Date of Stay:  Thursday September 1 – Monday September 5, 2016 (4 nights)

Rate:  $17/night (plus $25 year or $5 day car pass)

Website:  Conestoga Recreation Area State Park (NE)
   3900 NW 105th (HQ)… corner of W Pioneer Blvd and SW 98th Street (CG)
   Lincoln, NE 68524

Description:  Located just a bit west of Lincoln, NE.  Gravel road and sites in the rv section with electric only so fill up with fresh water before setting up.  All sites are first come first serve with self check-in.  Most are 30A like ours, site 46, but there are a couple with 50A.  No bath house but a couple of vault toilets,  About 58 sites here with half of them tents only.  Conestoga Lake has been drained and heavy equipment was bulldozing the cove as a lake rehabilitation project.

Trash and Recycle:  Dumpsters at various locations in the cg but no recycle.  Nearby small town of Denton has a county recycle site.

Activities:  Vel and Maggie mentioned that this cg may be quieter for the holiday weekend since the lake was drained so we joined them for a few days.  Gin was experiencing vertigo (MS flare up) so we relaxed and enjoyed spending time with our friends who showed us a bit of downtown Lincoln one day.  At 7:00 one morning, we experienced an earthquake that was centered in Oklahoma.  It felt like someone was pushing on the MH or someone was jumping inside.  The park was very full with extra cars at each site but it was relatively quiet.
