Small park

Smaller park with about 15 tent sites with fire pits and picnic tables. Outhouse facilities with no access to fresh water. There is no playground equipment. Access to 2 fishing ponds and a short hike to access river.

Nice Lakeside Campground close to Wildlife Area, golf, and Platte River

Campsites close to the lake and nice paved walking trail. Several options for camping include primitive for $10, power for $15, and full hookups for $20. Pay showers and flush toilets. Wildlife area south of town is right on the river and good for a quiet hike.

Nice playgrounds for the kids.

Schuyler has some of the best Mexican food in the state.

City Park with Hookups- Close to Swimming and Putt- Putt Golf

Park by the fairgrounds and ballpark. Small town with a cool looking putt-putt golf course.

Daily, weekly, and even monthly rates. RV dump and flush toilets. Showers at the pool can be used for free.

Electric Hook-ups. 3 sites with sewer hookups.

Primitive Camping by a Hydro Plant

Nice playground, picnic tables, and charcoal grills. Clean restroom. Free tent camping. good fishing in the canal. Close to town yet far enough away.

Nice parks in town including a memorial to Andrew Jackson Higgins, the inventor of the Higgins landing craft,

Mammoth waterpark.

Better park for a picnic than camping.

Free Campground with Hookup next to Lake and Wetland

The campground has multiple hookups with gravel slabs, picnic tables, and firepits with grates. in addition, many have raised charcoal grills. A paved walking trail goes from the campground and connects to a system of trails. Vault toilet was clean and close.

The camp area was close to a heavily trafficked road but it caused little disturbance. the toilet had no doors making it a concern if you were to enter and discover someone in use and made it uneasy when you were using it yourself for the same reason.

Columbus has a lot going on including a large waterpark.

Free Lakeside Camping with hookup

This camping area has open sites close to the edge of the lake. Electric hookups, toilets, and convenience store close by.

The lake is artificial and has steep metal walls like a reservoir, which was probably what it was. Next to the reservoir is a large wetland teaming with wildlife. There is a long paved trail that skirts the lake.

Columbus Nebraska has a lot going on including a rather mammoth waterpark.

Canoe or hike in and possibly see Bigfoot?

"Nebraska’s state wildlife management areas are open to… many activities, including hiking, bird watching, nature study, and primitive camping. Maps of WMAs may be found in the Public Access Atlas."

"Access to these lands is free, and no entry permit is necessary."

Primitive camping right along the beautiful Platte River just south of Schuyler, NE.

While hiking along the trail I came across a freshly killed deer. On my return I passed by again and saw the skin had been peeled back like a turtleneck shirt you are removing. I tried to think What animal would peel the skin of a deer??? So if you go there, keep a lookout for Bigfoot!

Algae

Unfortunately Willow Creek State Recreation Area, NE was under a health advisory when we arrived due to algae. We drove through the different areas and it was completely deserted so we continued on the Niobrara State Park. I did not check ahead because I just picked it off the map as we were driving. This seems like a nice , sparsely shaded area with water sports when it’s safe to be in the water……

Ranger Review: Primus Trailbottle at Bader Park in Nebraska

Campground Review: Bader Park is located in Merrick County a few miles from Marquette Nebraska. It has 24 Rv sites with Electric at $20/night and over 15 tent sites at $10/night, along with lots of day use areas. Everyone also needs to purchase a $6/day vehicle pass. It is a smaller campground with acres of prairie wetlands and miles of trails. There are picnic areas with grills scattered throughout and a group picnic shelter. The showers are coin operated, make sure you bring shower sandals. We were the only campers there except the campground hosts. It was quite chilly in the evenings, but enjoyed sitting out by the campfire looking up at the full moon and stars. You only heard nature around you…the leaves rustling as they blew in the wind, the crickets and frogs singing and the coyotes chattering in the distance. So very relaxing.

Bader Park has a swimming beach with a sandvolleyball net, and multiple fishing ponds. During the year they have fun activities for children and adults including Bird/Nature hikes, a Haunted forest, and Haunted Halloween Campgrounds.

Product Review: As a Ranger for The Dyrt, I get products to test from time to time and I tested the Primus Trailbottle at Bader Park. What I love about the 1.0L(33.8 oz) Trail bottle:

  1. It's stainless steel with powdered coating. I chose black and it wow it looks sharp, but it has other color options. It also stay cold for hours.
  2. I use it for flavored water and was excited that it didn't retain the flavors from previous drinks.
  3. It is dishwasher safe and if you choose to wash it in the sink the opening is larger which makes it easy to get a brush in there to clean. It also makes it easier to get ice in.

4. I love that it is light weight and easily fits in the pocket of my backpack. It also comes with a. a strap on lid so it doesn't get lost and you can strap it on to your backpack.

I give The Primus Trail Bottle 5 stars as it meets and exceeds my expectations. Take a look at all the Primus products at https://www.primus.eu/

Aurora-Nice park and town

Streeter Park is in the town of Aurora and is a free will donation for up to 4 days. It has Electric and water and a dump station. There are 18 level, gravel pads that are somewhat close together. The sites are shaded and the park is clean and kept up. It is a nice area with a new water park, and playground for kids. There is also new tennis courts and Trails. We were able to get cell service and had a nice stay.

Love love love!

Jeeping at Broken arrow is always so much fun! great people, great jeeping, great gathering with other jeepers, friends and a great guide for newbies ;) love it there!

Neat Park

We stopped on our way to South Dakota this summer and were surprised to find these Rv sites at the municipal park. Our site was in the grass, there was a neat little bridge and the park was well kept. Plenty of room between sites and reasonably priced. Great place to stop over.

Secluded

Pioneer Trails Recreatin Area is a new campground so there is no shade available, but the sites have lots of room between them and have nice level, long concrete pads with a picnic table and fire ring. There are 10 Rv sites with electric only and a separate area with 8 tent sites. The tent sites are walk up sites. There is a nice lake for fishing or boating, and the area is well kept and will be beautiful once the trees come into full maturity.

Great little getaway

First time visitors to this campground and it was great. We stayed here on our visit up to Ashfall Fossil Beds(which is a must see for anyone with kids, and is only a 30 minute drive from campsite) Most RV campsites are within a minute or two walk to lake. Awesome bike trails take you all around the lake and even across a bridge and dam for great views from multiple angles. Lots of wooded area and picnic locations. Has a couple of playgrounds for the kids, the one our kids loved required a little bike trek from the campground to the north side of the lake. One minor note to add would be to use the restrooms in the shower facility. Other restrooms that were not in the shower facility didn't seem well maintained. Other than that we would definitely come back and stay at this campground.

Quiet Rving next to a great little lake.

Clean restrooms and showers. Some sites have lake access. Well wooded.

Golf Course

There is no camping here it is a golf course. The fairgrounds campsite is nearby and so is a municipal park campground.

Free electric, water and dump station

Streeter park in aurora Nebraska, nice shade trees, sites were gravel/grass back in’s, was hot and glad to have free electricity and water, trash & dump station nearby, also water park across the road but didn’t use it, stayed 1 night,,

Great park!

free, 30 amp hookups (donation). waterpark like swimming pool. ball fields. hiking and biking on paved trail a few miles from I 80 so great for travelers. 4 day limit. single bathroom near campground but bigger facilities near ball fields. no showers but maybe at swimming pool?

North Loup River valley getaway

I grew up in the towns next to the Davis Creek Dam which is managed by the NRD. This is a great , once upon a time small campground right on Davis Creek Dam. You’ll enjoy this campground that is far away from road noise. Supplies can be purchased in North Loup, Scotia or Ord Nebraska, roughly 6 and 16 miles way respectively. This campground gets busy over summer holidays but other than that I’ve found that you can reserve same day spots without worry, especially if you are tent camping.

Fun

Good fishing and swimming

Nice quiet site

Water and sewer ice park with playground for the kids

Clean and shady

I is very shady and clean, nice biking walking trzil

Very clean, bit crowded.

If you want a spot where the hookups are, go early on Thursday or Friday. It fills up very quickly. The tent sites are off to the side, but plenty of room. Loup PPD takes very good care of this place! A large pond to swim or kayak in, and great fishing in the canal. There is a four wheeler course on the other side, which can get loud, but if you can ignore that, this is a great little place!

Perfect Go To

We found this campground a few years back and have visited multiple times. The lake is huge and great for fishing. There are miles of trails that we enjoyed. If you're into archery like we are, they have a great archery area. Nights are quiet and there are plenty of local spots nearby for the day time like a vineyard and for a little longer drive you can see ash fall fossil beds. This place is just great!

Ta-Ha-Zouka, Norfolk NE

This is a CITY campground. We stayed here May 9, 2015, in our small class B rv. It is an OK choice when no other more scenic and quiet options are available. We pulled in late and left early on our way to better places! There is some road noise as it is just off the road into Norfolk. Bathrooms were clean, we were very tired and noises did not wake us during the night.
