Discover Onawa / Blue Lake KOA

Onawa/Blue Lake KOA campground is set in one of the most unspoiled areas of the United States. In the delightful town of Onawa and less than an hour's drive from Omaha, it oozes small-town charm. If you’re looking for a quiet place to pull up in your RV rental and just generally get away from it all, then you might have found your slice of paradise right here just by the border of Iowa and Nebraska.

Space for even the largest RV camping setups, the campground can accommodate big rigs up to 93 feet in length, with amenities including fish cleaning stations, boat parking, a boat launch, fishing docks, dog walk areas, full hookups with 20, 30, or 50 amp service, and a playground for the kids.

Onawa/Blue Lake KOA sits right on the shore of Blue Lake and offers those interested in fishing the ideal location for their next vacation. Where else could you catch your fish and have it ready for dinner within minutes? Here, bluegill, channel catfish, largemouth bass, northern pike, and white crappie are all easily found in the lake right beside your Onawa campervan rental.

If fishing isn’t for you, there’s still plenty to do, with the option to rent a paddleboat for exploring Blue Lake or a bicycle for exploring the many trails surrounding the campground.

The Great Outdoors

There’s not much need to venture farther than just off of the steps of your RV rental, but when you book an RV in Monona County and want to explore more than just what Onawa/Blue Lake KOA has to offer, the local area has plenty to see.

On those hot summer days, there’s nothing like taking a nice refreshing dip in the water, and while Onawa/Blue Lake KOA does have its very own pool, if you’re looking for an experience that’s a little wilder, hop in your rental RV and make your way over to Tekamah where you’ll find the brightest blue waters at Summit Lake.

Summit Lake Recreational Area boasts a 145-acre lake which is perfect for swimming, boating, and fishing. It also features 345 acres of surrounding land for those extra long dog walks or hiking adventures.

Drive 30 minutes south to Little Sioux, and you’ll be met with the hiking trails of your dreams in Loess Hills State Forest. With rolling countryside, babbling brooks, and forest paths to follow, you’ll feel as though you stumbled into a fairy tale.

If you’ve not had enough of driving your Onawa RV rental for the day, head just a little farther down the road to Pisgah, a town that has stood still in time yet been perfectly maintained by its residents. Stop by the old gas station and take a look at the fire engine that used to serve the town and its residents, or simply stop by the old cafe where you’re always welcome for a chat and slice of pie.

Exploring the Area

The best way to describe Onawa is that it’s as cute as a button. This tiny town is home to less than 3,000 residents, and it’s the kind of place where you can spend a few days. While this town might be pretty small, it certainly isn’t lacking in comfort or convenience, with a movie theater, coffee shops, bars, and loads of restaurants.

If you happen to find yourself at the local grocery store in town to stock up on snacks for your RV rental, be sure to check out the live bait vending machine right outside - see, told you it was convenient here.

Hop in that Onawa camper rental and head north, and before you know it, you’ll be entering Sioux City. In recent years, this small city has grown enormously in popularity with families looking for an affordable place to raise their families - and because of that, it means that it offers loads of activities for the kids. A highlight is definitely the children’s museum. If you’re in the area on a Friday, head to Pearl Street Park for Food Truck Fridays where you’ll be able to sample some of the best cuisines that the area has to offer, with tacos, hot dogs, coffee, cold-pressed juice, BBQ, and noodles all to be found.

For the couples on a romantic road trip, heading south to Omaha might be what you’re looking for, with fine dining restaurants, spas, golf courses, and cocktail bars galore all within an hour's drive from your travel trailer rental at Onawa/Blue Lake KOA.
