Our only issue was that we couldn't set up our satellite for southern exposure because of trees, and there isnt a dog park to our dogs play & run off leash. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. Good Job Offutt!!

Spent one night on our way across country and was surprised when we pulled in and discovered all the water spigots open. They decided to turn the water off and didn't tell us when we made reservations a month earlier. Luckily we had a full fresh water tank. One of our neighbors told us about the bathrooms in the boathouse building and gave us the combination to get in. We never saw a camp host, but there was someone at the boathouse, when we went in the next morning, who directed us to the tank-fill spigot in between spaces 3 & 4 next to the horse shoe pits. Sites had nice concrete pads with gravel approach and departures and had plenty of room around them for slides, awnings, and such. WiFi was good, with no password required and had 2 or 3 bars depending on which antenna you used. Showers were inserts into older stalls, so they were very small for my 6' plus frame. Bathrooms were dated, but very clean with plenty of hot water and good pressure. We stayed here to visit the SAC Air & Space Museum, (which is about an hour away past Gretna), so we didn't use any other amenities. Aircraft and trains were heard but never disturbed us - your sensitivity may vary. We'll stay here again, but hopefully the water will still be on!

Nice park. Real nice. Employees at the Boathouse were very friendly. Pull thru site was long enough for my 41' fifthwheel and longbed truck. Good water pressure, o.k. Wi-Fi. Park is off base, so no gates to contend with. Quiet location. The occasional "sound of freedom" was not a nuisance. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Great campground and staff! Slightly dated facilities, but everything is clean and well kept up. Didn't experience any issues about being near the end of the runway and aircraft noise (seems most of the larger ones here have new engines and are much quieter!). The pads are long enough for our 38' fifth wheel and our full-sized crew cab dually doesn't stick out onto the road. LOML wasn't impressed with the laundry facilities, but there's a laundromat a few miles away.

Cannot say enough good things about the Camp hosts! We called at the last minute due to having an issue with our 5th wheel while passing through Omaha. Sammie was more than accommodating, told us we would have to stay in dry camp but at this point we just wanted to get off the road and see how bad our problem was. Luckily for us she had a cancellation and put us in a full hook up. They were full the whole time we were there (3 nights) but we had a full hook up site every night. Probably didn't hurt that this was one of the hottest weeks so far this summer but we were able to sleep in AC every night thanks to Sammie and Lee. I would highly recommend this camp to any and everyone. We will definitely be back!

Great famcamp. Had reservations so had a nice back-in level spot. Check in was easy. Loved the location on the base lake. Could fish, rent canoes/kayaks, great kids playground and it appeared they were installing a new interpretive area for kids. Located on the backside of the flightline (not on base). Heard some RC-135s taking off and got some great pictures of them taking off into the sunset over the base lake. Access to the base is just a few miles away but easy to get to. Lots to do in the Omaha area: great zoo, appeared to have some nice parks in/around Omaha, bike trails nearby, nice golf courses. Did not use the showers/laundry but checked them out. The showers appeared clean and taken care of. There was a stackable washer/dryer that appeared to be free and then a commercial size washer and dryer that cost (minimal). Would definitely plan to return and stay longer.

There seems to be a pattern here. I arrived without a reservation and asked for a site that was dark and quiet. She put me in Site #1, between the only two street lights in the campground. It was across from one of the picnic areas. Sites 1-10 are Jack & Jill sites. You park butt to butt and share W/E hookups. The sites are about 25' long, there is a tiny parking pad, grass patio w/ table and a bare spot. When I asked about the bare spot, they told me there were concrete patios but they got broken and weeds grew up so they removed them and planted grass. They couldn't have put in a new patio? You may not park on the grass, so if your tow vehicle doesn't fit in the site, you have to put it down in the extra parking. These pitiful sites are the same price as the larger, nicer sites in the other loop. Those sites all have normal hookups and room to park the tow vehicle. If they reserve the pull-throughs for overnight and short stays, I didn't see any empty. The restrooms and laundry are well away from the campsites so we didn't use them. The lake was beautiful and there were plenty of recreational opportunities. The main base is miles from the FAMCAMP.

Easy to get to, great price, solid WiFi. Level concrete slab to park on. Flight Ops going on, but that's to be expected. An occasional train will go by, but not a problem.

R.L. left this review using the Directory software: - We called to check availability when we were about an hour out. Received good directions from the person manning the phone. We were assigned a pull through without requesting one, possibly because we were only staying one night. The camp was about 75% full. We spoke to several people about the narrow toll bridge and got as many opinions. Some said definitely stay away, others said it's fine, just go slow. When leaving we took E Mission ave over the toll bridge to I-29. yes it is a little narrow but no worse than many bridges and roads we've traveled. Unless you're a very nervous driver it's fine. The park has a lot to offer for recreation. The deck at the boathouse overlooking the river is a good place to relax in the shade. The hookups were a bit of a reach at the back of the site with the sewer drain in the neighbor's seating area. A nice clean quiet place except for the occasional train.

GREAT famcamp! Hosts are outstanding. A little difficult to get to because gate closest to the Base Lake facilities is closed and you have to follow the above directions through Bellevue. Be sure to turn when you see the Offutt Base Lake sign. It is a newer sign that shown on this website and FAMCAMP is difficult to see. When you cross the RR tracks, turn right and follow the road around the lake to RV check-in.

Found the personnel outstanding. Its a beautiful RV park right on the lake. Had a hard time finding it with the GPS coordinates confusing ended up in a corn field going towards a farm house ended up following the written directions.
Great fam camp, really taken care of and staff were really friendly. stayed three nights really enjoyed entire stay. we will definitely utilize this camp again.

Agree with all positive comments but want to remind visitors that Water pressure is 80+ pounds. A pressure regulator might be a good idea. Heard and read some comments about the Bellevue toll bridge but was pleased to see it handled our diesel pusher quite well and is worth the toll.

Our stay was excellent and very restful. The reservations phone doesn't start till 10:30. Can't really add anything to what everyone else has already stated. One update; one of the two washers is still broken and not due for replacement till FY14. Also the commissary is closed on Tuesday, until.............

We really enjoyed our stay at the lake campground in our pull through full hook up site. We were here for the third of July (fourth of July fireworks and celebration) and really enjoyed the stay. We did not experience the visits to the Bath House and Laundry room since we have that capability on board our RV. I did enjoy the run around the lake. The commissary is getting ready to cut back their opening days due to the budget cuts. Beginning 8 July, they are going to be closed Monday and Tuesday. Not sure when or if that will change.

Great campground, secluded on a nice large lake with a fairly well supplied shop which sells fishing permits and do canoe and kayak rentals. Spots are pretty nice with level concrete pads, a few are a little tough to back into but not too bad at all, the back in spots near the lake provide the best views. Previous reviewer is correct, two sewer hoses are a must for most spots. Bath house and laundry are a little far away and the laundry facility leaves some to be desired. Lake is great for fishing with a small dock and multiple spots along the lake with good access. You can run all the way around the lake and it is almost exactly two miles around. A nice campground and can't be beat if you have business at Offutt or in Omaha, just watch the toll bridge coming off the interstate, it is a tight squeeze with two way traffic.

Reservations & host were outstanding as well as very organized. Called in the afternoon for availability and was told they had full hookups, 50 amp sites available. Arrived around 1830 and the camp host meet us & escorted us to the site. In fact, she immediately directed us to a different site, because she saw our rooftop, directv dish. FYI.....Very level, cement pads, but make sure you have a long sewer hose!! 50 amp sites are $20.00, and 30 amp sites are $18.00. A lot of sites were empty, in both 50 & 30 amp area. Limited facilities & stock at the camp store. One would really need to go over to the AFB.
