So much to do here

This park has a little of everything. Great sites— different loops to stay at. Nice bathrooms. Hiking trails and bike trails. Water park, horse riding area, fishing pond and more. This place does get packed so might have to make reservations early depending on weekend of course.

Ultimate in 21st Century Family Camping

This is a highly developed state park boasting an aquatic center, indoor gardens, zip lines, horseback riding, cabins and even a hotel on site. Popular for family reunions due to the amount of space and accessibility. There is a wonderful lookout tower that allows people to take in views of the Platte River. Nestled between two major cities in Nebraska, you're never far away from anything you may want to do or see. RV and tent camping is obviously available with limited privacy. This is also a great event venue with multiple large buildings available for reservations. This is not the 'roughing it' kind of camping, but rather a fun experience for the whole family.

So much to do

There are so many activities from your typical hiking experience to spending the day at the water park to being able to take the family mini golfing.

Busy campground with kid-friendly activities

This campground is crowded with significant interstate noise. However there are many activities for kids including paddleboating, a wave pool, horse riding, ziplining, and playgrounds. Modern restrooms with showers and power are available.

Beautiful, peaceful, and tons to do

Wow, what a wonderful State Park. This park has so much to offer and is well kept and beautifully landscaped. Make sure to reserve you're spot well in advance because everyone loves this park. We enjoy the sites right by the water where the geese come up into our site. There is so much to do here at the park like guided horse rides, the pool, painting, zip-lining, Trails, fishing, and paddle boat rentals.They have an activity center, an arboretum, and a look out tower which is worth the climb. There are also playgrounds, and ball fields.

There are 2 different campgrounds with nice spacious pads mostly shaded. There are also many cabins of all sizes which we have also stayed in during Christmas time many times and were very pleased with. All cabins have everything you need. Just come and have fun.

There is also a beautiful Lodge with a restaurant and store which is a must see. All in All this park has something for Everyone and hopefully you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Very shaded

A lot of activities for kids

Spacious, lots to do, and friendly service!

This campground was a one-night pit-stop for my friends and I on our way to Arizona, and it was perfect! It provided everything we needed, we loved our site, and the vastness of the campground itself was enough to make us excited to be there. Although we weren't staying for a very long time, it was great to see how family friendly the campground was and how many fun activities were offered. The staff was super friendly and we felt safe staying there. It was overall a great stay!

Nice campsites, but a bit noisy due to approximatelt to the interstate

Nice large campsites, but noisy due to being near the interstate and the trains were loud as well. Lots of activities but could get pricey

Activites Abound

If getting lost in nature isn’t enough to keep your group busy, this park offers many activites in addition to great hiking trails! trails overlook the river and train tracks with frequent trains passing for those interested in a moment of time warp. There is a craft shop where you can pain a figurine of just about anything. The lookout tower is a great place to brave your fear of heights. in the summer the pool is hours of fun and there’s ice skating in winter. in addition to cabins, there’s a main lodge with rooms. A great park for large groups, meetings, or retreats!

Good and bad

I picked this campground as a stopping point on the way to Yellowstone primarily for the pool for the kids. The pool is awesome. It was, however, expensive. $10 for adults (even as a non swimmer) and $8 for kids plus $3 to rent a tube for the wave pool. My only real complaint about the campground were the bathrooms. They were all shut down except for the bathhouse, which was a real pain. can hear the highway loud and clear. Right next door to the Air and Space museum.
