The scenic Louisville State Recreation Area has long been popular with eastern Nebraska outdoor enthusiasts and has now become an important adjunct to nearby Platte River State Park. The area boasts an excellent complex for Recreational Vehicles (RVs).
The area is situated on the south bank of the Plate River in Cass County, near the north edge of the community of Louisville on Nebraska Highway 50. It is ideally located for campers who want to enjoy not only this picturesque area itself, but also take advantage of the facilities at Platte River State Park.
Encompassing some 192 acres, Louisville has five sandpit lakes with some 50 surface acres of water. Surrounded by towering cottonwood trees, this inviting area offers picnicking, swimming, fishing, non-power boating, and canoe access to the Platte River in addition to camping. Anglers will find bass, catfish and bluegill in all of the lakes.
