Tent Reviews

Maintence was good. Very helpful. Very quiet.

The grounds were well maintained, you could see the level of effort made to keep the facility serviceable. The pool was clean but is showing it's age and needs to be updated. Noise from the interstate is a negative but manageable. Local construction to the overpass went all night and was very annoying but that should not be a norm for this facility. WIFI is only available in the Gas Station/Regist

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had reserved a tent site, but asked to be upgraded to a Kabin and they were able to accommodate the request. The bathrooms and the laundry facilities were very clean. The pool was under construction, but appeared almost ready to reopen.

Quiet even though just off interstate. Well-maintained showers/bathrooms. Tent sites level, most with shade.

My road partner and I were staying in the campground for a single night on our way back home from a road trip. The campground was nice and organized, though improved roads to the campsites would have been welcome, especially since it is hard to see at night.

This was a very rustic KOA and was quiet. We had a good nights sleep and were ready for a new day in the morning.

Older campground. Nice location with plenty of trees and shade. Nothing fancy, but price was right for tent site.

Very interesting British items for sale is cool.

Probably the worst KOA experience I've ever had. If you like the feeling of sleeping in a train station, then you'd probably like this campground.

This place seemed nice enough, got there kinda late and left early but overall was a nice place to stay and the staff was great...

The Gothenburg KOA is built on a sandbar in the middle of the Platte River. The camp is run down, the roof of the camp store leaks. It is about 200 yards from the cacmprounds. The tent sites are about 6" lower than the sanitary dump station. When it floods, as in our stay, you know what runs down hill. Overall, do not stay here.


I'm sorry that you were unhappy with your stay, but I wish you had added that we had the worst storm of the year with a tornado report and that I risked my safety to bring everyone to the store.The rain coming in was wind driven (70mph).The water flooding part of cg was river/rain water NOT sewage

The ground were neat and clean and enjoyed the trees. The shower rooms were bright and cherrfulland very clean and enjoyed a place to sit outside the shower and all the hooks on the walls for hanging clothes. Also the location of outlets. Enjoyed the company from #16 Tom& Jane Hess

Simple and fine. Pulled in for a quick overnight stay. Did laundry, which was great. We liked the tent "ring", however we were all so close together with no vegetation between us which meant that we could hear the other campers' snoring during the night (which meant they heard our's as well! Friendly staff. Clean campground. Easy on/off the highway.

Was just a one night stop that we made from seeing the KOA sign on the side of the freeway. Was a nice park, and a welcomed bit of rest on a long road trip.

The one good thing about this KOA was that they showers themselves were nice: I had adequate water, and it was nice and hot. Everything else I was pretty unimpressed with--I've stayed at a lot of KOAs, and this was probably the worst one in every aspect (except the shower!). Not horrible, certainly (while I'd try to avoid staying there again, I wouldn't dismiss it totally).

Easy to make reservation. Good reception when arriving. Quiet!

Loud trains and I-80 traffic all night long. Nature trailshort and dull and there was no see able water though the KOA map and write up make it look like it is a flowing river. Bathrooms okay, store excellent, campsite spacious but picnic table COVERED with bird droppings, no wifi, price okay.

Expected to swim after a long day driving but pool was dirty and unkept. Tetherball game was broken.

Bathrooms were clean and showers had warm water :) They also gave us free firewood which is a huge plus. Owners were friendly and accommodating.

I enjoyed the campsite. Only thing i had an issue with was the cost. 22 dollars is too much for a simple tent.

No one around to check us in or out. Did not see any staff or security in the area.

Our tent camping was fine, but the feeling is that this KOA is going downhill and needs more maintenance. The bathroom & shower were clean and nice, but the area around the bathroom and filled with junk and needs cleaned up.
Sep 17, 2012
Very nice pool if you get past the fact that it hasn't been cleaned for a few days and the bugs were numerous. Nice flat grassy tent site near the Platte River. Relatively quiet and close enough to a small town.
