Robidoux RV Park, Gering NE

Robidoux RV Park
Gering, NB

Gering is a small town in NB and was just about half way between our two destination parks. I really didn't expect much honestly as the park is city owned and operated, and doesn't have much in the way of amenities.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the park while fairly small, 49 sites and 10 overflow sites, was in wonderful condition. All the roads in the park are paved and the RV pads are cement, and each has a small concrete patio. There is spacious room between the sites, and lush green grass surrounds all of the sites. The grass is neatly trimmed and each site also has healthy well maintained plants surrounding the patio.

We paid just under $30 a night for our 50 amp FHU site. Site #8 was a spacious pull through end site. The only hitch was the turn getting into the site. The two roads on either side of the site are at a 90 degree angle but the spaces are at a 45 degree angle, so we unhooked the Jeep to make the tight turn into the site. It wasn't a big deal though as we planned on disconnecting the Jeep to do some shopping the next day. Without the Jeep attached I turned hard into the site, but had to back up once to have enough room to navigate the turn. Exiting the site with the Jeep hooked up was not an issue.

There is not a lot of extra amenities at the park, in the way of a pool or hot tub, but there is a half court basketball area and a playground set for the kids. There is a bath and shower house, but I didn't get the chance to inspect them. This park is right next to a city owned Amphitheater with a large gravel parking lot that I am sure see's a lot of use throughout the year. It is also in great condition and looked ready to host an event at any time.

Our on board Wifi worked well here, and video streaming was not a problem. The park does not offer Wifi or cable. There is no fenced dog run, but with so much grass walking Heidi was a breeze.

Interestingly the little town isn't just a flat spot in the corn fields either. The town is surrounded by hills and sandstone bluffs and peaks. In fact a local attraction is within a few miles of the RV park. Scotts Bluff National Monument is a few miles from the park and entry into the park is free. It stands as a 500' tall monument that the early settlers and trappers used as a guide to find their way across what was otherwise a relatively flat surrounding landscape, and worth the time to stop for an hour or so to visit.

Just for clarity, NE is Nebraska, NB is New Brunswick.

Yes, we stumbled across this location about 2yrs ago. Great park. I believe it is run by the city.

Nice writeup on Robidoux though, Sarge. I have stayed there as well. It's close to my daughter and SIL's home and has all the features we need for a few day's visit. Actually just tried to book a few days there in mid- August but they are sold out, apparently due to a balloon festival taking place during that week. But we found a spot at the Riverside RV park not too far away. Only issue there is, the pullthrough sites are so narrow they won't allow you to open all your slides; one side only!!

We stopped there for a couple nights in 2015 to see Scott's Bluff after a coming from Cheyenne with a stop at Ft. Laramie. It was a good stay and we enjoyed our time there. Something to keep in mind if you are in that area is a real piece of Americana and not that far away. Carhenge in Alliance, NE is about an hour's drive from Scott's Bluff. It was a fun daytrip. Talking to other folks who were there the day we were, they were from all over the country, and all had to see this quirky little place while in the "neighborhood".

We stayed at Robidoux in 2018 and thought it was a great place then. Chimney Rock is a short drive south, it can be seen from atop Scotts Bluff Monument. Short drive north is Agate Fossil Beds National Monument. There is an interpretative center that gets deep into fossils in a hurry. Couple of the walking trails were informative though. And the previously mention Carhenge was a good stop as well.

We stayed there recently also. We were very pleased with the park and visited Scottsbluff, Toadstool and Fossil Butte while there. You can actually see a little piece of our coach in one of your pictures, so apparently we were there at the same time!

Haven't stayed in Robidoux specifically, but it is typical of small town city run parks in NE or other surrounding states.

Carhenge, in Alliance, is worth a side trip. A full-scale replica of Stonehenge built of used cars - strange but true.
