Visit the Rock Creek Station historical park. It's quite a long walk to the toll bridge and pony express station. Take water and stop along the way on benches conveniently placed. The ruts are amazing. Staff in the visitor center is very knowledgeable.

The actual sites are quite nice. Ours was a back in, and I believe most of them are as well. They are level asphalt with electric and water and a degree of shade. Sewer dump is available at departure. There is a degree of history here relative to the Pony Express, Wild Bill Hickok, and wagon train trails. I thought the bathroom although clean a bit disconcerting with the shower faucet on a timed (30 second ?) lever. We do not tow so cannot address the tow question boxes. We camped at Rock Creek Station State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

It was a hot one (94F) but you can't fault the park for that. Off the beaten trail seems to be a plus for this campground. Privacy was great likely due to the heat, location, and weekday stay. Clean facilities making using their showers and restrooms a first choice. Good stay when traveling through the state. We camped at Rock Creek Station State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

It is worth the effort to leave the interstate and visit this gem of a park. The campground is part of the Rock Creek Station State Historical Park, which preserves and interprets the role this "station" played on the Oregon Trail and the Pony Express. The ranger was very accomdating and opened the historic buildings for us early. The campground is connected by trail to the visitor center and station buildings. The campground itself was a shady oasis on the extremely hot day we were there. The paved pads were level, and the restrooms were immaculate. The host was welcoming too! A nice touch were the gorgeous flowers outside the shower house, and the handmade birdhouses at many of the sites. We'll be back to explore more of the trails. We camped at Rock Creek Station State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
