Lake McConaughy, Big MacYes, it's true - the Cornhusker State is a whole lot more than corn!

In fact, when summer rolls around the state reveals itself in all its natural beauty -- ranging from the spectacular MIssouri River bluffs around Omana and stretching to the dramatic sandhills in Hoosier county.

Dotted by lakes and reservoirs, arguably Nebraska's most popular swimming spots are encompassed within the Lewis and Clark State Recreation Area it shares with bordering South Dakota, along with the 35,700-acre Lake McConaughy State Recreation Area, ("Big Mac") home to the Nebraska's largest reservoir.

A 45-minute drive from Omaha, another popular "hot spot" for keeping your summer cool is Fremont State Recreational Area featuring three swimming beaches and other water activities for splashing the day away.

Check out all that Nebraska has to offer in acres of state parks featuring natural and man-made lakes for swimming, boating, fishing and more ways to beat the heat during a fun Nebraska summer ...
