White sand and great waves!! Lots of campers... Access down to the lake only by 4-wheelers or tractors?? we saw a lot of them.. Campers need to pick up their trash... The sign says it all...leave only your footprints... A must stop for the family!!

Lake Ogallala is right behind the Kingsley damn, and is a great place to be one with nature. It has great campgrounds and fishing galore. If your wanting to see snadhill cranes come here between January and March.
