Tailgate at State Parks on WOWT 6 Outdoors!

With the football season just underway around Nebraska (high school and college), on my WOWT 6 Outdoors segment I’ll be encouraging you to have or buy a park permit, leave a little early for your game and tailgate in one of our many scenic Nebraska state park lands with the fine facilities that we have. Chances are you’ll have a state park land near your football field or stadium!


For those traveling from Omaha to Lincoln via Highway 6 for the Husker game Saturday evening, I’ll be telling you to leave a bit early Saturday afternoon, take a break from the traffic and stop at this quiet, quaint state recreation area to grill out. Recognize it? (Photos are courtesy of the concession on the area).


Here’s the concession.


Big Red Fans, you can click this link to get info about it, or find out where we’re going by watching my WOWT 6 Weekly TV Outdoor Report. It that airs LIVE on the Omaha station Thursday evening during the 6 p.m. CST sportscast with either Ross Jernstrom or Jeff Packer

If you’re unable to view the live broadcast of the weekly outdoor report, video replays of it can be seen after the initial cast here. The report can also be accessed on Digital Channel 6.2 and Cox Cable Channel 120. Additionally, WOWT 6 runs the outdoor report on Saturdays later in its hour-long 8 a.m. CST newscast.


Now, what would a September Husker tailgate picnic be like without grilling some fresh Nebraska sweet corn, right?

Oh, and “GOOOO BIG RED!”

Thanks for watching!
