LINCOLN – All access to Blue Lake in Garden County has been closed temporarily by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission because of deteriorating road conditions.
Above-freezing temperatures in recent days have caused the 2.7-mile two-track trail to the lake to be difficult to pass. It has become soft and vulnerable to damage from vehicle traffic. The trail will reopen for access when conditions allow.
A lease agreement with a private landowner allows for public use of the trail leading to the popular fishing spot 22 miles north of Oshkosh near the Crescent Lake Wildlife Management Area.
