Wander the Sandy Foothills trails in Ash Hollow State Historical Park and tour the cave where there is evidence of man's presence dating back six millennium. Each June, the locals put on an historically based pageant describing life along the Oregon and Mormon Trails west which includes a chuck wagon dinner.
Beyond the lake, there is plenty to do and see within minutes of Ogallala hotel discounts. Visit the Kingsley Dam, a favorite place for viewing bald eagles. Take the Historic Walk of Fame at your own pace and read markers describing the history of the trails which headed west like the Pony Express. Relive the Wild West days along Front Street where dancing saloon girls, gamblers and wranglers straight off the cattle drives once walked. Then head out onto the Highway 26 and 92 byways along the river to find bison and other wildlife and where you can enjoy the peaceful serenity of the rolling plains before returning to your comfortable, inexpensive Ogallala hotel room.
