“Will do in a pinch”

Reviewed Nov 01, 2017

Overall Rating

We ended up here because the very inexpensive Cody Park was closed. Here you pay for camping plus the day use fee which is $8 for out of towners. The campground is pretty cut and dry but it is nice and well maintained. It’ll do in a pinch but it seems overpriced at the $22 it cost us. There is electric but no water or sewer and no dump... more

Overall Rating

“Basic camping. Good place to stop for a night.”

Reviewed Mar 11, 2015

Overall Rating

Basic campground in North Platte, NE. Electric only sites with no water or dump station on site. Well, there is water, but only at a couple of sites and when I was there, the rigs at those sites had water hoses hooked up to them. So, essentially, there was no water for me. Which is why one always carries a bit of water in the tank, rig... more

Reviewed Jan 11, 2015

Overall Rating

Located an easy drive north of the historic town of North Platte. Wild Bill tried to settle here and built a beautiful home within view of the C/G located on a branch of the Platte river. Nice sites with elec. Quiet here on the edge of town altho you do get some fishermen here. North Platte was a train stop for WWII troop movements ... more
