Welcome to the Double Nickel Campground! We're so glad you found us!

We are a family owned and operated campground in the heart of Nebraska.  We take pride in our campground and it shows. Whether you're looking for a restful night after a long travel day or a relaxing weekend with the family, we've got your covered! Come sit in one of our many porch swings. Let your pet run in the dog park. Take a dip in the pool or sit around the fire and enjoy one of our many beautiful Nebraska evenings.  

Our Campground:

Our entire campground is pull-thru, so there is no need to worry about backing up. Got a big rig? No problem. We've got plenty of spacious sites to accommodate you. We offer both full hookup and water / electric (50/30/20) sites.  We also have grassy tent sites located near the bath house. We, the owners, live in the middle of the campground and are available to assist with any issues 24X7. We want to make sure you have the best stay possible!

Just a few of the amenities we offer:

  • Swimming pool (Memorial Day to Labor Day)
  • Off-leash dog park
  • Clean restrooms with shower facilities
  • Mini Golf
  • Laundry facilities ($1.50 wash / $1 dry)

About Our Campground

Our mission at the Double Nickel Campground is to create an atmosphere that makes customers want to return to us again and again. We strive for an environment that is safe, beautiful, relaxing, clean, and fun for both travelers spending the night or families spending the weekend. 

About Our Sites:

When we purchased our park in 2014 there were 103 back-in sites.  We decided to redesign the park to have 45 pull-thru sites to ensure a more convenient experience for our customers. Our shortest site is 60 ft and the longest is 120 ft.  Despite the size of your rig, you will fit comfortably and enjoy your site.  

We have sites with and without trees and a handful overlooking the Sandy Meadows Golf Course.  All trees are seasonally trimmed to provide 16 feet of clearance within your site.  All sites and roads are hard packed limestone rock.

About the owners:

Jeff and Amanda Stoy purchased the Double Nickel in February of 2014.  Prior to purchasing, Jeff was an operations manager for Turner Broadcasting, and Amanda was an elementary school teacher.  They have two sons.  Jeff and Amanda live and work on site 24X7 to help ensure a safe and welcoming customer service experience.  

Our amenities include:

  • Very Clean Restroom with shower facilities 
  • Laundry facilities
  • Fast WIFI available throughout the park
  • Firewood, delivered to your site $5 bundle
  • Ice, delivered to your site $3 per 8lb bag

Recreation:

  • Free coffee during office hours
  • Swimming pool: Memorial Day - Labor Day (possibly later into the season if it stays warm)
  • Off leash Dog Park - So your pet can enjoy the park too!
  • 18 Hole Mini Golf - All you care to play at no additional cost!
  • Arcade - a few on free play, the rest only $0.50.
  • Outdoor movies on Saturday nights - relax and enjoy a movie on the big screen under the stars
  • Playground - Plenty of equipment to wear out the kids!
  • Porch swings - located on all premium sites, and around the park. 39 in all!
  • Adjacent to Sandy Meadows 9 hole golf course
  • Recreation Hall - climate controlled and available to rent for groups

For your safety:

  • Owners and employees live on site and actively patrol the park
  • Underground storm shelter
  • Double Nickel utilizes the latest in surveillance technology to actively manage and monitor our public spaces.

FAQ:

How good is your WIFI?

We have made multiple upgrades to our wireless and all rigs should have good signal strength in the park.  Additionally, we utilize three service providers for redundancy and actively manage our bandwidth to ensure that everyone is able to enjoy our WIFI.  Our WIFI is optimized for web browsing, email, and video streaming.  We reserve the right to throttle bandwidth intensive users during peak hours, this is to ensure that everyone has equal access to the internet.

Do you offer early check in / late check out?

Early check in / late check out is available on a limited number of sites every day except for Saturday depending on availability.  If the site is available early check in / late check out is available for an additional $5.  When available, late check out is no later than 4pm, customers wishing to stay past 4pm will need to pay for another night.  Please notify us when booking the site since we have a limited number of sites we can offer early/late check in on especially during the summer season.

Why is your occupancy based on four persons and why don't you charge extra for all your amenities?

As park owners and RVers ourselves we understand the frustration of showing up at an RV park only to see the rate double when we tell them there are four of us and we have pets.  We believe in charging a transparent and fair rate to our customers, especially those on a budget.  We only charge $2 per additional guest over the age of 5 and we do not charge for pets. We also include as many amenities as we can in our base rate.

I am not sure whether I will be able to make it to your park before dark, so will there be someone there to assist me with check in?

The park owners live on site in the middle of the park and are happy to assist customers at all hours. Simply call the main number.  We answer the phone during office hours but respond to messages at all hours.  In the event that there is no answer leave a message and we will get back with you immediately. You can also send us a text!

Do the owners really live on site?

Yes we do! In fact we live in the center of the campground and utilize the same facilities as our customers.  We actively manage and monitor our park.  You can rest assured that if there are any issues in the park we are readily available and happy to assist!

Why do you only do curbside trash pickup and why do you no longer have a large dumpster?

First and foremost curbside pickup is an important convenience we wanted to offer our customers.  Additionally, being in the outdoor recreation industry we take our relationship with the environment seriously.  Unfortunately due to our location recycling services were not available.  In an effort to keep our rates low and our environmental impact lower we haul trash and recyclables ourselves.  

Do you offer group discounts?

We offer the following groups of 8 or more units:

  • 10% discount off campsite
  • Free usage of the clubhouse for each day your group will be onsite
  • Use of a golf cart if you have anyone with mobility concerns
  • A reservation block of sites to ensure everyone in the group is in the same area 

Why are you no longer a Passport America park?

During the last economic crunch the previous owners had briefly joined Passport America.  This is why some customers with older books may find us listed.  When we purchased the park we evaluated the program and determined we could not profitably participate in their program.  As with other discount programs, we will give a 10% discount to PA members.

Why do you require a deposit for reservations?

In the outdoor industry we recognize that there are a number of factors that can lead to a change in plans, including, weather, mechanical, work, and family concerns.  When we take a reservation we evaluate the type of rig that will be coming in and assign a site based on the customer's request. If a customer cancels within the cancellation window we charge $5 to recover our processing fees and work to try to fill the site with another customer.  Unfortunately when we have less than 48 hours notice we have found that statistically we have trouble filling the site or end up having to leave other sites vacant to make everyone fit.

Do you have cable tv?

Unfortunately due to our location we are unable to offer cable TV but we do get good over the air reception (8-12 stations), and offer many sites that are satellite friendly.  Additionally in many circumstances our WIFI will support video streaming.

I just bought a new camper can you guide me through my first trip?

Absolutely!  Just call our office and let us know you are new to rving.  We will walk you through the registration and site selection process.  If you would like some help getting setup for the first time we can be there to answer any questions and assist as needed without drawing a crowd!


The Double Nickel Campground and Resort is conveniently located 1 block south off exit 360 on I-80 in Nebraska. 

We are only a few miles from the town of York and situated between Lincoln and Grand Island.
