This scenic area east of Alexandria, Nebraska encompasses 1,769 acres of park and wildlife lands including two lakes, totaling 43 acres of water. The lakes have recently undergone reconstruction and renovation and offers some excellent fishing opportunities. Surveys indicate the lakes contain the largest number of bass in the region, some longer than 15 inches. Anglers also have success catching bluegills and channel catfish. Fishing is usually best in the early spring and late fall because underground springs provide nutrients to the lakes, causing excessive weed growth in summer. A gravel road encircling one lake and most of the other provides easy fishing access.
Alexandria SRA is located four miles east of the town of Alexandria in northwestern Jefferson County. The modern campground has plenty of shade trees and offers 25 sites with 30 amp electrical hookup and 15 sites without electricity. A small swimming beach is available.
