Nicely kept park with 41 sites, all but 14 of which are gravel pull throughs. Unhitching the car is not necessary. There is a small playground for children and a laundry. Not much else. Right next to the highway with numerous gas stations nearby, including TA, it is ideal for an overnight stop. In addition, there is a Walmart across the street. There are also a lot of restaurants in this tourist trap of a town.

Being next to the highway does come with traffic noise. Also, there is a busy train track nearby. The noise didn't bother us inside the motorhome though.

The sites share a common power and water island and are very close together. It's not a place where you would want to spend a lot of time. It is very convenient for an overnight stop.

The owner is very nice, and there is a free DVD movie library.

We would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped at Sleepy Sunflower RV Park (formerly Open Corral Campground) in a Motorhome.

Just across the bridges, to the right, is what may be the grandest small town tourist trap of all time. Well, second to Wall Drug Store. Overall, I thought the place dull.

We stayed at Sunflower overnight on a trip west. It was conveniently situated just off I-80. That entire area of the state of Nebraska had been ground zero for massive storms in the days prior to our arrival, so limbs and some debris were still being removed. The owner/host who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. He explained where we would go in the event of a storm. He showed us to our site which, like all the others, was a gravel pull-through. It was long enough for our 45' rig plus our towed Nissan Xterra. We spent a comfortable night, the sound from the highway was noticeable, if you were outside, or maybe if you had windows open. It is July, we had air conditioning and did not hear a thing. There was plenty of space to walk our dog, even though they did not have a designated "dog park". The campground does have several teepees which have queen beds and other accessories. Very cute! We will stay there again and can recommend it. Walk-Mart just a stones-throw away, if you need your Wal-Mart fix. We camped at Sleepy Sunflower RV Park (formerly Open Corral Campground) in a Motorhome.

We stayed a week at Sleepy Sunflower so that we could travel the Oregon Trail and visit historic sites along the way. The park owners are very nice hardworking people who live on site. SSRVP is a small park with gravel roads and sites, however our 45' motorhome fit just fine. Sites are level and close together. They don't allow much room between for lawn chairs. With that being said, the owners did not place anyone next to us, our site was a buddy site so very close quarters, 1 night only we had a neighbor. It was very tight with two big motorhomes. Most of the parks guests were in overnighters. The park itself sits right off I-80, so easy on off access, and right next to a TA truck stop. The road noise got to be bothersome. Additionally, there are trains running through the area and some of the conductors took great pride in blowing their horns and waking people at all hours, 4 AM seemed to be a favorite. These last comments are given strictly for information as there is nothing the owners and do about road or train noise.

Over all we like the park and the owners and will stay again when we pass through the area. We camped at Sleepy Sunflower RV Park (formerly Open Corral Campground) in a Motorhome.

Don't miss Ogallala's Petrified Wood Museum, it is amazing! Harvey, a Korean War Vet and one of the artists was on site the day we visited what a wonderful guy is. (Harvey and his twin brother are the petrified wood artists and gave their art and the museum to the city of Ogallala.) Harvey spent lots of time explaining the process of working with petrified wood, showing us different types wood, etc.

Best burgers ever at the Open Range Grill, Ogallala!

We stayed one night while passing through and it was a nice little park and a bargain at $17 which is the PA rate. It was clean and the owners were friendly. The sites are close together but it was fine for overnight. There is a small, grassy dog park at the back of park which was adequate and clean. Wifi worked fine for us. We would stay here again.

The park owners were super, we had an awful storm which blew a camper's tent off it's site and the host helped them to retrieve it and got it put away until the storm passed. They are certainly here to serve. The park has nice pull throughs (our site was gravel and open) with easy access and everything was well maintained. We camped at Sleepy Sunflower RV Park (formerly Open Corral Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

We pulled in late. We had called earlier and advised owner of our ETA. She had a packet of info and site assignment for us in an envelope taped to the door. Park was not busy. Water was still shut off for the winter but all we wanted was electric hookup and a place to sleep. When we left the next morning, we could see the park was very clean and nicely cared for. If park is very full, it could be tight for big rigs to move around. Park was easy to get to from I-80. Truck traffic could be heard by morning.

Owner met us right away at self registration and directed us to a site to fit our double tow 70' unit. We saw about 1/2 of the sites were as long and accommodating. All we saw were side be side sharing utilities but quite roomy, so no slide or awning issues I could see.

Interesting, they have a rate structure that is very reasonable to larger than 18' units. Very good wifi free from several antennas. Maintenance, safety, access, utilities, facilities were well kept. Train & highway traffic noise noticeable, but not an issue. We camped at Sleepy Sunflower RV Park (formerly Open Corral Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

The new owners are bending over backward to make this a nice place to stay. Lots of fresh paint and new gravel make this a good along the way stop. Passport America makes it one of the best values you can find. I would stop here again. I might even consider this a destination some time just because the people are so friendly.

Watch out for the drainage ditch at the entrance it will rock and roll your rig if you don't approach it straight on. We camped at Sleepy Sunflower RV Park (formerly Open Corral Campground) in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects Passport America discount. We stopped here for a few days after two overnighters. The owners are very nice. This campground is right next to the highway so there is some road noise but not enough to bother us. The site was big enough to fit our 36' Class C and our SUV toad. Sites are gravel, and ours was perfectly level. Restrooms/showers and laundry were clean, and the laundry is the cheapest we've seen in our 2+ years on the road. They have a very nice "parlor" with books, puzzles, videos,etc. We liked this campground and would definitely stop here again.

Tips for other Campers:

Kenfield Petrified Wood Gallery at 418 E. 1st Street is a must see. Boot Hill (W. 10th St. & Parkhill Dr.) is interesting. A water tower painted like a UFO with an alien peeking out is around the corner from the campground. And the Little Church of Keystone is worth the ride, but you have to call Barbara (308-726-2006) or Kathy (308-726-2482) if you want to go inside.

What a great campground. The new owners are really taking care of the place. The staff were exceedingly helpful. They guide you to your site even though the place is small. The WiFi was the strongest we've had all year. The sites are gravel and there isn't a lot of shade. The interstate is nearby so there is some noise. Nice lending library. Nice laundry. The place is well maintained and beautiful (although not wooded at all). We camped at Sleepy Sunflower RV Park (formerly Open Corral Campground) in a Motorhome.

This park has received many improvements by the new owners in the past 3 years.

Excellent stopover in western Nebraska. Some noise from the highway and trains but we did not find it objectionally loud.

We will stay here again when in the area. We camped at Sleepy Sunflower RV Park (formerly Open Corral Campground) in a Tent Trailer.
