It's Time For Another Cottonwood Reunion! Saturday, June 15, 2019!

Image
The Cottonwood Cove you know and love today has been around in some form since the 1960s. That has left us with a HUGE name to live up to because over the years many amazing memories have been created at our RV campground & marina on the Missouri River



Quite a few things have changed since that original opening day but the vision of a great place for everyone who loves the outdoors, the river, boating, biking, and now camping has always remained the same. We are once again ready to celebrate all that we've been, that we are now, and that we will become at another great big exciting Cottonwood Reunion on Saturday, June 15, 2019

Yes, we may have water on the lower campground right now but the restaurant, bars, and pool area are unaffected and ready for a celebration! This is how we're going to do it. 

Live Music
The best live music in Nebraska happened on the riverfront stage at last year's reunion so we've invited a couple of those incredible bands back to do it all…

Pool Time Begins (weather permitting) Memorial Day Weekend

Image
It's that exciting time of year at The Cottonwood Cove when we get to suit up and dive into the best pool & swim-up bar in Nebraska! (As long as Mother Nature lets up on the rainy weather, that is.) Weather permitting, Memorial Day Weekend at our RV campground & marina on the Missouri River is not only an awesome holiday to enjoy great food & drinks, fun friends, and incredible live music, but also some much-anticipated pool time! 



Everyone immediately fell in love with the 21+ pool and swim-up bar that we opened in July last season. (It is 1 of only 2 in the entire state of Nebraska!) Once you're in the water, you really have no need to get back out all day long. (Unless of course, you need to go to the bathroom!) 



Simply swim up to the bar, place your drink order, then glide ride on over to one of the tables surrounded by underwater bar stools to enjoy it. An added bonus is that the same bar is also accessible by land on the other side. This lower patio area is per…

Memorial Day Weekend will soon be here! (May 24-27, 2019) The very best place to spend the holiday is right here with us at our riverfront RV campground & marina in Nebraska. There are tons of incredible things to do around The Cottonwood Cove. Here are 5 of them to get you excited about getting over here and discovering even more!   



#1 - Cook Out
Having your very own RV lot reserved at The Cottonwood Cove means that you're always close to all of the action. Right now we still have a few left in our newest addition, so it's not too late to become a member of our big, happy family!

Improvements can be made to your campsite which allows you to customize it in any way that you like. You can set up a grill, a fire pit, and maybe even an entire outdoor dining area. 

Directional parking provides a consistent layout and campers can be backed into place so that neighbors' awnings face each other. This means that you can create a larger shared camping space with other family membe…

Memorial Day Weekend Music
There's always outdoor fun to be had at our vacation destination in the Midwest, such as boating, swimming, grilling, fishing, and more. Thanks to our great big outdoor stage sitting alongside the Missouri River, we've turned live music into an outdoor activity too. 

Every weekend we have amazing bands lined up to keep you entertained but as usual, for Memorial Day Weekend, we've outdone ourselves! Even though the Lodge is usually closed on Mondays, we'll be open on Memorial Day Monday with an extra helping of incredible music.
