    Hi I was wondering if your Campground is having A Halloween festivities weekend this year????

    • Hi Deb,
      I checked and because of Covid restrictions they want you to contact the park directly to check on special events at the state parks – including the Halloween festival at For Kearny State Park. The phone number there is: (308) 865-5305. You can also send them an email at ngpc.fort.kearny@nebraska.gov
