You can Park your RV or pull behind trailer at any one of our sites and let the meadowlarks sing you awake with their unique and beautiful song. Open your eyes to the rosy hue of a prairie dawn, right outside beautiful Gering, Nebraska.  

Sites have recently been upgraded to 50 amp electricity, and are located near our horse corral, with easy hose access to delicious well water. Please note: you can fill up your RV tank from your site with a hose we provide but you cannot maintain a water hook up during your stay.  A well-maintained portable potty is available mere steps away. Gray water dumping (only) is permitted; however, the City of Gering allows dumping nearby for a $10 fee. It's less than 2 miles to them.

No matter where you camp on this property, you will take in a stunning view, with easy access to the 200+ acres of private prairie bordering the Scotts Bluff National Monument. The land features a beautiful canyon, and easy access to bluff formations memorialized in pioneer journals as they traveled west. No open flames or fires are allowed anywhere except in the communal fire pit provided, and only when conditions are safe to do so. Ask Lisa or Frank if a fire is possible when you check in. Fireworks during Independence Day are expressly forbidden. 

To the north, the land features beautiful canyons full of berry trees, wildflowers, yucca, cactus, wild catnip, a wide array of native prairie grasses and medicinal plants. Let the sweeping view expand your consciousness. To the south, view the patchwork glory of Nebraska farm country with corn, beans, alfalfa, and sugar beets as far as you can see.

We are inclusive: No matter who you are. No matter the color of your skin. No matter who you love. All people are welcome here.

Site rules:  

Check in is from 6 p.m. until dark.* We will direct you to your site and meet up later if unable to meet you when you arrive. Pets are allowed only by special permission.  MESSAGE THE HOST BEFORE BOOKING. Leashed animals are welcome with permission by the host. You are responsible for cleaning up after your pet.  

While allowed in the campsite, no glass containers of any kind are allowed on the prairie. A trash receptacle is provided at our home site for use when you leave the site.  Leave nothing behind in the campsite nor on the prairie. 

No firearms allowed anywhere on the property.

Wildflowers exist on the prairie and should not be picked nor should stones, antlers or artifacts be removed. Likewise, wildlife homes are evident on the land in the form of burrows or holes in the sides of the canyon and on the prairie. It is extremely dangerous to investigate these holes, for they are another beast's home, and tragedy may result.  Please do not insert anything into the burrows or holes. 

All Federal and Nebraska state laws are recognized on this land. 

You are responsible for your own safety, pay attention where you put your feet and your hands while hiking.  The campsite and prairie grounds are on uneven ground, step carefully.  

Guests should wear appropriate shoes and long pants, as this is wild natural land where *rattlesnakes make their home.

*A note about snakes and other wildlife:   While a variety of snakes are mostly seen in the canyon, on the rock hills, sometimes on the road near and around our corral area, it is not likely you will see one. Should you encounter any snake on the prairie: Slowly back away and exit the area. Under no circumstances should you approach the snake, follow the snake, or try to tease or hurt the snake. If for some reason you are bitten by a rattlesnake, stay calm and immediately call 911. At the earliest possible time, please report any sightings and general location to the camp host.  

Other wildlife seen in this area include: Meadowlark, Great Horned Owl, White Tailed Deer, Coyote, Opossum, Raccoon, Skunk, Badger, Fox, and a variety of birds of prey.  

Coyotes are generally not interested in people, but do protect the boundaries of their territory.  If you encounter a coyote: Stand your ground and make yourself as large as possible. Slowly back away from the animal while making a menacing sound. Do not run nor turn your back on the animal. 

 Note:   Those who do not follow the site rules will be asked to leave immediately.

We had a wonderful time here, the kids loved the horses and Lisa was incredibly kind and patient with them the first morning, explaining how to be around the horses and safe! The views were amazing, secluded but close to town. The water from the spigot was great drinking water and the hiking on their property was fun and easy to access. An awesome place to stay :)

I work in VT during the winter and Wyoming during the summer and I wouldn’t dream of skipping Peaceful Prairie on my way! The sandstone formations that rise above the pastures are absolutely stunning and there are paths to hike in the afternoon before tenting or in the morning after breaking down camp! Lisa and Frank are wonderful people who are stewards of their land and their horses, who they took in because no one else wanted to care for older horses with a few health challenges. Unzipping my tent to be greeted by beautiful, gentle horses in the morning is such a delight! The big white Pyrenees, Cyrus, is an absolute darling who, if invited, will show his love by covering you in white hairs and slobber! There are even adorable burrowing owls a short walk from the campsite!

Exceptional experience at Peaceful Prairie! Lisa was a wonderful host - friendly, warm, engaging with a fascinating life story. The site was about the location - beautiful short grass prairie with Scotts Bluff National Monument as an inspiring background. The site has everything for a nature lover - beautiful scenery, stirring sunrises and sunsets, great hiking, and interesting wildlife. We had a fantastic time! Make sure you visit The Mixing Bowl in Gering for breakfast - the green chili sauce was incredible!

We loved staying here! It is such beautiful land, and we were also lucky and got the whole plot to ourselves which was so private! We were surrounded by beautiful Scottsbluff and farmlands. We got to meet the horses and also the beautiful pup Lisa had. She was friendly, we enjoyed chatting with her and she was also helpful with reccomendations. The stars and sunsets are incredible.

We had such a stunningly beautiful experience here. Lisa was a super gracious host and we really appreciated the tidbits of advice and comfort she provided. We truly felt welcomed. The views and sunsets/rises were unreal. Our only regret is not staying longer! Grateful for the opportunity to share space with coyote songs and the beautiful bluffs in this way. Big thanks to Lisa and Frank!

Lisa and Frank's spot is absolutely gorgeous! You sit directly behind Scotts Bluff National Monument and get your own private view of this beautiful and historic monument. The hiking on their property is wonderful. I had a lovely time hiking, watching the sunset, and chatting with the horses. Stop by the Scotts Bluff National Monument Visitor Center. It's just a few miles from here.
