Home, not far away from home. - I grew up in Chadron, the Park was one of my favorite spots to go as a child. I really enjoyed the paddle boats and the lake as well as the untamed forest. That whole area, even town, is all a fond memory for me that I hope to share with my children.
HOT showers! - Chadron State Park is a gorgeous place.The grounds were meticulously maintained; great camp sites. Sadly however, we will not return for the simple reason that the bath house facilities were extremely poor. The bath house itself poorly ventilated - hot and stuffy. The shower was scorching hot and not adjustable. I complained, but it was still hot the next day. I was told others also had complained. Then, when I went to get clothes out of the dryer, a blast of hot steam hit me as I opened the door.I thought something was on fire, but the dryer had no vent to the outside. I think the state of Nebraska needs to pay more attention to these amenities that many campers still require. It was of great discomfort to try to stay in the shower long enough to bathe and wash my hair. I wondered how small children could stand it at all.
awesome people awesome history - absolutely excellent place if you like to relax. Excellent trout fishing ! Excellent history. I am a western Nebraska native and grew up an hour away never getting all i could from the fort. Awesome!!!
Trail rider - I have been to the park many times to view the native american history. The fact that Crazy Horse died here is special to me. The last time I visited we shared the park with members of the Arapahoe,Sioux and Cheyenne nations who were doing an honor ride to Chadron. Quite amazing. I brought my horse and found the stables very accommodating. The trails rewarding and the experience satisfying. My very favorite place.
