For an overnight stay this suited its purpose just fine. Clean restrooms and sites. Treeless campsites with a shelter for sun and wind protection. But in October, the weather was accommodating. Would definitely go here again for an overnighted on my way to the Rockies from the east on 80.
It’s 25 bucks for the night for tent camping. It doesn’t seem too busy. It includes bathrooms, showers, a water pump, tables, trash cans and a whole park right next door to it. It’s super nice and laid back here! Mostly rvs are parked here. You pay at the little kiosk with a credit/ debit card. That was nice I’ve never seen one like that it’s usually cash at most camp sites. We checked in last night and we have to leave by 11:59 am the next day. It’s a great little spot. The town seems nice. Multiple parks right around the site. People were friendly.
Full of dirt and nasty bugs owners are not good. They run over cats and kill dogs seen it happen. Old man jimmy doesn’t care about anything but drinking beer and killing animals. 600$ plus to stay there a month without hookups. It’s full of sand. Don’t stay here.
Bathrooms were large and clean. Plenty of hot water in the morning. Has a laundry room. Friendly staff and neighbors. Had many many painful plant spurs imbedded on the tent floor and coming through. There was a wasp nest in the electrical outlet as well. We were tired and just wanted to sleep. No other camp was available so we delt with the spurs.

Just spent the night. It was nice and quiet. The spot we picked was pretty level. Lots of area for walking and exploring. Unfortunately a lot of trash scattered over the area. The road back was moderately washboarded but not too bad since it’s not far from the road.
We have stopped at this location twice now and the rules have been changing. This is a small city park that allows you to overnight one night for free. After that there is a fee. There are several longer term campers here too. They have electric and water hookups as well as a dump station. When you pull in, it is a U shaped driveway and the spots are on both sides of the road. There are 18 spots total, these seem to fill up nightly and people come in throughout the day.
While this isn’t a glamorous stop, it’s a safe place to rest before continuing your journey. There are several great diners and bars in the area too. There is a city pool next door and a pond across the street that is stocked.
There is a train nearby, this didn’t disturb us. There are locals residing there, they were very nice. The streets were easily accessible.
