Lower Big Blue NRD Opening for Camping


BEATRICE, Nebraska – The Lower Big Blue Natural Resources District (NRD) will open its recreation areas for camping May 20, 2020. The gates to camping areas at Big Indian and Willard Meyer Recreation Areas will be closed at 5 p.m. May 19, 2020, and open to campers on a first-come, first-serve basis at 10 a.m. on May 20, 2020.

Prior to opening, NRD staff will clean, sanitize and stock all restrooms. Additional cleaning will continue on a weekly basis. Daily sanitation will NOT be done. If you use the restroom facilities, please take appropriate precautions.

Visitors are asked to practice social distancing. Playground equipment, picnic areas and beaches are NOT sanitized. Any use of these high-traffic areas is discouraged but may be used at your own risk.

Please note that these areas are currently open on a provisional basis. Any evidence of large gatherings of people, disagreements between patrons, or abuse of district facilities will be cause for immediate closure at the discretion of NRD staff. Facilities may also close without notice if further concerns about the spread of COVID-19 arise. 

We encourage you to be smart, safe and social from a distance during this time. Thank you for your patience, understanding and patronage! Please visit the district website, for updates.
