Dexter Esteban

Nice and quiet small RV park with clean and secured shower/ bathroom.

Kim Searcy

Good park. Level site. Good solid power.

Joe Shaw

Great city campground. Water and electric at each site. Dump station on site. A little way off the road but quiet with some train noise. Good location to go see the Golden Spike Union Pacific train depot.

Site was not available when we arrived. No one was there to assist

Campground Response

Hi, Laura! Unfortunately we are not able to be present on location 24/7. Reservations are now made online, and even when the office is closed, all campground information needed can be located outside the office. We also have provided several ways to get ahold of us if needed. You may speak to us through the ring doorbell, or text/call the number listed on the office door. If we are unable to answer right away, we will respond to your text or voicemail as soon as possible.

Requested a pull through site, wasn’t able to exit site due to other campers parking in front of my site, had to unhook toad….the sites are not level…

Campground Response

Hi, Sue! Sorry that your latest stay this year was not as pleasant as your first. On busy weekends like the one of this reservation, it does get pretty packed here.

Sue Brown

Great campground, friendly staff, very clean bathrooms/showers.. most sites have trees… this is my second time staying here- both times for a week! Can’t go wrong staying here!!! Come enjoy!

We stayed in our travel trailer at Lafayette Park on 6/30/22. The campground is on the north side of Gothenburg so we got to drive thru town and see the pony express station. There are lots of very mature cottonwood trees that provide shade. We had water and electricity hookups. We used the restrooms which were very clean. The campground is right next to a large park with a lake. Our camp site was level and had a picnic table. We also used the on site dump station. Overall we had a great experience and would recommend this RV campground.

Campground Response

Hi, Steven! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you again.

William Jones

We love this spot because it is quiet, located in a “park” setting and tranquil. I wish they had sewer hookups though.

Colleen Friesen

A gem in the middle of small town NE:) The owners are so friendly and accommodating. The bathrooms were spotless, the trail around the lake well maintained, and the grounds were quiet even though you are on the outskirts of Gothenburg...look forward to going back!

Tom Wilson

Very nice quiet campground. Huge trees everywhere and only 2 other campers in the whole place. It's a little hard to find, off the main highway a bit, but well worth the search.

Campground Response

Hi, Tom! Thank you for your review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay

Frank Green

Nice place. A little out dated, and the showers should have shower stalls and not just shower curtains between showers.

Mary Johnson

I liked this little campground. We stayed overnight. It has a good waking path, next to a lake. My husband said it was more rustic than he would like. You can hear the trains but that didn’t bother me. Campsites are kinda close but we were nearly alone so it didn’t matter. Overall clean and neat. And you need cash-remember that. Did not use the showers.

David White

The host was welcoming and kind. She answered our questions and made sure we had what we needed. The bathroom and showers were clean and easily accessible. It looks like a lovely town. We wish we had had more time to explore the area. We would definitely come here again.

Kandace Eller

Lovely park. Quiet and off the beaten path. Gracious campground hosts. We wished we had extra time to explore the community. Will stay there again when the travel opportunity permits.

Jill Sweeney

Very quiet and small campground. Host is very nice and accommodating. Enjoyed our stay.

Cyndi Bohun

We liked this campground, we liked grass. You can hear the trains, lots of them; but far enough away it is a comforting sound. Lots of warm water for shower.

Steven Frerichs

Very nice quiet park. Right next to a beautiful lake and a walkway threw covered bridge. The only reason I didn’t give it a full 5 stars it’s because of the Internet or should I say lack there of. If you were just on vacation and when I get quiet spot this is great…. if you’re trying to work on the road this is not so great otherwise will be back on our trip through Nebraska again!

Dirk Jones

Big nice cottonwood trees and lots of shade! Quiet.

Jen Needham

Quiet, peaceful and just right for a quick stop.

Terri Holt

Love the camp hosts. She did make accomodations to get me as close as possible to where I needed to be. It was very clean, and we enjoyed our time there. Also decently priced.
