Do you love the freedom of a secluded campsite? 

 We have a half mile stretch of the North Platte River surrounded by cotton wood and cedar trees. You can enjoy the peace and serenity of river or drive 10 min to Lake McConaughy, the largest reservoir in the great State of Nebraska. If you enjoy a peaceful float down the river, this might be the perfect place for you. As a summer activity, there is a great place to drop into the river about 3 miles up the road, then you can float down the river and end up right up to your campsite. If fishing is more your style, you can find your happy place on the river bank and throw a line in. 

Please note, off the beaten path there is native cactus, so please be mindful where you walk if you choose to explore.  

We have 1 site that is fully accessible to all small/large vehicles, there are other sites that require an off-road vehicle. Please message us to discuss.

We were looking for a peaceful hideaway near Lake Mac and the site exceeded our expectations. It was quiet, peaceful, and very well set up. We really enjoyed the scenery, including amazing sunsets over the river. We definitely recommend checking this place out.

Colten’s camp was our favorite Hipcamp! Totally secluded, beautiful lazy river next to the camp, sound of coyotes & distant train at night. Host provide new picnic table, fire ring, bug spray & even books to read. Wonderful opportunity to see why Nebraskans love their solitude.!

Really enjoyed my night camping by the river! Beautiful property, very secluded, quiet, and right next to a calming river. The star gazing here was so fun! The instructions to find the site were very easy to follow and Colten was very responsive host. Would definitely camp here again!! :)

We had a great time tent camping on Colten's land. The site area is a fantastic spot on the river.

SO cool. Truly the perfect site. Old cars lining the river made for awesome pics. And the sounds of nature surrounding made for a beautiful night sleep. Loved exploring the area the next day. Highly recommend

Very scenic spot to camp. Only popped by for a night and glad that I did! There’s a picnic table and fire pit + several stumps for seating. General farm sounds (moo) and trains passing in the night.

Had a great night camping at Colten's spot near the river. Would've been even better if I had my fishing gear with me. The fish were biting and jumping, snacking on flies as the sun set –Really wish I could have put a line in.

I will absolutely book again next time I'm traveling through.
