The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission does not allow most OHV use at areas owned or operated by the Commission. There are some exceptions to this. Snowmobiling is allowed at the areas below under certain conditions.

ATVs and snowmobiles are allowed on frozen (8 inches thick) lake surfaces at the following areas:

  • Bluestem State Recreation Area (SRA)
  • Box Butte SRA
  • Branched Oak SRA
  • Calamus SRA
  • Conestoga SRA
  • Enders SRA
  • Fremont Lakes SRA

When there is a minimum of 6 inches of snow on the ground, Branched Oak SRA and Lewis and Clark SRA both offer 5 miles of trails for snowmobiling.

Niobrara State Park offers approximately 2 miles of trails to ride.

If riding at a Commission area, the snowmobile must be registered and must have a valid park entry permit affixed to the vehicle.

Registering Your Snowmobile
It is required that a snowmobile be registered if the vehicle is used outside of land owned or leased by the operator of the vehicle. Find more information on registering a snowmobile.
