One of eastern Nebraska’s most popular recreation areas, Fremont Lakes State Recreation Area has about 40 land acres and nearly 300 water acres in 20 sandpit lakes. Located three miles west of Fremont, this is a favorite area with campers, picnickers and water enthusiasts who come for great boating, fishing and water skiing.
Powerboating is allowed on lakes 10 and 15. All other lakes are open to non-power craft and electric trolling motors. For safety and to ease congestion, towing more than two individual skiers behind any boat is prohibited at Victory Lake.
Largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie and channel catfish are available in the various lakes. Additionally, muskies are stocked in Lake 20 and rainbow trout are seasonally stocked in Lake 2. The area boasts excellent access for shore anglers, five floating and four ADA-accessible fishing piers, five fishing decks, two ADA-accessible fishing decks and eight fishing nodes.
