A renovation in 2002 has kept Wildwood Lake, 3 miles south of Valparaiso, an eastern Nebraska favorite for fishing, no-wake boating, camping and much more. A 103-acre lake is featured on the 491-acre property. To fish or hunt at an NRD recreation area, you are required to have a permit from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. All state hunting and fishing regulations apply. Some NRD recreation areas have special size or bag limits for fish; please follow all posted regulations. This lake features some monster channel catfish (catch and release only) along with some great largemouth bass fishing and some of the biggest bluegill around! Crappie and walleye fishing can be good at certain times of the year as well.
