Starting this summer, campers will need a reservation to stay overnight at Lake McConaughy and Lake Ogallala state recreation areas during the peak season. This includes all campgrounds AND beach camping areas at the two SRAs. All overnight visitors should check occupancy and book an overnight campsite on the reservation system before departing home.

The reservation season for 2021 is May 21 to September 12. The new system went in place to accept reservations starting April 21. Overnight campers with a valid reservation are highly encouraged to arrive and check in with park staff, in-person, at the Visitor Center or a staffed entrance booth between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. Mountain Time. The state recreation areas will remain open for day use at designated areas with no capacity limits.

Reservations made prior to April 21 will be honored. There are 3 ways to make a reservation:
• Online at NebraskaStateParks.ReserveAmerica.com
• Download the ‘RA Camping’ app for iOS or Android

• Call the park office during business hours: 308-284-8800
