Campground Description

Nebraska's largest reservoir at 35,700 acres, Lake McConaughy now has a spectacular Visitor/Water Interpretive Center, 1/2 mile south of Kingsley Dam on Nebr. 62. The center houses park offices, aquariums and theater, with interactive displays that interpret the benefits of the Platte River and the High Plains Aquifer. Big Mac teams with Lake Ogallala, at 320 acres, to provide some of the finest water sports recreation anywhere in the state. Lake McConaughy SRA covers 5,492 land acres on 12 areas, while Lake Ogallala SRA adds another 339 land acres. Located 9 miles north of Ogallala, they offer excellent fishing, boating, camping and hunting. The area offers camping, several boat ramps, modern restrooms, coin-op showers, dump stations, camp pads with electricity, water, vault toilets, picnic tables, shelters, unsupervised swimming beach, fish cleaning stations and concessions with rental boats. Cedar Vue Campground features all-weather camping pads, a trailer dump station, shower-restroom building, sandy beach, low-water boat ramp, and blacktop roads. Cedar Vue is about 15 miles from the dam on Nebr. 92. Spring Park at public access road No. 9 offers some good camping. It's a small, quality aread with a mature stand of cottonwoods. Otter Creek is better known as fishermen's headquarters. It has primitive facilities, plenty of shade, and a protected bay for boat mooring near campsites. Martin Bay Campground is probably the most popular area at Lake McConaughy. Martin Bay appeals especially to anglers, pleasure boaters, water skiers, and sailing enthusiasts. Typical of Big Mac's north shore, the bay is ringed with clean, fine sand, making for a fine swimming beach. behind the ring of sand, clusters of trees offer welcome refuge from the hot summer sun and variety from the sand-water landscape. The area has a boat ramp that's usable during part of the low-water season.
