Popular Two Rivers State Recreation Area, with its distinctive Caboose "cabins" and put-and-take trout fishing lake is unique among Nebraska's state recreation areas.

Other facilities and activities include excellent campgrounds, a swimming beach with change house, picnicking, fishing in the other sandpit lakes, handicap fishing pier, playgrounds for the children, bicycle rentals, and hunting in season.
