$20 nightly fee includes day use fee.....Water was still turned off in park so I stayed in the riverfront section of the park (pit toilet), basically a large field (riverbank) with picnic tables and fire rings. (the $20 charge for an overnight without flush toilets/showers reflects my feelings about the "value") Very quiet location, no one anywhere in the camp. Sites were not clearly marked, I think each had electricity. Multiple water spigots in campground (didn't use, they may have still been turned off too?). If I'm ever back in the neighborhood in a warmer month, I may consider the other campground at this park....... We camped at Ponca State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring everything you'll need, not much in Ponca.....Nearest city is Sioux City, Iowa about 40 miles away....

What a treasure! Beautiful, well maintained electric/water only sites in a forested area……in Nebraska!? This park was so enjoyable to stay in! Make sure to stop in the visitor's center. Kids will love the museum displays that talk about the natural area & history. Convenient dump station on the way out. Lots of hiking and outdoors activities including programs for kids. Whether you're just passing through or want to stay a while, Keep up the good work, NE! We camped at Ponca State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This Nebraska State Park is located next to the Missouri River near Ponca, Nebraska. All entries to the park require a $4 daily permit or a $20 annual permit. There are three camping areas and most (92) have electrical including the natural area right next to the river. This area also has a pit toilet. Turkey Ridge campground is first come, first serve and Oak Bluff campground accepts reservations and have newly installed water spigots and a toilet/shower facility. There is a dump station near this campground. There are also cabins available. We camped at Ponca State Park in a Tent Trailer.

You have to pay an entry of $4 per vehicle per night to get into the park then $17 per night for the camping. We had to pay $8 to get both vehicles into the park then one night's camping. We only stayed one night but we definitely would come back again because there is a whole lot to do there. The park has beautiful trees and paved pads for most rigs. You must fill your water tank at one of the faucets nearby. They were adding more water faucets to the park and plan to have a faucet for each two sites I believe. There is a dump station that looked OK. We got a peek of the DirecTV sattellite through the trees so everyone was happy. Has a wonderful interpretive center that we didn't have time to get to. We camped at Ponca State Park in a Motorhome.
