Road damage prompts temporary closure of Hudson Lake

LINCOLN, Neb. – Hudson Lake in Cherry County is temporarily closed because of deteriorating road conditions.

Warmer temperatures in recent days have prompted melting snow with runoff causing damage to the access road.

Hudson Lake, which is about 24 miles southwest of Valentine, is available for public recreation through the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s Open Fields and Waters Program. Conditions will be assessed on a weekly basis to determine the lake’s reopening.
