COE Campground on Lake Somerville

This is a wonderful very well maintained Corp of Engineers campground on Lake Somerville. RV sites are level with plenty of spacing, lots of people tent camping. Sites have water and electric and there is a dump station. Clean bathrooms, well maintained trails and miles of accessible shoreline. Great AT&T and 2 bars T-Mobile reception. Some areas are closed because of previous flooding. Tons of deer wandering around every evening. Highly recommend for a relaxing place to stay.

RV Sites right on the Lake

We stayed in Site 1 which has a large yard and unobstructed view of the lake, which is only about 40 yards away.

Our site has water and 50 Amp electric and there is a dump on the way out of the park. The bathhouse is very clean, having a single bathroom stall and shower and lock on door. There is also a large bathhouse down the road.

Our AT&T hotspot had a strong signal. There is a nice nature walk trail at the end of the road.

Nice no hookup campground

This review is for the West Campground, which is a Basic site with no hookups. There is water in a couple places but not at each site. The sites do have a picnic table, fire ring or grill. There are trash dumpsters, a playground, porta potties and a more modern restroom at the end of the campground. Most sites are fairly level and have trees for shade. Sites 1-17 are right on the lake, although the sites near the power generating have a strong surphur smell from the water.

This is a great place to stay if you don’t mind no hookups.

Campground on beautiful lake with white sandy beaches

Lone Eagle Campground is a mostly full hookup campground on the north shore of Lake McConaughy, Nebraska’s largest reservoir, located at the edge of Nebraska’s Sandhills. The entire shoreline of the lake consists of fine white sand beaches and the water is clean and clear.

We camped here in our 39’ travel trailer in a back-in, full hook up site. The water spigot is equipped with a splitter and is shared by two spots. The water pressure was so low that our water pump came on constantly when we used the water, even though we did not have a neighbor hooked up to our spigot.

Our 50 Amp power was good and the sewer hookup was fine. We had a view of the lake but because of the water being low, it is about 1 or 2 city block distance to the water. There were many sticker burrs in the grassy areas.

The bathhouse was not very clean but it is used by many people just here for day use activities. The showers are pay, 2 tokens for $1.00 and each token lasts 2 minutes. We did not have to use the showers. There is a playground for the kids and a couple large recycle containers, one for plastic and one for cardboard. The trash dumpsters are near the bathhouse.

We had 1 to 2 bars AT&T and they advertise Wifi but you have to pay for it.

This lake is lovely and the campground would be best enjoyed if you have a boat or jet ski.

Green grass and space just outside Gering

We stayed at Robidoux RV Park for one night in a pull through full hook up spot. It had a concrete pad with a patio and picnic table. All sites are 30 and 50 Amp and our pull through was long enough to stay connected. This is a City of Gering RV Park and and with our Good Sam discount and tax, ended up being $29.00 per night. You can make reservations, or if there is space you may just show up and pick your spot. Our site and all of the park have lots of grass and open spaces with great views of the Scotts Bluff National Monument.

The bathhouse was very clean. The park had a laundry, playground and basketball court. There is wifi but we used our AT&T hotspot instead. This would be a great place to stay longer and check out the area.

First to Review
Like Boondocking with Water and Electric

I found this campground on Google Maps and it looked pretty intriguing. It’s a very remote campground a half mile down from the Agate Fossil Beds National Monument Visitor Center. It looks like a boondock site, but they have 30/50 amp hookups and water as well as a dump site. We spent 4 nights here.

The surface is gravel and we had to do some leveling when we parked. There are hookups for 8 RVs but it would best accommodate 3 - 4 big rigs. I called to make sure they had a spot and talked to the owner, Donna Skavdahl who was very nice and told us there was plenty of space. There was only one other camper when we arrived and a couple others came and went while we were there.

We had a great time one evening sitting around our propane fire pit talking with some other campers. This is a very interesting area being on a huge 16,000 acre ranch which raises cattle, corn and alfalfa. This campground is in a field with some interesting rock formations behind. The skies are very dark at night. The Skavdahl’s built the campground for the 2017 solar eclipse and have kept it going ever since.

You can hike in the hills and area all around the campground but watch out for snakes!

We rode our bikes to Agate Fossil Beds and took the Fossil Hills Trail. It’s a great place to visit and the Visitor Center has a very interesting display of beautiful items which Chief Red Cloud gave to James H. Cook.

We will definitely stay here again if we are out this way!

Nice piney campground in the Black Hills

We stayed at Big Pine for 3 nights. It’s 5 minutes from Custer and close enough to drive to many tourist attractions. The road in and sites are gravel, fairly level and easy to back into. Bathhouse is clean with 4 showers and bathrooms. There is a laundry which we did not use. The store is small but has some necessity items. Although just off the highway, we did not have any road noise on Site 66 which was in the back. Most sites look like they have nice shade. We would stay here again.

Peaceful Camping near the Mountains

This is a lovely park about 30 minutes south of Colorado Springs. We camped here for 5 nights in a back in spot with full hookups, site 51. The site was extremely spacious with room to park our truck to the side and still have a big yard. There is a fire pit and picnic table and we were shaded by some big pines. We saw deer wander around the campsites every morning and evening. The sites are terraced so that everyone has a beautiful view. There is no cell service for AT&T or T-Mobile, but you are able to do wifi calling with their WiFi and we streamed a movie one night. From here we visited Garden of the Gods, Royal Gorge and Pike’s Peak, all within 30 minutes to one hour’s drive. The bathhouse is extremely clean, with several private bathroom/shower rooms. There is also a laundry with 4 washers & dryers. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the folks are all friendly. I highly recommend!

Needs some TLC If I could give 3.5 stars I would

We stopped here with our 38’ travel trailer for an overnight on our way north. The ranger at the gate was very friendly and informed us that due to flooding and the lake being 7 feet above normal, all the trails and boat dock were closed.

We had a nice shady site, #224, in Loop G, which was easy to back in to and long enough to leave our rig hooked up. The pad was asphalt and oddly our trailer was perfectly level when we parked.

The park is very overgrown and perhaps due to flooding and recently heavy rains has not been mowed in quite some time. The sites are very private due to lots of overgrown brush between. There was a fire pit and picnic table which we did not use due to a large wet muddy area. There was lots of poison ivy around the trees.

The bathhouse could have used a good cleaning and I was glad we had full hookups and did not need to utilize it.

The park is close to DFW and convenient for a quick stop over.

We had 4 bars reception with AT&T and 2 with T-Mobile and were able to stream in the evening.

This is a very large spacious park, but seems run down and needs lots of attention.

Great Views!

This is a small RV Park at Raton Pass almost to the Colorado border. Situated at the top of a hill, the views here are outstanding. When you arrive you are greeted and escorted to your site and given some parking help if you need it. It seems to be a quick overnight for most people, although we elected to stay 2 nights to do some sightseeing. The sites are close, but who cares when you have this view out your back window? The bathhouse is very clean and opens with a code. I did some laundry, which was $1.25/load. We will definitely stay here again if we come through this way.

Amazing Night Skies!

I love this park! The staff is great and it is very well maintained. The bathhouse is clean. No shade at the RV sites, but each site has a picnic table with a teepee shade structure over it as well as a raised grill. Lots of space between campsites. Our electric/water site #6 in Comanche Campground was long enough to leave our rig hooked up and was easy to back in to.

Unfortunately, I was not able to do any hiking this trip. It was 100 degrees when we arrived and didn’t ‘cool off’ to 85 until 9pm. The trails looked great and I’d love to come back in the late fall or winter and stay a few days to explore. Our AT&T hotspot was able to stream a movie.

Where this park really shines is after the sun goes down. Copper Breaks is an International Dark Sky Park. We were so lucky to have clear skies on our one night stay! I stayed up early into the morning to try my hand at night sky pics and got my first Milky Way picture.

Enjoyed the Hill Country Beauty

Garner is a lovely park and February is a great time to visit if you are there to camp and hike. Our site ended up being too tight for our slides to open fully (because of trees on either side). We ended up having to leave one closed because of a storm that came through at night. Low hanging branches made backing into our site in the dark difficult. We did have a great time hiking along the river and biking the campgrounds and the night sky is beautiful.

Nice spot for an overnight

Spent one night here on our way to Tulsa. Our back-in site was a little tight but manageable. We had to disconnect because it was not long enough for trailer and truck. We parked the truck sideways in the entrance to our site. It had a picnic table and fire ring. The pad was asphalt and had a drop-off on the door side so we had to prop up the stairs. The lake was beautiful and we let the dogs swim. I would stay here again.

Nice Overnight Stay but Beware...

We stayed one night at Martin Creek Park in our travel trailer on our way to the next destination. Site 40 was wooded and very spacious. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring and ours had water and electric. There was a dump station available. The other reviewers mention the ants, but we didn’t have any problems with them. The noise from the power station droned constantly at a low hum but was easy to tune out. We arrived early and I hiked all three trails, which were easy to follow but not that well marked where they crossed. There are some unbelievably tall Loblolly Pines back on the trails - simply amazing! My ‘beware’ is that there is an abundance of Poison Ivy around. So if you are bothered by that be very careful. This was a very nice park and I would stay again for an overnight. Paid $19 a night.

RV Parking in large lot at Fairgrounds

We stayed in our 39’ trailer for AKC National Agility Championship. Very convenient to fairgrounds events. Private bathrooms and showers were clean with code entry. Laundromat was functional and centrally located. Space 719 was just long enough for trailer but we were allowed to park our truck in the space next to it. Wifi was strong where we were parked.

Beautiful Park with great hiking trails

Beautiful park with lots of space between spots and large green belt areas to enjoy. The hiking trails were fun and challenging with not many people and we hiked with our dogs. We stayed in a pull through site in Loop A, Spot 29 with full hookups. It had plenty of room for trailer and truck parking and was pretty level. There was no wifi or cell service for T-Mobile. We rode our bikes to the Visitor Center to access wifi and were able to get cell service at the Mather Lodge overlook. There is a really nice walking / bike trail from the campgrounds to the Mather Lodge. The park is well maintained with clean bathrooms and showers. Trash bins were located throughout the camping area. We will visit here again.

Beautiful RV Park close to Hot Springs

Well kept park on Lake Catherine right outside of Hot Springs. It has a quiet remote feel with easy access to sightseeing in Hot Springs. I spent a day walking around Hot Springs, 3 days hiking trails in Lake Catherine State Park and a day at Garvan Gardens, all a short drive away. The park is immaculate and the grounds crew is really amazing, cleaning every site thoroughly before the next camper arrives. Trash pickup at your site every morning. Bathrooms and showers are very clean and at $1.50 per load the laundromat was one of the least expensive I’ve seen (and the dryers were great!) Wifi was good during the week and we were able to stream movies, except on the busy weekend evening when it bogged down. We had 2 bars cell service with T-Mobile. Check in was easy as was backing into our lake front spot. Would definitely stay here again!
