5 Reviews of Bessey Recreation Complex Campground
Under the stars

What a wonderful place with so many trees. If you get the chance to up the fire tower and talk to the park ranger.

Nice and Can't beat the price

Halsey National Forests campground is called Bessey Recreation Campground and has cabins, Rv sites, tent sites, as well as group and family sites. The Rv sites are Electric and gravel and are fairly level. They have picnic tables and fire rings and are spacious. And of course plenty of shade since you are in a forest.

There is a Nursery which grows the trees for the forest, a Look Out Tower which offers a panoramic view of the Sandhills, hunting, fishing, scenic drives, wildlife viewing, hiking and ATV trails, along with other activities.

It is a nice place to stop over and see.

STUNNING!

A delightful oasis in the sand hills. Beautifully maintained campground right beside the river.

Spotless facilities, private camp spots, pristine park like setting

Beautiful scenery and plenty of wildlife

Only spent 1 night on our way through to the Black hills but loved the campground. Lots of pretty scenery and wildlife. Very peaceful. Nice trails. Big and deep fire pits with gravel pads and patios. Lots of ATV activity because of the great trails. Clean bathrooms/bath house, but only 4 total stalls in the main camping area. Bit of train noise during the day, but didn't really notice it overnight.

Largest man made forest

Right on the middle loup river, and in the middle of nowhere this place can get busy.

Great hiking through the Sandhills. The scott lookout tower can give you views across the Sandhills for miles upon miles on a clear day. Want stars at night? You can see them all.

Roads to drive on and explore that take you to the south of the first to the Dismal river

the campsotes are all shady lots of open spaces in the csmpground too for picnics and games

don’t forget to check out the tree nursery Pretty cool to see all the trees growing as seedlings
