You’ll Never Forget An Overnight In This Retired Caboose In Nebraska

Camping usually means either pounding some tent stakes into the ground or setting up your camper at just the right site. But a campground in Waterloo (in Douglas County) gives you a much more exciting option: you can sleep inside a real Union Pacific caboose.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

The above video details the other amenities you can find at Two Rivers. The cabooses are available for rent from April 15th through the end of September every year. You won’t find a weekend open for the rest of the 2016 season, but there are plenty of weekday stays still available – and you can book one up to a year in advance for next year’s stay. Rates are $75/night or $525/week, and you’ll also need a Nebraska parks pass to get into the recreation area.
