Most expensive stay ever

The park itself is well maintained, showers and bathrooms were clean. Camp sites are very close together. We also had pizza that they make there and delivered to us. Downside, we stayed there because it was close enough to my most of my family. After paying $5 pp every time I had someone visit…

Great Experience at Tower

Was looking to stay here maybe a week & that turned into almost a month! Enjoyed the campgrounds, had shade trees, decent space between RVs & staff was Super Friendly. Would return again, no hesitation.

Nice but high use

Found a site with no problem but clearly this is an RV focused campground. I did find a nice grassy area for my tent but my neighbors aren’t far. The river is nice and the walking trails are ok.

Nice quiet park

Host was very friendly and helpful. They had some spots on the river. We stayed in a pull through that was very spacious with picnic table and fire pit. Spectated by trees so your not on top of your neighbor. Bathrooms and showers were very clean! Although no hand soap so bring your own. Showers…

Quiet place to rest

Great place right off of 90. Follow the gps location on the app. Don’t use the address off of the city’s web site. Plus there are signs for camping that will lead you right to it. It’s a first come place with no reservations and you pay on the honor system when you pull in. But full hook ups and…

Lazy H was the best!

Lazy H was the best experience for our family during our summer RV travels. We hiked, picked sweet corn, spent time on the water & enjoyed the beach, relaxed with a wonderful view! The family and I enjoyed the adventure and the locals/staff were very kind and friendly! The entire property is…

Well maintained campground

Pull through & full hookup paved lots. Nice manicured grass. Huge swim beach with anchored lilypads. You can rent out pontoons, pedal boats, kayaks. Don't plan on bringing your own. Food trucks come in during the day! It is Glamping camping.
Fishing has designated areas, though during…

100 years anniversary for Nebraska State Parks

We arrived on the cusp of the 100 year anniversary celebration of the Nebraska State Parks. Lots of fun extra things to do!

We found a great space in the Turkey Ridge campground. Electric with a water spigot between 2 spaces. We were in a tree cave with very little sunlight. Another…

Fine for a free night

We stopped late on our way to the Badlands and found a clean little municipal park with a creek and some brick structures. No amenities. We didn’t stay long but it was a safe, free place to pitch a tent.

Camped in a parking lot

First problem we had was they messed up our reservations because their computer system and the website aren’t the same so they didn’t have our reserved site for us. They did give us a spot for free but it was very sketchy and my wife and daughters didn’t feel safe so while I was setting up camp she…

Well maintained RV park

Only 4 stars due to neighbors leaving their dog outside barking constantly until they returned. Against park rules so maybe a one off. Water front on 80% of spots. Two fishing ponds & one swimming.

Quiet spot weekdays. Site is beautiful. Many campsites are almost full sun—so have your shade structure ready. Evenings very peaceful
