NRD Recreation Areas

COVID-19 Update: Please contact the local NRD that manages the recreation area you're interested in to determine if they have closures and/or limitations due to COVID-19. Find that information using the map below.

Feeling the need to get away from it all? You’re in luck! Nebraska’s Natural Resources Districts (NRDs) offer numerous opportunities to enjoy and appreciate our natural world. Many of the NRDs build and operate public recreation areas available to all who wish to view wildlife, fish and hunt, take nature walks, use bike trails or participate in other outdoor activities. NRD recreation facilities are built and operated to meet multipurpose needs – combining recreation with flood control, wildlife habitat enhancement, soil erosion and sediment control, or wetland renovation along our rivers and streams to protect lives, property and the future. So, whether you are a visitor to Nebraska or a resident of our beautiful state, get out and enjoy one of the numerous NRD recreation areas.

Before heading out to an NRD park and recreation area, check out Nebraska's Department of Environment and Energy's weekly environmental alert to ensure there are no harmful algal blooms or bacteria concentrations in the water.
