Always love Mahoney. Horses' swimming, winter has sledding and ice skating. Go into omaha to water park if need to swim. Beautiful cabins and serene

Great indoor play ground. This is a must if you have kids. For the cost of 2 dollars it is worth it. Must have a state park sticker. Two ball pits, several slides(1 slide is over 20 feet long, lots of tunnels.

Our family has gone to Mahoney Park over Christmas break every year for the last four years. Free sled hills (bring your own sleds) make it fun for younger kids, teenagers and adults. Note: tubes don't last long unless they are the hard bottom type! There is also an ice skating rink and fun center with admission charges. Depending on... More

I've never seen a skate rink with a play place for non-skaters. Totally worth it! Nobody had to wait around while others were still skating. Rink is outdoors with a roof but no sides. Few people on a cold rainy day!

We stayed here at the little creek campground in our 5th wheel. The campground was great. We had a lot of fun and never found ourselves bored, there was so much to do at the park itself. Beautiful place to really see all the fall colors. The horse trails and paddle boats were already closed for season. But my kids... More

It is a beautiful park. The rooms in the hotel are old but nice. It is a very charming place to go for hiking.

A mid-October Tuesday and we found the "open year-round" park's campsites' restroom/shower facilities had signs declaring "closed for the winter" in most areas. Only one small campsite area was open on a first-come basis, and it had no spaces close enough to facilities for handicapped people to access. The restaurant, too, was closed. Disappointing, because there is still much lovely... More

My family and I love to visit Mahoney State Park. There is always something to do there year around. Trails, parks, horse riding, etc. Check it out!

Lots of outdoor time with the grandkidlets to expend some of their energy. Well kept outdoor playground. Not a fan of indoor ball pits, but they are. Too many tweens running over the top of littles with no visible supervision. Oh well. We didn't stay long before hitting the trails again.
