During our stay in April 2021, this campground was called Country View Campground. It is now called KOA Ogallala. It’s a Journey Park by KOA definition. It’s a little confusing because if you look at the two websites the addresses while close are different as are the phone numbers. They are also listed as two separate locations.
I tried to get more information by calling the “Country View Campground” phone number and a message indicated they are now KOA Ogallala. It stated they were closed for the winter and their website was being updated. Use the link below to access the Country Views website page for more information. As we are a few months behind in our reviews we almost didn’t post this one due to the ownership change.
We decided to move forward with this review because we feel there are certain things that you can’t change and the overall layout is pretty much the same for now. Since it’s now a KOA you can probably expect them to add things like deluxe sites and a dog park. As you read this review and check out the video just keep in mind this campground has changed from Country View to KOA since our stay.
This campground is located at 120 Road East 80. It’s about 1.5 miles south of Interstate 80 in Ogallala Nebraska. It is definitely an easy in/easy out campground making it a great place to grab a night or two rest before getting back on the road. There are also a number of long sites so if you just wanted to pull in for the night and not unhook you can easily do so. That is exactly what we did.
Once pulling into the campground you will drive straight in towards the back where you will find the office. The office was small with some small items to purchase. They did have ice. It was also a Passport America park when we stayed there so it was only $20 plus tax. Now that it’s a KOA it is no longer a Passport America park. You will have to use your KOA value card for any discounts.
As you turned in and head towards the office in the rear of the park you will have sites on both your right and left side. Both sides are full hook-up pull-through sites. The sites on your left are the longer sites and that is where we stayed. The section we stayed in was close enough to level so we needed no leveling blocks under the tires.
On the right side as you pull in were shorter full hook-up pull-throughs. There was also an area that had a couple of horseshoe pits. Behind the sites on the right side (the west side) was a large parking lot filled with Fed Ex trailers. During our stay, we heard no noise coming from this yard or the interstate. We use a box fan at night so that seems to block out a lot of noise…lol. The only downside to our stay was that we woke up to snow…in April…lol.
Back Near The Office
As you approached the office the pool was on the right side. Since we were traveling in the off-season the pool was closed during our stay. Across from the office were the playground and a building that housed the laundry room and restrooms. There was a large building that we assume was a maintenance building across from the playground. Behind the office at the back of the park was the tent camping section.
The Last Section
There is one more section that continues eastward past the restrooms and laundry building that has about 10 more full hook-up pull-through sites. During our stay, it appeared that these sites may have been seasonal or long-term sites. Now that this campground is owned by KOA we don’t know if they will offer long-term or seasonal sites. We also don’t know if they will even be open year-round.
Date Of Our Stay: 4/18-4/20/21
Cost: $28.20 With Passport America
Our Review Summary
KOA Ogallala (Formerly Country View Campground)
We used this park just to get off the road and relax for the night. It definitely served that purpose. The site was long enough for us to pull in and not unhook, it was easy in/easy out, close to the interstate and we even found a pizza place to deliver… lol. For the $20 we paid it was well worth it. Now that it has been bought by KOA it will remain to be seen what improvements will be made.
