The Largest Man-Made Forest In The U.S. Is Nebraska National Forest And It’s A Unique Place To Visit
Nebraska’s reputation as a treeless wasteland is quickly disproven when one begins to explore our vastly varied landscapes. In the middle of the rolling Sandhills is a remarkable, unexpected place that exists solely due to the determination of one man.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
Admission is always free, though there are fees for camping. Visit the Nebraska Natural Forest Bessey Ranger District any time of the year, though some activities are restricted in the winter months. To find out more about this truly remarkable place, view the Forest Service’s site here.
