  • The area is great for hikes due to the hills but the ticks are terrible. I will not be back during the spring/summer/fall months due to the number of ticks we picked off ourselves and the dogs. I understand it's a nature center but at some point it becomes a safety/disease issue. Spray the trails for ticks.
  • Huge site with tons of different things to do. It's well organized with the different experienced trails being labeled, and there's fun off-the-beaten-path deer trails that have gorgeous views. This is the best place to hike and camp, though it's a little ways away from Omaha. Plus, only $2 admission per car!
  • Great spot to hike. Some hills but not too bad. Parking was easy. There were indoor bathrooms available!
  • The best kept secret in the Omaha metro area. All types of camping, hiking, activities for kids at the lodge. Best part is the views from the tall hills and the look out deck.
  • This is a very nice and hilly hiking trail. However there is about a 4-mile unlaced road that you have to take before you get to the trail.
