The campsite was very clean and quiet. Our spot was very spacious and the bathrooms were well taken care of. The staff was very accommodating of our late night arrival as well. Great campsite, would definitely recommend to anyone looking to camp in the area.

The staff was so friendly and accommodating! We have a family of 5, and our kids loved the playground areas & seeing all the fireflies light up at night :) We loved this place so much, we will be returning for sure!

Mark Durbin

This park is excellent, inexpensive, and clean. It is adjacent to a huge park with a lake. We were able to let our dog run in the park without disturbing others. The town, Gothenburg is extremely clean and friendly. Everywhere we went, including the camp host, we were treated like friends. Awesome golf course. We had an exceptional experience.

R&V Gartner

Very clean and very nice people. 50 amp available, water and nice clean dump station. No problem at all with 35' fifth wheel.

Linda Jones

Beautiful park. Great 1 or 2 night stop, only because no sewers.

Chris Yates

Very nice and clean campground just a few miles from the interstate. Restrooms and showers are available. Sites are wide and there are several pull through sites available. There are train tracks nearby and you'll hear many trains pass through. Walking trails nearby at the lake.

Nancy Zeliff

Very well kept campground, shady, and quiet. Very helpful managers in the office. We appreciate the ability to keep our horse across the road at the Rodeo Arena. It's hard to find horse-friendly campgrounds, so thanks to the Rodeo Crew that allows horses to stay across the road! Gothenburg is a beautiful town!
