Spend a relaxing afternoon outside. This lake sits amid several different housing developments in one of Omaha's fastest growing corridors.

Here is the perfect place to spend a sunny day. Boating, sailing and fishing top the list of favorite activities, but you do not have to go in the water to have fun. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the view or kick back on a bench and relax. Steep sledding hills and cross-country skiing draw people here in the winter. A campground makes this lake unique, with 57 spots complete with electricity for RVs. Tents are also welcome. Admission is free; however, there is a charge for camping facilities.
Nestled amid a growing suburb, this lake and recreation area sits on more than 1,000 acres of land. You will find baseball fields and a soccer field, features not available at similar city lakes.

Covered picnic areas ensure not even a rain shower will ruin your lunch or supper. Admission is free.
