Merritt Trading Post and Resort, more like a fishing camp than "resort", has a special importance to the Merritt Reservoir camping area because it is the only facility of any sort whatsoever for 28 miles, Valentine Nebraska being the nearest city. Merritt Trading Post & Resort has 15 nice cabins and 6 full hookup (30 amp) RV sites available on site as well as a fully stocked general store and fuel station with gas & diesel. The management is helpful and friendly and they offer a variety of activities including swimming and fishing with boat rentals. There are many camping facilities in the area and the Merritt Trading Post & Resort cheerfully offers its support to all travelers alike. If you're headed to Merritt Reservoir for some fishing or camping fun be sure to visit the Merritt Trading Post & Resort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
