The daily fee for park access is $8 for out of state residents or $45 for an annual pass. This is not waived for anyone. You will need to decide whether a daily fee or an annual pass would be best for you.

If you are staying off site and coming in with dogs, the park fees would be $8 per day or $45 for an annual pass, which ever you choose.

The $45 annual pass will be good for any state park in Nebraska for a year

The lodge rooms are equivalent to a regular hotel room and do not allow dogs, so specialty attendees without dogs are encouraged to book at the lodge. There is one rate for loft rooms and one rate for ground rooms for everyone. The park does not offer special rates for groups.

The cabins can accommodate groups with dogs. They are of varying sizes with two or more bedrooms. They all have kitchens, so you may prepare your own meals, if desired.

For those in cabins with dogs, there is a ONE TIME $15 fee for the dogs. That’s it for the whole stay. So if you are in a cabin and have dogs, the most park fees would be is $60 for the entire show. This may be cheaper than nightly hotel pet fees for the entire show.

There are several hotels in the area, but they will not negotiate any group discounts this far ahead of the Specialty. Information will be posted as it becomes available.
