Country View Campground, Ogallala, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Overnight stop as I make my way home from Alaska. Chosen due to great reviews, and it didn't disappoint. Easy to find, office is towards back of park. Friendly staff; escorted to my site and assisted in terms of positioning (I travel alone, so that was great). Long pull thru on gravel; plenty of room even unhooked. No issues with hookups. Was hot and humid; no issues with electric. Some trees. Sites are somewhat close, but after spending the summer in Alaskan parks, I have no complaints. I didn't use laundry or restrooms. Told there was a book exchange that was very popular. Quiet night overall and would return without any hesitation. Highly recommended. We camped at Country View Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff recommended Open Range Grill in town; they use locally sourced beef. It was AMAZING. One of the best burgers I've ever had. Wish I lived closer, as I would drive several hours to eat there. Absolutely must try if you like burgers. I fueled at the TA next to the freeway when I was leaving the next morning. Used the truck lanes since I was hitched up. Busy place, but convenient.

Prairie Oasis Campground and Cabins, Henderson, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

I picked this park for an overnight as I make the long drive home from Alaska, and it was a winner! I could tell just driving in that it was well taken care of. I did not get a discount, as I let my Good Sam membership expire last year. Still pretty cheap rates for FHU. Very friendly owners. Guided to my long pull thru site; he said he tries to alternate sites for us on weeknights when they aren't very full for the most privacy. It was hot when I arrived, but had thunderstorms develop overnight. My gravel site was level; all hookups easily reached. Storm shelter on site if needed (I appreciate that as a fellow Midwesterner), has pond with free use of paddleboats. Didn't use restrooms, but told they have recently been renovated. I really liked this park and wouldn't hesitate to return. Highly recommended. And a free homemade cookie at registration! We camped at Prairie Oasis Campground and Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

I went to York for dinner; it's just 15 minutes or so east on I-80. Went to The Kitchen; was great service and meal. There is a Walmart there, very convenient. Fueled as I was leaving next morning at the Henderson Fuel Stop which had the cheapest diesel around. Truck lanes weren't full and was easy in and out.

Walnut Ridge RV Park, New Castle, Indiana

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

I'm on a seasonal site here at Walnut Ridge. It's about an hour from my house, and my sister and brother in law also come out and camp--our schedules are different enough that we rarely overlap. Therefore, it's perfect for us.

Walnut Ridge the campground pre-dates the RV dealership of the same name. Apparently, once Gary Hart bought the campground way back when, they ended up selling a few campers here and there and the idea for the RV dealership was born. Most people know of the dealership first--it is a very busy place these days. There is a service center as well. If you buy from the dealership, you can spend 2 free days camping at the campground. It's a nice way to become familiar with your new purchase.

I did buy from Walnut Ridge, but I'd no idea at the time where I was going to store it. When I saw the campground and learned I could keep my new TT on a seasonal site for about the same price as paying for yearly storage, I was sold.

I love camping here. Having ready access to my trailer without having to move it is nice. It's a very quiet campground, with lots of friendly people. The grounds are kept very clean and they have lots of activities. There's mini golf, a playground and a very nice pool. The store sells ice cream. WiFi is very good. I love the trees and the birds, though not too fond of the squirrels and their destructive ways.

There are pull-through sites for temporary visitors, which I've used. I can pull my trailer out to go places, and find the roads and paths to be well kept. There aren't any poorly kept sites to be seen.

My sole complaint is the lack of sewer hookup, but I recognize that it's impossible given the hills of the place. They do offer a pump service, but I got my own honeywagon and empty that way. It's not bad. They treat you like family here, and I love it. We camped at Walnut Ridge RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Burdette Park, Evansville, Indiana

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Have to go to Evansville for work periodically, and decided to bring trailer. Burdette Park was one of very few campgrounds close enough to my work. I had problems getting to park--roads are tight. Once there, no one was at campground entrance to check in with--I'd called and made reservations. Was told to find someone in Site 17. Once I did, she said to park in any of the sites in the first two rows--all were just water and electric. The full hookup sites are taken up with what seems like more seasonal or monthly campers. It's a bit tight going past them, as a lot of them have large trucks parked near the road.

All sites are pull-through. Had 50 amp for my site. Water up a slight hill to share with site above me. Some tent campers in primitive sites. Lots of large fifth wheels and several big motorhomes there as well.

Pretty quiet at night. Lots of crickets and frogs. Can hear trains through the night, as there are tracks nearby. Some noise in morning as people get up and go to work. I spent 4 nights there. Never used shower house, so no idea what it's like. Dump station on exit seems very tight, so didn't try it.

One odd thing, was that I'd never paid. So, morning of my departure, I had to hunt down the woman in Site 17. She said to use a credit card I'd have to go to main building of park--but I was already hooked up and had pulled out of site. I ended up giving her some cash--what I had, and certainly not enough for entire stay. She was very nonchalant about the whole transaction. We camped at Burdette Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Plan your route to park well before you go, and don't just follow Google maps like I did. I highly regretted the original route it took me, though I made it.

It rained/stormed heavily while I was there. Some mud.

I was there out of season for the pool. No kids at any of the sites that I ever saw. Imagine it was due to the time of year.

Charlestown State Park, Charlestown, Indiana

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

I LOVE this campground. Full hookups, many sites are quite private. Spent about 10 days here, and weekends were more popular--but there were still many empty spots. Weekdays? It was just me and a few others. Really quiet, peaceful, interesting park. Camp hosts were very friendly.

I have a 35 foot travel trailer and did happen to pick a site that was a bit tough to back into due to the electric grid across from it. However, I got into it and loved my spot for it's amazing privacy. Literally couldn't see the people next to me, if any had been there, nor the people behind at all, as they are separated from the rest by very large expanse as well as lots of foliage. If you were to pick an electric only site, you'd have even more privacy as I only saw like 3 or 4 of those used at all. I'll definitely be coming back to this campground.

There's a big boat ramp on the Ohio in this park.

Lots of hiking.

Can only ride bikes in the campground--not allowed in the rest of the park.
