There is free WiFi, however, we are unable to report its usage available as we had our own WiFi hotspot. The dump station is located near the entrance but on a traffic circle in the park. It’s not really designed for big rigs of our 5th wheel toy hauler’s size and truck. . The laundry and bath houses were clean and within walking distance to the sites.
There is a multi-purpose room available for rent for events and activities. It can accommodate up to 60 people and includes a stove, oven and refrigerator in the kitchen.
How to get there:
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.
What to do in the area?
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 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!
Thumbs up or thumbs down?
We gave Robidoux RV Park
3.5 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.
There are some long-term campers and RV’s that reside there however, they were quiet and their sites were mostly tidy.
The sunsets over Scotts Bluff National Monument are spectacular! The park is quiet. The camp host led us right to our site. He even changed to the next site over so we could enjoy a better view of Scotts Bluff from our toyhauler back patio deck (ramp).
Thumbs up! We plan on returning again! Gering is an adorable little city that is rich in history and great people!
