Pavement Ends Campground

14 sites · RVs, Tents10 acres · Harrison, NE
We are a working cattle ranch that decided to open a campground on our property due to the isolation and distance that people were traveling to get to accommodations since Agate Fossil Beds National Monument, which borders our ranch on the west, doesn't allow any camping. The campground offers a quiet place to hookup, relax, and enjoy the dark night skies.

The best camping near Chadron State Park guide



Chadron State Park is Nebraska's oldest and best kept secret, you know what that means right? It means unspoiled lands, stunning vistas, and plenty of adventure to wet your whistle! Hike the glorious Pine Ridge, a 100 mile long escarpment of Ponderosa Pines and prairie lands. You want panoramic shots on your camera? This is the the spot! There’s plenty of trails for bikers and horseback riders to move those miles along. With plenty of tennis, swimming pools, and seriously rad fishing ponds, Chadron is fun for the whole family! Cozy up in a cabin, or swing into one of their campsites for a weekend of wilderness bliss. Chadron, despite it’s age, is still on top of the adventure game.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Chadron State Park is during the late spring through early fall, when the weather is mild and the park's full splendor is on display. Summer months offer the warmest temperatures for swimming and boating, while autumn brings a stunning palette of fall foliage. Winter can be harsh, with snow and cold temperatures limiting access to some park features.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast and pack accordingly, as conditions can change rapidly amid Nebraska's diverse climate.
  • Be aware of park hours, typically from 8:30am to 5pm, and plan your visit within these times.
  • Wildlife is abundant, so keep a safe distance and store food securely.
  • Stay on designated trails to protect the park's natural habitat and your own safety.
  • Facilities such as restrooms and picnic areas are available, but it's wise to bring essential supplies in case certain areas are closed.
