Great pitstop

Great stop for midway through Nebraska. Cheap as free. Got here at 6 on a Friday and there were several spots open.

Free Campsite with Hookups

Small space, not too far off the freeway. Great spot with kids, park and walking trails. Full hookups. Spot was clean. Great for overnight stay.

Sweet little campground!

Perfect for a night stop off the freeway. Sweet little pond with bull frogs that my sons loved chasing after, paddle boats, swing set and sand box. There are hookups, a dump station, and WiFi avail. Lovely grounds that are well kept, and super friendly staff. Will def bookmark this spot for future stopovers!

Great stopover off interstate

Older park but don’t let that fool you. The owners are doing a great job maintaining the park. Owners are very friendly for this Good Sam park. Gravel sites with pull through long enough for 44 foot motorhome and Jeep toad without unhooking. Small lake with a couple of paddle boats. Very peaceful and road noise not noticeable inside MH. Very good WiFi.

Great place but busy

Fremont lakes has several areas, or laked where you can camp off of. Victory lake is the lake where all types of motor powered boats are. These is also the lake that has mainly rvs camping off it. There is a concession stand or restaurant right off next to the many beaches. There is also a beach a little more secluded on the north side of the lake and another on the east side. There are several area and a tent site off a couple of the other lakes. They seemed a little tight or closer together. You also have the option of staying in the north camp grounds or cottonwood, where I stayed. This are closer to more primitive, they have very few electrical site and lakes or more untouched. But the sites are farther apart, and you are left more alone by game and parks. However this area is a little more rundown and can tell they didn't put much time into it. Also the floods of 2019 really took a toll on this area in particle. The downfalls is this place is always packed, the trains are louding going through at night. And the old part where we stayed could use some repairs.
All of Fremont lakes and activities available make it a must see from tent campers to rv users.

Bader review

When first arriving there is an office that has showers, bait, and vending machines. Tons of tent spots to choose from. You have the option to fish from 3 or 4 ponds plus the river is walking distance. Beach area for kids seems to have people there often. Good weekend get away.

Great fun, but

Let me start by saying this is the old part of The Fremont Lakes. We stayed in a spot next to lake #2. This a basic campground. It has a fire ring, and picnic table. The sites were space pretty well apart, and the people around were nice. We were able to fish, walk around the lakes, and kayak with my daughters. We were isolated from the newer areas but still walking distance. We did go down to the victory lake and swim and hang out at the beach. The down falls with this side is it don't get the maintenance or repairs the other side does. We had a lock broke on the bathroom, and a road that was destroyed from the flood of 2019. Also could hear highway traffic pretty loudly as well as the trains that blast through at night.

My main get in spot for kayaking

Over the years this has been my get in spot for around 100 kayaking trips. I’ve never had any issues with anyone messing with my vehicle. People from Grand Island have ruined this park by partying. Now it’s closed half the time and no alcohol is allowed. When it reopens I will still use this as my main get in. Would be much higher rated if it had not been ruined from partying.

Close to town easy in and out fishing

I like this site because I can get there within 20 minutes from my house in Lincoln. Paved roads and parking lot. Easy to use boat ramp. If you enjoy dock fishing this is the lake for you. They have several individual docks to fish off of. The catfish will come right up to them at night.

First to Review
Not Bad

Typically this park is used by locals for its river access. Tooley is maintained by Hamilton County and is usually in decent condition. Alot of times the area is crowded since it is a pretty popular point to get in and out of the river when kayaking, tubing, etc.
