Dead Timber State Recreation Area
This 200 acre area near Scribner on the Elkhorn River has 50 acres of water and offers primitive camping, picnicking, fishing and non powered boating. The area has 17 pads with 30-amp electrical hookups, primitive camping, drinking water and latrines.
Dead Timber lies amidst the oxbow waters of the Elkhorn River. A neighboring wildlife management area also provides opportunity for fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing.
Due to budget cuts, mowing routines in some park areas will be reduced and concentrated around holiday weekends. Not only in the 25 primitive camp areas but possibly around the 17 camp pad areas with electricity. Plan for that possibility. You will need to pack your own trash out as well. However, water, electricity, and three restrooms will remain in service.
