We camped here with our 17 foot Casita enroute to the Black Hills. It’s convenient for a stop on the way. However, the property is immediately adjacent to I-80. Lots of road noise. When you get off the interstate, you wend your way through truck stops to get to the campground. There is a Walmart and an Ace Hardware conveniently located just blocks away.
The campground is very clean and well-maintained. We arrived after closing, but our info and map was in an easy to locate envelope in the office. The staff even called us earlier in the day to make sure we would get settled OK. Very professional and customer oriented. The bathroom and shower house was immaculately clean. A+ on that. The water is good tasting.
A bit pricey for what it offers. Not much to do except tour the Buffalo Bill house:grounds. $25 for electric plus $8 for out of state campers. Ask the camp host for change and he was not in the least helpful. Had to go to him, otherwise we would’ve not seen him. The park ranger was very friendly, gave us good information about the area and easiest way to get back on interstate.
Due to a communication mixup we had no reservation as we were traveling through on a Friday night. We saw this on the Dyrt map and pulled in. It’s a combo gas station, convenience store, hotel, and campground. It has full hookups with several gravel pull-through sites. It is not fancy but sites are level and price is right at 22.50 and the owner was nice. There are a few grills beside a little fishing lake, no picnic tables, and a fair amount of highway noise. We ran our fan all night though and didn’t hear anything.
The views are pretty but the lack of full hookup sites and dump stations aren't worth it, in our opinion. When we booked our reservation, we utilized the options for 50amp site for a 40' camper and water. What we got was a 50amp site with "community" water available for us to fill up jugs and whatever else held water that we had to walk several sites down to get from a communal water faucet. Had we known this, we could have filled out fresh water tank completely to prepare. It isn't like we never dry dock but a more clear booking site would have helped us prepare. The trash dumpsters are in the worst possible spot for longer rigs pulling out from Lake Ogallala's SRA sites, including #36. And, finally…the fact the dumpstations are no where near most of the camp sites, nor are they clearly marked for convenient finding ensures we will not using this location again.
This location has the primitive feel with great facilities. If you want to stay to yourself you have plenty of space to do so. If your looking for a group event. They have close RV pads.
Highly recommend checking this campground out!
Pros: perfectly level spot, venue on property for live band & party, little cafe (although I just saw a post saying they closed the cafe), friendly & helpful staff
Cons: rundown, dirty (Amenities list a pond to swim in. Pond was full of algae and was more of a mud hole. Swing set outside of onsite venue was rusty, old and dated back to the 80’s), water supply was full of black gunk that nearly ruined our system (sanitized everything upon arriving home), no shade, no fire pits, picnic table was unusable without a table and bench cover set (deeply warped boards, peeling paint and jagged wood.)
We wanted to camp Nebraska's national forest for some time and we were not disappointed. The camp was full to the brim. all sites with hookups were taken, but the overflow is an abandoned, overgrown baseball field. It was great, spacious, close to the showers and flush toilets, and only $8 a night!
I think hookups were only $16, so this is a great deal no matter how you slice it.
Neighboring Thedford has Kayaks and Tanks you can rent. Tanking has become a Nebraska Thing. fitting a group of folks and possibly a keg in a horse tank and floating down river! We hiked to the ranger tower and it was a great hike with a spring fed trough half way up. Much to see in the surrounding area including art galleries, quilt shops, and more. Nice camping supply store right in Halsey.
Great rout fishing below the dam but the cool thing is that all of the lake and surrounding sites are available to you. Nice facilities and possibly a bit quieter than some of the Lake McConaughy sites which can become party sites.
