2 Reviews of Botna Bend County Park
Hidden quiet gem

We were in the area for a family event, and this site was perfect for us. We had plenty of space for our 3 tents. There was a couple of small nature trails and a small herd of elk and bison on the property. we will have to come back and rent canoes for the awesome river access.

Botna Bend Official Review

This is one of the first campsites that I have been to in a while. The first time pulling through the park brought feelings of curiosity and wonder to my eyes and mind. The camp was spacious enough for a remodeled school bus and a camper van to fit comfortably and still have space to play frisbee. The campsite also came with a converted tire rim as a fire pit. We had plenty of sunlight for our solar systems on each vehicle which kept our batteries nice and full. The camp came equipped with bathrooms and a shower house. Walking on the trails reminded me of how beautiful nature is, because of all the flowers and tall prairie grasses. There were plenty of insects jumping, flying, and crawling all over the place which was frighting at times. Along one of the trails I even encountered a archery course, this was one thing that I hadn’t seen anywhere else. The park also has an enclosure with Bison and Elk, this was very nice because I got to see them up close and take lots of pIctures. The Nishnabotna River flows right next to the park itself, which makes for a great location to float down on a hot summer day. The park itself, for the day, is $3 and you can let your kids play on the two jungle gyms and walk the trails. For the campsite itself, it’s $15 and you have the option for a cement slab to park your rig or you can park in the grass, and each campsite comes with electrical outlets with enough power flowing through the wires to power all of your electronic needs. The only down fall that I had was one of the trails weren’t all the way mowed at the end; It made me feel like I was walking through the jungle, so it wasn’t too terrible. All and all, this was a good park and I enjoyed my stay and I’d recommend anyone to come visit this park.
