Although there are lots of ghost towns in Nebraska, very few of them are located conveniently within a state park and served by a system of hiking trails. The former town of St. Deroin is a part of Indian Cave State Park near Shubert, in Richardson County, in far southeastern Nebraska. This is one ghost town that you can hike directly into – and maybe even experience the past while you’re there.
Whether you take a long hike or just walk from your car to the town site, St. Deroin is a must-see in southeastern Nebraska. Have you ever visited? We’d love to hear about your experiences in the comments.
