We've turned lake days into a lifestyle.

We're all about sun, heat, and sandy feet out here, and we're sure you can find your idea of the perfect day here too. Whether you're looking for some R&R or some recreational risk-taking, Lake Ericson offers activities that run the gamut from serene to surreal.

Go for a peaceful early morning dip or get in the competitive spirit by joining our annual fishing tournament. Enjoy fishing, hunting, hiking, biking, kayaking, boating, swimming, tanking, and much more all with small-town Nebraska hospitality and beautiful panoramas you just can't find anywhere else.

Lake Ericson, Nebraska

We know how to have a good time.

Years ago, an old carousel at Lake Ericson was converted into a picnic shelter and now serves as the central hub of our little community. It marks entry into the lake and frequently hosts local events, activities, concerts, and celebrations. The carousel is our capitol building, and we can't think of a more fitting local landmark for a place epitomized by good times.

So to that we say, let the good times roll.

And we invite you to join us.

The lake has an excellent beach and swimming area that's a favorite activity for visitors and locals alike. And you can also find several picnic and camping areas to enjoy with friends and family. Then on the south end of the lake is the dam, which offers various fishing holes that are teeming with some of the largest fish in the state! Although Lake Ericson is a NO-WAKE lake, we do offer a boat ramp, which welcomes all kinds of boats and pontoons as well as a handicapped fishing access dock.
