Can anyone recommend a campground along I-80 in Iowa & Nabraska? We've looked at the reviews for the KOA in West Liberty, IA, and they didn't sound too promising. What about the RV park In Kellogg? Can you make reservations or just drive in? Also, need info about campgrounds in Nebraska, particularly from Gothenburg on west to the I-76 spur to Denver. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks in advance to all who reply.

We stopped for an overnighter in Kearney, NE. I posted a review about it at RVParkReviews.com in 2004.

Nothing fancy, but for an overnighter it worked out nice and was easy to get to from I-80. Tons of food and fueling options in the area.

Try the Double Nickel, at the Waco, Nebraska interchange on I-80. Nothing fancy, just a nice, clean campground. RZ

From our cg log:
Quote:

IA; Adele; West DesMoines KOA; I-80,Exit 106 - about 20 miles west of DesMoines; Full h/u. Long gravel p/t. Level front to back but good side to side slope. Side to side p/t. Ok if no neighbor, otherwise too narrow for triple slide unless you park on grass which makes side to side slope even worse. Otherwise nice park. Pool. Typical KOA – overpriced for what you get. $31/nite (2003)
Quote:

IA; Altoona (Des Moines); Adventureland CG; 515-265-7384; Off Exit 142A, I80; Many pull thrus. Level and paved. Near Prarie Meadows Race Track & Casino; nice landscaping
Quote:

IA; Council Bluffs; Bluffs Run RV Park; ON EDIT - Reported Closed
Quote:

IA; Davenport; Interstate RV Park; 563-386-7292; Exit 292 I-80 - Northwest side of Davenport; Nice park. Good long pull thrus. Grassy. Level gravel sites; ofc modem; nice laundry. Quiet. Sites up front are nicest. Site 14 is at the end and has nice grass. Owner is a little up tight.
Quote:

IA; Newton (DesMoines); Rolling Acres Family CG; 877-792-2428; 1601 E. 36th St., Newton IA (Exit 168 – I80); OK CG for overnight, Long gravel level p/ts with full h/us. Free DSL internet access; Small laundry. Pool. Sites close to and below X-way so there plenty of road noise during the day. $21/nite (2004)
Quote:

IA; Oxford; Sleepy Hollow RV Park; 319 828 4900; 3340 Blackhawk Ave 52322; Very nice cg on little lake. Terraced sites surround lake. Modum h/u in office. Near Amana Colonies. Many sites are a little short. Sites A44; A45 and B50 are OK
Quote:

NE; Lincoln Camp A Way; 866-719-CAMP; 200 Ogden Rd, 68621 Exit 1 off I-180; Delightful CG. One of the nicest cgs we’ve stayed at that remains looking like a treed cg rather than a landscaped resort. Good, long, level gravel p/ts with full h/u incl cable. 3 sites have instant phones (D7); nice laundry; pool and spa. Close to Interstate but noise is muted. $26 (w/phone) and $24 (w/o) 2003 & 2004
Quote:

NE; Minden; Pioneer Village CG; 800-445-4447; exit 279 off of I 80 & south 10 miles; This museum is fabulous, & needs at minimum 3 days. The RV park has several pull-thru, full hookups, $24/first night $15 additional nights. Central modem h/u.It is shaded, has tables, grass, is very pleasant & is connected to the Pioneer Village. With the camping fee, you get one free pass to Harold Warp Pioneer Village. Admission fee $8.50. Each night you can get a overnight pass so it is free the next day. The restaurant has good food & is reasonably priced. This is NOT a tourist trap, prices are overly reasonable. It is a history of our country since 1830, & before. (2003)
Quote:

NE; North Platte; Holiday Park; 800-424-4531; Frontage Rd off Exit 177; I-80; Good pull thru full h/u sites. Central modem. Decent Laundry. $25/nite (2004)
Quote:

NE; Ogallala; Meyer Camper Court; 120 Rd E 80 - South of Exit 126 I-80; Long pull-thrus w/ full h/u. $20./ nite. Modem h/u in laundry (?) room. Not much of a laundry room. About 8 miles north of I-80 is large dammed lake with many sandy beaches.

We never make reservations including holidays. However we quit driving by 1 pm and hunker into a cg at least one day before the holiday beginning.

Cabela's in Sidney, NE (right on I-80) has an excellent campground for an overnight stop. Mostly long level gravel pull-throughs, full hookups, 50A, good cable tv, open for satellite. And of course the Cabela's store for some "entertainment" if you want. It's wide open though. No trees and no real ambience.

Slightly off topic but I believe there are RV sites near Minden, NE. Be sure to see the Pioneer Museum in Minden. Plan on a full day to truly appreciate just how rough our pioneer forefathers had it.

We have stayed at several along that route. The KOA in West Liberty is not too bad, considering it's behind a motel & gas station right along I-80! The bathrooms at Sleepy Hollow CG in Oxford, IA were old, not all that clean, and with little privacy; I didn't like it. Not a lot of good choices through much of Iowa, I'm afraid. The KOA west of Des Moines was ok, very narrow sites but clean and out in the country, without as much road noise as you often get in such CGs.

In Nebraska we've stayed at the state wayside park at Mormon Island, near Grand Island. Not bad, reservations not needed if you arrive by mid-afternoon; elec. hookups and showers available. Right along the interstate, though, so it's noisy. You'll have road noise problems in the KOAs at Grand Island and Gothenburg, but they are likely to be a bit cleaner than the state facilities, and have full hookups. Again, if you stop early enough in the day, you probably won't need reservations; I'm a planner, so I always call ahead to reserve a site, just in case.

Howdy,

I second the Double Nickel in Ne, Nice flat campground. My kids enjoyed it. The holiday park in North Platte is clean too and if you like Harleys the store is next door to the CG. Good Steakhouse within walking distance. I believe someone posted on the Bluffs run campground, I think it closed.
Mahoney State Park is awesome.

Have fun,
Nancy
