“great lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

If you want off the beaten trail, Burwell and it's great restaurants and lake accommodations are a steal. Don't miss the sandstone grill.

“One of Nebraska's best sandhills beaches.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

From late June till mid August, you can usually count on fine, hot, sunny weather--great for lounging and swimming along the beaches of Calamus Reservoir. It's in the Nebraska Sandhills, so the shore is almost all beach, narrow in the spring, wide in late summer. The Sandhills are pristine; enjoy every minute, don't spoil it. It's like three and a half hours from Syracuse, Nebraska. Fine camping--showers only in Homestead Knolls. Support our fine state parks.
