Victoria Springs gets spruced up in time for centennial celebration

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. — Visitors to Victoria Springs, Nebraska’s first state recreation area, will enjoy upgrades at this oasis in the Sandhills just in time for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission parks system centennial celebration.

Recent improvements mean campers will have 50-amp electrical service at 21 new camping sites. Additional basic camping sites are available on the south end of the campground. Later this spring, two new concrete latrines also will be installed to enhance the shower house and restroom.

The two, two-bedroom rental cabins will undergo renovations as well this spring to make them accessible, increase living space and create new decks with views of the lake.

When complete, about $374,000 of Capitol Maintenance Funds will have been put into Victoria Springs for improvements. Victoria Springs is located 6 miles east of Anselmo and 9 miles north of Merna.

The park, which features mineral springs, historic buildings and plenty of outdoor opportunity, will be featured in a Game and Parks signature centennial event July 10 for its role in Nebraska parks’ history. Explore more at YourNebraskaParks100.org.
