Overview

Long Lake State Recreation Area is a natural sandhill lake consisting of 155 acres at normal water level. The State of Nebraska owns 80 acres of which 50 acres are marsh or water and 30 acres of rolling sand hills which produce an abundance of warm and cool season grasses. A camping and picnic area is on the southwest shore of the lake and is equipped with tables, fireplaces and toilets. Long Lake provides fishing opportunity in the summer and winter months with bullhead and northern pike being the primary fish caught. Waterfowl hunting is the main game harvest potential offered by Long Lake. The shoreline has an abundance of vegetation affording natural blind sites for waterfowl hunting. Grouse can also be found on the area but with the small amount of land the hunting potential is limited.
