Campground/RV Park: Tomahawk RV Park – NEBRASKA
taxes): $20/night (tents are less)
within the town of Broken Bow, Nebraska.
Broken Bow is located on the railroad and considered a farming/ranching
town. The park has all the amenities one
could ask for; level gravel sites, easily in-easy out, children’s playground,
bath house, and within walking distance to the town square. We gave this park a 3.5 due to
non-availability of a laundry facility (we had to go into town), no campfires
or grills provided at each site and the close approximity to the railroad
crossing. However, recently within the
past couple years, Broken Bow has ‘quiet crossings’ (no whistle blows) except
for when signaled of impairment on the tracks.
The sites also are close together but that didn’t bother us because we
were always out learning about the area.
The park has a wonderful picnic pavilion with lots of picnic tables and
charcoal grills and lighting for evening dinners or picnics. The park was clean
and staff was minimal. We called ahead
of time to insure availability which they seem to always have. Their sites vary in size and is recommended
that you only use a site that coincides to your rig size; in other words, don’t
use the big rig sites if you have a small setup.
and ranching. It is about an hour drive
to Fort Hartstuff; a post Civil War
Cavalry Historic Park and a short drive to begin the Sand Hills Journey to
points west. There are small businesses
and café’s however, there is no Walmart in the town. There are two or three small grocery stores
that will meet your needs (they sell beer and wine in them!). Since we ride motorcycles, it’s a nice town
to camp overnight if needed in a tent.
