Thursday was our last day at the Prairie Band Casino campground. We had escaped the rains throughout most of our days here but, of course, on the day we are set to leave it begins raining early in the morning. We wanted to leave around 9:00 am, but by 10:00 am it was still raining. Finally, I'd had enough and put on the raincoat and flip flops and trudged outside to hook up the toad and make ready the rig for leaving. We left about 10:30 am (after I totally changed every bit of clothing I had on).
Walnut Creek Recreation Area just on the south side of Papillion, Nebraska. The drive was about 2 1/2 hours and uneventful after we got out of the rain.
CNN Money Magazine source cited at the bottom of the pennant. Sure enough, Papillion, NE was voted #5 on the list in 2011. We have never been in any part of Nebraska before, but I found this campground when I was searching for some minor league baseball teams to watch along our travel routes. I love minor league baseball because it's usually exciting to watch and inexpensively priced. You can get a good, up close ticket to watch future major league players early in their careers. We will be attending several games for the Omaha Storm Chasers. They are a AAA team (next step up is the Major Leagues) and are a farm team of the Kansas City Royals.
Our campground is small, but very nice. There are 45 sites here which all have concrete pads and paved roads throughout. There are either 30 or 50 amp electric at every site, but no sewer or water. There is a dump station within the cg and three potable water faucets scattered throughout the park for filling up the tank.
Thanks for dropping by to take a look!
Nice find on that campground. Even better, some AAA ball. I think the minor games are much more exciting, and you're not paying $10 for a hot dog like in the majors. :c)ReplyDelete
It looks like you have landed in another nice spot. I hope the rain hold off for you.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the Nebraska pictures, I have never been there. It looks like you all have really picked out some nice campgrounds. Hope you continue to stay safe. Jeff and I went over to the Schaeffers for the annual Oakview Home owners meeting and all brought desserts, there were lots of goodies there. Met the new neighbors behind us, they are real young.ReplyDelete
