Meet Your Hosts

Ogallala I80 KOA Journey Team

Camping where strangers become friends and friends become family!

We are a family owned and operated park. Your hosts are Matt and Kristy and their amazing team. At any given time, you will find their kids and grandkids working or just enjoying visiting with our guests. We love camping and decided that the campground business was a perfect fit for us. Kristy grew up in her grandfather's KOA as a child and so the transition to KOA has just seemed natural! Our goal is for you to find a nice place to stay that is friendly, has clean facilities, and is a safe place for your family and pets. Our property runs right along I-80, which makes it a perfect location for you to get off the interstate and then back on when you have to leave. We have 2 truck stops close by, which makes fueling up a big rig a breeze. We are an interstate campground and you will have the noise of a busy interstate so take that it into consideration before choosing to stay but we do make up for it with clean facilities and friendly staff who will welcome you with a smile and make your stay the best it can be. We want your stay to be so great that next time you bring a friend along. We have several activities for the whole family, including gaga ball, corn hole, a playground, 2 Kamp K9's to let your dogs off leash (1-regular grass and 1 artificial turf), a clean laundry room, and a town square pavilion area. There are many activities to do within a 200 mile radius. The Ogallala I80 KOA Journey Team invites you to come and visit us - we can't wait to have you as our guest!
