Lake Ogallala Camping


category : Camping
Lake Ogallala's modern campground is a pay-for-use area, but has all the conveniences electricity, modern restrooms, hot showers and fire grates. Its 82 camper pads are nestled among mature cottonwoods in a serene lakeside setting.

On the west side, a more primitive atmosphere prevails at campsites without all the amenities. Serious anglers gather there at the two boat ramps. A wheelchair-accessible fishing dock is also available.

Part of the Lake McConaughy recreation complex, Lake Ogallala is nine miles north of Ogallala on Nebraska Highway 61. A park entry permit is required, and the modern campground requires a daily use fee. Park entry permits and information are available at the Game and Parks Commission office south of Kingsley Dam.
