Clean, all hookups, next to city park. Reasonable $15 nite

Great place to tent camp!

The only issue I have is when the algae bloom happens every year, then there is no water activity permitted

If you want to party

Definitely more of a party campground. There are a bunch of lakes and a bar in the park. The bathrooms are gross, but they flush and there are showers.

Nice local gem

We went out to Czechland with my sons scout troop and had a nice time camping and fishing. The lake is gorge and the boys were catching a lot of crappie, as well as some large mouth bass and bluegill. They have some really flat tent areas, as well as some basic spots for RV’s. Very quiet area with some great views of the lake. The weather was a bit up in the air for some of the weekend and they do not have any storm shelters, so that is about the only thing does require an upgrade. Overall though it is a great place.

Power and water next to the swimming pool- free for 3 days!

This park is right of Highway 30 and if you are passing through and want power and water for a few days this should be your stop. unlike other city parks, this one has a burn pit.

I would assume that campers would have use of the shower facility at the pool, but if not, you could just spend a few bucks and swim all day and shower at the end.

Grocery store downtown had great steak prices and good price on ice.

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.

Nice Clean Lake North of small town with nice Czech Bakery

Clean quiet lake by Prague a small Nebraska town with a great Bakery and fun festivals.

The camping is quiet and clean as were the toilets. I did not fish but was told the fishing was very good,

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!

Best for a short camping trip or day trip

With tent and RV camping, this is a great place for a quick getaway if you live in Southeast Nebraska. There are picnic facilities and a snack bar, but you're also not too far from Fremont where you can buy supplies or grab something to eat. There is not much privacy as a side effect of having few trees. The lake is stocked so it's a decent spot for fishing.

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……

Friendly Staff, Small Semi Private Lake Beaches

It is great to back in and be right on a sandy beach area. This was a gravel pit site in the 1950-60s so water is deep and lakes are on small side..You may make reservations ahead, which is helpful due to this being the only full service hookups we could find. Representatives were readily available, sites were clean, and you can move without any hassle.

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.

Something for Everyone

When we got here on Saturday we were lucky enough to get the last spot. I would definitely call ahead to reserve a spot if going for the weekend. It is a college town and a state park so it was busy. Everyone was having a great time boating, fishing, camping, swimming, and etc. There are playgrounds, day use areas, picnic shelters,concessions, restaurant/shop, fishing pier along with many small fishing lakes. There are 2 larger rv campgrounds- Pathfinder and Victory Lake, and then a smaller one on the other side of the railroad tracks. All sites have Electric only. There are lots of tent sites. All around nice park and quiet during the week.

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.

Water and sewer ice park with playground for the kids

Clean and shady

Nice clean campground

Nice, clean campground. One of the state parks, so kind of crowded, but still pretty quiet. Plenty of swimming beaches, one near the campground store, which has almost everything you need or forgot. There's two separate sections, and the North campground is not reservable, but it's much quieter. Plenty of fishing here, too.

no shade at most tent sites

The lake was awesome, not much shade on most tent sites. make sure you ask when they dredged the lakes that you want to stay on.

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!

Favorite place in Nebraska!

My wife and I stayed where with a group of friends for a week. Great car camping experience here! We camped right along the water. We had sites 210 and 211 right on Victory Lake. The fishing was great and we had a lot of kayaking to do. There are a ton of available sites here right on the water. There is access to bathrooms and water nearby, and showers a little further up. We mostly cooked over campfire but there is a restaurant and we did head there while kayaking for a burger break. There is a swimming beach and you can get on the water for skiing and tubing if you like. While the campsites were crowded the water wasn't, so we didn't have too many motor boats to contend with while paddling. We really enjoyed this place and if we are in the area again this will be our spot.

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.
