Olive Creek areas remains open after wildfire

Olive Creek State Recreation Area and Olive Creek Wildlife Management Area in southwestern Lancaster County will remain open after a wildfire burned through both areas Oct. 23.

Visitors should proceed with caution and be on the lookout for hazardous trees and potential hot spots in the burned areas. The boat ramp and campgrounds were not damaged in the fire.

Users should be mindful of boundaries, however, as border fences and signs have not yet been replaced. Download the state recreation area map at OutdoorNebraska.gov/OliveCreek.

Or find maps for both areas in the Nebraska Public Access Atlas, available in print at Game and Parks Commission offices and select retailers or online at OutdoorNebraska.gov/PublicAccessAtlas.
