Overall Rating

We were in transit from South Dakota to Colorado and noticed Box Butte State Rec Area on the atlas. What a pleasant surprise this park was nestled amongst Nebraska's farmland. It was the day after Labor Day and we practically had the place to ourselves. There are 15 electric sites (30 amp - $15) and 10 primitive ($10). There is also a $5 daily Nebraska State Park fee bringing our total nightly cost to $20. We saw no rangers or camp host and the fee works on an honor system.
The lake is pretty and appears to be a popular spot with anglers. We found sites 1-7 to be the most level and accessible to any size RV. Site 1 is paved and appears handicap accessible but wasn't officially noted as such. We loved the dark skies and complete silence.... well except for the crickets and cow mooing. This is a great place to hide and get some work done.
