Do you love the freedom of a secluded campsite? 

 Pick your site along 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. 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. 

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

It was literally over 100 degrees outside when my pup and I stayed with Colton. There is no shade at this campsite and I was not prepared for it. So we just huddled down in the shadow of my car for a couple of hours while the sun began to set.

I brought several quarts of water with me but it was so hot we burned through it quickly. Colton was nice enough to bring me out a gallon which was not expected and it helped me out a ton.

You can get down to the river if you follow the jeep path south east along the banks. There are some cactuses and my dog did get stuck but she was fine once we picked them off.

Once the sun set it was an abolutely lovely place to stay the night.

At some point it might be nice to have a shelter, umbrella or shade of some kind but I also could have planned better. It's also not always going to be 100 degrees out...

Very nice site right next to the river. Nice clean and level sand for pitching a tent. Loved listening to the sounds of the river and the coyotes as I drifted off to sleep. Easy access from I80, so I'll likely stay again next time I travel from Iowa to Colorado. Highly recommended!

Excellent camping spot! We were in the midst of a cross country road trip and were exhausted from the long drive. Colten was extremely accommodating of our late arrival. Peaceful solitude with a great view of the river. Perfect for those looking for a nice night away from the crowds of SRAs nearby. Would definitely stay again!

Very peaceful and unique. We stayed with our dog. Beautiful sunset views and friendly host. Would stay there again. If you have a pet watch out for the prickly plants… our dog was not used to watching his feet and he got stuck a few times. But that was the only downside. We hope to stay there again in the future. Thank you!

This is a great spot. My dog and I were just passing through so we didn’t get to explore too much but the property is perfect. Site is right on the water and Colten was super attentive especially since we came in after dark. 10/10 would recommend! Thanks!
