Sep 2019 - $35.00
Stayed in Red Cloud camp, which is full hookups. Central location for the Pine Ridge areas we wanted to visit. Good thing is the historical nature of Ft. Robinson. Best of the western forts we have visited. Bad thing is the bathrooms need a lot of work and you have to pay for showers. - G&S Smith

Price paid reflects 37.00 campground fee and 8.00 state park day use fee. Nice park but way to expensive for a state park. Its absurd to charge a day use fee while staying in the CG. The Soldier loop is electric only, the Red Cloud loop has full hookups. Heard 2 trains 1 at midnight the other at 8am. Hwy 20 getting to the park is a very bumpy road. Would not stay again because of price. - newbies2016

We really like this campground, we've been here before. I would like to come and stay for a week or more. We think the campgrounds is very pretty. The only drawback is the lack of full hookups. We plan to stay on our way through and back in September! The young lady that checked me in wasn't very friendly and it seemed quite an effort for her to do it. This is very different than other times I've stayed here. The other times the staff was friendly and helpful. - alcomechanic

Very nice park...... The roads have small ruts about every 50ft and you will feel them all, will also keep traffic speeds very low. We camped on site # 58 up on the hill across from the flush toilets and shower bldg. Clean toilets & showers but very dated. Small laundry in same bldg. Cabins are available. We camped at Chadron State Park in a 5th wheel. - JR and The Boys
Jul 2018 - $20.00
This is a beautiful state park with lots of activities. Sites are large and I don't think there is a bad site in the campground. All staff are friendly and helpful. Good AT&T cell coverage, Dish satellite and Verizon MiFi. Close to Chadron and shopping. We stayed here 6 nights and would do the same again if in the area. - Bobbi1948

very nice CG, lots of walk-up sites avail on this week day. Wide open sites, lots of space, nice grass areas. RR's were clean but dated. Very nice cabins available in this CG. Easy drive from Custer SP. This area has some fire damage along with beetle kill. Would definitely stay here again. - katinfoco

We were looking for a place to stay in or near Nebraska National Forest/Chadron State Park that would be convenient to hiking trails. We're self contained and don't use facilities. We stayed on weeknights in mid-October in our 25 foot MH. This is a very nice primitive campground, conveniently located for hiking, and a great price at $5/$2.50 seniors. There are 12 sites off a dirt road. One or 2 others were occupied during our stay. Most sites are back ins-that need some leveling. There's one pull through and at least 2 pull-overs. The length of the parking areas vary, yet most sites are good sized. Most are shady, most are relatively private. There is trash service and toilets. There's no water. There's no WiFi. There's weak reliable Verizon and strong intermittent ATT cell coverage. The CG is close to US-385 with some road noise. For more CG services, consider Chadron SP CG. - dsvt

My disclaimer is that I retired from the Forest Service and have a fondness for FS campgrounds. That considered, I liked the Red Cloud campground, because 1) it is a good place for tent campers and folks with small trailers, popups, etc. 2) it is not a good place for four thousand pound monsters with smelly sewage hookups. You can see my prejudice.
Mostly it was very pretty, quiet, and cheap. I have a Golden age pass, or senior discount pass as it is now called. That reduced the cost to $2.50. There would have to be major things wrong with a campground to complain at that cost.
I needed a place for an overnight stay, and this was perfect. If you have anything over 25 feet, other places are probably better. But if you tent, or have a small rig and don't need hookups, this is a wonderful place to camp. There was a large RV camped there, but probably at the only site that could handle a rig of that size. You will also need to be skilled at backing your rig for some of the sites.
For $2.50 or $5.00 (if you have to pay full price) there is nearly nothing to complain about. That said, I did not use the toilet. But my experience is that the FS campground toilets are generally clean and odor free unless horribly overused. I plan on staying here again as I make this trip on a yearly basis. Happy camping! - Corno1

A primitive National Forest campground. Well shaded, quiet and clean. Not big rig friendly though. Just off of hwy 385, 10 miles south of Chadron, just a couple of minutes to Chadron State Park. Excellent for an overnight stay on your way to, or from the Black Hills. - ken22

This park has been largely taken over by construction workers and semi-permanent residents. Lots of vehicles parked everywhere. Site was too short for our rig. Had to park on partially in the aisle sideways. Room for our slides, but then the usable site space was gone. Quiet. Cottonwood trees were busy making a huge mess. OK for overnight, but not for an enjoyable stay. Highway noise. - Diane A

Just a quaint little RV Park on 385 N in Chadron, NE. It was clean, neat, quiet and a great place to hang our hat for the night while passing through. The roads and sites are gravel with grass between. Looked like all sites were pull-through with a post in the center. We would stay there again. Chadron appeared to be a pretty little town in a very scenic part of western Nebraska. - jomark

The spaces are rather close to each other but are well shaded. The park is dusty due to a well traveled gravel road next to the park. However, the park is well maintained, the owner and staff are friendly and helpful. The sewer hookup is somewhat awkward but the guide to your spot ensured you were able to connect. - Chalkie

This CG is owned by a cattle ranching family. They built the CG for the 2017 solar eclipse and have kept it running since. The CG itself is in the middle of one of their hay fields. It is very secluded with zero light pollution at night. Traffic on the road is limited to the few farmers that live past the CG. This is about .5 mile from the Agate Fossil Beds National Monument. The next nearest CG is 20+ miles away. The $25 is a bit expensive for what you get, but it's the location and isolation that made it worth it for us. The owners are extremely responsive on the phone or their Facebook page, but there are no reservations and everything is self-pay when you arrive. Unless there is something wild like an eclipse occurring, you don't have much to worry about getting a spot. Cell service is almost non-existent. There is a Verizon dead zone about 30 miles in either direction of the CG. The owner said that ATT was decent. Other than a wild thunderstorm that dumped about 3 in of rain and hail on us around 2 am, we really enjoyed our stay here. The owner came out and visited for about 20 minutes and made us feel at home. We went to the 4th of July fireworks in nearby Harrison, NE. It's put on by the volunteer FD and it was great. If we were in the area again, we'd definitely stay here. - Part-Time Paradise

We stayed here while passing through and found the campground to be resonable for the fee. The campground was clean and the site seem reasonable level. Easy access and close to downtown, quite and peaceful for a true country feel. Nice place to stay in Nebraska's "Top Town". - dthall2
