Recreation Updates

All Nemaha NRD parks are open, and all services including camping are available. This includes Kirkman's Cove, Iron Horse Trail Lake, Duck Creek Recreation Area, Wirth Brothers Lake, and Prairie Owl. Currently the areas will remain open; you are asked to practice good social distancing while at the parks until further notice. Check out our Recreation page for the latest updates and response to the current pandemic.

The Steamboat Trace trail, however, is still closed in its entirety until further notice. It is not expected that the trail will be reopened this year. Major flooding from last spring caused extensive damage to sections of the trail, and it is unknown at this time when those portions may be repaired.
