CASH only at this Omaha City run CG. Tough call on rating this place. It was a dust bowl the day we arrived. Our toad had a layer of dust so thick we could not see out of the windows. I had to dump a bucket of water on the windshield before unhooking it. That was just from the drive in and locating a site. Lots of fast moving traffic within the CG keeps it dusty. After an afternoon of rain, things got much better. Sites are either RV sites or tent sites. The RV sites have red topped number posts, the white topped posts are tent sites. Sites vary from level to very sloped, the closer to the water the more level they are. These water sites come with plenty of geese droppings included. The site we had was filthy and the grass around it was long overdue for mowing. That was true of most of the sites. I also checked the men's bathhouse and it was pretty disgusting. Glad we did not need to use them. Being a FCFS CG, people start coming in during the week to pick their site. We came in on a Thursday afternoon and lots of sites had trailers on them that had been left earlier in the day. 30 amp electric was good for our four day stay. Water is available on the way in at the dump station and in various locations within the CG loops. The price and location here add to the value. The locals seem happy with things as they are. It is a nice cheap CG close to the city. But they really do need someone here to keep an eye on things. There is no excuse for people to come in and leaving the sites in such a mess. Hundreds of cigarette butt's littered the ground, beer bottle caps, etc. But the place works ok for a pit stop along I-80 in the Omaha area. We camped at Glenn Cunningham Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Best bet for a cold one and good Pub Grub is at the Saint's Pub & Patio. I-680 exit 5, West on Fort St to South on 120th. It is right there in the first plaza on the left. They have the NFL package and a nice layout for watching games.

Campground is still a great place to stop in the Omaha area. Problems with water noted in an earlier review had been resolved by the time we stayed here. Sites were clean and well-maintained. Sites on the lake are most popular, but all of the sites are large and have shade. Will stay here again when we come back to Omaha. Park accepts the Federal Government's Senior Pass, so rate is half off, if you have one. We camped at Glenn Cunningham Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Glenn Cunningham Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Glenn Cunningham Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Glenn Cunningham Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Some good things here and some not so good. We had to search on the internet to find a phone number to call and have someone clean the fire pit. The bathrooms and shower were not filthy, but not that clean. They have beautiful spacious camp sites and we stayed in one with a full view of the lake. There are many grassy easily accessible fishing areas great for old and young. They also had a rough path around the lake for walking. There is no mention on their signs that they do accept Golden Pass for half price stays. The rate we show is full price. We camped at Glenn Cunningham Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

We only stayed one night. The campground is dusty and there seemed to be no camp host, but it's very shady and has water spigots throughout the campground. Several sites right on the lake. Lake is large and seems nice. We camped at Glenn Cunningham Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

A busy park which has good views. It needs some work on the roads and trees. The dump station was overflowing when we arrived but was pumped out later in the week. We camped at Glenn Cunningham Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground our rate was with Golden Age Passport. Was quiet for the most part, but needs to have a resident campground host/manger. We missed the campground and had to turn around and go back as there is not a good sign at the bottom of the hill telling you that you are here. Otherwise, very easy to get to and we will be back if ever this way again. We camped at Glenn Cunningham Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Deserves higher rating, except for the management of the campground. This is a first come first served, no reservations campground. There are many signs around saying the sites must be occupied. Unfortunately we backed into a site that someone thought he could put a tag on the post and not occupy it. After setting up, and then registering we found his tag, that he had put in there in the morning and did not occupy it. We camped at Glenn Cunningham Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Large lake area located five miles from downtown. There is boating, hiking, and bicycling on asphalt trails, and horseback riding. It is first come basis with a 7 day limit. The RV sites are gravel with electric hook-up only. Water and dump station is located near the entrance. The sites are spacious with lots of trees and grass. Picnic table and fire ring at every site. Everything was great except the bathrooms were dirty and garbage bin was stacked full. When you arrive you need to choose your spot and go to kiosk to pay the fee. Our cost reflects ½ price for senior discount. I would return. We camped at Glenn Cunningham Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park. Close to all Omaha activities. Water hook-ups not available on all sites, but close enough to easily fill your holding tank. Strong 30 amp service. BIG NOTE: I found out too late, but this is a COE park. Your senior pass will get you down to $7.50 per night. We will definitely be staying here again whenever we visit Omaha.

This was a very nice campground with friendly staff. The restrooms were very clean. There is lots to do in the local area, so we did not have to drive far to eat dinner. If we are up this way again, then we will stay here again. We camped at Glenn Cunningham Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Took a while to get to, because the address given on the website does not get you to the campsite. Got here very late, but self-pay and self-locate worked very well. When we woke up, we could not get over the lovely small lake and marina that we found ourselves next to. We would stay here again. Directions: Take 72nd St exit off I-680; head north on 72nd St; make left onto Rainwood Rd (heading west); after about 3/4 mile, enter campground on left (south) side through gate onto dirt road. We camped at Glenn Cunningham Lake Campground in a Motorhome.
