Campouts

Join us for a Wildlife Safari Park Campout and experience Nebraska like you never have before. During your stay, you'll learn about native Nebraska and North American animals, have a campfire and see the stars away from the city lights.  
 
We have two locations where your group can stay: our Base Camp Site and our NEW Darrald Harsh Wildlife Education Center. The Base Camp Site offers four 10x10 canvas tents and one 16x20 canvas tent. All on platforms with cots and a campfire pit near the wolf exhibit and away from the lights of the parking lot. Our new sleeping area is our Wildlife Education Center. It is near the lower parking lot and is perfect for young youth that would like to stay in a building instead of tents. The facility has electricity and water and can show a movie at night as well as have a campfire to roast marshmallows. Restrooms are across the parking lot but easily accessible.      
 
The cost is $40.00 per camper for either facility and includes admission to Wildlife Safari Park for the following day, and an educational and conservation experience. A minimum of 15 campers is required for private Large Group Campouts or see our Family/Small Group Campouts for smaller numbers of participants.

*New in 2021 - Night Watch
