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. We camped here in a Motorhome.

RiverWest is an event/entertainment campground (music, movies) for tenting that recently added RV sites. It is a beautiful location on the Elkhorn River trees and grass. For RVers it is still under development. Toilet facilities are porta-potties, and the shower is an outdoor screened area with a tankless propane heater, which we really enjoyed. There are no sewer hookups, but they have a sewer service. Water hookups is by multiple hoses. They show movies every weekend, and they blared on until 1 A.M. The music area is at the other end, and we did not hear it. The biggest problem was power. After we began to have low voltage problems, we discovered that we were hooked via five daisy-chained 30A extension cords to a breaker box 150' away. Our voltage monitor sounded several times (set at 102V), and we had to turn off the A/C to run the microwave. Most of the sites had small hookup boxes (not standard RV boxes with breakers), but it was unclear what size wire served them. We hooked to one for several days, and the voltage was higher and acceptable but still fluctuated when A/C and microwave were on, which leads me to believe that the wiring was too small. I talked to the owner about the voltage, but he did not seem to understand the risk to RV systems. In fact, he wanted to move us back to the extension cord to accommodate new campers in the other slot. Ticks were also a problem. We are still finding them in our rig at the next campground. I really wanted to like RiverWest (Omaha desperately needs another campground), but it is not ready for prime time even if you do not mind not having sewer. I suspect that the owner does not understand the needs of RVs. The owner says he plans to build a new RV area, but he does not plan to install sewer. Too bad. This could be a wonderful and much needed new campground, but as it stands you have to like primitive, noise and be willing to endure low voltage. I really hope that changes in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
