Description

Wildlife Management Area (Nebraska MWA) at Yankee Hill Lake. Free rv and tent camping for everyone, no fees charged, that is the reason it's 4 stars. Stay/camping limited to 3 days at a time. There is a pit toilet. No water except for the actual lake. Nice area. Roads are gravel/dirt. You can fish and hunt if you have a permit and it's in season. This WMA and lake is in the middle of the countryside, surrounded by farms. Very quiet except for: owls, hawks, squirrel, rabbits, fox, deer, pheasant, quail, coyotes, birdwatchers, wildlife researchers with noisy notepads and binoculars, wearing tan and green shirts, hunters and fishermen in season. This is close enough to Lincoln, NE, so you could see the north american common wing-less "urban humansis huskorite", occasionally in bright red plumage. They are mostly harmless and pose no threat unless you are from Oklahoma, Texas or Miami.

Note* As a rule: All Nebraska WMA's are free to camp for everyone. Check signs as you enter for each WMA's specific's regulations, if there are any. If you want electrical and water hookups for rv's, you will need to go to a $pay fee "Nebraska State Park", which are really nice but not free, like the free Nebraska WMA's.

Pretty busy when I was here but got nice and quiet at night. Found a spot to tent camp that was nice and isolated and away from the parking lot. Lake is fed from farm runoff and the algae looks pretty suspect so I wouldn't count on any baths in the lake, however it looks to be pretty good fishing if that's your kind of thing.

Very quiet. Plenty of room for large vehicles. Pit toilets. T-mobile 3 bars LTE. But we decided to go to the parking lot on the eastern side of the lake - there’s nobody else there at all!

This place is great! very spacious and has pit toilets (not the nicest and no toilet paper in the woman's but does the job). Some people fishing, but no problems. No garbage or running water. views of the lake all around!

very nice place. Lots of spots to overnight.

Report Check-In

We arrived on a Sunday evening and there was a group of people with dilapidated tents and a beat up car camped in the corner having a heated argument in the middle of the camp/launch area. It's possible that we misjudged this situation but regardless we didn't feel comfortable so we left. This situation was likely limited to the day we arrived, but just a heads up. Otherwise this spot is as described.

Report Check-In

Great place for the night. Lot of fishing during the weekend. No one bothered us. Toilet in really bad condition.

Report Check-In

Great spot away from the highway. we stayed 2 nights and were 100% comfortable. they have 2 vault toilets, not the cleanest but dont let it stop you from coming here. minus 1 star for dirty poopers.

Report Check-In

Great, quiet place to sleep. We arrived just about dusk and weren’t bothered. After a day trip into Lincoln, we may be spending another night here...

Report Check-In

really nice, as it said a few fishermans came but no trouble. there is pit toilet and large space to park

Report Check-In

Nice and quiet just as described by others. We went to the access on 40th street which is 10 miles from I 80.

Report Check-In

Great place! It's a peaceful place to camp. The wildlife is alive and active. It's easy to find yourself drifting off to the sounds of the lake dwellers. Be aware: people often fish at night so don't get creeped out. We had a T-Mobile signal too!
