Today’s AllCampgrounds continues our rambling journey around Nebraska, building momentum on our quest to check out just about all campsites worth visiting.

Today we take to the trails with our friends in the RV lifestyle, looking at some of the top RV parks and campgrounds throughout the state.

There are quite a few, as you’d expect from a place where steppes and plains are still treasured and there to be enjoyed for all campers!

Holiday RV Park: Calling itself the “finest camping facility in Nebraska”, Holiday is serious about providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere. With 100 full-sized, grassy pull-through sites, you’ll be “made in the shade” at most (though not all) campsites here. There’s also clean restrooms and laundry facilities to use. A beautiful pool provides recreational opportunities, and you can enjoy free Wi-Fi on its decks or anywhere else around the camp grounds. A nice, straightforward place to be with some very affordable rates, located convenient to great fairs and attractions.

Chimney Rock Pioneer Crossing: A little slice of Nebraska’s wild pioneer history is here for your enjoyment, right on the way to the famous Chimney Rock, which marked the way west for adventurous travelers on the historic Oregon Trail. Just south of Bayard, this place offers plenty of full hookup, pull-through RV sites serviced by a fishing pond and “trading post” full of souvenirs the whole family will love. For a unique rustic experience, check out the tipi rentals! Tent camping is also welcome here.

Eagle Canyon Hideaway: Found on the shores of inviting Lake Conaughy, Eagle Canyon is a wonderland for fishing enthusiasts and hunters alike. The wildlife inhabiting this pristine lakefront and its nature trails reads like a laundry list of the most impressive game in the region: the lake itself is home to bass, trout, catfish, and many more, while the trails are known for a variety of fowl as well as the local deer. There’s a whole slew of interesting features and amenities here, so take a look – it’s not every day you see an RV park that’s also famous for its New York-style pizza and smothered burritos!

Fort McPherson Campground: Hidden just out of reach of I-80 near Maxwell, Nebraska, you’ll never know you’re so close to home at this quaint, yet full-service camp. Offering a playground, lodge, and cabins, McPherson is known to be friendly to your equine companions. Naturally, you’ll also find the ol’ standby features of most modern camp grounds, including wireless internet, coin-operated laundry, and a quality bathhouse with plenty of hot water to serve as your “camping bathroom.” True to life, the Fort McPherson Campground stands right on the historic site of its namesake fort.
