This was our second year taking a multi-generational camping trip. Last year we all escaped to Eureka Springs, Arkansas (one of my personal favorite places in the US). This year we stayed a bit closer to our central Iowa home with a long weekend trip to Omaha.
Camping near Omaha, Nebraska was a great choice for everyone in the family. We were able to spend our days enjoying the campground or taking fun outings into the city. And our evenings were spent relaxing by the campfire, enjoying movies on our custom (camper) big-screen.

I am incredibly lucky to be close to my siblings, as well as my parents. It’s a blessing that not everyone has, and I love the time we can all spend together.
As a family we try to plan one big getaway each year that everyone can attend. And, to keep it affordable, we go camping.
This year our outing was to the KOA in Gretna, Nebraska, just west of Omaha. I almost feel like the poster child for KOA here on The Scenic Route… What can I say, these campgrounds just work for us – especially when traveling with family members who don’t camp. We know that the camping cabins, pool, and other activities will help our non-RVing relatives enjoy the getaway and not feel like they are ‘roughing it.’ Another great bonus of camping is that our dogs are welcome to join us, making this truly a vacation for the entire family.
