Since its inception, the Central Nebraska Public Power & Irrigation District has made a continuous and concerted effort to provide quality recreational opportunities at its facilities.  Through cooperation with the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission as well as private developers, the combined facilities of the District provide abundant recreational opportunities in Nebraska.

There are more than 5,900 acres of land adjacent to Central waters that are designated as State Recreation Areas.  Another 6,879 acres have been set aside as Wildlife Management Areas. NGPC leases this land at no cost.  The balance of the project land, excluding some areas restricted for operational purposes, is open to the public for recreation activitiy.
