Campground Overview

Lake Cunningham - also referred to as the "C", is a 390-acre lake surrounded by a 1,050-acre park located in north-central Omaha, Nebraska. The lake was constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for flood control and recreation and opened to the public in 1977. For more information on additional recreational amenities, please visit our website.

In 2021 the park reopened after being closed for renovations and the draining of zebra mussels. The completed improvements to the park include a six-mile concrete multipurpose trail that loops around the lake and crosses over two new pedestrian bridges. The new loop trail is a never-before-seen experience that attracts both walkers and bikers, giving them the opportunity to enjoy nature and wildlife.

Lake Cunningham features the West C Campground which has 41 concrete RV sites with electrical of 20, 30, and 50-amplifications. The West C Campground also has an upgraded bathhouse facility. The East C Campground features 42 concrete campground stalls complete with water, electrical of 20, 30, and 50 amps, and sanitary at each pad as well as a new bathhouse facility. There are 7 primitive camping spots. All new grills and firepits will accompany all the campground stalls. All RV sites have access to a freshwater fill station and a dump station when you enter the campground entrance. For more information on the amenities of each campground, please visit our website. 

Come experience an unforgettable outdoor adventure at the C!
