Pros: Restroom was OK. RV pads and surrounding green space are a good size, with plenty of trees and lots of grass. Good electrical hook-up. Water fill easy to get to on the way in. Some services a few miles away in Pierce, but Norfolk is only 10 miles away. Park was quiet even when quite full. Supervisors very friendly. Cons: Signage and map provided were confusing. Plan on driving around to find out where your site is. Showers are coin-operated. RV dump not working in park, and sign said to dump in Pierce but did not give location. We asked a park supervisor and were directed to a dump site behind the county jail. Lake not usable due to algae, but the park was probably quieter because of no boaters, so this was a plus for us. We paid $28 a night for both camping fee and daily state park pass. We camped at Willow Creek State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

We did not stay there for two reasons: A - The lake water is still on a Blue/Green Algae warning. This means our dog should not swim there.
B - The total fee (day pass plus camping) would have been 25$. We already had the day pass, but we were only wanting a flat place forthe night. Those are the two reasons for this report. We camped at Willow Creek State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely, wonderful park in a crappy little town. The water was closed due to algae, but the camping is wonderful. Showers are OK, clean enough, not the best. Very big campsites with lots of room. Birds, cardinals!, everywhere. One cardinal was pecking in our car mirror at himself, over and over. We would stay here again. We camped at Willow Creek State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

This campground is a Game & Parks managed recreation area on a 700 acre NRD lake with nice camping spots. Electric only in most spots and water spigots in selected areas. Dump station some distance from camping area. Not unlike other campgrounds in Nebraska on a lake (because of limited number of lakes in Nebraska) this campground gets a lot of use and pressure. This facility also gets heavy use typical of most campgrounds in Eastern Nebraska because of population. Quiet hours are not enforced, so after 10 PM it is sometimes noisy into the night. Notwithstanding this heavy usage it is well maintained. Unfortunately, it is crowded during weekends and peak times. Fishing is good, however there are times when the lake looks like a freeway with all the boats and the lake is almost too small for the large speedboats that roar around the lake. If you are in a small boat prepare to be rocked and during peak times prepare for boats being nearly side by side. The restroom/shower facilities are generally clean. A park vehicle permit is required to enter and camping site costs continue to increase annually - currently $14. All in all this is a nice area during non-peak, non-holiday times and during weekdays when it is not so crowded. We camped at Willow Creek State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.
