Wildlife and Recreation Areas in Southeast Impacted by High Water

LINCOLN – Wildlife management areas and state recreation areas in Lancaster, Saline, Fillmore, Thayer, Gage and Jefferson counties of southeast Nebraska are being impacted by high water levels because of recent heavy rainfall.

Area users should be cautioned that access to area roads, campgrounds, toilets and other facilities may be limited. Area users should not walk or drive vehicles through standing water, as hazards hidden by turbid water may be present.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission may decide to close all or parts of areas if conditions warrant. Users should obey signs posted on areas.
