In the Wild with Greg Wagner


THINK SPRING, SUMMER AND STATE PARK CABINS! by Nebraska Game and Parks Commission

I don’t know about you, but I am sure thinking warmer thoughts on these cold late-winter days here in the Cornhusker State. I am specifically thinking about booking a few weeknights for overnight lodging in the spring or summer with the Wagner family in one of our fine Nebraska state park cabins. And yes, you should do the same! The Wagner’s are taking a close look at renting a cabin at Lewis and Clark Lake.

We sure have a lot to offer when it comes to lodging in our state parks and recreation areas. In all, nine different Nebraska parklands offer 186 cabins for overnight lodging, plus there are also 40 lodge rooms at Mahoney State Park and 22 at Fort Robinson that can be rented. Space is filling fast with all of these lodging facilities, I might add. Quite a few weeknights are still available. Don’t wait too long to reserve nights. In my view, the weeknights are the best times to stay in a park or recreation area for obvious reasons!

Never been to some of these parks or recreation areas, you say? Like to take an extended look at them? A great feature on our website are the video vacations done by my good friend Ralph Wall of the Game and Parks Commission. Here’s a link to check those out: http://www.ngpc.state.ne.us/parks/guides/parksearch/videos.asp

See you out there, sipping some iced tea and wetting a fishing line with my family on the Nebraska shore of Lewis and Clark Lake … Pass me some more  nightcrawlers, will ya’!
