Book an RV in Platte County, Nebraska to explore this charming little city and rural area. Bigger cities, like Lincoln, Omaha, and Grand Island, are just about an hour and a half away.

This is one of the few RV parks in Columbus where all sites have lake views. Here you'll find electric hookups, but no sewer and water hookups.

Campsites are big-rig friendly, and there's a tent camping area as well. Enjoy picnics by the lake, photography, hiking, and so much more in the park.

Near Lake Babcock is Lake North, another popular camping and fishing destination. The best time and place for fishing is in the morning, close to the bridge that connects the park with Lake North. Several hiking trails, sports courts, and picnic shelters are also available by the lake.

Lookingglass Creek State Wildlife Management Area is located on the banks of Loup River, approximately 20 minutes west of the RV campground. This beautiful area encompasses 67 acres of grassland and woodland and features two small lakes. Visitors can enjoy walking, birdwatching, and mountain biking. This is a popular hunting and fishing location as well, particularly in the early morning. Further along the river, you'll find other wildlife management areas offering even more hunting opportunities.

Sherman Reservoir is about an hour and a half west of Loup Park Campground. This large lake covers almost 3,000 acres surrounded by nearly 5,000 acres of land, making it ideal for an array of recreational activities. You can visit the reservoir year-round for camping, hiking, birdwatching, wildlife watching, picnicking, and so much more. The lake is a popular fishing and hunting destination. Some of the animals you can find here include turkey, deer, dove, and rabbit. The park has an authorized dog training area as well.

Exploring the City

While RV camping in Columbus, you'll find a variety of interesting attractions to discover, including Platte County Museum.

Check out the fully furnished Gottschalk Log Houses, originally built in 1857. Other artifacts include vintage vehicles and an authentic barbershop. The museum also hosts regular events, so be sure to check the calendar to see what's on during your visit. Wander through the museum on your own, or sign up for a guided tour.

Andrew Jackson Higgins National Memorial is located in Pawnee Park on the shore of the Loup River. Andrew Higgins was a respected engineer who built innovative war boats during WWII. In the 1930s, he opened Higgins Industries, where he created his famous boat, Eureka. At the memorial, you can tour a life-sized replica of the “little boat that won the war.” This incredible museum is dedicated to the man himself, as well as the employees of Higgins Industries and all the soldiers and sailors who rode the boats.

While camping in a motorhome at Loup Park Campground, treat the family to a fun day by the pool. Visit the town’s water park located within Pawnee Park. The water park has a swimming pool with a platform diving board. There's also a lazy river, a flow rider, and a climbing wall. The huge water slides are sure to be a hit with the older kids in your group, while toddlers can cool off in the splash area and interactive boat.
