Lake Cunningham - also referred to as the "C", is a 390-acre lake surrounded by a 1,050-acre park located in north-central Omaha, Nebraska. The lake was constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for flood control and recreation and opened to the public in 1977. For more information on additional recreational amenities, please visit our website.

In 2021 the park reopened after being closed for renovations and the draining of zebra mussels. The completed improvements to the park include a six-mile concrete multipurpose trail that loops around the lake and crosses over two new pedestrian bridges. The new loop trail is a never-before-seen experience that attracts both walkers and bikers, giving them the opportunity to enjoy nature and wildlife.

Lake Cunningham features the West C Campground which has 41 concrete RV sites with electrical of 20, 30, and 50-amplifications. The West C Campground also has an upgraded bathhouse facility. The East C Campground features 42 concrete campground stalls complete with water, electrical of 20, 30, and 50 amps, and sanitary at each pad as well as a new bathhouse facility. There are 7 primitive camping spots. All new grills and firepits will accompany all the campground stalls. All RV sites have access to a freshwater fill station and a dump station when you enter the campground entrance.

Come experience an unforgettable outdoor adventure at the C!

Really pleasant campground. Host checks you in, then leave you alone. Quiet and verdant!

Melanie Pace

Clean, quiet, well kept. Camp host was amazing. Overall 19/10 I would stay again

Deb S

We had a lovely site. We had a lovely stay. Ed was a wonderful host. The only con would be to have group camping in another location. The people in back had 15 people at their site from Thursday to Saturday ,beginning in the early afternoon until 1 am. Outside tv was quiet,but the conversations were loud.We did not complain at that time because we didn't want to make it worse.

Lake was mucky. Host wasn’t very nice. Bathrooms weren’t kept up during the busiest times . No TP and trash not emptied. Maybe they should be checked more often. Couldn’t sleep mainly because of the interstate traffic noise all the time. Grounds were pretty well kept!

Edwin Hiner

Great campground with large spaces

Scott Osborne

Very clean and beautiful park right on the outskirt of Omaha.

Diane Driver

The campsites were beautiful, spacious, paved, and level. The park and walking path was very nice. The drinking water was yellow, cloudy, and smelly. The bathrooms were not cleaned on a regular basis. We stayed four nights and I think the ladies room was cleaned once during our stay. Twice, the toilet paper ran out. I asked once and it was replaced. The camp host was very friendly.

Kay Demaree

Very nice campground, clean and quiet. Suggest that Security abide by the park speed limit, especially after dark. Also suggest that trash dumpster be moved out of driving lane to accommodate bigger/longer rigs.
