20 Sites

Penbrook Campground is located along the beautiful Niobrara River just east of Valentine. Owned and operated by the Mercure brothers. If you are looking for some prime river-front camping look no further.

It is approximately 25 miles east of Valentine in the river corridor.

Primitive style camping with a secluded feel. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. There is a water hydrant with a hose located between RV sites 1 & 2 so there is access to fresh water. Restrooms are port-a-pot style facilities situated throughout the campground.

RV sites have access to the water hose to fill tanks otherwise the hose is to remain free so others can access the water supply.

There are no dump stations along the river corridor. The nearest dump station is in Valentine north of the hospital by the ball fields.

If you are booking over the phone please be sure to read the terms and conditions and cancellation policies. By booking by phone you acknowledge and agree to these terms/conditions and policies.

Season: Memorial Day – Labor Day with manned office hours. 9:00am to 4:30pm.

We are a seasonally staffed operation. Reservations are accepted outside of these dates for tent camping or RV/Trailers requiring electricity. Keep in mind however that water is only available through October 15th. Roads are not maintained during winter months so please do not book unless you speak to someone who can give you accurate information so that you don’t get stranded. Most places do not have cellular service in the river corridor so don’t rely on these devices to get you out of a situation you are not prepared for.

 Some calls may go unanswered due to the line already being in use. If you get voicemail then please leave us a message because we are either on the other line or out on site. 

If you book in the off-season then be aware that someone may not contact you for several days if at all. If you have questions during the off-season please direct them to 402-376-2503.
