This is a nice state park in remote western Nebraska with nice camp sites but also great plays during the summer,swimming pool,horseback,rides,resterant,etc. This is the place to go if you like history. - NE Travelers

Fort Robinson is a hidden gem. The surrounding bluffs are beautiful, and the history of the fort as exhibited in the museum is very interesting. We stayed in the Red Cloud Campground, which is the full-hookup campground. All sites are back-in. Check in was easy, and the staff was helpful and friendly. The interior roads are paved and relatively easy to navigate. We stayed in site 113, which I wouldn't recommend. The picnic table was oddly placed on the opposite side of the rig from where it should be. The hookups were fine. There is no WiFi. There was a tree next to our site which partially blocked our rooftop satellite. The grass at the site would be nice if it had been mowed, but unfortunately is too tall to enjoy. There are two parking areas along the entry road, which make it easy to hook up the toad when leaving. The whole area is really nice, and I would definitely return. - mtmsf

We stayed at Pony Soldier campground with our 35 foot rv. All sites were back-ins, but we were able to select a site that was easy to back in. The sites in this campground are generally well spaced apart around a big loop. We did drive around and saw the barn campground, where the sites, are in lines. There is also third campground with no services. (Ours had full hookup.) We took a chance without reservations and did a walk in. The park has a policy that it will not accept walk-ins until 2 pm, which gives current guests a chance to extend their stays. Despite this and it being a busy summer weekend, we had our choice of spaces. The park keeps a lot of walk-ins available. The site was quite long, but the sewer hook-up is situated along the middle of the site, which meant that in order for our sewer line to reach, we had to park forward in the site. This meant that there was not quite enough room for our toad to pull straight in. Fortunately, there was plenty of room to park it crosswise, but with the heavy rains that weekend, it would have been preferable to be able to take full advantage of the asphalt drive way, rather than on person having to step off in the grass. Sites were very level. At $26 per night, this would have been an excellent value, but the Park insists that each vehicle carry a Nebraska State Parks pass. At $8 per vehicle per night, the $32 added to our stay pushed the price of our stay into the expensive range for us. - VickyfromNZ

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

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

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 was a quick overnight stop when we were traveling. Management was very helpful. While this is an older park, and a little rough, it was clean and the hookups were convenient. There are not many options in the area and this place was as good as any. Do shake down anything you put outside. This is sand hill country & there are lots of ants. - 2retreads

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
