Full Service Camping, New Fees Come to Davis Creek Recreation Area

Campers now have access to electrical and water hook-ups at Davis Creek Recreation Area south of North Loup.  The 42 new full service camp sites, a new coin-operated shower house, and new vault toilets are part of a multi-phase improvement project at the recreation area. A second expansion phase, underway soon, will include a second boat ramp, a fish cleaning station, an RV sanitary dump, and a new parking area.

Tylr Naprstek of the Lower Loup NRD said this is the first time that a fee is charged for camping at Davis Creek.  A full service site with hook-ups will cost $19 a day and a primitive, no-service site will be $6 a day. A maximum of 14 days will be allowed for camping on any of the sites.  Camp sites are currently first come, first served, but  beginning April 19, campers will be able to reserve a camp site through an internet connection which will be linked to this web site. Reservations can also be made through Reserve America’s website: https://www.reserveamerica.com.  

The coin operated shower house will also be open.  Quarters will be required to activate and maintain the shower.  The cost will be 50 cents for 3 minutes, 75 cents for 4 1/2 minutes, 6 minutes for $1 and 7 1/2 minutes for $1.25.

Over half the cost of the expansion projects will be offset by $428,000 in federal funds from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. The popularity of the recreation area led to the decision by the LLNRD Board of Directors to expand the camping facilities.
