My wife and I stayed here for over two weeks…the end of October through the beginning of November. They are in the process of upgrading the campground with over a dozen new concrete parking spots with attached concrete pads with picnic tables and iron fire pits. Right before we left they were installing a large playground area for kids. It also looks like they are completely redoing the large pond/small lake area to have a sandy beach area. They have been busy the whole time putting our new gravel on the roads as well. The new pads have water and 50/30/20 amp power poles. No sewer. They have placed very nice portages-potties throughout the campground and they are cleaned regularly. The cost varies by how long you stay, but daily, weekly, or monthly costs are still in the 3 dollar a day range. This is one of the sweetest deals! Ashley is the one who manages the campground and everything is mostly done by phone call and credit card. Very nice and helpful staff. The campground is within 100 feet of the platte river, which a wide (and not very deep) river that joins the Missouri river just south of Omaha. Great quiet place to camp and enjoy the area. Worth a stop anytime you are passing through!

Camp Ashland has started charging $3/night. The reason they have started charging is they have added 30/50 amp service to most sights. Fishing on the pond will resume in 2019. The pond was restocked with bluegill and they are allowing the fish to grow prior to fishing. Water is available to fill your fresh water tank but you will have to go somewhere else to dump grey/black water. Porta Johns and dumpsters are kept clean.

We stayed overnight. We had called to check availability several weeks ahead of our scheduled arrival and the Sgt at billeting gave us a reservation. There was no charge for our pad which had an electrical hookup but no water hookup. The pad next to us had both and we probably could have run a hose to a second faucet at that site if we had wanted to and had a long enough hose. We did not have a fire ring or grill stand at our site although there was a large wheel that probably served as a fire ring. The literature we got on arrival included a statement that reservations are required. No one asked if we had firearms. The civilian gate guard was friendly and courteous and was the only person from the base we met. We like out of the way places with few people so for us it was a wonderful campground. We thoroughly enjoyed our night on the lake and will try to stop again any time we need a campground in this area.

Well worth the stop, especially at $0 per night. It takes a little coordination, and if you're a drop-in after normal duty hours or the weekend, you won't get a spot with power until the next duty day. We stayed there for one Friday night the weekend before the 4th of July and all the neighboring campgrounds, including Offut AFB FamCamp, were full. We took a chance at Ashland to see what was there and were the only campers there. We enjoyed it immensely even without electric service. According to the gate guard (very friendly and helpful), billeting runs the campground and they had left for the day. Great view, quiet, with a flock of visiting geese. Really nothing provided at the campground to do but that was fine with us. No facilities on the installation (BX/PX, Commissary, etc). The entire base is well groomed and taken care of. The scrap pile in the photo section is gone. The lake was experiencing an algae bloom at the time and was closed to swimming.
