Beatrice campground holds a piece of my heart! We start each camping season there. It is very peaceful and scenic. While there are not a lot of "fish in the sea", we still enjoy boating the water there. We have opened our camping season at Beatrice for 28 years! We started with a tent, graduated to a small, then medium, then large RV. We can not navigate the whole site because of the tight turning angles, but we still are able to get into beautiful sites there.
