4 RV Parks near Hay Springs, Nebraska
Aug 2018 - $15.00
We stayed based on some very nice, but old reviews, that no longer seem accurate. It was a good price for a full hookup ($15), but it has since become a parking lot for unattended trailers. Although there was a host site, we never once saw anyone. It is adjacent to a nice county park and pool. The noise from the highway is quite loud when you are sitting outside. Because there are no reservations, and because parked unattended trailers are taking up 10 of the 12 sites, I wouldn't bank on finding a spot here. - cez

What a JEWEL. A little gem in the middle of Norther Nebraska. City park, easy in, easy out, 6 pull through spaces, alternate hookups, long sewer and water hookups for some No cable, wifi, a little, sometimes. Big park across the street to walk the dogs. City swimming pool adjacent to park, It wasn't open while we were there, kids back in school. A great place to spend a night or a week seeing the area. Nice small town. would stay again if in area. - ChiefUSN

This is a very eclectic campground with a resident "manager" who was friendly and available. All the other campers were long-term. The sites were generally level with water hook-up only. Payment was made by envelope at an unattended office. What a refreshing change from the formal "check-in" at the big parks. The pool was closed for the season, but the town was taking up a collection to "save the pool"! There is a large, well maintained park across from the campground that offers plenty of exercise for the kids.The amenities in town were all walkable and there was plenty of room to run your dog off leash.
The only negative were the restrooms. They were quite frankly disgusting and in need of upgrading. - DHK

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

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

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
