This One Destination Has The Absolute Bluest Water In Nebraska

Although we have miles and miles of rivers and hundreds – maybe thousands if you count all of those little ones in the Sandhills – of lakes, Nebraska isn’t exactly known for having rich blue water. It’s not that our water isn’t clean and beautiful, but in general, you can expect it to have a slight brown coloration. All except for a few places…and this one is king.

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:

Lake Mac might be the most popular, but we know there are other bodies of water out there with beautiful blue water. What’s your favorite? Tell us about it in the comments! Meanwhile, here are some of the best places to swim in Nebraska with clear, clean water – just be sure to get out there before summer slips away.
