Nebraska State Park Fees

We'll be traveling through Nebraska this summer, and I was looking at the state parks website. In addition to site rental, they also charge a park entry fee for all motor vehicles entering a park.

So, has anyone camped at a NE state park in a motorhome pulling a toad that can tell me if you have to pay the park entry fee for each of them? With a campsite fee of $35, plus an $8 fee for a motorhome, plus another $8 for a toad, it would be more expensive for a W/E site there than a full hookup site at a nearby KOA.

Don't know about Nebraska but some Kansas SP even charges for use of trails, plus extra cars.

FWIW, Most of the funding for the state parks come from the folks using them.

We've not used the state parks but have used some awesome county and city parks as we explored and without reservations.

Do you have a National Parks pass?

I discovered Oregon recognized the National Parks pass for their state parks.

Very nice of them.

Since you haven't gotten a valid response, call one of the parks and ask. Would be interested to know the answer.

Michigan State Parks used to be that way where they charged you fees up and above the overnight fee. Every time you drove your toad out of the campground and returned, is was another fee. They have since changed that.

Some like PA. State parks charge out of state RVers higher camping fees. Ohio State Parks want your vacation business and charge everyone the same. Just one fee to camp. No charge to use just the beach or picnic area.
