The Lincoln County are has long been a favorite of outdoor enthusiasts. They
can hike, bike, fish, boat and hunt all while being surrounded by the scenic
river valley.


North Platte is the point where the North Platte River and South Platte River
join to create the Platte River. Bird watchers enjoy the quiet beauty of the
Platte River every winter when from mid-February to early April more than 100,000
sandhill cranes come to rest and prepare for their long flight to the Arctic
Circle. A crane viewing blind is available at the Buffalo Bill State Historical
Park Campgrounds.


The rivers are popular with hunters in the fall, where waterfowl are plentiful
and the chain of Platte River reservoirs provide homes for hundreds of thousands
of ducks and geese. Hunters also come in search for the wild turkey (our largest
game bird), pheasant, quail prairie grouse and, of course, deer.


The Lincoln County expanse of lakes and reservoirs provide excellent fishing
and the opportunity to catch walleye, white bass, catfish, and wiper.


The quiet, crystal blue waters of Lake Maloney, 5 miles south of North Platte,
offers many recreational opportunities, including beach activities, picnicking,
camping, fishing, boating, archery, golf and wildlife observation.


If you're not a hunter or fisherman, North Platte has an extensive trail system
for those interested in walking and biking. The trail takes you from Lake Maloney,
south of North Platte, all the way north to the Buffalo Bill State Historical
Park.
