Nebraska’s open roads and Great Plains harbor plenty of worthy road-trip destinations.
Simple pleasures and vast open spaces await campers in the Cornhusker State, so why not hit the road in your RV, seek out some solitude, and discover some of the Midwest's most underrated natural wonders along the way? Start your cross-state road trip in the west, where you can hop out to hunt for fossils at the Agate Fossil Beds National Monument, admire the views at Scotts Bluff National Monument, or hike through forests and canyons at Chadron State Park. When summer temperatures heat up, drive your rig to the sandy beaches of Lake McConaughy, park up beneath the Missouri River bluffs of Ponca State Park, or head to Merritt Reservoir State Recreation Area, which boasts some of the state’s best boating, fishing, and stargazing. For urban campers, there’s plenty of RV camping around Lincoln and Omaha, with the Indian Cave State Park and Platte River State Park a short drive away.
