Cottonwood Lake reopens

June 5, 2019 Justin Haag

MERRIMAN, Neb. – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has reopened Cottonwood Lake State Recreation Area.

Park superintendent Diane Burress said visitors to the park should be cautious and choose camping areas wisely. Shallow water remains over the paved entrance road in places, and some camping areas are still flooded or muddy.

Flooding prompted closure of the Sandhills park in late May.
