Verdon State Recreation Area


Park Snapshot


Verdon has a 45-acre lake and 30 acres of land adjacent. This area offers primitive camping and picnicking.


The highlight of Verdon SRA is its spring-fed, 45-acre lake. Renovated in 1998, the lake is filled with chunky, hard-fighting largemouth bass, as well as bluegills, white crappies and channel catfish. Only electric boat motors are allowed on the lake.

"Verdon was one of the first projects we did with the aquatic habitat program, and we feel like it's been one of our better projects," said Jeff Jackson, district fisheries manager. "Fishermen should be able to do pretty well there."

A canopy of trees provides shelter from the midday sun for 20 campsites at Verdon SRA, but no electricity is available. It 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.
