This Underrated State Recreation Area Just Might Be The Most Beautiful Place In Nebraska
Out in the hills of western Nebraska, Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area is a haven for all things nature. It was recently named by Thrillist as the most underrated place in Nebraska, and it’s easy to see why. It’s not one of the flashier places in the state, but it is full of opportunities for hiking, biking, picnicking, birdwatching, wildlife spotting, and camping. Oh – and natural beauty like you won’t see anywhere else in Nebraska.
While camping is available, the area is more geared toward day-use. You will need a Nebraska parks pass to enjoy everything that Wildcat Hills has to offer.
