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. We camped at Mormon Island State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Mormon Island State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice park with a beautiful little campground. The sites are large enough to maneuver easily and there is plenty of space between you and your neighbor. It's far enough away from the Interstate that highway noise is not a big issue. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Mormon Island State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This was great for an overnight stay -- handy to town, fuel and the interstate. Site was level. Dump station was handy, and so was the potable water access. No sewer or water at the sites, electric only. Clean park, scenic lake with quite a few people using it for fishing. Swimming was also permitted in designated area. Would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped at Mormon Island State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park, just off interstate, but still relatively quiet. Spacious sites with shade. Very relaxing after a long day of travel. Good for a couple of days stop over. Not much to see around location, but nice for a respite. We camped at Mormon Island State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

What a great campground, huge sites and lots of grass. Had a great stay right off the freeway. Can't believe anyone would pay to stay in a private campground when this is so close with such a great price. We camped at Mormon Island State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice place: I was here on a warm autumn weekend, and it was almost full. There is no pool, although swimming is allowed in the [man-made] lake during the summer. Showers and restroom were very clean. Trees provide plenty of shade. We camped at Mormon Island State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice small park. We really liked it. Nice sites, nice picnic tables and fire-rings. We did not have a lake site but we could easily see the lake from our picnic table. Really liked this small park. We camped at Mormon Island State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Close to Interstate. We had made online reservation for a pull through site hoping to not have to disconnect the truck from the camper. However, what is advertised as a pull through is really a parallel parking site. We didn't feel comfortable with our slide outs sticking out into the street and asked for a different site. The host said that other people didn't have problems with their slide outs and was not helpful. When we insisted on another site, the hosts made us feel as if we were stupid and a nuisance. The campground is nice and very heavily used. Just believe the state should not show parallel parking as a "pull through" sites and give their hosts some customer service training.

The camping fee is $18. There is a $5 entry fee unless you have an annual sticker. We had a 50 amp pull through site. We have stayed here several times during the past 10 years. There is no cable TV but on the air reception was good. There is good Verizon reception. We camped at Mormon Island State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Great CG. Extra charge for vehicle is irritating. We were only people there and had to stay extra night due to spring wind/freezing rain/snow/rain storm. We camped at Mormon Island State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Nightly rate was $17 plus $4 for our truck. Very pretty spot, lake view, lots of tress, easy on and off the freeway, quiet, level sites, plenty of space around. The showers/laundry basic but clean, electric only, no Wi-Fi, open all year. We would stay here again. We camped at Mormon Island State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Paved interior roads and sites. Easy for any size rig. All back-ins except a few that are "pull over to the right curb and park" sites, which then have the electric pedestal on the passenger side of the RV. Most sites are 30 amp. Since the park was almost empty in early April, we got a 50 amp site with a view of the water out our windshield. Central dump and water fill. Very large mature trees and acres of grass. Very pleasant camp host. Campsites were $12 plus a $4 daily park pass. Rates apparently vary seasonally. Room for many picnickers in the area outside the campground itself. We will stay there again if we pass through that area again. We camped at Mormon Island State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

This is a nice state campground that is well maintained. We only used it for one night as a travel stop. Sites are not very long and roads are narrow. We could not get into the first assigned site as there were campers in the "pull thru" site across the road. The staff was very helpful in getting a site that would work without having to unhook the tow vehicle. Was able to get some local TV stations for news and our site was satellite friendly. I-80 noise not too bad. We already had an entrance pass so the rate was the basic price. We camped at Mormon Island State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.
