As one of Nebraska's biggest cities, Omaha has its share of urban sprawl, but spend a little time in town and find museums, pleasant parks, plenty of places to tuck into for an Omaha steak and somewhat unexpectedly, an indoor rainforest.
Overnight camping in developed sites is on a first-come, first-served basis. Campfires are allowed unless restrictions are posted.
