Don't let the location fool you. This is a beautiful area of mixed grass prairie interspersed with vast areas of pine forest. The topography consists of "badlands" which verge on mountainous terrain, buttes, little valleys with clear streams, and views around every corner. The state park and cabin are in a forested area.

We rented a two bedroom cabin which easily accommodated six of us (two adults, four children). It was definitely dated, but CLEAN. It was furnished with all the basic comforts and necessities: full size fridge/freezer, air conditioning, stocked kitchen (dished), dining table with chairs, couch and chairs and a roomy bathroom. The cabin itself was quite roomy and, except for the bedrooms, was tiled throughout which made cleaning up easy in between all the outdoor adventures. It had everything you need while still retaining a "camp house" feel. All of this cost us about $70/night. Good luck finding that in town.

We only have one complaint. The mattresses are very firm. Because there is a limited supply of linens to pad with, you may want to consider bringing a sleeping bag or extra blankets to pad underneath you, or you may find sleeping difficult. Also, keep an eye on young kids when turning on the shower. It gets HOT, and quick.

The cabins have no TVs, so if you want one, bring your own. Better yet, skip it and spend that time exploring the park or getting to know your kids better.

There are ample activities within walking distance from the cabins. Hiking, fishing, archery, trail rides, hatchet throwing, paddle boating and feeding the evil finger biting shetland pony. I hate that pony. I had such handsome fingers.....

Right, so....

The sunsets and sky at night are beautiful here. Truly. Fort Robinson State park is a short drive away and is a must-see day trip. Lots of history and activities.

The climate is dry and was a nice break from Minnesota. We recently moved back south, and one of our only regrets was not being able to visit this park and area again. It really is that great!

Room Tip: Bring extra padding for your bed.
