Give Your RV Interior a Fresh New Look (Without Breaking the Bank!)

Image
Even though there are lots of fun things to do outside of your RV at our RV campground & marina on the Missouri River, you most likely still spend a lot of time inside the vehicle. Occasionally updating the look of the RV's interior can be a nice change. 

A complete overhaul can get pricy fast, but there are simple improvements that can be made that don't have to cost a lot. The small changes The Cottonwood Cove has for you today can make a big difference! 




Decorative Accents
You may shy away from putting decor on your walls because of the hazard of those things falling down during travel. There are ways to get around that. Removable and reusable sticker decals are an excellent way to do this. Today you can find them in many different styles, from inspirational sayings to pieces of art. There are some wonderful maps made this way too that could be fun if you're traveling the country. 

It's also possible to find lightweight wall decor that is less likely to fall victim …

The family-friendly atmosphere at our riverfront RV campground & marina in the Midwest is the perfect place to enjoy some quality family fun. Here are a few things that campers of all ages can enjoy around here. 



Outdoor Fun
Our vacation destination in the Midwest is located in an excellent spot to enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities. At your campsite, there will be lots of nights enjoying cookouts and stories over the campfire. Also, just last fall we added a fantastic playground for the kids to enjoy.

You'll have access to our 40' wide soft-slope boat ramp that leads to a 12-acre deepwater marina. All of our docks, slips, and ramps are even wheelchair accessible.   

Even amidst all of that outdoor fun, someti…

National Watermelon Day is Coming - Raise a Glass!

Image
August 3 is annually set aside on the calendar as National Watermelon Day. Here at The Cottonwood Cove, we "celebrate" watermelons all season long, but in our case, in liquid form! Our Nebraska bar & restaurant on the Missouri River happens to be the Home of the Watermelon, a refreshing cocktail that is a must-try for anyone age 21+. 



Guests at our vacation destination in the Midwest can't seem to get enough of this delicious drink. Of course, the actual melon itself is also a tasty treat to enjoy on a hot summer day. In honor of National Watermelon Day, here are a few fun facts about both the food and our signature cocktail. 

Watermelon Fun Facts

It is a member of the same family as cucumbers, pumpkins, and squash. Botanically though, it adheres to the meaning of a fruit, so the debate is on...

Keep Your RV Cool On Hot Summer Days

Image
One of the perks of RV living is that if you don't like the weather, you can drive someplace more pleasant. Hot, sticky, summer heat isn't always fun, but there are so many exciting things you can do this time of year at The Cottonwood Cove, the hot weather shouldn't force you to move along. 

You'll find plenty of fun things to do outside of the RV at our Midwest RV campground & marina on the Missouri River. For the times you plan to be inside the RV, here are a few tips you can use to help keep the cooled off and more comfortable. 



Keep It Shaded
Keep shades pulled down on the sunny side of the RV to offset sun exposure. Awnings keep the vehicle shaded and cooler too. The Cottonwood Cove features large lots with directional parking allowing you to place yourself facing the direction that lets in the least sun. You can also face awnings together with your neighbor to create a larger shaded area. Many RV door windows don't have shades, but covering these in some wa…
