Do open fields, RV camping by the riverbank, and pleasant shade from scattered cottonwood trees sound appealing to you? How about an RV park that isn’t just family-friendly, but ADA accessible and welcoming of pets, too? A place where you can enjoy some peaceful fishing by the river, or spot a cute rabbit or beaver, doesn’t that sound pretty good? If you agree, then you’d better start your search for an RV in Dawson County so that you can go camping at Gothenburg Blue Heron Campground right away.
Staying at this Gothenburg campground means that you’ll have the best of times at the playground or in the pool, unless you’d rather play some volleyball or do your laundry, of course. Your camper rental will have access to 30/50 amp service, and you can get your energy from whatever you can find in the British Good store - prepare for some tea and biscuits. You can also use the grill or the firepit, and go for a walk on the on-site hiking trail to make sure you really have an appetite.
As the name suggests, you’ll be close to charming Gothenburg when RV camping at Gothenburg Blue Heron Campground, as well as the cozy village of Brady and the larger cities of North Platte and Lexington. Grand Island will also be close to your Gothenburg RV rental, and all these places have a plethora of culture, history, and entertainment to offer their visitors. Gothenburg campers will also have access to several hiking trails, all with great views and lovely spots for a picnic.
One of the great places to hike that you can easily get to from your rental motorhome at Gothenburg Blue Heron Campground is the Oregon Trail that was used by pioneers trying to start their new lives by heading west. You can follow wheel tracks that have stood the test of time, and see the popular campsites and even some graves of pioneers who lost their lives on the trail. The Oregon Trail was followed by several other ones, including the Mormon Trail which you can access here as well.
You won’t have to use your RV rental at Gothenburg Blue Heron Campground for this area either, because it’s located in the lovely Gothenburg that you know so well by now. Indeed, Lake Helen Recreation Area is part of the village, and other than the beautiful artificial reservoir where you can go fishing and boating, there’s a frisbee golf course, a concrete exercise trail, and playgrounds at your service. You can also have a picnic under one of the pavilions, or check out the historically registered covered bridge.
Just because you rent a camper near Gothenburg Blue Heron Campground doesn’t mean you have to stay in the immediate area; go explore Samuel R. McKelvie National Forest and the other Nebraska natural areas for a day or two. This is an excellent place to spot some deer and do some bird watching, and the hiking and mountain biking is out of this world. Since this forest is mostly grasslands, skiing and prairie lake fishing are two great options when you’re satisfied with your wildflower photos.
Sure, you could go to the railroad museum or see some live theater in North Platte, but you can also stay near your RV rental in Gothenburg and check out all the heritage, attractions, and events in the village. Like the Harvest Festival with parades, parties, food, and a dog-n-jog, along with craft beer, art, and tournaments, or the ever so popular July rodeo where you’ll see cowboy hats and boots wherever you look.
If you’re not in town for those festivities, there are still many things to see and do to make sure that you get a proper feel for what it is, and was like, to live in Gothenburg. You can take a look at what used to be the Lincoln Highway, bringing people and their belongings from coast to coast until the 1910s, or admire the unique Swedish crosses that have served as a lasting symbol of the Swedish heritage - visit the public library afterward to find out even more about these Swedish-American children.
Continue your search for knowledge at the Gothenburg Historical Museum followed by the two Pony Express Stations, and if you feel full of history - go fill up your tummy instead at one of the local restaurants where you can choose between fast food, diners, grills, and coffee shops. Buy gifts for friends and family in one of the boutiques, and don’t forget to set a date for when you’ll next rent an RV near Gothenburg Blue Heron Campground.
