Description

Need a new place to take your furry friend? Well, Memphis State Recreational Area is just calling their name. Sprawling across 163 acres, it’s not the largest of state parks. But with the serene lake and groves of trees, it’s a pawfect spot to spend some quality time with your pooch.

Memphis Lake is the most pupular feature of the park. If you have an adventurous pup, bring a boat along and take them out on the water. Please note that this is a wakeless lake, so you and your doggo can’t zoom around at high speeds. This is also a puptacular fishing spot. And since the lake is stocked with largemouth bass, bluegill, and channel catfish, there’s a good chance you won’t go home empty handed.

After boating or fishing, your pup will be eager to get out and explore the park. Take them for a walk on the one mile nature trail. Not only will they get to check out all the new smells, they’ll get some much needed exercise in a beautiful setting. Don’t forget to bring clean up bags and pick up whatever your pooch puts down. And, even though it’s just a mile, bring plenty of water to keep your pup hydrated.

If your pooch wants to stay the night, grab one of the sites in the campground.  There are plenty to choose from and many have puptacular lakeside views. Two day use areas are available for those just spending the afternoon in the park. Tables, grills, and a couple shelters make this an ideal place for a summer barbecue.

Visitors need a Nebraska State Park Permit. A daily pass for Nebraska residents costs $6.00 and a yearly permit is $30.00. For non-residents, the charge for an annual permit is $45.00 and $8.00 for a daily pass. Consider purchasing the annual pass, because your pup’s going to want to visit this park again and again!
