite Pine Ridge scenery, compelling old west history, exceptional lodging, loads of fun-time activities, scenic camping and the park's own buffalo and longhorn herds. What a centrally located park in the USA that would be perfect for a huge family gathering! I have NEVER enjoyed a state park more. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a State Historic Site, with lots of activities available, including horseback riding, entertainment, stage coach rides, restaurant, museums and much more. It is a very difficult approach, as the RV parking is not well marked, and neither is the check in. Go to the main brick building just inside the main entrance for RV check in, then they will direct you to the campsites. We love the location and would highly recommend this park. The only thing I didn't like was having to buy a daily park use pass in addition to the RV fee, but this certainly isn't the only state that does this. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice place to stop for a few days with plenty on offer. Historic sites, an indoor pool which costs 5 dollars (which we didn't use), stagecoach rides and cookouts. Would recommend to anyone the jeep ride which went off-road up in to the buttes and was fantastic value at 10 dollars for an hour. Also wanted to try tubing but the river was too low. There is a restaurant and theatre on site also if you want it. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at the Red Cloud campground (full hookups) at Fort Robinson for 3 nights. We would have preferred Soldier Creek (electric only) because they have shade trees and the temperatures were in excess of 100 degrees during our visit, as it was in most of the eastern half the the United States. Both campgrounds are nice. The restrooms are dated but clean. We did not use the showers. Fort Robinson is a wonderful place to explore with lots of activities and lodging options. We will return at a time when the temperatures are more moderate. Don't miss the Fort Playhouse...excellent performance. All the staff were great. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful rustic state park campground. Very family friendly with a lot to do and see. Went horseback riding, biking, hiking, and swimming. They have a fun free rodeo on Thursday nights,and even have their own summer theater troupe! Very clean bathrooms and nice warm showers. Only one washing machine and dryer, but the city of Crawford is only 3 miles away with a coin laundromat. Loved it there and will definitely return. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have not stayed at many state parks, but Nebraska has done a wonderful job with designing excellent accommodations. Ft. Robinson (Red Cloud CG) has very spacious sites, asphalt paved roads and sites and they are easy to back into! The park itself is a treasure trove with two historical museums, riding stables, jeep tours, wagon and stagecoach rides, swimming pool and a restaurant. We stayed for six nights and never had to leave the park as there was always something we could do there. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful; the grounds were well maintained. For all this we were able to ignore the throngs of grasshoppers. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of our favorite parks. We have stayed here for several days over the past couple of years. We have always parked in the Red Cloud section which is open and dish friendly. Everything is well maintained and if you are a history buff, you will be in Hog Heaven. We will make this a yearly stop. No negatives on this campground. All roads and sites are paved.
