Bruce L. Anderson (Recharge Lake)

W 4th St
York, NE 68467
Located less than a mile from highway 34 just outside of York, this easy to access recreation area offers the largest lake and one amenity not offered at any of the other NRD managed areas—an archery range. The 14-acre outdoor range features 25 covered bale targets, elevated platforms, and a variety of shooting situations. The lake was originally constructed for a five-year aquifer recharge study but is now used primarily for recreation. While many still know it simply as Recharge Lake, it was renamed in memory of Bruce Anderson, conservation advocate and longtime member of the Upper Big Blue NRD board of directors. Anderson Recreation Area has everything you need for family fun, including tent and RV camping, grills, picnic tables, and restrooms. Two dock areas offer ideal spots for fishing and wildlife viewing. Hiking trails surround much of the lake. A playground and amphitheater make it an ideal gathering spot for groups

The Bruce L. Anderson Recreation Area features a 44-surface-acre lake which stores 310 acre feet of water on a tributary of Beaver Creek.
