Kid friendly lakeside camp

We only stayed one night but Willow Creek was a great waypoint. It is somewhat hard to find by signage, so carefully pay attention to GPS. Kids and families biking and walking and it has very nice paved areas. The May birding around this end of lake was fantastic. Bath facilities were a walk away…

Great place to tent camp!

The only issue I have is when the algae bloom happens every year, then there is no water activity permitted

Unfortunately Willow Creek State Recreation Area, NE was under a health advisory when we arrived due to algae. We drove through the different areas and it was completely deserted so we continued on the Niobrara State Park. I did not check ahead because I just picked it off the map as we were…

  • Not hard to find
  • I learned to check ahead IF you can find a good number to call
