Water Recreation

On the Water

Public Boat Access

Lake Cunningham is a no-wake lake, 5mph. The public boat ramp is open for use during park hours from 5:00am-11:00pm. 

Water Safety

Swimming is not permitted at Lake Cunningham. We do kindly ask for the safety of our patrons, to please wear a life jacket if you will be on or near the water. 


Catch and release will be heavily promoted at Lake Cunningham in the first few years to allow for the growth of fish and the proper development of fisheries. Since 2020, catfish, white bass, bluegill, largemouth bass and crappie have been stocked in the lake in preparation for the park reopening in 2021. To see stocking details, visit outdoornebraska.gov/fish-stocking-database.
