Scenic Park Campground, South Sioux City, Nebraska

I have never done this before, blog about a campground. Most of them are just too drab, unexceptionable, forgettable. Not this one. This is one of the best city campgrounds ever, matching some of the best private RV parks, for 1/3 the price.

This campground has spacious level sites, some in the woods, some in the open. Most are backup but there are about a dozen pull-throughs. Most sites are full hookups, water, sewer, electric, TV cable with 80+ channels and WiFi that actually works. All this for $23/night. We stayed for a week and only had to pay for 6 nights,about $19/night.

The entire campground is well groomed

Diva sits in her spot. That riverboat is across the Missouri River, in Sioux City, Iowa.  It is a casino but has just declared bankruptcy. Don't worry, however. Hard Rock is building a new casino nearby.

This shot is from across the river. If you look closely to the group of campers to the left you can see Diva!

Well, here's a close up.


A second part of the campground is more open. I think these are mostly full time sites.

All close to the Missouri River.

Scenic Park is a city park with miles of bike trails, about 6 baseball diamonds, some soccer fields, basketball courts, playground equipment for all ages. A full fledge YMCA and indoor and outdoor pool are in the park.

What a treat it was to find such a nice RV park at such a reasonable rate. Sue Brown, who manages the campground, is helpful and charming. The park keeps about 10-20 sites on a first come first serve basis.

  1. Wonderful campground - hope to see you back here for Mandie's Tri-State rally July 17-20 (details on AirForums).

    1. Thanks for the heads up. We will be at Hilton Head Island, SC starting that weekend, without Diva, for a two week beach vacation. Life's rough!

  2. Hi Frank! I was planning our trip out to Yellowstone this summer and stumbled upon this post. Thanks for the thorough review and the pictures! We'll be staying here en route to South Dakota. Hope to meet you someday soon with the Louisiana unit! - Kelly and Brian Carlisle
