Tiny But Mighty, The Smallest State Park In Nebraska Is A Hidden Gem Worth Exploring
Nebraska’s vast plains, rolling sandhills, and sweeping rocky landscape afford us plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Our state parks system – which includes state parks, state historical parks, and state recreation areas – offers a variety of places to play and learn. You may be familiar with our largest state park, Ft. Robinson State Park, and the oldest one, Chadron State Park, but do you know what the smallest Nebraska state park is?
The smallest state park in Nebraska is also one of the most history-packed places you can visit. Take an afternoon and visit this impressive recreation of a typical military outpost from homesteader days. You will need a Nebraska State Parks pass to enter, which you can buy in advance or purchase at the park. An extra fee applies if you’d like to visit the visitor interpretive center. For up-to-date fees and the current year’s operating hours, check with the Nebraska State Parks Commission.
