“Nice wooded area with lots of activities, close to Omaha”

Reviewed May 17, 2018

Overall Rating

The price reflects a $22/day camping fee plus a daily use fee of $8/day for non-Nebraska vehicles. There are two campgrounds in the park, and these comments relate to Little Creek, the larger campground. The sites are all paved, quite level, back in and electric only, mostly 30 amp with a few 50 amp. The reservable sites (1-43) are a little more open while sites with higher numbers are in a slightly more wooded area. Site separation is very good, though as you might expect the sites on the outside of the loops and particularly at the end of the loop have the best privacy. We really enjoyed site 27, especially since it has a very easy angle of approach from the loop. NOTE: Camping check in is at the main administrative building, not the small entry hut, but we were told that because we had reserved and paid online it wasn't even necessary to check in.

The bathhouse was relatively large (4 showers in men's and women's rooms) but really dated and musty. I was pleasantly surprised by the warm water (but not too hot) and good flow time on the push-button showers. There is a double dump station along the road between the entry and the campgrounds, with easy access to water and dumping on the way in or out.

The wildlife in the park is great. We saw turkeys, deer, fox squirrels, and many different birds every day. The park offers many activities including horseback riding, fishing, several playgrounds, walking trails, and even a restaurant. It is very nicely wooded and hilly, with streams and lakes throughout, so definitely not what I expected to find in Nebraska.

The campgrounds are close to I-80, and there is quite a bit of road noise during the day; at night it quieted down a lot. There is not much in the immediate vicinity other than the Strategic Air Command museum -- which is well worth a visit -- but Omaha's big stores are within a 30 minute drive. Overall we really liked the park; my only dings are the road noise, the relative isolation, and the very grungy bathhouse.

“Decent state park outside of Omaha”

Reviewed Mar 28, 2015

Overall Rating

Not a bad state park outside of Omaha (towards Lincoln). Awesome access to the Strategic Air Command museum, which is right outside the park entrance.

Electric only campsites with water and dump station available on site. Sites available on a couple of loops. I stayed in the Little Creek Campground.

Price is $22 per night + $5 per vehicle, so with my Jeep and trailer I paid $27/night.

A bit of noise heard from nearby I-80.

Was nice to ride the bike around the park and climb up the observation tower.

There are horses on site, but they frown upon you feeding them. Go figure!
