Big surprise! Sort of anxious after I made reservations & was told that they had been flooded from the storms & closed for a few months. They are just reopening - not to worry- sites are clean, but still lots of water!
She told the truth. This park dits right on the Mississippi ! We pulled in & the electrician was still wiring our pile!! Didn?t take him long & we were set! Within an hour this park was almost full. The men were working like crazy to get people parked, elec hooked up & still grading the spots to make them level from the mud, etc. it is definitely not your standard park. Everyone we met was friendly & helpful. Hardworking group of people! We would recommend & come back. Would love to see it dried out & normal! NOTE: Google gives 3 ways to get here. Take the South Loop Road. We didn?t & the local streets are very narrow & bumpy & difficult to navigate.
We pulled into this campground to spend a day exploring the area. This park is 30 min outside Lincoln & very secluded. If you want quiet this is a great place.
It had no one at entrance so we picked up our envelope to pay & looked for an area with elec hook-up. We found a building open so stopped I. For info & a map. The lady was nice. Told us the daily fee was $20.00 & the vehicle access pass fee would be $8.00. She knew we were I. A motorhome. She directed us to an area & said once we got parked to come back with sure # & pay her. We did that. When we paid she added an additional $8.00 fee for our motorhome. When we questioned it she said it?s because it has an engine so it?s also a vehicle! We asked if the 5th wheels or trailers pay that fee she said no!!
I called to district headquarters to complain about this policy plus the fact it?s not mentioned anywhere I can find. They simply say it?s Nebraska State Park policy.
So unless you are ok paying $36.00 a nite to stay in an elec only a day I?d advise you to go someplace else!!
We were here to tour Kennedy Space Center & this was very convenient. This is a county park so don?t expect a resort. We found it to be very comfortable for our stay. The spaces are far enough apart to feel some privacy. There are lots of trees for shade the hookups were good. Most places have fhu?s. It was quiet even though there were lots of families & kids. Staff was very nice & friendly. My only complaints are that some people don?t pick up after their pets & the trash is not convenient. They probably don?t have the staff to do a daily pick-up do you walk it to big dumpsters way out of the way. We would stay here again!
First I am only giving this 4 stars because of the location. Most places I would rate it a 3. You are packed in to a beautiful valley out in the middle of nowhere. The spaces are pretty tight but work for a night or so. It has the typical store/gift stuff. We hiked up on the mountain cliffs which were very pretty. Like I said it?s mostly about the location!
Stayed here for 5 nights in our 40ft Rv & toad. Had plenty of space. The park is clean & well managed. Not fancy- gravel & dirt with some grass between spaces. Spots are pretty level & not too close. Lots of people with quads- we are in Utah after all. Park was quiet at night. You are a few miles out of town. That didn?t bother us. We would stay here again.
Stayed here for a week in a 40 ft Rv. Place was packed- I guess we got lucky to get here for fishing opening. The spaces are very tight. I assume it's an older park & not really set up for larger rv's. The park is quiet & well maintained. The bathrooms & showers are nice. Once the weekend fishing groups left it didn't feel so congested. The spaces are gravel& pretty level. The rain makes it pretty messy. My real dissatisfaction is the cost. We paid 47.00 a night for a water/ elec only site. They charge extra for a pet. The pool wasn't open. They charge extra for a pull through. This is in spite of the rows being so close we could never have backed in to the spaces. They don't give any discounts. We have stayed at a lot of much nicer parks that cost quite a bit less. We will plan more next time & stay at a different park.
Beautiful park right of the 20 E. except for the constant traffic noise this is a great park. The people are friendly, the spaces are long & wide. There is a concrete space to park. Grass is nice. We are in a 40 ft Rv & towing Did not have to unhook.
