Things To Do


Rock Creek State Recreation Area is a 50-acre lake on Rock Creek with 54 acres of land. This area offers camping, hiking, boating, fishing and picnicking. There are non-designated campsites available.

The area offers primitive camping and there are 43 non-pad sites available. Electric motor and non-powered boats and anglers can take advantage of the opportunities the lake has to offer.

Rock Creek State Fish Hatchery is located in southwest Nebraska, 2.5 miles north of the SRA at the headwaters of Rock Creek. Founded at its current location in 1924 because of the abundant cold water spring flow, it is one of five state fish hatcheries operated by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
