We stayed at the Cabela's in Nebraska and had full hook-up in a great campground on site completely landscaped and quite a nice stop from the highway. We self registered and had the choice of the drop box or registering inside the store. Besides the fantastic wildlife and fish display the deli offered sandwiches of smoked elk, wild boar, smoked buffalo and bison or venison bratwurst besides regular items. It is well worth a stop whether to shop, browse or camp. You can overnight for free in the lot section.

Carol which Cabela's in Nebraska did you stay at? I've been to the one in Sidney Nebraska (I'm a native Nebraskan!) and was amazed at what they offered.

Its nice to know they offer camping, someday Susan and I just might have to camp at a Cabela's. I'd enjoy that a lot more than the Walmarts we usually stop at

Cabela's is truly an impressive company.

I'm going to be in trouble

A new Cabela's store is going to be built about 3 miles from my house. It is in between my place and where my Airstream is parked. I will have to drive right by it to get to my Airstream. I'm in deep, deep trouble.

I thought that was the case. I seem to remember it was the original Cabela's store. I think you'll enjoy the heck out of it once you get there!

That's the one Brad. My you have a windy state! I could barely push myself against the wind and when I remarked about it to a local clerk in the station he said, "This is nothing, there are days when the wind will blow your head right off." Made me chuckle and I will always remember the matter of fact way he delivered that information. We were just passing by and needed gas when I saw the Cabela's and were pleasantly surprised to find the campground. We decided to stay the night and take the tour the next morning.

Paula, me too, me too!

Michelle you won't be disappointed, this, the arch and Iowa 80 truck stop were my favorite stops along the road.

Here are shots of the full service campground.

These were taken on the morning's tour. The place is HUGE! You could spend so much time there, a regular wonderland.

Carol,
We will be stopping at all those places. I will have friend with me travelling east. They don't travel much and are a big fan of Cabelas. The Iowa 80 truck stop will be on the list as well.

I live midway between two Cabelas in Minnesota; the one in Rogers is bigger than the one in Owatonna. Try it sometime.

A truly gigantic store is the one in Ft. Worth TX, over 225,000 sq ft!

But the largest (I think) is the one in Hamburg PA, a cool 1/4 million square feet.

That's just a good post. Brutal honesty. You probably could care less if they have a campground but that Mini, LOL...We have one 3 miles from us and the joke is over. This is getting serious and I might just need my own darn store since half of it's on lay-away anyway.

Yep, been to the Sidney Nebraska store...pretty amazing!

I'm not a hunter by any means, but the store is so much more than just 'a hunter's store'! We had a stopover night there a couple of years ago on a DenCO Unit Caravan. The campsite was very nice by any standards, but also convenient to the store. If you were "just looking" in the evening, you could go back for those "I'll think about it" purchases in the morning! Which I did...I had the dubious honor of spending the most money at the stop and Mr. InsideOut wasn't even with me! I did buy him a shirt....

I'm with you Kip...the new store is between home & work, better watch it once it opens! We also have a Bass Pro less than 20 miles away...very cool too, hard to pick between the two for me. It'll be interesting to see the competion in action...

Shari
