Lovewell Lake, just four miles east and 10 miles north of Mankato in Kansas and only eight miles south of Superior in Nebraska provides a wide variety of recreational opportunities, with a surface area of 2,980 acres and 43 miles of shoreline.
Nestled in a deep valley, the lake is protected from high summer winds by steep tree-covered hills on the south.
Lovewell State Park is on the lake's north shore providing a full-service office with interpretive center. A marina, boat ramp, designated swimming area, camper hookups and picnic areas are available. Six native log cabins have recently been built that will accommodate up to 8 persons.
