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 60 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 gravel.

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 children they homeschool while managing the park.  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 - $1 wash / $1 dry
  • WIFI available throughout the park - our WIFI is great for checking email and surfing the internet however to ensure a consistent experience for all of our guests we throttle high bandwidth applications such as streaming video during peak hours.
  • Firewood, delivered to your site $3 bundle
  • Ice, delivered to your site $2.50 per 8lb bag

Recreation:

  • Free coffee during office hours
  • Swimming pool: Memorial Day - Labor Day
  • 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:

Do you offer early check in / late check out?

Early check in / late check out is available 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.  Early check in can be as early as 10am on day of arrival and check out can be as late as 5pm.

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.  This is why we include as many amenities as we can in our base rate.  Did you know that 1/3 of our arcade is set to free play and our laundry facilities are $1 wash and $1 dry?

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 along with our two employees (Bill and Cheryl) who also live in the 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.  

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 actively manage our bandwidth to ensure that everyone is able to enjoy our WIFI.  Our WIFI is optimized for web browsing and email.  If you are trying to stream audio, video, P2P, or other bandwidth intensive applications you may find your device throttled during peak hours.  This is to ensure that everyone has access to the internet.

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.

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.
