18 spots, all taken. Looks like there are some permanent or semi-permanent campers. Very small, no amenities. OK for locals who can drive over and snag a spot. Do not count on it if you are passing through. Also, there is an underpass with 11 foot clearance. Neither Google maps nor Waze warns you about it. Sorry I wasted my time checking it out. It sounds cute on the web but failed to meet expectations in real life. We camped at Hitchcock Nature Center in a Fifth Wheel.

What a great place for a nice price. This is a rather pretty area with rolling hills. Sites are level with 50 amp service available. Very little shade at any of the sites. Fairly close to Council Bluffs, IA. we stayed here in a 40' motorhome. We camped at Hitchcock Nature Center in a Motorhome.

Very nice park, nice friendly staff. Showers could be better for privacy and no full hook-ups are the only downsides. We would stay again. We camped at Hitchcock Nature Center in a Fifth Wheel.

Great county park, hiking, nature center, great staff. Only reason to not give it a 10 is not full hookup. We camped at Hitchcock Nature Center in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

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. We camped at Hitchcock Nature Center in a Fifth Wheel.
