About Fort Knox

Fort Knox Campground is owned and operated by Tom and Jessica Messenger, of Kearney, NE. They have two children Kiptyn and Knox that love the outdoors, boating, swimming, and fishing! Tom grew up in Burwell, and we love coming back to visit our family with an amazing community! Burwell is such a welcoming community with the best people and the best lake in Nebraska with a lot of things to do to keep you busy. Life is busy and sometimes everybody needs to just get away and enjoy nature! There has been a need for more camping sites by the Calamus, and we will be an amazing place to come, kickback, relax, have fun, and enjoy family and friend time! The future for Fort Knox is going to be an on going project for a few years including horse shoes pits, donkeys balls, polish horseshoes, a playground.

Come experience Fort Knox Campground - make a weekend at the Calamus lake in Burwell, NE part of your adventure!
