Scenic Willow Creek State Recreation Area draws its name from the meandering stream that feeds the Elkhorn River in northeast Nebraska. It covers some 1,633 acres, including a 700-acres flood-control reservoir. The area is particularly popular with campers, anglers, picnickers and hunters.
The reservoir accommodates both anglers and boaters. The main body of the lake is open to all boating and to water skiing, while the wooded west end (about half the lake surface) is restricted to 5 mph, wakeless boating.
Parts of the recreation area are open to hunting, in season, beginning the first Tuesday after Labor Day.
