  • Johnson Lake Master Trails Plan

    Posted July 5, 2012 (PDF file).  Johnson Lake residents are actively promoting the goal of a trail circling the entire lake.  Having a planning document such as this Master Trail Plan that identifies routes and facilities will enable the creation of a safe and accessible trail system.  The Master Trail Plan serves as a guide for routes and projects and is subject to adjustments as conditions and experience necessitate. –CLICK HERE TO VIEW PART 1     –CLICK HERE TO VIEW PART 2  –CLICK HERE TO VIEW PART 3

  • Recreational Resources

    The development of The Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District created many unforeseen benefits. Originally constructed in the late 1930s and early 1940s to bring irrigation to a parched area of south-central Nebraska — while generating hydroelectric power — the recreational benefits of the project’s reservoirs, canals, and canyon lakes soon became apparent. By impounding the unpredictable flows of the North Platte River in Lake McConaughy and diverting some of the river’s flow into a supply canal that created other reservoirs, the project laid the groundwork for the development of varied water-related outdoor recreation unique in the central Great Plains.

    This document summarizes recreational facilities and opportunities available within The Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District.
