“Really nice park”

I was a bit amazed at this park.  Lots of trees provided really great shade (although the weather turned on us and we didn't need shade).  Very picturesque.  Down side was the restrooms (a little bit on the grungy side) and the showers (you had to pay for them).  Otherwise, a good campground.  Would definitely stay there again.  Lots to do if you have family, both in the park and in the Kearney area.

“Our stay”

“Nice overnight spot”

Great spot for a quick overnight stay. Not far off the interstate and worth the effort. Large sites with shade.  Bathroom was clean and there are pay showers. Adjoining rail to trail path to the Platte River is great for stretching your legs after a long day in the car. 

“Absolutely Beautiful”

Nestled along the river, this sight offers 5 miles of walking trails. There's plenty of crane watching and nature to see. There is also the fort which allows you to see what life was like along the trails west. Far enough from the interstate to be quiet and peaceful but close enough to keep you on your journey. Give this spot a try.

“Good overnight stay”

This campground is quiet and good for an overnight.  It has electric only.  There was a pump for water, and a regular faucet near a group shelter.  There was a dump station.  Some sites are nicely shaded.  The sites cost $20 with electric, which seemed a bit high.  We enjoyed the fireflies at dusk from the inside of the camper.  The Mosquitos were prevalent.

“Beware of dogs”

Remarkably good park.  But you WILL encounter loose dogs, against which you must be prepared to defend yourself.  Leash laws are not enforced here.
