A beautiful city park which includes a sports complex, pool and horseshoe pits among other things. The park is so big it's a little hard to find the camping area. The campsites are between the horse shoe pits and the maintenance shop, next to the tennis/basketball court. Some sites are shaded and all sites are in the grass. Workers are friendly and offer to help if needed. We would stay here again if in the area.
There are lots of trees in this campground, so not much sun gets through in the daytime and you won’t get reception on your satellite TV. The sites on the outside of the campground loops are large, but the inner loop sites are a bit cramped. Also, if there is a lot of rain, several of the sites on the outside loop become flooded. The campground is on Leech Lake and there are two mooring harbors for boats, so if you are staying several days, there is no need to take your boat out of the water every night. Our rate reflects our Senior Pass discount.
Cunningham Lake is a surprisingly quiet park on the far north side of Omaha. We stayed here during the College World Series and were amazed at how peaceful it was. All the sites are large and several of them are pull-through. One great surprise - which isn’t posted anywhere in the park – is that the City of Omaha, which runs the campground, honors the Golden Age/Senior Pass discount you get in the Federal Parks. Just put your pass number on the pay envelope and pay the discounted fee. This is a cash only park, so make sure you have correct change to put in your pay envelope. We will definitely camp here again. Our rate reflects our Senior Pass discount.
This is a great little campground near the Omaha (NE) metropolitan area. There are lots of hiking trails in the park and a neat little museum in the visitors center. The sites are roomy with lots of elbow room. The park rangers are very friendly and make sure all campers know about the activities in the Nature Center. They also take the time to visit and answer questions about other attractions in the area. The Nature Center is not far from the interstate, so you have easy access to Omaha and to the casinos in Council Bluffs IA). We will stay here again if we are in the area.
This was a very disappointing COE campground and we probably won’t stay here again. For starters, the volunteers insisted on assigning us a spot instead of letting us choose our own (like we do in all other COE campgrounds). As a result, we got a small spot with very little space for being outside. Luckily, no one came in on the site next to us, so that helped. In the morning, we were awakened by the sound of lawn mowers. We thought surely we’d slept in, but soon found out it was only 7 a.m. When we asked the host about it, he said quiet time ended at 7 a.m. and the contractors always started mowing that early. Needless to say, we can’t recommend this campground, especially when there are several others from which to choose in the area. Price reflects our Senior Pass Discount.
Nice, quiet campground not far from Great Falls. The staff is really friendly and go out of their way to help. Site size was ample. We had a grass pad with plenty of room for our dog to have some time outside. Some sites are rock. All sites are level. Apparently, they only use the grass pads when the rock pads are full. We were told they usually only fill up in August when harvest is on. We will stay here again. We camped in a 5th wheel. Rate reflects our PA discount
This park has potential but there are cats and some dogs running free and they made our stay very unhappy. Our dog doesn't like cats, so we had to battle constantly to keep her quiet. Sitting outside in the cool evening air was a nightmare because of all the animals running free. The other big issue was the Wi-Fi. You could log on, but it wasn't long before you got dropped. It made working on the Internet rather hard. On the plus side, our site was great - very level and it had fresh rock on it. There was quite a bit of space between us and our neighbor, too. The lady in the office is terrific - very friendly and helpful.
Sites in this park are ample, but the loops are a little tight for larger rigs. Our site was also not very level. There is a paved bike/walking path alongside the campground which was nice. Our site was up on the hill with a good view of the lake, but you can also get waterfront sites. Staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed here in a 5th wheel.
This is a good location for exploring the Badlands and visiting the Minuteman Missile National monument. The park is old and the pull-through sites are side-by-side, but it isn’t a problem if you are going to be gone all day. The swimming pool was clean and offered a refreshing oasis at the end of a hot summer day. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It’s right on the Interstate, but there wasn’t any road noise to keep you awake at night. The rate reflects our Good Sam discount.
This is an excellent COE park with a wide variety of services and lots of activities. The volunteers are very friendly and helpful and seem to enjoy what they're doing. Sites are very large and there are lots of options like waterfront, water view, hilltop, etc. We camped here on a weekend, but it was nice and quiet even though the park was full.
This city park has is a great place to spend a night or a few days. The area is very well maintained with lots of grass, clean fire pits, etc. Sites are adequate, but not overly large. There is a tree on every site. We will definitely camp here again if we're in the area.
This park has lots of bike trails and you can spend hours exploring them. There are plenty of other activities, too, like boating, swimming, etc. The campsites are large and your neighbors aren't too close. I have to applaud the staff at this park as they do enforce the rules. Even campers who parked their cars on the grass were asked to move them to a designated parking area. This campground will be our place to stay whenever we come to the Twin Cities. We camped here in a 5th wheel.
Good COE park for folks who want to fish. They have good boat ramps and boats can be tied up on shore if desired. All campsites are big and allow plenty of space between you and your neighbors. Park staff is excellent. Rangers drive through the campground several times a day and are always available to answer questions and assist in any way they can.
This is a quiet, peaceful park on the shores of Lake Oahe. You can practically have the park to yourself during the week. The park fills up on weekends, but is still pretty quiet. The boat launch facilities are very good and well-maintained, as is the rest of the park. All sites are large and there is plenty of space between you and your neighbor. This was our first time in the campground, but it won't be the last. Rate reflects our Senior Pass discount. We stayed here in a fifth wheel.
A really nice park near the Big Sioux River. We found it by accident and are glad we did. The sites were big, the campground was quiet and the surroundings were very peaceful. Added bonus was the baseball game that was played one night. We enjoyed the free entertainment. We will definitely camp here again if we are in the area.
This is a terrific city park and the price is an added plus. Sites are spacious and well-maintained. They have planted trees on every site, but they aren't quite big enough to provide shade yet. Each site also has a picnic table and a trash can. We always stay here when traveling through Nebraska and find ourselves near West Point.
This is a standard city park campground. Sites are side by side and space is tight if another camper pulls in next to you. On the plus side, the grass is thick and you don't have to worry about tracking in a lot of mud if it rains. Also, if you are hungry, try getting a sandwich at the café at the golf course. It's open to the public and while the menu is mostly sandwiches, fries, etc., the food is good. We will stay here again if we find ourselves in Pembina.
This park is well-maintained (grass mowed, trees trimmed, etc.) with lots of space outside of the campground loops. The campground loops; however, are in a small space and maneuvering within them can be difficult. There is a narrow, two-way road through each loop and no where to go if you meet another driver on the road. The sites themselves are adequate. The paid staff was not very friendly, but the host greeted us immediately and even had treats for our dog. He was terrific. Showers were clean and the water warm (not hot). It's good for overnight, but I wouldn't want to spend much more than that here.
In the Chippewa National Forest, this campground is very peaceful and quiet. The smell of pine is definitely in the air. Our site was in the non-reservable loop and it was huge. Some of the sites in the reservable loops were tight and getting into them might be difficult because of the trees. This isn't the place for you if you have to have electricity. There is only 15 amp service, so using the microwave, hair dryer, etc. is iffy, but if you just want lights and TV, this place is great. We will definitely stay here again. The rate reflects our Senior Pass discount.
This is another fine COE park, if you camp in the north loop. The campsites are large and well maintained. The south loop is rather cramped and the sites that back up to the water are very short. That area also has no maneuvering room for backing into the sites. We stayed in the north loop and loved it. All staff, whether paid or volunteer, were friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again in the north campground. Our rate reflects our Senior Pass discount.
This is a good campground if you just want to park for the night or nights while you are busy elsewhere. It's really just a parking lot that was set up with hookups for campers. The good news is that you get both water and electricity. It's also cheaper than the nearby state park and there is usually a site available.
This is one of our favorite city campgrounds. We stop here whenever we are in the area. Sites are spacious and the whole complex is very well maintained. The only caveat is that the park is full on weekends when there is either a softball or soccer tournament going on.
This is a good campground for the non-summer months. There isn't much shade in the campground, so it could be rather hot there in June, July and August. There are 2 areas with electrical sites. In the newer area, the sites have cement pads and are good sized. In the older area, the pads are gravel and some of the sites are rather cramped. We would stay here again if we were passing through the area. Our rate reflects the Senior Pass discount. We camped here in a 5th will.
Very nice park. We had a large pull through site with a lot of room to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful views. There is a pool and a gym, plus daily/weekly activities if you want to join in. We stayed with 2 other couples and all of us really enjoyed the campground and would stay here again. Our rate reflects the Passport America discount.
This is an excellent COE park. Most sights are very spacious and there is plenty of room to spread out and relax. The park is very clean. Trash is removed every day and the fire rings are kept clean. For boaters using Leech Lake, there is also a private boat ramp and dock for use by campers in the park. The is also a mooring area where boats can be tied up during the day and overnight if you choose. Our rate reflects our Senior Pass usage.
This is a great city park with lots of grass and room to enjoy yourself. The only negative is the train tracks adjacent to the park. The tracks carry a lot of traffic, but you get used to it. There is a lot less traffic overnight. We will definitely stay here again.
This is one of the best COE campgrounds I've ever been in. The staff (volunteer & paid) is excellent. All are very friendly and know their business. Campground and showers/bathrooms are very well maintained. Sites are good sizes. Each site has a large gravel area with picnic table. There are also great bicycle paths in the area. You can ride your bike all the way to Yankton if you want to. We will definitely come back again. Our rate reflects half off for the Senior Pass.
The park is well-maintained and most every site has shade. The biggest problem is the steady stream of apartment dwellers from outside the park who walk through the campsites with dogs, kids, etc. to get to other parts of the park. Also, some of the sites are a bit short, but others are large enough for our truck, 5th wheel and boat. We would stay here again if we were in the area.
Extra big sites at this park. Laundry room is large with good machines and it's clean. Rate is Passport America. You can stay here up to 3 nights every 6 months at the PA rate according to the gal who checked us in. Drawbacks with this park - it's quite a drive to shopping, etc. and we had no cell coverage on either ATT or Sprint networks.
This is a good RV park to stay at if you are passing through the area. Laundry facilities are very good. Newer machines and laundry room is very clean. It's very quiet at night, even though this is behind a truck stop.
Great campground! Stayed here 6 nights on Passport America rate. Originally planned to stay only 4 nights, but the place was so nice and the staff and other campers so friendly, we extended our stay. Sites are very big, plenty of room to sit outside at night and enjoy the outdoors. One of the owners made sure we knew what events were planned while we were there and encouraged us to attend. We went to pizza night and the bonfire/hot dog feed.
Stayed here 2 nights at Passport America rate (actually, $10.75) It was okay for a couple of nights, but sites weren't very big. Other campers and staff were okay, but didn't talk much. Price was very good, though, and we'd stay there again if we were passing through Benson.
