We don't know about you, but we love a good camping trip where we get to spot something we've never seen before. At Bessey Family Campground, you'll see the unique combo of the ponderosa pines and mixed grass prairies that are native to this area, plus the person-planted trees 'n' grasslands paired with sand hills. That's quite the mix! While you're enjoying the extraordinary scenery, you can also live up tubing, canoeing, or fishing on the shallow, but steadily flowing Middle Loup River. Campsites are available for those in tents, trailers, and RVs, and if you realize you forgot somethin', there's a grocery store just 16 miles away. You'll want to stock up for the picnics you're about to enjoy at Bessey!
