Description

If your furry friend loves the outdoors, then treat them to a day at Pawnee State Recreation Area. This 2,500 acre slice of nature will delight their senses and provide them with a chance to commune with Mother Nature.

The 740 acre Pawnee Lake is at the center of this pawsome park. With so much water, it’s no wonder boating and fishing are some of the park’s most pupular activities. Bring your rod and reel and try your luck at catching some bass, walleye, catfish, or bluegill. All types of boats are welcome on the lake, and there are two docks and three launches available. If your pooch heads out on the water, make sure you have a doggy life jacket on hand.

If your pup prefers to stay on dry land, Pawnee Lake State Recreation Area boasts six miles of trails. Pack some snacks, plenty of water, and clean up bags and venture down one of the trails. Keep in mind the trails are multi-use, so expect to see some mountain bikers and equestrians. Help your pal yield as necessary.  

Want to stay a night or two? Settle in at the campground. Here you’ll find 200 campsites with water, showers, and bathrooms. Some are also equipped with electrical hookups. If you are just visiting for the day, pack a lunch or have a barbecue on one  of the grills in the day use area.

Please note all park visitors must have a Nebraska State Park Permit. Nebraska residents can purchase an annual permit for $30.00 or a day permit for $6.00. Non-residents can buy an annual permit for $45.00 or a day permit for $8.00. Go ahead and get the annual permit, your pup will thank you!

Your furry buddy will agree, a day at Pawnee State Recreation Area is time well spent!
