Danish Alps State Recreation Area

Docks (1)

Danish Alps State Recreation Area (SRA) near Hubbard, NE is a 746-acre state rec. area on Kramper Reservoir, a 226-acre lake. Danish Alps includes RV and tent camping, equestrian camping facilities, day use areas, a walking and hiking trail and excellent angling and wildlife watching opportunities.

Kramper Reservoir, a 226-acre lake, was planned with shoreline fishing and boat fishing in mind, and a wide spectrum of aquatic habitat features were incorporated to make this new reservoir suitable for fish to reproduce and grow rapidly. The lake has been stocked with largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, walleye and channel catfish. Anglers are reminded that Kramper Lake is a no-wake lake and that live bait fish are not allowed. Boaters are asked to clean, drain and dry their boats to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species such as zebra mussels. A Nebraska Park Entry Permit is required for each vehicle entering the park.
