Robidoux RV Park, managed by the City of Gering, has 35 amply-spaced, nicely manicured, level concrete/asphalt sites, each surrounded by bluegrass and open spaces with a breath taking view of Scotts Bluff National Monument. Though it’s ‘city managed’, its not ‘in’ the city; its on the outskirts.  Each campsite includes paved drives and patios and picnic tables.

There is free Wi-Fi, however, we are unable to report its usage available as we had our own Wi-Fi hotspot.  The dump station was not designed for big rigs; it is located near the entrance but on a traffic circle in the park.  There are some long-term campers and RV’s that reside there however, they were quiet and their sites were mostly tidy.  The laundry and bath houses were clean and within walking distance to the sites.

The Robidoux RV Park is easy to get to, right on the main road from Route 71 South which blended into Five Rocks Road in the southern part of Gering.  Gering has all the stores and amenities of a decent size small city.  Lots of restaurants, a Home Depot, Walmart and grocery stores are plentiful.  

We gave Robidoux RV Park 4 stars out of 5 because there were no sewer connections at each site and the dump station’s in-accessibility.   As well, some of the sites were not designed for big rigs; although we were lucky as we had reservations and inquired about the best site for our big rig.

However, the sunsets over Scotts Bluff National Monument were spectacular!  The park was quiet and respectful.  The camp host led us right to our site; even changed to the next site over so we could enjoy a better view of Scotts Bluff from our toyhauler back patio deck (ramp). We plan on returning again!  Gering is an adorable little city that is rich in history and great people!  The park is located about a 5 minute drive to Scotts Bluff National Monument and short drive to the old Oregon Trail that hosts Chimney Rock, Courthouse and Jail House Rocks, the Pony Express and others.  It is also a couple hours drive to Agate Fossil Beds.  A beautiful part of the country. Great for families, motorcyclists, and all ages!
