Simple is always best when it comes to camping, and that's exactly what you'll find at Riverside Park Campground in Neligh, Nebraska. This RV campground's individual campsites are up for grabs on a first-come, first-serve basis and have camping pads, water, and electrical hookups (there is a dump station on-site too). Just drive in, drop your stabilizers, and you're all set; the RV park has WiFi so you can let folks back home know that you arrived safe and sound. Some of the campsites at Riverside Park Campground offer primitive RV camping (no hookups), and some allow tent camping. The campground's proximity to the Elk Horn River means you can go swimming or tubing anytime you want.
Once you're settled in, you are walking distance from Neligh, where you can take a leisurely stroll through the town. There is a historic mill site close to the campground, a wildlife museum learning center, a few urban parks, and a church. You can gas up your rental RV in town, and there's even a drive-in movie theater just outside of town. You can also stock up on groceries and any supplies you might be running low on. Don't forget to take your motorhome rental for a spin; it's one of the unique benefits of an RV vacation and an experience not to miss.
Search for an RV in Antelope County, and you'll have your pick of a fleet of RV units that are perfectly suited for outdoor adventures in the state of Nebraska. Once you're ready to head out and begin, point your RV rental towards Red-Wing State Wildlife Management Area. This bird habitat consists mostly of riparian tree stands with some intermittent grassland and marsh areas. Technically the park resides in a tallgrass prairie region, and it has the Elkhorn River flowing through it. It's a good place to observe the resident bird species and get some hiking in without presenting too much of a challenge (you might encounter rolling hills and some slopes, but nothing more difficult than that).
Yellowbanks State Wildlife Management Area, near Battle Creek, is also situated around the Elkhorn River and is characterized by hardwood tree stands overlooking the river from steep riverine bluffs and a small grassy upland area. Yellowbanks is one of several areas that is connected to the Elkhorn Valley trail (which follows the similarly named river valley) and is a popular destination for birders. You can hike the area although there are no established trails, but the terrain is not difficult and offers panoramic views of this big sky country.
Fred Penn Park is on the outskirts of Neligh and is a popular destination for anglers looking to fish from the shoreline of Fred Penn Lake or the Elkhorn River, which runs past it. If fishing isn't your thing, it's also a great area for having a picnic and enjoying Nebraska's breathtaking vistas and surroundings.
Once you're ready to start enjoying the culture that Nebraska has to offer, you should check out the town of Albion; the town was named in 1872 as a result of a game of euchre. It's a quiet, friendly community with a sports bar where you can wile an afternoon or evening away, now that you've got your outdoors glow on. It's also small enough to take a relaxing stroll and enjoy the town's scenery, which includes several churches, a country club golf course (it's open to the public), and a dirt track raceway with weekly events. Albion has a small number of restaurants if you're feeling hungry; it doesn't have anything unique or offbeat, but the food and service are generally good.
Norfolk is another small town with some very interesting culture and a substantial list of celebrities who were born or lived there at some point. Model rocketry was invented in Norfolk in 1954 by a local businessman, and the town was home to the Norfolk Post Card Company, which later changed their name to Hallmark Cards. Norfolk has a museum and a waterpark, several entertainment outlets for young kids, and a nightlife scene for the not-so-young kids. It also has a solid restaurant scene with lots of variety; if you choose to dine here, you should be able to find almost anything you can think of.
Rent an RV near Neligh, Nebraska, and you'll be in the midst of beautiful outdoor scenery and activities and enough culture to satisfy an evening or two. Camping at Riverside Park Campground is one of the best ways to access all that this region has to offer.
