“Easy stop traveling Hwy 80”

Reviewed Nov 09, 2017

Overall Rating

This campground was a very quiet (only 1 other RV in the whole place) and easy stop for us as we were traveling on Hwy 80. It's about 6 miles off the highway. Not much around here. The bathrooms were closed for winter so we can't comment on them. Our site was a huge pull through and perfectly level. We had electric hook up only. Our kids enjoyed the small playground there.

“An excellent overnight spot when traveling I-80 through Nebraska”

Reviewed Aug 06, 2016

Overall Rating

We were looking for a no reservation site in a peaceful place that was close to I-80 but far enough that we wouldn't be bothered with highway noise. This is it! About 10 miles off the expressway. We stayed in one of the many tent sites (no W/E) that are plenty big for RVs.

The rate shown is for a tent site which has no water, no electric and no sewer and includes a $5 daily fee for the tow vehicle. W/E sites for RVs are available for a few dollars more but they were all booked up and are pretty close together (this is not a particularly attractive state campground and I would say that the RV sites are unremarkable compared to some of the better state parks we've seen around the country.) But the tent sites are in a different section and are much more spacious. We lucked into what I thought was the best site and it was easily a half acre!

Verizon data was weak here. Don't expect to stream video but it was adequate for email and some light web surfing.
