Choose From a Variety of Ways to Stay in Nebraska

Whether you choose to pitch your tent under Nebraska's canopy of stars or you prefer a few of the comforts of home, KOA has a variety of accommodations to suit any kind of camper:

  • Tent Camping: For some traditionalists, camping is not camping unless you're pitching a tent. KOA Tent Sites allow you to experience the outdoor beauty of Nebraska as you stoke your campfire and tell stories well into the night.
  • Cabin Camping: Camping is more than just a tent and gear — it's an experience that allows you to get away and commune with nature. Who says you can't do that with a roof overhead? Camping Cabins are perfect for those who want to leave the tent at home and enjoy a few more amenities, as they come equipped with beds and electricity.
  • Deluxe Cabins: Need something with a few more bells and whistles? KOA Deluxe Cabins come with all the Camping Cabin offerings, plus some extras to make your stay even comfier. They include your own private bathroom, and some have TVs, kitchenettes, linens and more.
  • Rving: The flat, expansive roads of Nebraska are calling out to RV enthusiasts. KOA ensures you have a great place to stay after traveling across the state. KOA RV Sites include convenient amenities such as full-hookups, easy access to pull in, 30- and 50-amp service and some even include their own KOA Patio®.
  • Other Unique Lodging Options: Tents and cabins are great, but if you'd like something totally out there, KOA has you covered. We offer a selection of unique lodging accommodations. You can experience life in the plains in a tepee. You can also try out an Airstream trailer, yurt or even a Glamping Tent. Whichever you choose will make for an interesting experience you won't soon forget.

Camp Near Popular Nebraska Attractions

If you ever wondered what it was like for 19th-century pioneers heading west along the Oregon Trail, then a trip to Nebraska is an adventure not to be missed. Start your excursion at the Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer in Grand Island or head to the Great Platte River Road Archway right near Kearney to learn the story of these early settlers.

The geography of Nebraska is made of expansive fields cut by the impressive Platte River. Plan a day on the water, swimming or tubing. In the spring, half a million sandhill cranes gather in the Platte, drawing avid bird watchers from around the world. History lovers will enjoy visiting the home of famed showman Buffalo Bill Cody. From exciting bike trails to summers filled with country fairs, your family will love vacationing in Nebraska.

Outdoor Wonderlands to Explore When Camping in Nebraska

Nebraska has many must-see natural attractions to explore, including:

  • Toadstool Geologic Park: This park is a perfect hiking spot, but you have likely never encountered its “surreal” terrain before — hikers describe it to be like a “moonscape.” You will understand what they mean as you follow trails past large rocks supported by thin dirt columns, odd-patterned canyons and many round, smooth stones.

    In the early morning and evening hours, the sun bathes the cream-colored rocks in a peachy-pink light, giving the park an other-worldly glow.

    Visitors share the park with geologists and paleontologists, who study Toadstool's sediment bands and search for fossils.

  • Lake McConaughy State Recreation Area: Lake McConaughy is Nebraska's largest reservoir, with nearly 35,000 acres of water and 100 miles of shoreline. The waters are clear, cool and deep — perfect for a summertime swim. They are also filled with plenty of local fish species — including white bass, northern pike, walleye and channel catfish — making it an ideal fishing location.

  • Niobrara National Scenic River: The Niobrara National Scenic River features one of Nebraska's most spectacular natural displays — Smith Falls. This waterfall is the tallest in the state at 70 feet. Take a short hike and cross a bridge over the river to get up close to the falls and stand right underneath the spring-fed water.

    You can also rent a canoe from one of the area's many local outfitters to explore the rest of the river and enjoy a peaceful ride along the Niobrara's beautiful sandstone cliffs.

  • Cowboy Trail: The Cowboy Trail is the United State's longest rails-to-trails conversion project, tracing 192 miles of the abandoned Chicago and North Western Railway corridor. It offers hikers, bikers and other adventurers options for any activity level, from relaxing family excursions to challenging long-distance routes.

    However you decide to enjoy the Cowboy Trail, be sure to slow down to take in stunning views of the valleys, rivers, woods and prairies along any of the trail's 221 bridges.
