LINCOLN, Neb. — Lone Eagle Campground at Lake McConaughy State Recreation area will be closed to the public starting Sept. 19 for camping site upgrades.
The closure will allow construction crews to complete installation of a wastewater and drinking water system, which will bring RV dump and fill locations to each of the 84 sites.
In 2013, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission received a $740,000 appropriation from the Nebraska Legislature to upgrade all 84 camping sites at Lone Eagle to full service accommodations. An electrical system upgrade and accessibility upgrade was completed in 2014 with $100,000 in additional financial assistance from the Keith County Visitor’s Committee.
The campground is expected to reopen in spring 2018.
