Lakeside camping in Nebraska guide


Nebraska might be better known for its Great Plains and Sandhills than its lakes, but the Cornhusker State is still home to more than two dozen lakes. Lake McConaughy is the headline act, where you can take your pick of lakeside campgrounds at the Lake McConaughy State Recreation Area and enjoy swimming, fishing, and water sports along the white-sand beaches. Or, head to nearby Swanson Lake, where you can park your RV by the beachside or pitch a tent right on the sand. Urban campers can find lakeside getaways within a short drive of Nebraska’s largest cities. Branched Oak State Recreation Area, just north of Lincoln, has ample tent and RV sites with 30-amp and 50-amp electric hookups, while Fremont Lakes State Recreation Area is less than an hour from Omaha, and Two Rivers State Recreation Area has a choice of seven campgrounds and restored cabooses.
