Winter Getaway

We stayed in the recently renovated Owen #4. The renovations really updated it and they need to update the pictures they have on the web, with what it looks like now. New appliances, new furniture, fixtures, new bunk beds, etc. The cabin was very clean and organized upon arrival. They supply most everything thing you need i.e. dishes, cookware, etc. The one thing it does need is a corkscrew! We forgot ours and went without the wine we brought for dinner. With that bombshell though, it was beyond worth the getaway. The winter hiking was fantastic and it was quiet except for the wildlife, but that is why we went out there!

Trains running all night

Nice to be next to the water but not peaceful at all.

Great Trails, Waterfall will Disappoint

If you’ve looked up PRSP online, you’ve probably seen photos of the parks “waterfall”. I don’t mean to be the bearer of bad news but they must have had a stellar photographer because it’s literally only like 2-3 feet tall. Now, that being said, it’s still a great park! they are several great places to hike and family activities during summer hours. There is a lookout tower as well— also not much to write home about. I would say this park tried, but there are many better in the area!

TeePee Camping Fun

We stayed in a teepee which was a first for us. The teepee area has about 8 teepees, each on a platform. Short walk in but a wagon is provided to help unload equipment. Picnic and fire pit near the teepee. We did have a raccoon one night, he thought about checking out the tepee while we sitting around the fire but my dog's bark scared him away. Lots of hiking in the area.

Beautiful, Good Hiking

Good hiking, horse rides, great hills for trail running.

rvs and cabins

we go every year, tents not allowed yet. plenty of cabins, water park and gun range. Horse rides available.

Nice little hike

I didn't get a chance to camp, but did a little hiking. The trails are well kept up and easy to follow. The small waterfall was a nice surprise as well!!

Platte River State Park

There are many many campsites here but they are all very nice and it's a very quiet place to relax. They have a few ponds with great fishing and access to the river for fishing and boat launching.

Cabins and Tepee Camping or Day Visits

Four stars instead of five because we prefer camping with our own equipment which isn't a feature at this park. Our family camped in a tepee which was set up on a platform before our arrival. Our kids very much enjoy hiking along and through the rocky creek in the middle of the park that leads to a tower overlooking the Platte River and surrounding farmland. The outdoor pool and paddle boats are also fun. In all, this is a low-key park for getting outdoors with the family.
