What a Great way to spend one of the last weekends of summer. We came to camp and see our son that goes to Chadron State College. Wow, this Park has so much to offer....tomahawk throwing, archery, swimming, trail rides, fishing, and paddle boats. We had a Great time. Shower facilities were clean and showers were hot. It was a fantastic long weekend and we look forward to visiting again.
