We have always enjoyed our visits here overall. There is a wide selection of activities year round indoors and out. The hiking areas are well maintained & the view from the tower shows the area well on a clear day. We stayed at the cabins last year at Christmas, and everything really necessary was provided. They were clean excepting a... More

FYI the restaurant is now closed at the Lodge. Hopefully they will get a new vendor in soon! But the park itself is awesome as always. That is why I still give it 5 stars.

We don't make it out here as often as we would like, but there is something to do year round- ice skating, paddle-boating, etc.. The grounds are also fairly large and they even have a place to eat if you aren't a picnic person, but I've never tried it out.

Ive been going here with my family every october for the past couple years. My best friend and his family got a cabin right next to us. We hiked right down into the woods and went through the whole park. The observation tower offers an amazing view of the whole park. The train tracks were right down the hill from... More

However, in the campground the bathrooms had a heavy urine smell, were generally very tired... More

I suggest doing anything here other than renting a cabin. We had a bachelor party in a cabin and while it fit the bachelor party theme perfectly, I definitely would have been disappointed had I rented it for a family weekend. The park itself is beautiful and there's a ton to do. The cost to get in is a little... More

Mahoney has it all - something for families, business, couples or friends. Lots of great features- amazing water park, beautiful views of the Platte River, fantastic meeting facilities for small to mid sized groups, perfect family reunion lodging, romantic cabins and full service hotel at the lodge with a GREAT restaurant overlooking the Platte.
