Platte River State Park

Very nice park! Not as crowded as neighboring Mahoney State Park but very similar activities.

Horseback riding and archery.

Very clean Campground very well maintained horseback riding was a blast and the archery range was cool as hell face to the T-Rexes

Great beginning hikes

Platte River has nice inexpensive cabins and lots of easy trails to explore with the family. There’s also horse trail rides and a splash pads. Don’t want to cook? There’s a lodge restaurant with yummy homestyle cooking.

Great for cabins!

They have a couple of different kinds of cabins. There’s a bunch of trails! The park in general is beautiful.

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.
