Share this article

The Little Blue Natural Resources District (Nebraska) opened its doors to 20 concrete RV pads with electrical hook-ups at Prairie Lake Recreation Area south of Juniata on Friday morning.

As per a report, water and electricity are now turned on in the recreation area, located south of Prairie Lake Road, three miles south and a half-mile east of Juniata.

The new campground and LBNRD campgrounds at Liberty Cove Recreation Area near Lawrence, Lone Star Recreation Area south of Milligan, and Buckley Creek Recreation Area near Reynolds have all opened for the season on Friday.

The camping area has a concrete restroom building nearby but does not provide showers or a dump station.

Scott Nelson, LBNRD general manager, said that the fee for campers using electrical connections is just $20 for the night, payable through honor boxes installed. The spots are open on a no-reservation first-come, first-served basis.

The Prairie Lake Recreation Area, established in 1980, is surrounded by a 65-acre body of water formed five years earlier when a flood control dam was constructed on Thirty-Two Mile Creek. In total, the NRD owns 160 acres of property.

The NRD has invested over $200,000 in recreation improvements at Prairie Lake over the past several years, Nelson said. This includes $80,000 spent last year to build 20 RV pads that contain 30-50 amps of electrical capacity. Each has an individual fire ring and trees to provide shade.

“The goal was to create a family-friendly park,” Nelson said.
