LPSNRD LAKES, TRAILS & WETLANDS
All LPSNRD lakes, trails and wetlands are open for daytime use.  All eight of our public use lakes, including Wildwood Lake, are open to overnight camping.  Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, LPSNRD has removed all porta potties from public use areas, all vault toilets have been locked and all drinking fountains have been shut off.  These precautions will remain in effect until further notice to keep our staff and the public safe and healthy. 

WILDWOOD LAKE is owned by LPSNRD and managed as a wildlife management area by the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission.  Information about camping at these facilities, while observing COVID-19 health guidelines, is available at http://outdoornebraska.gov/healthinfo/.

Not related to COVID-19 is the closing of the second mile of our Oak Creek Trail, west of Valparaiso.
