Members Have the Most Fun! Reserve Your RV Lot Now

Image
Everyone is welcome to join us at the Lodge at The Cottonwood Cove for food, drinks, time in the pool, and incredible live music. When you become a member of our Cottonwood family by reserving an RV lot at our premiere RV Park on the Missouri River, you get opportunities for additional fun too. We camp through October around here, which means there is still plenty of quality time left to take advantage of having your own RV lot here with us.  



Member-Only Events
It's fun to know your neighbors, and we encourage everyone staying at The Cottonwood Cove to get together often. One way that we do this is through special member-only events throughout the year. In July we hosted a Members' Breakfast at the Lodge before we opened for regular business hours and just before we went to our full-time summer hours for the season.



Last Saturday our Golf Cart Poker Run took place, and next Saturday we're gearing up for a great big BBQ Contest. We hear a lot of our members have been working …

5 Benefits of Living the RV Life

Image
If you have never had the chance to spend some time traveling in an RV, you don't realize what an amazing experience you are missing out on! The many wonderful members at our RV Resort & Marina in the Midwest will be quick to back that statement up. There is a multitude of reasons why the RV Life is a great life. Today The Cottonwood Cove has listed a few of our favorite ones. 



#1 - Inexpensive Million-Dollar Views
When you decide to make an RV your part-time or even full-time home, you have the freedom to change the scenery outside your window anytime that you get the urge. Depending on where you park, you could have a million dollar view waiting for you when you wake up without the giant price tag of the million dollar home you would normally need to buy for a similar view. Once you've had your fill of that breathtaking view, you can pack up and move on to the next one!   

#2 - Follow the Weather
When you are tied to a house, you have to deal with whatever weather the season…

We've Got the Perfect Way For You to Celebrate National Watermelon Day...

Image
National Watermelon Day is coming up next week on Friday, August 3, 2018. Why should we care about that here at The Cottonwood Cove? Well, as you should already know, our RV resort & marina on the Missouri River happens to be the Home of the Watermelon!



Granted, it's not the food item that most people are familiar with that we are known for, but rather our signature cocktail that guests at The Cottonwood Cove can't seem to get enough of. In honor of National Watermelon Day, we've gathered a few fun facts about watermelons followed by a few more fun facts about the Watermelon cocktail served at our vacation destination in the Midwest.   

Watermelon Fun Facts



- IT'S NOT A FRUIT!!! We don't know about you guys, but we had absolutely no idea that a watermelon is actually classified as a vegetable! It is a member of the same family as cucumbers, pumpkins, and squash.

- China grows more watermelons than any other country. The fruit, oops, we mean vegetable (that'll …

It's Pool Time at The Cottonwood Cove! (Finally!!!)

Image
The wait is finally over... the brand new pool and swim-up bar at The Cottonwood Cove are now open! Quite a few guests at our Midwest RV Resort & Marina have given it a try, and absolutely everyone loves it! It looks like the rest of the season is going to be even more fun than we're used to. 



The Pool
The weather forced us to push back opening day for the best 21+ pool in the Midwest, but we plugged through and the result is a beautiful and fantastic spot to keep cool all summer long! If you thought hanging out on the patio outside The Cottonwood Cove Lodge was fun before, we've now made it even more exciting. 

Pool hours will be every Tuesday-Thursday from 3-9 pm and Friday-Sunday from 11 am-9 pm. Make sure that you've got a swimsuit with you when you head our way because this new pool is simply irresistible.




The Swim-Up Bar
Our awesome pool is connected to what is now only the 2nd swim-up bar in all of Nebraska! We don't want you to have to get out of the water to ge…

There's ALWAYS Something Fun Going On At The Cottonwood Cove!

The Cottonwood Cove is a LOT more than an RV park and marina. We consider our members and the wonderful people that frequent our Lodge to be family, which is a big reason we schedule lots of fun events for everyone to get together and enjoy. If you're looking for something fun to do and some awesome people to experience it with, then you really need to check out our list of annual events in the Midwest



To give you an idea of the great times that are waiting for you when you join us at The Cottonwood Cove, here is a look at a few recent events that we hosted. Some of our events take us on a "field trip" off-property, some are members-only so that neighbors can get to know each other a little better, and many are fun for all welcoming everyone in the Blair area.  

The Cottonwood Cove Classic
We hosted our 2nd annual golf tournament on Friday, June 22, 2018, and it was another huge success. Everyone was so excited about it, the event filled up pretty quickly. Maybe we'll…
