Sites 1 through 8 are full hookups with 50 amp. The rest of the sites are 30 or 50 amp boxes spread out around the campground. Half of the sites are on the reservation system the other half is first come. Had a problem finding a site where the power was working. Sites are pretty level, paved sites and interior road. Water spigots are spread out among the sites here and there. Verizon Aircard and cellphone had a signal and we had no problems getting our satellite in since the trees are small. There's a Safeway in Ogallala where you can load up otherwise you'll have to drive back into town. Electric sites are $17.00 a night and and they charge another $4.00 per vehicle per day so if you plan on staying 4 or more days buy their annual passes at the Visitor Center or at Martin's kiosk. (Annual pass for first vehicle is $20.00 and the 2nd vehicle is $10.00). For a daily pass it's $4.00 per vehicle per day. Campground Host can sell you the Daily Pass. We would probably stay here again if passing through. - jannie5

We have been coming here for 42 years, but I have to say it is slipping down on my favorite list. The prices went up 30% both for camping and day passes 2 years ago to support improvements, that mainly consists handicap spaces, 50 Amp electrical at all sites, and upgrade to full hookups at all sites rather than only a part of them. Unfortunately, they went cheap on the water supply using a single hydrant for two sites (not opposing parking) so one site has to have your hose pass through your awning area, and plan on bring 100' of hose. Also the water pressure is so bad, you have to fill your tank and use your pump. Even with only 10% occupancy, the pressure was terrible. I'm not sure what they did because it used to be fine. We did have some trainee camp hosts that irritated me daily with new rules we were breaking (even though we have been doing it the same for 42 years) but I forgive them as they were friendly and I'm sure it's not an easy job. Last complaint were the trees! Come on Nebraska - these are big rigs that pull through here and your trees are maturing! I don't like driving a $200,000 13' high rig under an 11' tree branch. We complained at the park office, and we showed them pictures via email of other motorhomes dragging branches across the roof, but in the 11 days of our stay they never responded or even sent anyone out. I guess if they are OK with me driving in their grass to avoid tree limbs, then I'm OK with the low trees. Unfortunately the low trees block all exit from the west side of the campground, so its hard to avoid.They are shutting down next week for winter work. I hope they get some things fixed! I still love the park. - atom ant

Beautiful campground, right on Lake McConaughy. The best part of the grounds was definintely the scenery. The roads getting to the campground were a little rough, and the check-in was a bit confusing; there wasn't an actual person to talk to. Since we had reserved online, we went to our space right away and saw that the campground host had already posted our site for us. There was plenty of space and our spot was only a couple of hundred feet from the water (walking distance with a toddler, a baby, and some chairs in hand). - joshnichols84

Stayed in full hookup site. Very nice campground. The lake is almost full and we always enjoy the sand beaches. - gwalter

Lots of shade, no problem finding a site on a Thurs at the first come, first serve section (a very large area); but by Thurs evening the place was filling fast. The restrooms were dated, not very clean. Would stay here again when in the area although the price was a bit much for services offered. An additional $8 daily state parks pass fee is also required. Once again table and ring on wrong side of camper but we survived. Site is back in but because it is 1st site in loop we were able to pull through using turn around. There is a couple other parks on this lake and if you want too can camp on nice sandy beach, we saw at least a dozen campers on beach. This whole area is sand. - JR and The Boys

The Lake McConaughy and Lake Ogallala area is a true gem of the midwest. You'll find miles of sandy shaded beaches--unexpected in Nebraska. However, our neighbors in the Lake Ogallala campground were the rudest and most misbehaved group of campers I've ever encountered. They would walk straight through our campsite--just feet away from our table where we were eating. They shot off fireworks in the middle of June. They stayed up partying until 2am. They would drive cars through our campsite--just feet away from our tent. They openly smoked marijuana. They squeezed 30+ people, 9+ cars, 2 boats, 4 tents, and 1 RV into a single site. When they ran out of room, they started setting up tents in our site. They stole our picnic table. This behavior describes multiple different groups around our site--not just one problem group. I tried starting a neighborly conversation with a few of the most problematic groups. Didn't really get anywhere... This just seems to be the way campers behave in this area. Lots of boaters--I don't know if this has anything to do with it. Couldn't find or get ahold of a campsite host. I didn't want to be the guy who calls the park officer. Park staff never seemed to visit the campground. Camping in Colorado last year was cheaper with better facilities, better views, better neighbors, and less marijuana smoke. Nebraska charges you 75 cents for a 3 minute shower in a dirty restroom, when you're right next to the largest reservoir in the state. - Camper62

Older state park which could use some updates. Nice open spots. Nestled in Cottonwoods, which when blooming can create a mess. - rwthomasjrfamily

Bathrooms could have been cleaner, flat sites but nothing but gray fine sand. Decent little store, friendly staff, caters to fishing. Has permanent mobile homes on one side. Laundry facility was fine. Had a beach, several lakeside spots, some shade. Pay showers $1/5 mins. Worked for us for an overnight stay while on the road (making a point to stay overnight on lake along our route). Not a lot of full/sewer hooks ups. - Enjoying_Retirement

We prefer quiet but did not experience it here; however staff did rectify the party atmosphere after numerous complaints and guests leaving because of the loud music, etc. Very crowded with lake toys which makes the roads very narrow. Shade was good. Dirt spaces and close together. Minimal grass area for tenters. Lake is full and beautiful though for playing and fishing. - C Thomas

We were expecting a nice place from looking at the website photos of Van's. We were very, very disappointed. The photos were taken a number of years ago, and does not show what the campground is really like. Essentially, Van's is a big rv parking lot. Yuck. No vegetation or grass as shown in the old photos. Very little space between sites and the campground seems in very poor shape. There is ample space to park your boat with your camper, but that's about it. Due to the low water conditions for the past several years, their private boat ramp was closed and appeared to have been for some time. Their "restrooms" are simply porta-pottys here and there. The rate reflects non-holiday. If you plan to stay there during a summer holiday, 4th of July for example, the price is 4x to $120/night for 30A full hookups! Yikes! (No refunds!) Better off to stay elsewhere. Additionally, the long road from the highway is now loose rock. Watch your windshield. Will not be back. - colochoclab

Wish I had my fishing gear. Nice place! They make a GREAT garbage pizza!
You might be careful of where your GPS takes you. Follow their signs and take your time. If we had been able we would have stayed longer!! - Homawy

The road has been newly paved except for the last two miles, which is gravel, but wasn't bad. Beautiful campground, friendly staff, and delicious food. Had a great time fishing on the lake. Nice sandy beaches too! It's definitely a quiet hideaway worth going to. - Fishing nuts

Rate reflects Passport America. We initially wanted to stay two nights. However, there are two entry roads to the park which are 'unimproved' - actually they are a nightmare and don't dare try to enter or leave if it's been raining or else plan on calling roadside assistance to get out of there! The site we were given was entirely too small for our fifth wheel. In order to open our slides, we were jutting out in the roadway. We were next to the pool so all we could hear was the kids screaming and yelling. The site was littered with cigarette butts; someone had thrown rotting food on the ground, and there was metal trash on the ground at our site. Completely unhappy with this park. If we had known the roads were so bad, we would not have stayed. Leaving the park, we blew a tire - I've no doubt its a result of a piece of metal we didn't find that found our tire instead. We left after one night - couldn't leave fast enough! - ColesCruising
