Another great COE park...... There is a loop with full hookup back in sites. Most sites seem to have some shade. Water pressure was good, 50 amp electric. They have walk up sites. Lots of room between sites. No problem with big rigs in this park. If you are tent campers this has to be one of the best C/G for you. They have some full hookups & some electric and water only for $4 less. This lake is very heavily used by both boaters having fun and fishing folks. We were on site #95 and turns out to be the best site in this c/g we think. We camped at Methodist Cove COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

This park is just outside of Alma, NE......... 2.5 miles from town. Fully stocked Grocery Store in Alma carries just about a little of everything. Subway at main intersection 1/2 mile from town. The Station Bar & Grill actually have "Flame Broiled" burgers and they are fantastic. You can see the grill they cook them on outside. Approx 1 mile from the park going to town is Firewood 4 sale at a great price $10 per rack l& arge log splitter in yard.

The usual Corps of Engineers tidy and well-run campground! Spacious graveled sites, well-located power stand and water source with good pressure. (Site was a little uneven, but within reason). Didn't use toilets or shower. We use CoE campgrounds whenever possible and have never been disappointed! That said, CoE doesn't usually spend a lot on signs, so it will take some map skills to find this site. We camped at Methodist Cove COE in a Motorhome.

This is a great COE park. There is a loop with full hookup back in sites. All have some shade some have lots of it. Water pressure was good, 50 amp electric was good even on a hot weekend with a full campground. Most sites can be reserved five days in advance. They have about 14 walk up sites that are first come first serve. We were in a walk up site. All are back in with lots of room between sites. Sites are granite gravel, low dust and level. The loop roads are paved. No problem getting a big rig around and into the site. The camp hosts have been coming here for a long time and were great. The lake is very low due to the drought and the boat ramp is closed and you can not access the water from the campground. We camped at Methodist Cove COE in a Motorhome.

Stayed there 2 nights. Beautiful campground, level sites, shade trees, plenty of room and friendly staff. Convenient to trips to Kearney Archway, Willa Cather childhood home and Minden Pioneer Village. We would definitely stay there again. We used our golden age pass for this great rate. We camped at Methodist Cove COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We really liked this campground. One loop has full hookups -- unusual for public campgrounds. The downside is that less than half are nonreservable. We came in on a Sunday afternoon & had our choice of 5, but found one that worked great. There are lots of big trees in the campground, but we managed to get our rooftop satellite aimed over the top of a smaller one. The sites are huge, and back up to a common area. The camphosts are wonderful people; they've been working at this park for 14 years. We paid for a week, but had to leave 3 days early due to a death in the family. We were given a voucher for those 3 days, that's good for a year. We would definitely return. We camped at Methodist Cove COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground with lots of shade & space between the. sites. We made our reservations on short notice so we missed out on one of the FHU sites but the showers were clean. Great paved trail into the charming little town of Alma. We visited on Saturday & were happy to see a Farmers Market with fresh vegetables, eggs, baked goods etc... The town had everything we needed including a coffee shop! We truly hope to be able to visit Alma again & would absolutely stay at Methodist Cove COE.

Rate is based on national senior pass. Highest rate we've seen at a COE park. FHU is $24 without discount, but still a bargain. Park is actually in Alma NE, about 6 miles from Republican City. They have a nice visitor center at the Corp office in Republican City; a short drive over from Methodist Cove. Lake was low, but most campsites have good view. Power was steady, but water pressure was rather low. One loop (84-116) is FHU; others vary between primitive, and electric or water only. Camp hosts were friendly, didn’t see any other park staff, but local sheriff drove through occasionally. Sites are well spaced, plenty of room and most appear fairly level. Fire pits are not cleaned between campers; we had to shovel ours out just to use it. No Wi-Fi here, but our Verizon card worked fine on 3G. Grass was very high when we arrived, but was cut the day before we left. Most sites have wooden picnic tables that are showing some age. They have a boat launch and a playground. Park was quiet. We would visit here again We camped at Methodist Cove COE in a Motorhome.

Park recently upgraded 33 sites to 20/30/50 amp FHU. Beautifully maintained area, lake view with less then a minute walk to lake from our site (#100). Paved roads with gravel sites. Sites have fire rings and picnic tables. Treed so had to use portable auto satellite receiver. Excellent Verizon phone and air card service. Our GPS took us out Hwy 136, just use W. South Street out of Alma. 9 hole municipal golf course in Alma. We camped at Methodist Cove COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Located on Harlan County Lake, just a few miles east of Alma, Nebraska. Another great COE Campground with 30amp electricity at each site. With our 62+ Pass, our cost was $8.00. Huge sites with lots of room between each site. Well kept campground. We camped midweek and it was very quiet, only about 15% occupied. Will definitely stay here again!!!

This is a beautiful Corps of Engineers campground. There are plenty of trees, large, level sites and friendly camp hosts. There has been such a drought for the past 6 years that the lake is down by 20 feet but the campground is still a great place to stay. If you are camping with children, there is a very nice playground and lots of room for them to run, ride bikes, etc. We camped at Methodist Cove COE in a Motorhome.
