LINCOLN, Neb. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is reminding park visitors and area residents of the mandatory permitting process for tractors operating on the beaches of Lake McConaughy State Recreation Area (SRA).
Game and Parks has created a simple, required permitting process that follows state park regulations and allows for more towing operations on McConaughys beaches. All tractors are required to obtain an annual permit, regardless of whether they are for commercial or private use. There is currently no fee for the permit and an application can be picked up at the Lake McConaughy Visitor/Water Interpretive Center or can be requested via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Liability insurance is required for any permit issuance. Contact Colby Johnson at 308-284-8804 or email@example.com for more information.
During public meetings held in the Ogallala area during the creation of the 2016 Lake McConaughy/Lake Ogallala Master Plan, Game and Parks received several comments indicating the desire to have more tractors operating on the beaches to provide services to an increasing number of park visitors.
