Drinking water access restored to Memphis State Recreation Area

LINCOLN, Neb. – Drinking water access has been restored at Memphis State Recreation Area in Saunders County.

The area had been without drinking water since 2018 because of groundwater conditions, and guests were asked to bring their own water. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission worked with the Village of Memphis to restore drinking water to the 163-acre area.

The area offers primitive camping, fishing, hiking and non-powered boating. A valid Nebraska park entry permit is required for each vehicle entering the park.
