Trailer Life Cream of the Crop Campsites: Victorian Acres Campground— Nebraska City, NE


This town along the Iowa border has a long, rich history and beautiful natural landscapes. Once you see the stately trees you’ll appreciate the community’s Arbor Day tradition (established in 1872). The Lewis & Clark Expedition stopped here in 1804 and many historic buildings still stand.

Victorian Acres RV Park & Campground is a lovely park surrounded by lush shade trees. On-site owners Angie and Dennis Sawyers welcome you to relax and explore all the wonders Nebraska City has to offer during your stay.

The park has fair gravel interior roads and 88 RV campsites on 26 acres. Pull-thru sites measure 30x 60’ and back-ins measure 28x 40’, each with a picnic table. You have the option of full hookups or water and electrical only. Both 30 amp and 50 amp service are available. The park also features a dump station, security and a public phone.

A rec hall is great for group gatherings, while the kids will enjoy the grassy playground and indoor game machine.

park-officeArea Attractions: Nebraska City is famous as the home of Arbor Day, which originated here in 1872. Situated along the Missouri River, permanent white settlement of the area began in 1846 at Fort Kearney (which was later moved to central Nebraska). Between the historic sites, museums and nature activities, you won’t be at a loss for things to do!

Spend the afternoon sampling local vintages at the area wineries. The area apple orchards make for plentiful stores of pies, turnovers and other treats and gifts. Yum!

Climate: Expect a humid Midwestern climate with hot summer temperatures. Summer thunderstorms and severe weather are also common.

    Stayed one night at V A very nice and clean campground, the owners were very friendly. The only draw back was no pool. Very easy to get in and out, big rig friendly.

  4. Our camping club stayed at Victorian Acres, and it is a great park. The owners are readily available, very friendly and attentive. It’s clean, easily accessible, and there are lots of things to do in the picturesque area, which is situated next to the Missouri River. I’d recommend it.

    P.S. Tornadoes can happen almost anywhere – such as the one that damaged a ranch in Umatilla County, Oregon, May 6, 2009.

    We stayed at this campground last week and I thought it was one of the prettiest places we’ve stayed. We only stayed one night but I would definitely go back there and stay for an extended time. Tornados are just another one of life’s challenges for those of us who live on the road.

  6. Right in TORNADO ALLEY! That’s why I go to southern Ofrgon when it get’s Hot & Humid and Tornado’s abound! Rick Vogel U.S.Army Retired (Been There Done That!)
