Senior rate for off season, $8 for any site. Normal rates are $12 for no hookups and go up to $18 for 50 amp. Some of the no hookup sites are huge and on the lake. A few of the 30 amp sites have there own water. The 50 amp sites are all in a row on the left when you come in. Sites are mostly gravel, but some grass sites. Only problem was the number of dogs off lease here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice COE park with large sites and fire ring. There is a playground but no swimming access. There is a laundry, which was very inexpensive: $0.75 for wash and dry. Rt 136 west from Franklin really needs repair; the road from the east is much better. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If this is what Corps of Engineers campgrounds are like, sign me up! The rate reflects an off-season Golden Eagle rate but even at the full rate of $10, you sure can't beat this park. Large pull-throughs, beautiful lake views, peace and quiet. Handicapped accessible restrooms; boat ramp; laundry room; and several playgrounds. My only wish is that they would put some pull-through sites at the east end of the park where the water is. We would most definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Well, it takes a lot to be a Corp of Engineers park ($9 w/62+pass) and each one is better than the last. Paved access, gravel-level sites for big rigs. Room to roam, lake views (some are on the lake) only few water sites, but many w/ele. Quiet, Week ends a bit busier but still room, Relax and watch! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great COE park. There is a loop with full hookup back in sites. All have some shade some have lots of it. Water pressure was good, 50 amp electric was good even on a hot weekend with a full campground. Most sites can be reserved five days in advance. They have about 14 walk up sites that are first come first serve. We were in a walk up site. All are back in with lots of room between sites. Sites are granite gravel, low dust and level. The loop roads are paved. No problem getting a big rig around and into the site. The camp hosts have been coming here for a long time and were great. The lake is very low due to the drought and the boat ramp is closed and you can not access the water from the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed there 2 nights. Beautiful campground, level sites, shade trees, plenty of room and friendly staff. Convenient to trips to Kearney Archway, Willa Cather childhood home and Minden Pioneer Village. We would definitely stay there again. We used our golden age pass for this great rate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really liked this campground. One loop has full hookups -- unusual for public campgrounds. The downside is that less than half are nonreservable. We came in on a Sunday afternoon & had our choice of 5, but found one that worked great. There are lots of big trees in the campground, but we managed to get our rooftop satellite aimed over the top of a smaller one. The sites are huge, and back up to a common area. The camphosts are wonderful people; they've been working at this park for 14 years. We paid for a week, but had to leave 3 days early due to a death in the family. We were given a voucher for those 3 days, that's good for a year. We would definitely return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice campground with lots of shade & space between the. sites. We made our reservations on short notice so we missed out on one of the FHU sites but the showers were clean. Great paved trail into the charming little town of Alma. We visited on Saturday & were happy to see a Farmers Market with fresh vegetables, eggs, baked goods etc... The town had everything we needed including a coffee shop! We truly hope to be able to visit Alma again & would absolutely stay at Methodist Cove COE. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate is based on national senior pass. Highest rate we've seen at a COE park. FHU is $24 without discount, but still a bargain. Park is actually in Alma NE, about 6 miles from Republican City. They have a nice visitor center at the Corp office in Republican City; a short drive over from Methodist Cove. Lake was low, but most campsites have good view. Power was steady, but water pressure was rather low. One loop (84-116) is FHU; others vary between primitive, and electric or water only. Camp hosts were friendly, didn’t see any other park staff, but local sheriff drove through occasionally. Sites are well spaced, plenty of room and most appear fairly level. Fire pits are not cleaned between campers; we had to shovel ours out just to use it. No Wi-Fi here, but our Verizon card worked fine on 3G. Grass was very high when we arrived, but was cut the day before we left. Most sites have wooden picnic tables that are showing some age. They have a boat launch and a playground. Park was quiet. We would visit here again We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park recently upgraded 33 sites to 20/30/50 amp FHU. Beautifully maintained area, lake view with less then a minute walk to lake from our site (#100). Paved roads with gravel sites. Sites have fire rings and picnic tables. Treed so had to use portable auto satellite receiver. Excellent Verizon phone and air card service. Our GPS took us out Hwy 136, just use W. South Street out of Alma. 9 hole municipal golf course in Alma. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Located on Harlan County Lake, just a few miles east of Alma, Nebraska. Another great COE Campground with 30amp electricity at each site. With our 62+ Pass, our cost was $8.00. Huge sites with lots of room between each site. Well kept campground. We camped midweek and it was very quiet, only about 15% occupied. Will definitely stay here again!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful Corps of Engineers campground. There are plenty of trees, large, level sites and friendly camp hosts. There has been such a drought for the past 6 years that the lake is down by 20 feet but the campground is still a great place to stay. If you are camping with children, there is a very nice playground and lots of room for them to run, ride bikes, etc. We camped here in a Motorhome.
