GENERAL POLICIES
Berry Bridge & Penbrook Campground General Policies
(All times are Central Standard Time)

Season: Memorial Day – Labor Day with manned office hours. (office hours vary after August 30th. Plan accordingly.

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. Always leave a message. If you are not contacted within 48 hours then assume your message was not clear or it did not go through.
