KOA West Omaha

KOA West Omaha is located about a mile and a half off I-80 (exit 432) on US-6 in Gretna Nebraska. Even though it’s close to the interstate, vehicle/traffic noise was not an issue. It’s kind of a strange entrance as you will turn into the driveway a little bit up the road and have to come back to the office.

Getting To The Office

As you turn into the driveway and head back to the office you will be driving alongside US-6 which will be on your left side. On your right side will be 5 RV pull-through sites and 2 back-in sites. As you turn to the right towards the office the playground and jumping pillow will be on your right side. The K-9 park, swimming pool, and golf course will be on your left side. You finally pull up to the office on your right side.

Check-In

We had made a reservation from the road so check-in was easy-peasy, as most KOA check-ins are. The camp store was of moderate size and fairly well stocked. We were there in the off-season so most amenities and activities were closed. Behind the office building was a propane refilling station. There were also bathrooms/showers and a laundry room.

KOA West Omaha Site Map

Brief Overview Of The Layout

The best way to describe the layout of the park is the area the office is in is like a big square with an oblong section off the back of the square. The office would be at the bottom right of the square. The bottom middle of the square (towards US-6) would be a section that houses a community room, tent sites, and a mixture of deluxe and basic cabins. In the middle of all that is a volleyball court and horseshoe pit.

Moving Through The Square

The rest of that “square” consists of all pull-through full hook-up RV sites. This is the section we were at. The sites were long enough where we did not have to unhook but they were very skinny. We also found this section very muddy. Getting in and out of the site was easy. All our hook-ups worked as expected.

The Final (Back) Section

To the extreme rear of the park was an oval-shaped area consisting of 2.5 rows of full hook-up pull-through sites. These sites appeared to us as they were meant for longer-term or even seasonal RV’ers. If you are assigned to this section be advised that there are several “buddy” sites so if you are not looking for that type of site pay attention to where you are assigned. I believe those sites are 220 & 221.

Final Thoughts

This was a great park for us to relax when we came off the road after driving all day. We even stayed a second day. The only thing (besides the sites being so narrow) that was a little annoying was how muddy the sites (park) were. Other than that we enjoyed our stay. Should we ever be in the area again we would stay at this campground again.
