A new SRA in NE, $17 per night with electric for a gravel pad ($13 for grass site with electric). Very nice restrooms with pay showers. Camped there after heavy rains during Memorial day weekend and the restrooms/showers were muddy from folks tracking in mud. However, staff cleaned the restrooms frequently. After crowds left, restrooms were in excellent shape. No trees as it is a new area. Would camp there again. Within ~1 mile of Wahoo, NE where all services are available. - katinfoco

Great state park. Had reservations and it was a good thing, it was booked up. Visiting friends and family, park is convenient to Omaha. We had a handy cap stop which was really nice. All sites in this park are back in. Had a little trouble getting the satellite going, alot of trees, but managed. Really nice place, lots of little lakes to fish in, and a nice swimming beach. Will definitely stay here again when in the area. - Travelin Jenkins

We booked a spot in advance, online, that had water and electric hookups. We were in #037. We were not far from the dump station, so it wasn't too much trouble to use it when we needed. We stayed 4 days, 3 nights.
Since we were visiting friends that were staying in Omaha, we drove into the town frequently. It was about 25 minutes drive. We did not check out any other part of the park. It was very pretty. The spots were kept level and had plenty - plenty - of space between each one.
When we arrived and checked in, the girl told us that the day before they were having problems with the dump station. She didn't know if it had been fixed and suggested that the next closest one to use was in either Fremont or Yutan. Having come a long way, we were a bit discouraged, but we decided to check out our spot first.
In the hopes that maybe the girl was wrong, my husband decided to make sure the information we were given was correct. Turns out, there was no problem with the dump station at all. We were delighted! I would definitely stay here again. - Christina O

Strange park but beautiful area, right on the river. We pulled in late on a Friday night, never have we pulled into a state park to be greeted by 3 park rangers. Out of concern we asked if we should be concerned about anything and the kind ranger said no, they're just there to keep the peace. One ranger had his truck parked in the way of the entrance and didn't move his truck so we could pull through, we had to maneuver through the exit. We found the area we had reserved, the Cottonwood. It's just one big loop. You don't back into sites, you park right there on the road! It was tight pulling our 5th wheel through the area. Luckly we had reserved a spot on the LEFT side of the road othewise we would not have been able to open our slides! Our door opened to the road. The park was packed and there was music playing well past midnight. The bath house was AWFUL! The showers were creepy. Doesn't look like they have ever been updated. We were here for a sporting event and had to be up at 5:30am and didn't get back until late in the evenings so we were unable to explore the park. I don't know if we'd come back here in the future. I prefer to support our state parks but something just wasn't right about this one. Our state is making cut backs and closing some of our parks early this fall, when you see 3 rangers working late in the evening at 1 park it makes you wonder what kind of people the area attracts. - Mom2Two

This is a very busy campground. On weekends it is difficult to drive through because of all the cars parked along the road, and because of the placement of the dump station in the Pathfinder campground. Campsites are pretty well spaced out. Most are large enough for a camping unit, a car and a boat, but the park is so close to town, there are a lot of visitors who also need a place to park. Because of all the traffic/use, the grass is pretty thin in most spots. Still, we will stay here again during the week, when it is much quieter and easy to get out on one of the lakes, etc. The staff is friendly and helpful and the park is well-maintained. There is some train noise, but it is usually quiet at night. - Bobbi1948

Rate includes out of state $5.00 fee.. Really poor signage. Got lost in a subdivision. Once there, people were very nice, showed us where to go on their map. Only a few pull through sites. Stayed day after Labor Day, so park clean-up was really needed. Flies everywhere. Must be their state bird. Could not sit out that evening; way too many flies. - tom3817js

We spent 4 nights. We looked on-line and found a 50 amp site that would accommodate our rig. We stayed there Wednesday through Saturday, and since we are self-contained, we didn't use the showers. Although I looked at them. They were clean and spacious, but very dark and you had to pay for the showers. I loved the quiet atmosphere during the week. The trains were close, but we sleep with a fan, so the noise was not a problem. For the price, I thought this was an excellent park and would stay there again. The lakes were small, but beautiful. We had a family reunion there and were able to rent their new Rec Room. The ranger was very accommodating. - mnmwillis

Large, level, graveled parking lot with water (2 connections) and electric hookups (50 and 30 amp receptacles). No trees. Dump station is on site. 2 porta-potties in the center of the lot. Great water pressure at our site. Some sites had a picnic table. Large parking lot to the east would be useful for kids to ride their bikes but you won't be able to see them. Huge soccer fields to the west. Horse riding area to the north and baseball playing fields further north. Wide walking path down to the train tracks and along the tracks. No traffic noise from lightly traveled street. There is an airport next door but I never heard one take off or land. - Pat Engle

This is a good campground if you just want to park for the night or nights while you are busy elsewhere. It's really just a parking lot that was set up with hookups for campers. The good news is that you get both water and electricity. It's also cheaper than the nearby state park and there is usually a site available. - Bobbi1948

Gravel lot. Water & electric only, dump station available. Near street, some noise. Clean and lighted, no manager on site. - a67rve

Lots of drama with the employees fighting getting drunk and yelling right in front of us and everyone else. We will never step foot in this campground again. If you like smelling and watching kids smoke pot, drink alcohol this place is for you. The place is set up for tents mostly and about 10 spots for RVs; there is no WiFi, shower or bathrooms, just portables. The campground was at least kept clean. - Mississippifam

This is primarily a weekend, tent camping location. On many weekends they have entertainment. The weekend we were there it was very quiet. We were one of six RVs. 30 amp power was fine, and shared water supply worked. A hole in the ground provided dump for grey water. To dump black water you had to arrange a removal service which required $10 fee. The owner, a very nice guy, is still learning about RVers. If you are looking for services, facilities, WiFi, etc this is not for you. We choose it because of location, and it was fine for three nights. - Ncw

Stayed here because only park with availability that night. Not suited to big rigs really. And not easy to get to. We had to go on to another city because we had difficulty getting to this park and then didn't find it could really accommodate our motorhome and tow car. Several tenters were here so maybe more suited to the "camping" crowd. - whipsnapcracker

Nice park: Flat, level gravel pull through site that was just long enough so I did not have to unhook my truck from my trailer. Site had wooden deck with a nice wooden picnic table. There was also a BBQ and fire pit on the site. Spots are close together, we were led to our spot by a KOA staff member which made maneuvering into the site very easy. It feels if you are in the country, but you can definitely hear the freeway. The swimming pool was clean and pleasant. We ordered a pizza from the office, that was delivered to our site. The pizza was excellent and the price was reasonable. The campground is full of mature trees. - travelcouple

Quiet and out in the country. Sites are a little close together; meaning your neighbors' dump hose runs 2 feet from your picnic table. There was one issue where a visitor parked his car in the entry lane, and campground staff went to great lengths to track down the owner and get the car moved. Park has a nice playground for the kids with one of those inflatable bounce pillows. Camp store is well stocked. There is a breakfast buffet, but we needed to be on the road early and didn't look into this. Dinner & snacks are available at the camp store, there is some delivery options that will bring it right to your site. Some fast food options and a Pilot/Flying J at the nearest I-80 exit. Walmart is about a mile east on I-80. Very isolated, and very quiet. We were there for one night, most of the others seem to be spending a week there for vacation. It is Nebraska, and can be windy at times. - charles_from812

We stayed one night at this KOA, arriving after dark. The park entrance is very poorly lit and somewhat deceptive. The driveway is not at the KOA sign, you have to go past the sign and find the driveway entrance in the dark with oncoming traffic that is going 60 mph. The entrance involves a sharp, almost U-turn into the driveway and back-tracking to the office.
You can pull up to either side of the office building to check in...it's easier to get into the interior with roads if you pull up on the right side, especially with a larger vehicle.
This is an older campground, the interior roads are very narrow and the sites are very close and unlevel. There are concrete or wood patios/decks at many sites. You are really on top of your neighbors. There is little or no lighting on the roads or signs -- check the campground map very carefully before trying to find your site.
The campground has a nice pet walk area. Hookups worked fine and television reception was good.
Several other reviewers have mentioned the muddy conditions after rainfall. In dry weather, this campground is extremely dusty. - expdek570

Called about reservations and were told no problem. We arrived and were met by a courteous and friendly staff. It was interesting to note that they have a full bar and dining area!
We were not impressed with the entry road as it is full of pot holes and a speed bump which really isn't needed. Other than that, the sites are level, decently spaced with good power and water, and sewer. - Mooney 201 Pilot

This is an older park that is clean but it looks tired. We did have a problem with the breaker for the 50 amps. They did replace it but a little grumpy about it trying to say it was me and too much stuff on. Problem is I have a management system to stop that and I had no problems after they replaced it, nor at any parks before or since.
The single computer on the wifi is a first. Not sure the thinking but just an aggravation.
I would stay again. - peddy dick

Stayed at this park for three nights in a 38 ft fifth wheel on a level gravel full service pull through. The park is extremely well cared for and clean. The area they fall down is on their client skills. The young man that checked us in was very condescending and made us feel that it was a bother to check us in. Also you will only get free wifi for one device here and when we asked how much for a second device the young man said we would find out when we tried to sign in a second device. This is good for a one night stop over as it is close to the interstate. - Irish2

Stayed for two nights. This park is our favorite when visiting family in the Omaha area. Lots of activities, sites are nice, mostly shaded, RR are clean. Good value. Don't visit on a Husker football weekend. CG is full by Thurs. without reservations. - Dennis D

We stayed at Mahoney for a few days. The site was mostly level and there was plenty of grassy space between sites. The entire campground was very shady with established trees. The restrooms and showers were clean. We had electric, but no water or sewer. There was a dump station conveniently located on the way to the campground. There are lots of fun activities for the family, swimming, putt putt, horseback rides, paddle boats, fishing, hiking, and more. We will definitely stay here again. Great destination spot. - idahogirl

Big rig warning: I do not recommend using ReserveAmerica until you have talked to the park office. The park is a series of very steep hills. With fairly narrow blacktop roads. Backing up a hill steep enough to sled on with little room to maneuver could be a challenge for a large fifth wheel or a gas motor home. There are a number of sites at the bottom of the hills that are great, but there is no real way of knowing on ReserveAmerica and Google maps does really show you how steep the roads are. The office can tell you what you are in for. There are some sites that do have water and sewer, but they don't seem to be available on the ReserveAmerica web site. The ReserveAmerica fee does NOT include the state park fee of $5 a day per car or truck (or a max of $25 per vehicle). Other than that nice park. Friendly staff, large spaces between campsites - Tom & Marilyn

Very clean and nice place to stay, I'm here for work and after the last campground this is like a resort. Would recommend to everyone, they have a nice lake here as well. Sites are clean, come with table and fire pit and down the way is a shower bath house. - Mississippifam

Leave it to the Corp of Engineers to build a nearly perfect campground. Price is for FHUs and includes $5/daily entry permit but not the $7 reservation fee. Entry permit is $25/year. This review is for Area 1/South Shore. There are campgrounds in 8 areas around the lake, and each is different, including an equestrian one. Make sure you know which area you are in to plan the most direct route. Wide well-maintained roads, level pads, excellent hookups and spacious sites (most are lake front or lake view). Very quiet except for crickets. Clean restrooms with individual shower rooms. Dual dump station with long, straight entrance road. Mostly open with immature trees. Playground, boat launch, picnic shelter, beach, and hiking/dirt bike trails. All the major broadcast channels. No AT&T signal but Verizon was good. Would get a 10 rating except for some little things: Showers are 75 cents for 3 minutes, our entire visit the gate was unstaffed and there were no maps in the holders, most pads are on the short side for today's RVs, and out of 600 campsites only 12 are FHU. It was nearly empty during the week in September, but reserve well in advance for weekends, holidays or FHUs. - Keeping up with the Joneses

We reserved there because they told us on numerous occasions there would be NO fireworks. Our 3 dogs are afraid of all fireworks! They indeed did have fireworks and when I called to complain the manager stated " there is no one available to go check the site/sites setting them off". Then we also found out the next day that the PRIVATE campground on the lake was allowed to do fireworks in which we were never told about. So with our dogs being petrified all night we got to sit inside the camper and try and drown out the LOUD CONTINUOUS BOOMS! We are very disappointed! - schatzee

This is a large gravel parking lot to support concessionaires of the event center. Camping fees can be paid at the business office in the Northwest corner of the event center. Fees are high for what you get, but its located on a greenbelt with a Walmart next door. - perry four

The website reflects that this campground is open year round. However, when we got there, most of the power boxes were locked and we never saw anyone who was responsible for directing us to a site we could use or to whom payment could be made. However, we found an unlocked power box, had good 50 amp service and did not have to pay anything. Since there were no events the weekend we were there, there were only about 5 campers total so, we had the place to ourselves. There is a lovely rails to trails path right behind the campground which we used to exercise ourselves and the dog. I can see how this campground would be really crowded during the state fair but for one overnight or even several, it was fine. Not pretty but level. - Pottsluck

We have stayed at this campground every year for the last 4-5 years because it is so close to the kids house. It is nothing fancy but handles big rigs well and the power is top notch. They have a sewer dump site and fresh water. For up to a week if you visiting on the East side of town, this is a great place. - Mike & Pat
