Called ahead to inquire about facilities. Was told camping was $20..did not mention the additional $5 entry fee and the showers were 75 cents for 3 minutes. All fees should have been disclosed. Our choice would have been different.

Fort Kearney was an ideal rest stop on the I-80 on my trip from central Colorado to eastern Iowa. The tent camping fee, $5 day use and $12 overnight for $17 total, is extremely reasonable for a wonderful and convenient campground almost totally removed from freeway traffic noise.

Weekends are busy but the camp sites are spaced far enough apart for privacy and it has many shade trees throughout the park. Fishing is excellent and the park staff is very friendly and helpful....

This park has several positives, but I still wasn't able to give it a good review. Check-in was easy. Nice ponds for those who enjoy fishing. My husband enjoyed running on a flat well marked trail. Bathhouse was fine with affordable pay showers. Electricity at the site. The bad: very few water places to get drinking water. It was a... More
