West Omaha / NE Lincoln KOA

The Great Plains state of Nebraska has more to offer than expansive fields of corn. While there’s certainly a lot of farmland in the “Corn Husker” state, there’s plenty more to enjoy, and one of the best places to base yourself for that trip is West Omaha/NE Lincoln KOA in Gretna.West Omaha/NE Lincoln KOA has full hookups for your travel trailer rental, including 50-amp electrical service. The sites here are large enough to accommodate RVs of up to 80 feet in length. But what really makes this campground great are the amenities. In the summer, you can cool off in the swimming pool or rent a bicycle to cruise around some back roads just outside the park’s gate. There’s even a mini-golf course for family-friendly fun. If you’re bringing pets along, there’s a park where they can run around and stretch their legs a bit.Book an RV in Sarpy County, and you can see all that eastern Nebraska has to offer. A road trip through a Great Plains state also would not be complete without seeing some of its strange roadside attractions, of which there are many in Nebraska. The World’s Largest Ball of Stamps in Omaha, a Giant Paper Airplane in Lincoln, and a lighthouse strangely perched on the banks of the Platte River, thousands of miles from the nearest ocean.

The Great Outdoors

Nebraska is often associated with long stretches of flat plains, and there are plenty of ways to enjoy nature when camping at West Omaha/NE Lincoln KOA. Omaha has several great parks that are perfect for picnics and afternoon strolls. Pioneer Courage Park, in the heart of the city, has life-sized statues depicting pioneer life and the livestock that these intrepid travelers had to maneuver across the plains. For a more natural setting, there’s Chalco Hills Recreation Area on the west end of town. Paved walking paths encircle Wehrspann Lake and are fantastic for joggers looking to squeeze in a short run during the campervan rental vacation.The Sunken Gardens is another popular place for a leisurely stroll when RV camping near Lincoln, Nebraska. It was voted one of the “Best Gardens to Visit in the U.S. and Canada” by National Geographic. With 30,000 annual flowers, the park presents a colorful carpet of plant life that changes throughout the seasons. It’s frequently used as a wedding venue, so don’t be suppressed if you see white dresses and tuxedos during your stroll.Just outside the RV campground is the Platte River and Platte River State Park, and unlike much of the state, there are some serious hills to contend with there. The park has over ten miles of hiking trails and two observation towers to climb for some expansive views of the surrounding area. If you’re up for a swim, the Platte River has some excellent swimming holes for a relaxing afternoon in the water.

Exploring the City

Lincoln and Omaha are both vibrant cities, with loads of fine dining options, international cuisine, and tasty breweries to wash it all down with. Omaha’s Old Market entertainment district is a great place to spend the afternoon or evening, with lots of unique shops, cool street art, and almost 50 restaurants and bars to choose from. In Lincoln, you’ll want to head to the Railyard District on Canopy Street, where you’ll find art installations, a seasonal ice rink, and over a dozen delicious restaurants.The Durham Museum is another must whenever you’re visiting Omaha with a rental RV. Housed inside Omaha’s former Union Station, it’s a masterpiece of Art Deco architecture. Inside it are numerous exhibits regarding railroad history: model train sets, restored rolling stock, and historic storefronts from the World War II era.However, if you’re heading to Nebraska’s capital of Lincoln, you’ll probably want to tour some of the government facilities including the capitol building and governor’s mansion. The city is home to some pretty quirky museums too, like the International Quilt Museum, which houses one of the largest collections of quilts. If you love fabric art, this should be a priority when renting an RV near Lincoln.If you’re searching for an attraction near your Gretna campground, consider checking out the Strategic Air Command Museum in Ashland, just outside the KOA. On display are some of the most famous bomber aircraft from World War II through the present, along with a decommissioned intercontinental ballistic missile. While much of the facility focuses on war and nuclear weapons, there’s also a fantastic exhibit on how technology designed for combat has been used in space exploration.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
