Spring’s arrival brings fresh opportunities to enjoy Mahoney State Park beginning March 1

LINCOLN, Neb. – As spring arrives, celebrate by enjoying fresh opportunities for seasonal fun at Eugene T. Mahoney State Park (SP).

For a more laid-back experience, bring the family to Peter Kiewit Lodge, which offers 40 guest rooms and a great view of the Platte River. Stop by to observe the spring migration, see wildlife feeding near the building and to enjoy an excellent meal at the park’s restaurant, Caddy’s Parkside Grill.

In celebration of spring’s return, the park entry permit requirement will be temporarily waived in March and April for visitors coming to dine at Caddy’s Parkside Grill. Parking spaces are reserved next to Peter Kiewit Lodge for these visitors. Access to all other areas of the park will require a park permit, which can be obtained at the Peter Kiewit Lodge front desk.

Spring events, such as the Platte River Art Show and the Sip Nebraska Wine, Craft Beer & Spirits Festival, invite guests to make memories together and discover a new side to the park. Opening April 11, the Go Ape treetops rope course provides an unforgettable adventure through the park canopy.

For more information about activities at Mahoney SP, visit Outdoornebaska.org. A park entry permit is required for each vehicle entering the park.
