Ticket Policies

  • Tickets must be purchased in advance of your visit.
  • Every member of the party must have a ticket, even children under 3 and UNSM members (free "tickets" available).
  • A state park permit is required for entry to the park. They can be purchased in advance from Nebraska Game & Parks
  • To ensure equal opportunity for visitors to acquire limited tickets during time slots, all ticket purchases are nonrefundable

Park Check-in Procedures

  • Visitors must check in during the first 30 minutes after the time indicated on the purchased ticket.
  • No early entry is allowed.
  • Tickets are forfeit after the 30 minute check-in window has elapsed. This is to protect visitors and maintain park capacities for social distancing.
  • Present a copy of your ticket purchase to the staff at the mobile ticket cart by the parking lot entrance. Printed copies or virtual display on phone or tablet device are acceptable methods. (Note - ticket confirmation emails will come from the UNL Marketplace ticket vendor).
