    I went for a ride to my 2 fav places this morning just to get out...i drove by the red barn that we all rented back when mom and dad were alive...it sleeps like 30 in bunks and nephews/neices
    Grandkids and all siblings were there.
    While there i swung by the little cabin my wife and rented for our honeymoon 24 yrs ago...looks the same as it did back then.
    I almost got attacked by mama
    Along the way...lol...its hard to snap a pic when your back peddling

    Well, I read that wrong. I thought you were attacked by your wife, and you were back peddling to get out of it. Glad you had pictures.

    Before that it was all cabins and you can camp in teepees
    And a few tent spots.

    I didn't think she was mad at you. Go to the other gutter.

    First time I went to Platter River SP, I thought they needed a campground. I'm glad they finally put one in, but they could have carved out a beautiful campground around the trees. They leveled the area and put concrete everywhere. It is a great park with a great location, but sure wish they would have put the campground within the trees.... I still go there though.

    I tell everybody the same thing...I never got that part.
    Right across the road from where the campground is there is a meadow surrounded by mature trees on each side.
    I think me and my wife are gonna try one of the 3 new glamping cabins...In late winter when are itching to get out
    of the house.

    They look nice! My brother and sisters did rent that big barn one time, I'm not sure why me my wife and kids didn't make it, but my brother and sisters still talk about what a great time they had.

    It all looks like Fort Kearny campgrounds to me! I really liked my stop there and I talk about that place foundly. I shoulda stayed two more days, and driven thru Iowa all day to get home. Just didn't know any better LOL
