Great site on river

This is the first camping area you come to on Trapper Rd. Two more areas further on. As another said, blink and you will miss it. Sites set up for tents, we backed our truck camper up in an open area of the lot and had a great view of the river. We registered for and used #2, which has a nice shade tree. Price ranges $5-10. Vault toilet was spotless with plenty of TP. We were the only ones there. Downside was when the breeze quit the biting flies and mosquitoes attacked. Stayed 7/19/2021

A Hidden Gem

Wow, we were on our way to campgrounds up the Platte River and stumbled upon this tent campground that will accommodate a few smaller RV’s. The grassy area next to the river with shade of cottonwoods and tables is to die for.

Nice Campground with good fishing

This campground is right off the road. Blink and you will miss it. Sitting right next to the Platte river. This allows great access to early morning and early evening fishing. Only downside is the mosquitos are pretty heavy there in July and August.
