Simple city owned park. Most sites have a table and fire pit, wood is a one time payment of $5. Unlimited through out your stay. Quite a few longterm units on the backside of property. Handful of noisy barky dogs, couple of them are left outside all day. There is a dog park inside the park, as well as disc golf, a lake, and a playground. Wifi will not stream but we were able to work, surf the web and send emails. We camped at Riverside City Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Drive to the top of Sscottsbluf monument then stop by frontside bar and grill for dinner. They had a great menu and the bbq was delicious.

typical city/c.o.e park with big trees and roads planned out before big rigs. however, with care, big rigs can find space here. some sites are tight but we had adequate room. restroom antiquated but kept up daily. we stayed 3 nights and would stay here again.

This is a city-owned campground with dirt roads and tight pull-through dirt spots and nothing else - no laundry facility, rec room, pool. Not even an office. It's a chunk of land the city is making money off of and that's it. It looked like there used to be a zoo or something next door, but now it's just all run down with no animals. CONS: It's poorly marked - we overshot the entrance as there was no sign, then saw an office but it was empty; better signage is needed. Sites very tight - we had just 2' from our slide to neighbor's slide. Some sites were fairly level; some need lots of work to level. And then there's the bathroom - it is old & dirty - the worst we've seen in 2+ years. (I wouldn't use it.) Shower curtains separate the two men's stalls and you have to go through one to get into the other (!!) - the space is small and the layout is atrocious! Advertised WiFi was unusable from our site. PROS: The location is good to visit the nearby Scotts Bluff NM and Chimney Rock NHS. When we did find it, we were greeted by very nice park hosts; they're the best assets this place has going for it. But for $25/nite for a piece of dirt, we won't be staying again. We camped at Riverside City Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for three days to tour the area. Camp host was very accommodating and since he was from Scottsbluff, knew the area well. Our site was long and level with ood water pressure and power. Satellite reception was great. Bathrooms and showers were clean. We would stay here again. We camped at Riverside City Park in a Motorhome.

Just an overnight stay, but park offered level, pull through sites. Best WIFI have had at a RV park. Air antennae brought in all major networks, about 10 channels in total. On site host was very pleasant. About 10 feet between sites, but little shade. Just 3 miles off major highway, very quiet. We camped at Riverside City Park in a Motorhome.

This was a wonderful surprise! In the middle of the city and the price was great! We missed our road and had to find by phone map but easy to get into and close to stores. Also located next to the city's small zoo. We did hear a lion roar in the evening and in the morning, also some peacocks yelling but campground is quiet. Seems to have some locals camping for season but the campground had plenty of space and all other campers were respectful. We did not make a reservation in advance. There is a host camper that checks you in, takes you to your site. Very clean, well taken care of campground. No problem with outsiders coming in at night. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Riverside City Park in a Travel Trailer.

A wonderful place to explore the area. This is one of the best city parks we have encountered in our RV travels. The hosts were friendly and helpful. Power was good. Water pressure good. Used their WiFi without problems. Had AT&T phone service. If in the area we will return. Can't beat the price. Now for the fun part. This campground is near the Zoo. When the lion began growling our 140lb Anatolian was not too excited to go out! We camped at Riverside City Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is nice, not plush or with many amenities. Adequate for a few nights if visiting the area. One of the hosts seemed curt (maybe he had a bad day). The morning we were leaving I ask if the dump site was operational (it was all overgrown with grass with no evidence of use). It was but I was informed that since I only paid for electric/water site it would cost me an extra $7.00 to dump (added up to more than the price of a full hookup site). Simply a bad policy! If staying during the warm months beware of ticks. We found several on our pets and ourselves. We camped at Riverside City Park in a Motorhome.

Nice city operated campground with gravel roads and level gravel sites with large grass areas, table and fire pit. Sites with and without trees. Most sites are big rig pull through and only a few back-in sites, all are wide with 30 or 50 amp water and sewer. At the edge of town and quiet. Free and strong un-secured Wi-Fi. No game room, no pool, or scheduled activities etc. This is a campground not a resort. Very good Verizon cell and 4G signal. Satellite TV signal in most sites and good local TV signals, but no cable TV. Only one central restroom and shower, small but clean. Regular patrols by city police. Camp host very friendly and helpful. Accepts pets. Enter at the zoo entrance off Beltline Rd, hard left turn, then follow road ¼ mile to campground. Stayed in a 36ft 5th wheel and would stay there again. No discounts available. We camped at Riverside City Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is definitely NOT big rig friendly. We have a pull-thru site that has our awning in the road and we are only 36' with a tow car. Our biggest negative is lack of power. We got a 30 amp site which does well to pull 107 volts. Our power shuts down if we are underpowered and that happened as soon as we got set up in the heat. We need to run our a/c and power is fluctuating between 106 and 109. This park is really inexpensive which is not the reason we camped here. We only needed electric so it was less than a full hook up site. I suggest they increase their prices and make some much needed improvements. We definitely will not stop here again and if our power goes off again we're outta here today! We camped at Riverside City Park in a Motorhome.

A very nice little campground with level gravel sites. They are pretty close to each other, but when they aren't full the hosts try to park people away from each other. It is adjacent to the Riverside Zoo, which is also run by the city of Scottsbluff. No problem with noise or smells although I could hear peacocks while walking around the campground. The prices are very reasonable for what you get, although there is no pool or fancy play area for kids. They would probably enjoy a visit to the zoo. There are train tracks nearby, but I have not heard any whistles, and the chugging of the engines is not very loud. I paid $20 for full hookups, water and electric, water only and electric only also available for less. We camped at Riverside City Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 9 nights and the site was just fine. Satellite came in and the Wi-Fi was strong. Camp hosts are very nice and very accommodating. Will definitely stay here again if in area. We camped at Riverside City Park in a Motorhome.

OK, so we weren't really looking for a campground in relationship to a Zoo, but that's where it's located! Right behind the Riverside Zoo!! Same entry, then left on paved drive. FHU sites are $20 a night (none available during our stay). Water and Electric only rate is $15 a night! Camp "Hosts" were super friendly, even offered to guide us in and back to our site. Plenty of room for our 40 ft Class A and our toad. Would camp here again! We camped at Riverside City Park in a Motorhome.
