This is a nice park and a good value. It was very clean and the site spacing is good. I had a back in site and there was plenty of room for our MH and toad. We camped at Walnut Creek Lake & Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Walnut Creek Lake & Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Walk the pedestrian bridge that marks the Omaha/Nebraska border; a great photo op. Also an NPS building there. Ameristar buffet is outstanding, we visit Ameristar buffets all over the country.

First come, first served park. Easy to get in and out of. Campground hosts were wonderful and patient as we looked around for which spot we wanted. We picked site 11, which had 50 amp service and the water spigot was close enough with an extra hose to fill fresh water tank. The dump has no fresh water available and is at a steep angle so your tanks, depending on where they are, may not empty completely. Our site was not quite level, but close. Spacing between units was good. Verizon cell service was excellent and no problem setting up DirecTV. We camped at Walnut Creek Lake & Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a gem of a park. Think it is a city community sponsored. All the sites are concrete with paved patios and a picnic table. There are small trees on each site, but not big enough to shade the sites. There are very few pull-throughs (mostly back-ins), and mostly 30 amp (not sure how many 50 amp, but we stayed here twice and didn't get one.) There are hydrants scattered throughout the campground to fill if you needed to. Some were very close to the sites, which is what we had the first camp. No reservations, but we called the day before and asked to have a site "saved" for us at a certain time, and they accommodated us both times. There is a swim beach, and we saw kids playing with their labs there. We would definitely come back, unless it was late summer and too warm to cool our coach on one A/C unit. For the money, this is an excellent stay for only a few nights. We camped at Walnut Creek Lake & Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

This is a great campground near Omaha run by the City of Papillion. Our site #6 backed up to a small pond with lots of birds and wildlife. Pads are concrete and level with a concrete patio, picnic table and grill. Roads in the park are paved. Some sites are 50 amp, some 30 amp. Water and sewer are not available at the sites. There are three water spigots in the park to fill your tanks. There is no Wi-Fi. There is a very nice paved 5K walking/bike riding trail in the park. This park would have gotten a 10 rating if they had full hookups and Wi-Fi. We will definitely camp here again when we are in the area. We camped at Walnut Creek Lake & Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Broke in our new camper here. Not many out this early in the season but enough for some good company around a new campfire. Nice park and well maintained but we did pick the one portion where the water was not working. CH said they were aware of the problem and was working to correct it but still the one black mark I could find in a great break in outing. We camped at Walnut Creek Lake & Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
