  • Nice place to spend the weekend. Cool little trout pond and walking trails. Warning: Take a phone or flashlight if hiking later in the day and you are unfamiliar with the paths! Lots of activities, unfortunately they were all closed the 2 days were spent here. Very comfortable cabin.
  • Possibly my favorite Nebraska state park, this place is beautiful! There's something for everyone here, excellent birdwatching and excellent facilities! The hikes are scenic, with lower trails thick in vegetation and higher trails open and above the plains. Everywhere is photogenic and wild, and the pool looks like a good way to wind down the day.
