This Is The Newest State Park In Nebraska And It’s Incredible

Although Nebraska only has eight official state parks, we have many, many state recreation areas. This one in far northeastern Nebraska opened in late July 2015, making it one of the newest in a collection of wonderful places that we can go to experience and enjoy the outdoors.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

This is truly a special place to spend a day or weekend outdoors. Watch the video below for more information on this beautiful recreation area.

You’ll need a state parks pass to get onto the property. Have you visited Danish Alps State Recreation Area yet? What did you think of it? Tell us about your experiences in the comments!
