Nebraska's newest large reservoir and the site of a major fish hatchery, Calamus offers prime fishing and camping in the heart of the Sandhills, 6 miles NW of Burwell. Camping, fishing, boating, hiking, sightseeing and hunting are all popular here. The 5,124-acre lake is surrounded by 4,958 acres of gently rolling land, covered with native grasses and forbs. About 1.2 miles of the Calamus River and 3.5 miles of other streams meander through the area. Another highlight is a trip to the Calamus State Fish Hatchery, located below the dam. The hatchery has self-guided tours and displays on raising fish and other topics.
