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. We camped at Hall County Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Hall County Park in a Tent Trailer.

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. We camped at Hall County Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Get to know the hosts so they'll save you a site.

Price $20 plus $5 non-Nebraska daily state park entry fee for $25. Asphalt roads and sites, sites almost level with 30 amp electricity at my back-in site. Other sites side of the road pull throughs. immaculate kept lush grass between widely spaced sites withh many large-medium sized trees. A play ground, dump and potable water fill. A lake on one side and a section of the Platte river flowing by on the back side. Has fire rings and tables. One central bathhouse with toilets, sinks and showers. A really nice CG. Only deficiency is the variable not quite level sites helped by various leveling methods. We camped at Hall County Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is small but well maintained. The interior roads are on asphalt and are a bit narrow. All of the sites are on concrete. Water is available just before you enter the campground. The dump station is located as you exit the campground. The electrical box contained 20/30/50 amp outlets and was located in the appropriate spot. The electrical voltage was a bit low, hovering around 119. Almost all of the sites could handle a large rig. There were a few “pull-outs”. The sites were relatively flat. There is a bathroom with 2 showers per gender near the dump station. They were old, tired looking but clean. We chose not to use them because they were definitely not appealing. Verizon air card was a little slow but the cell phone worked well. This campground did not have Wi-Fi or cable. The maintenance crew doubled as the host as needed. The gates to this park are closed after 8 P.M. You would need to get a key ($10 deposit) from the maintenance crew. This campground is about 2 miles from the Stuhr museum and there is a bike path starting from the campground. There is a railroad spur next to the campground. This spur is used to supply coal to the power plant every 10 days or so. The campground was very quiet at night. We would definitely come back here if we were in the area. Our rig is 32' long. We camped at Hall County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a county park located in an urban area. We had some difficulty finding this place due to the sign being down off the main road. The RV sites are located at the back of the park with tent sites in a separate location. You pick a site, park, and then go register. Electric is the only utility available but there is a dump station. I did not see a water fill. This is a heavily treed park but they have been trimmed and pose no danger to RV sides and roof. We were able to use our roof satellite and there are also sites with shade. Did not use bathhouse so I cannot comment on it. Staff was friendly and helpful. Verjzon cell and MiFi worked well. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Hall County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

As advertised. no sewer or water, just electric. but this is a great little park! Find your site then go back to office/shop with 3 nice guys that check you in. Locked gates at 8:30 open at 7. Safe with clean older showers/restrooms. Trees, grass, large play area for kids and lots and lots of wild turkeys walking around. Grounds and sites, with table, bbq, kept up great. We would stay here again. We camped at Hall County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful public RV Park, very nicely maintained grass and concrete parking pads. The dump station if easily accessed on the way out of the RV parking area. The only negative is that water is only available at the entrance to the RV area or at the dump station. Very good shade if you want and about a third of the sites have satellite view, if you need it. Verizon has 3-4 bars so good Internet access through Verizon. We camped at Hall County Park in a Motorhome.

This public park is nicely maintained and thoughtfully laid out with many trees and with nice spacing between sites. Concrete pads are angled off of paved interior roads. Electric is the only utility offered though potable water and a dump station are available in the park. Some sites are satellite friendly. Wi-Fi is not available; phone and broadband are available but out-of-network for AT&T users. The adjacent train tracks appear little used and the only noise was distant whistles. We would stay here again. We camped at Hall County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

7 because no water or sewer. Very nice park. Restrooms and showers old but good. Site was level with concrete pads. No leveling required. Site access is on a one way loop and paved. No Internet. Park well off the road, so it was quiet. Park is well maintained. Workers are around all day. We camped at Hall County Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice grass and trees campground in a corner of the George Clayton, Hall County Park. RV sites are electric only, 50A is available, with separate power boxes for each site. There is a dump station, and a separate water station. There are only 19 RV sites, and when we arrived there was only 1 vacant. There are also a number of tent sites, many of which could be used by RVs for dry camping in an emergency. County staff is onsite during the day, and gates are locked at night. If you think you might be returning after the gates are locked, a gate card is available for a deposit. I believe that exit can be accomplished anytime, but I did not attempt it, (I didn’t have a gate card to get back in). There are a number of RV sites that have a clear shot to the south, so you can get satellite TV. There are also sites “in the trees” if that is your thing. Two or three sites are ridiculously long, but slightly sloped toward the back, and may not be suitable for a large motor home. The rest of the sites are adequate. Most are back-in. Two or three are parallel to the road and could probably qualify as pull-through sites. There is plenty of space between most sites. There are restrooms with two showers each at the edge of the RV Park, near the dump station. Another, identical restroom building is located at the ball field, just a short distance from the RV Park. Restrooms and showers were quite old, but well maintained and very clean. The shower enclosures are double, with a dressing area, and the shower, but they are on the small side, with no place to sit and 2 or 3 clothes hooks. If you have a small plastic folding chair or stool, you might want to bring it along to the shower. I used the showers every day that we were there. Basic Verizon phones worked well, and 4Glte was available on my Verizon modem. Don’t worry about the raised-grade heavy duty single railroad track that runs right behind the RV section of the park. The railroad is a spur that serves the generating facility about a mile or so south of the park. It would probably be interesting to be in the park when a mile long coal train shows up, but that probably doesn’t happen very often. There is a paved urban hiking trail that passes through the edge of the RV Park, in case you need to stretch your legs. I think the trail would qualify as handicap accessible. The adjacent Stuhr museum was interesting, mostly from an architectural point of view. The displays were well done, but we were disappointed by the low number of actual artifacts. The outside exhibits were closed for the season early, so we could only walk around them and guess what might be inside. The published address won’t get you there, and leaves you in the middle of a busy intersection without knowing which way to turn. We would stay here again. We camped at Hall County Park in a Motorhome.

Would have rated higher if had water hookup. Sites: Cement pads, grass sites with picnic table, shade trees, spacious. Hook Ups: 50amp only. Dump station in park. Bathrooms dated, but clean. Verizon internet: OK, somewhat slow, but worked consistently. Sprint internet: Good connection, but very slow. Verizon phone: 5 bars. AT&T phone: 4 bars. Book exchange: None. Beautiful park. The RV section is literally on a loop at the end of the park. If you get a site on the inside of the loop, you have no one behind you. Lots of turkeys walking around the park, rabbits and squirrels. There is a paved walk/bike path within walking distance of the park. It is about 6 miles long, but no shade. Lots of areas to walk throughout the park. We have been finding a tick or 2 (dog ticks, not deer ticks) on all of us per day. We camped at Hall County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park was pleasant. We are visiting family in Columbus, there are no decent parks, there but this park was very nice. Everything worked as it should. We camped at Hall County Park in a Motorhome.

I agree with others comments. I add: The entry is on a one lane paved road with overhanging tree limbs. It looks like you are entering a forest but alas the pads are on the north end of the park. I was told that there are plans to remove some of the trees and overhanging limbs. I arrived on a Sunday morning and the place was almost full. By later Sunday the park was almost empty. Lots of weekend campers. I will stay again when in the area. We camped at Hall County Park in a Motorhome.
