In Cody, NE, take US Rt. 20 east 7.1 miles to Samuel R. McKelvie
National Forest sign in Nenzel, NE (State Rt. 16F Spur). Turn
right onto Rt. 16F and go 18.4 miles to campground sign. Turn
right at sign into campground.

The elevation is 3,180 ft.
The campground is situated in a man-made forest of pines. It is
surrounded by Nebraska's sandhills and has got to be the state's
best kept secret. Except for the singing of birds, occasional
lowing of cattle and gentle breezes whistling through the pines,
the campground is serene and soooo peaceful. Care of the
campground is obviously a labor of love even to the point of
providing free firewood. Although dry camping, the campground is
suited for either the tenter or RV camper.
