The best camping is Free camping
We had a pretty easy day today. Only 220 miles from Valentine to McCook, NE. We are in a city park with seven 50A sites and it is FREE camping for up to 3 days. Water and a dump station is available. I am impressed with our route down US 83. The road is 2 lane so far, but in good repair with decent width shoulders. Of course we had the requisite road work but only for about 20 miles. The first half of this day was through the Nebraska Sand Hills which were scenic in our eyes. Not much civilization, but beautiful nonetheless. Then it was 100 miles of corn country with drying feed corn as far as the eye could see. At least there was a little more man made stuff to see. We made a fuel and Walmart stop in North Platte. This is a fairly sizable town at the junction of US 83 and I80. The Walmart was right off US 83 and with lots of large vehicle parking and easy return to US 83. We fueled at Flying J 2 miles East on I 80 and then went back west to US 83.
