One of the nicest campgrounds in eastern NE. 20 miles of hiking trails throughout the beautiful hardwood forest (backcountry camping of trails ok) and hills that overlook the wide and winding Missouri River. Mountain biking, horseback riding, water access for fishing, hunting, playground, campsites with clean showers, and much more. Check out the restored school house and general store. The only thing that kept me from giving this campground a "5" was that there are no cabins and no swimming
