2 Parks near Grand Island, Nebraska

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

Camped here on a hot July day in our MC pop up camper. We chose a very shady site and had a nice breeze so it wasn't unpleasant. No fire ring but did have a BBQ grill.
Camp host was helpful and our neighbors were very friendly. They lived in GI and just camped to get away. They brought us ice and frozen treats from home that evening. Don't get that anywhere but the mid-west!
Bathroom/showers were basic but satisfactory. - bipeflier

We had some difficulty finding the place, even though it is not far off the main road. What is not apparent is that you drive down a narrow one lane road through the day use area, then enter the camping area and it is again one way, but if you want to drive around a second time to look at sites you have to go all the way back to the entrance of the park and start over again. Web site clearly says it is a "no reservation, first come first served park. However when we arrived mid afternoon 4 or 5 sites had red cones in them stating they were occupied. Campground Host was not present at the time so we chose a site that had some shade and a nice grassy sitting area under the trees, and fortunately had 50 amps, since it was really hot. Several hours later a 5th Wheel pulled up at one of the "coned" sites and a fellow moved it aside for them. It become apparent, hearing him talk to the Host, that he had saved 4 desirable sites for his buddies who were arriving later. Somehow that just soured us to the place, even though it is a lovely well taken care of park. - housecar

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
