Nice park: Flat, level gravel pull through site that was just long enough so I did not have to unhook my truck from my trailer. Site had wooden deck with a nice wooden picnic table. There was also a BBQ and fire pit on the site. Spots are close together, we were led to our spot by a KOA staff member which made maneuvering into the site very easy. It feels if you are in the country, but you can definitely hear the freeway. The swimming pool was clean and pleasant. We ordered a pizza from the office, that was delivered to our site. The pizza was excellent and the price was reasonable. The campground is full of mature trees. - travelcouple

Quiet and out in the country. Sites are a little close together; meaning your neighbors' dump hose runs 2 feet from your picnic table. There was one issue where a visitor parked his car in the entry lane, and campground staff went to great lengths to track down the owner and get the car moved. Park has a nice playground for the kids with one of those inflatable bounce pillows. Camp store is well stocked. There is a breakfast buffet, but we needed to be on the road early and didn't look into this. Dinner & snacks are available at the camp store, there is some delivery options that will bring it right to your site. Some fast food options and a Pilot/Flying J at the nearest I-80 exit. Walmart is about a mile east on I-80. Very isolated, and very quiet. We were there for one night, most of the others seem to be spending a week there for vacation. It is Nebraska, and can be windy at times. - charles_from812

We stayed one night at this KOA, arriving after dark. The park entrance is very poorly lit and somewhat deceptive. The driveway is not at the KOA sign, you have to go past the sign and find the driveway entrance in the dark with oncoming traffic that is going 60 mph. The entrance involves a sharp, almost U-turn into the driveway and back-tracking to the office.
You can pull up to either side of the office building to check in...it's easier to get into the interior with roads if you pull up on the right side, especially with a larger vehicle.
This is an older campground, the interior roads are very narrow and the sites are very close and unlevel. There are concrete or wood patios/decks at many sites. You are really on top of your neighbors. There is little or no lighting on the roads or signs -- check the campground map very carefully before trying to find your site.
The campground has a nice pet walk area. Hookups worked fine and television reception was good.
Several other reviewers have mentioned the muddy conditions after rainfall. In dry weather, this campground is extremely dusty. - expdek570

Stayed for two nights. This park is our favorite when visiting family in the Omaha area. Lots of activities, sites are nice, mostly shaded, RR are clean. Good value. Don't visit on a Husker football weekend. CG is full by Thurs. without reservations. - Dennis D

We stayed at Mahoney for a few days. The site was mostly level and there was plenty of grassy space between sites. The entire campground was very shady with established trees. The restrooms and showers were clean. We had electric, but no water or sewer. There was a dump station conveniently located on the way to the campground. There are lots of fun activities for the family, swimming, putt putt, horseback rides, paddle boats, fishing, hiking, and more. We will definitely stay here again. Great destination spot. - idahogirl

Big rig warning: I do not recommend using ReserveAmerica until you have talked to the park office. The park is a series of very steep hills. With fairly narrow blacktop roads. Backing up a hill steep enough to sled on with little room to maneuver could be a challenge for a large fifth wheel or a gas motor home. There are a number of sites at the bottom of the hills that are great, but there is no real way of knowing on ReserveAmerica and Google maps does really show you how steep the roads are. The office can tell you what you are in for. There are some sites that do have water and sewer, but they don't seem to be available on the ReserveAmerica web site. The ReserveAmerica fee does NOT include the state park fee of $5 a day per car or truck (or a max of $25 per vehicle). Other than that nice park. Friendly staff, large spaces between campsites - Tom & Marilyn

Great state park. Had reservations and it was a good thing, it was booked up. Visiting friends and family, park is convenient to Omaha. We had a handy cap stop which was really nice. All sites in this park are back in. Had a little trouble getting the satellite going, alot of trees, but managed. Really nice place, lots of little lakes to fish in, and a nice swimming beach. Will definitely stay here again when in the area. - Travelin Jenkins

We booked a spot in advance, online, that had water and electric hookups. We were in #037. We were not far from the dump station, so it wasn't too much trouble to use it when we needed. We stayed 4 days, 3 nights.
Since we were visiting friends that were staying in Omaha, we drove into the town frequently. It was about 25 minutes drive. We did not check out any other part of the park. It was very pretty. The spots were kept level and had plenty - plenty - of space between each one.
When we arrived and checked in, the girl told us that the day before they were having problems with the dump station. She didn't know if it had been fixed and suggested that the next closest one to use was in either Fremont or Yutan. Having come a long way, we were a bit discouraged, but we decided to check out our spot first.
In the hopes that maybe the girl was wrong, my husband decided to make sure the information we were given was correct. Turns out, there was no problem with the dump station at all. We were delighted! I would definitely stay here again. - Christina O

Strange park but beautiful area, right on the river. We pulled in late on a Friday night, never have we pulled into a state park to be greeted by 3 park rangers. Out of concern we asked if we should be concerned about anything and the kind ranger said no, they're just there to keep the peace. One ranger had his truck parked in the way of the entrance and didn't move his truck so we could pull through, we had to maneuver through the exit. We found the area we had reserved, the Cottonwood. It's just one big loop. You don't back into sites, you park right there on the road! It was tight pulling our 5th wheel through the area. Luckly we had reserved a spot on the LEFT side of the road othewise we would not have been able to open our slides! Our door opened to the road. The park was packed and there was music playing well past midnight. The bath house was AWFUL! The showers were creepy. Doesn't look like they have ever been updated. We were here for a sporting event and had to be up at 5:30am and didn't get back until late in the evenings so we were unable to explore the park. I don't know if we'd come back here in the future. I prefer to support our state parks but something just wasn't right about this one. Our state is making cut backs and closing some of our parks early this fall, when you see 3 rangers working late in the evening at 1 park it makes you wonder what kind of people the area attracts. - Mom2Two

We love camping at this clean, tranquil park. The views are serene, and the hiking/biking trails are excellent. - Luv-2_rv

Beautiful park and lake. Slabs are 50 ft long for RV's and tents. It was Memorial Day weekend, and we luckily got one of the last spots. When you arrive, register with the camp host, they take cash or check only. No showers. Grass and small trees to separate the sites, but there are no low lying branches to scrape against. The park is in a nice/newer area of town with shopping. Gates close at 10 pm so hopefully you don't have any plans to go out to dinner or see a movie while you're in Omaha. - cherrytree

Beautiful sites near a lake with a 3.1 mi paved walking trail. Awesome big off leash fenced dog park where they can swim in the lake (opposite the walking trail.! Stayed for 2 nights, but could have stayed longer happily. Very nicely landscaped with nice paved loops & sites. Very quiet at night, nice people! - chasing60

We stayed here during the off season. The only restrooms were vault toilets, but they were acceptable. They were a long distance from the campsite though. As others stated, there was a lot of train traffic, but we like trains so it was no problem. It is in a beautiful setting, and close to a great little pizza place. - rainman0

We were not impressed. Trains were about 20 minutes apart with horns blasting day and night! This was right on the other side of the lake, some of the tent sites were mere feet from the tracks. Good luck sleeping. The bathrooms were nasty and had mold on the wall around the flush button. They smelled terrible. We ended up buying cans of air freshener to spray in there every time we went in. Plus it cost a quarter for each three minutes of showering. The $5 per night vehicle fee was not an issue for us as we had a annual sticker. We will not be returning. - tmretz

Campsites are paved and have 30 amp service, no water. Some sites are harder to back into than others due to tight curves. Park office was closed when we arrived, but Ranger found us and informed us that, in addition to daily fee of $18 (plus $7 online admin fee), we needed to pay $5 daily usage fee. Restrooms were dingy, with dirty floors and mold growing on wall where water dripped from flusher. Based on that, we chose not to even check out the showers. Camp hosts not engaging. With such high camp fees, we were really disappointed with services and maintenance. There are many more places in the Omaha area - we would not stay here again. - mocrazylove

Lots of drama with the employees fighting getting drunk and yelling right in front of us and everyone else. We will never step foot in this campground again. If you like smelling and watching kids smoke pot, drink alcohol this place is for you. The place is set up for tents mostly and about 10 spots for RVs; there is no WiFi, shower or bathrooms, just portables. The campground was at least kept clean. - Mississippifam

This is primarily a weekend, tent camping location. On many weekends they have entertainment. The weekend we were there it was very quiet. We were one of six RVs. 30 amp power was fine, and shared water supply worked. A hole in the ground provided dump for grey water. To dump black water you had to arrange a removal service which required $10 fee. The owner, a very nice guy, is still learning about RVers. If you are looking for services, facilities, WiFi, etc this is not for you. We choose it because of location, and it was fine for three nights. - Ncw

Stayed here because only park with availability that night. Not suited to big rigs really. And not easy to get to. We had to go on to another city because we had difficulty getting to this park and then didn't find it could really accommodate our motorhome and tow car. Several tenters were here so maybe more suited to the "camping" crowd. - whipsnapcracker

Called about reservations and were told no problem. We arrived and were met by a courteous and friendly staff. It was interesting to note that they have a full bar and dining area!
We were not impressed with the entry road as it is full of pot holes and a speed bump which really isn't needed. Other than that, the sites are level, decently spaced with good power and water, and sewer. - Mooney 201 Pilot

This is an older park that is clean but it looks tired. We did have a problem with the breaker for the 50 amps. They did replace it but a little grumpy about it trying to say it was me and too much stuff on. Problem is I have a management system to stop that and I had no problems after they replaced it, nor at any parks before or since.
The single computer on the wifi is a first. Not sure the thinking but just an aggravation.
I would stay again. - peddy dick

Stayed at this park for three nights in a 38 ft fifth wheel on a level gravel full service pull through. The park is extremely well cared for and clean. The area they fall down is on their client skills. The young man that checked us in was very condescending and made us feel that it was a bother to check us in. Also you will only get free wifi for one device here and when we asked how much for a second device the young man said we would find out when we tried to sign in a second device. This is good for a one night stop over as it is close to the interstate. - Irish2

Beautiful spot but they need a campground host with a rake and a garbage bag. Spots had garbage floating about and the fire rings were clogged. Our site was littered with cigarette butts. Too bad as the view is nice and most spots are shaded, just no one there to keep an eye on things. NO water while we were here as well, (had tested positive for coli). Only pota potties. - AdrianaW

Cunningham Lake is a surprisingly quiet park on the far north side of Omaha. We stayed here during the College World Series and were amazed at how peaceful it was. All the sites are large and several of them are pull-through. One great surprise - which isn’t posted anywhere in the park – is that the City of Omaha, which runs the campground, honors the Golden Age/Senior Pass discount you get in the Federal Parks. Just put your pass number on the pay envelope and pay the discounted fee. This is a cash only park, so make sure you have correct change to put in your pay envelope. We will definitely camp here again. Our rate reflects our Senior Pass discount. - Bobbi1948

No frills Army Corps campground. Lots of rules, including no RV camping on non-electric (tent) sites and vice versa. But we were in a self-contained Class B and didn't need power that night, so took the spot anyway. Very old bathrooms kept moderately clean. Easy access during our visit to Omaha, with big strip malls/grocery store just a few miles down the road. However the campground seems to attract non-recreational users too. Saw several men camping with their roofing work trucks (maybe a storm recently hit?) and people obviously living out of their cars. One couple got in a fight with another long term resident and called police. - RVNed

This city park sits on the banks of the Missouri River. The sites are large, level, have a concrete pad, picnic table and lots of grass. All are back-in. There are walking/biking trails adjacent to the park. Reservations are easily made on-line. 50 amps is available on a very limited number of sites. There is water but no sewer. The dump station if convenient and clean. - Freedom Bus

I only rated service as very good because we booked on the internet and had no contact with anyone. No need for service. It is a very nice park located on the Missouri River. Big sites, some with shade. We would go out of our way to stay here again. - Beas

I would have given this park a ten if they had sewer and an easier way to make a reservation. I tried 3 times on computer and twice on kiosk at trailer, all failed. Tried one more time from PC after I found a site and it finally worked. The host, who helps people all the time, even has trouble. If you are going to have a camp host use him, not some gimmick reservation programs that sometimes works. I was towing a race trailer with car inside and had difficulty finding a place to park it so I could use it for my car, it's a 66 Mustang so I don't leave it out overnight. But all is well. - utahhusker

We stopped here for one night while passing through. Do some geographical research before you come here. The FamCamp is not on the base. It is located just east of the runway outside the fence at what they call the "base lakes" area. Getting to it requires a lot of street running through Belleview. The MWR office is beside the campground. Staff was friendly. There is a snack bar and pool here. The campground pads are densely packed. Since this is off base non-military people can use it as a guest of a sponsor. We met some of them. - Tidy Boy

Spent one night on our way across country and was surprised when we pulled in and discovered all the water spigots open. They decided to turn the water off and didn't tell us when we made reservations a month earlier. Luckily we had a full fresh water tank. One of our neighbors told us about the bathrooms in the boathouse building and gave us the combination to get in. We never saw a camp host, but there was someone at the boathouse, when we went in the next morning, who directed us to the tank-fill spigot in between spaces 3 & 4 next to the horse shoe pits. Sites had nice concrete pads with gravel approach and departures and had plenty of room around them for slides, awnings, and such. WiFi was good, with no password required and had 2 or 3 bars depending on which antenna you used. Showers were inserts into older stalls, so they were very small for my 6' plus frame. Bathrooms were dated, but very clean with plenty of hot water and good pressure. We stayed here to visit the SAC Air & Space Museum, (which is about an hour away past Gretna), so we didn't use any other amenities. Aircraft and trains were heard but never disturbed us - your sensitivity may vary. We'll stay here again, but hopefully the water will still be on! - NavyStore

I cannot really add much more to the previous reviewer (Next Mission). This is a terrific campground, with paved and level sites, a beautiful fishing lake, and great customer service. WiFi was good for us, and we noticed at least four hotspots. We will definitely camp here again. - CO2RV
