Overview

The highlight of Verdon State Recreation Area is its spring-fed, 45-acre lake. Renovated in 1998, the lake is filled with hearty, hard-fighting largemouth bass, as well as bluegills, white crappies and channel catfish. Only electric boat motors are allowed on the lake. Verdon's surrounding land offers plenty of picnic tables and grills. A canopy of trees provides shelter from the midday sun for 20 primitive campsites at Verdon State Recreation Area. The sites have access to water. The area's campsite is located next to Nebraska Highway 73, a half-mile west of the town of Verdon in Richardson County, which is in the southeastern corner of the state.
