An abundance of recreation sites are located intermittently around the reservoir offering primitive camping at 360 non-electrical site and day-use facilities, including drinking water, vault toilets and shelters. Recreation area facilities include picnic tables, shelters, water, dumpstation, modern restrooms, four boat ramps, fish cleaning stations, coin-operated showers and concession. Cabin rental and RV camping pads are available through Trade Winds Marina.
Among the most popular of the lake\'s many accesses, Trail 1 leads to several hard-surfaced recreation sites at the southwest end of the dam including Redwood, Thunder Bay Boat Ramp, West Ridge, Middle Ridge and East Ridge areas. In addition to basic recreational services, the area headquarters building, coin-operated showerhouse and dump station are located on Trail 1.
Located at the far northeast end of the dam, Trail 2 affords hard-surface vehicle access to the popular Marina Bay Boat Ramp area and the Trade Winds Marina, the reservoir\'s concession facility.
Trails 3, 8, 10 & 11
These trails lead to the Ash Canyon, Moon Creek, Dead Horse Creek and Oak Creek recreation sites, respectively. Offering slightly more primitive camping opportunities, these four recreational accesses are ever popular with families who like to get away from it all. Facilities are limited to drinking water and vault toilets and a boat ramp on Trail 10. Access into these areas is over gravel surface roads which can become difficult to navigate during wet periods.
Address: Access road on Hwy 92 at Loup City
