Park your RV at our site and let the meadowlarks wake you up with their unique and beautiful song. Open your eyes to the rosy hue of a prairie dawn in beautiful Gering, Nebraska.

Take in the stunning view, and explore the 200 acres of private land bordering the historic Scotts Bluff National Monument. The land features a canyon, a couple of friendly horses, and Oregon Trail era prairie, home to a wide variety of wildlife.

You will find your spirit awakened by the magic of this land featuring unique sandstone bluffs that were recorded as significant landmarks in the pioneer journals of people traveling on the Oregon Trail.  

IMPORTANT:  Fresh water provided via a hose from a localized well. Electrical outlet available on a pole near our corral site. Campfires on the prairie are not allowed and this is ABSOLUTELY NON NEGOTIABLE.  No open flames or fires are allowed anywhere on the prairie at any time of the year.   Fireworks during  Independence Day are expressly forbidden.  A communal fire pit is provided at the campsite.

This land also 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.  

In addition to the canyon and vast prairie on our land, hikers may jump the fence and legally enjoy hiking and climbing at varying degrees of challenge on the national park land which belongs to the people of the United States, and is part of the visual landscape of this site. It is illegal to climb Dome Rock, however one may hike to the bottom "rung" and enjoy the stunning view of the whole valley.  

Site rules:  

Pets allowed only by special permission and only on the prairie if secured inside or leashed 100 percent of the time.  MESSAGE THE HOST BEFORE BOOKING.

No alcoholic beverages are allowed on the prairie (no exceptions).

While allowed in the camp site, no glass containers of any kind are allowed on the prairie. 

No firearms allowed anywhere in the campsites or on the prairie. 

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. 

Neither trash cans nor sewage dump is provided. You are responsible for your own refuse (leave nothing behind in the campsite nor on the prairie).  Trash left behind will result in negative reviews of your stay. 

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

The campsite and prairie grounds are on uneven ground, step carefully.

You are responsible for your own safety, pay attention where you put your feet and your hands while hiking. 

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

Prairie Access is at the mouth of the canyon.  The only trails are created by the deer and the cattle that graze on this land. 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.  

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. Coyotes are generally not interested in people, but do protect the boundaries of their territory.

Unsupervised pets are not allowed on the prairie specifically because of the risk posed by coyotes and rattlesnakes; however, leashed animals are welcome with permission by the host.  Dog breeds that chase horses and cattle are not welcome.

We were hoping to wake up to a view of the bluffs. Unfortunately it rained heavily just before we arrived, and the road to the site was not passable.

Frank and Lisa made sure we were comfortable in an alternate location, and we had a quiet and restful sleep.

We did get to enjoy the beautiful view the next morning before we left, and Lisa gave us fresh eggs that we thoroughly enjoyed for breakfast.

Thanks to Jeff and Lisa for making us comfortable in a rainy situation.
