Rate posted is the base rate for 50 amp service for two adults plus 3 children (including 1 1/2 year old). It looks like this park was the attempt of the owner of the shop next door to add some income to his property (the shop and park is along I-29 1 mile off the nearest paved road). You pay using an envelope and drop box system. We chose this site because if its proximity to Council Bluffs and it offered free Wi-Fi. The previous review stated the Wi-Fi was spotty. I tried three different devices and was unable to get any of them online at all. Pros: The sites are wide (25-30 feet). The park is not crowded (except apparently during the Ragnar race). The playground has a toys as well as a wooden play set. The owner did call to notify us that the train crossing leading into the park was being worked on, and when it was finished the day we arrived. You get to choose your own site. Cons: There is no onsite office. The sites were not very level (3 inch difference from side to side in the spot we chose.) The printed card that is in the box where the envelopes are kept have no more information than the website has (it does not even tell you the SSID for the Wi-Fi signal). Despite picking the closest site that fit our rig in direct line-of-sight of the wireless antenna, we could not get a connection. I would not recommend the park unless it is your only choice.

The rate posted is Credit Card payment with no discounts including 2 extra people (children above 5) and including tax. We stayed overnight in one of the "BIG Rig" sites. These are LONG. The Wi-Fi was sufficient to get work done over VPN. The sites are grassy sites. The kids liked chasing the wild rabbits about. Very gracious hosts voluntarily changed our assigned spot to one further from the main road when she saw we had kids. We did not notice any activity from the Bar on site. Well worth the extra 10-13 mile trip into Cheyenne. We wish we could have stayed longer to sample more of the amenities.

The rate posted is for Credit Card payment with no discounts including tax ($36 before tax). We stayed overnight on our way to MO, saw that it is the only one in town that offered Wi-Fi. Being a web professional, I needed to use the Wi-Fi for work, so we reserved a site. Unfortunately, the park's Internet provider, Matrix, was having DNS trouble. It took 10 tries to log into their own network without timeouts, and 20 minutes and 25 tries to establish a VPN connection back to my work. Once that VPN connection was established (this makes my work provide DNS service instead of the park's provider), my Internet connection worked beautifully. Because I was relying on the Wi-Fi to do work, I rated the park much lower than I would have. Another problem we had is that the 30 amp site we had had the sewer connection about 20-25 feet behind the water/electric connections. Because of the length of our fifth wheel, this made us not be able to connect up the sewer hose at the same time we had the electricity hooked up. Despite these two major problems, the park was nice, shady and quiet compared to the proximity to the freeway. We will only stay here again if only for an overnight stay because of the sewer line problem.
