Due to continuing high water in the Elkhorn River creating extremely dangerous boating conditions, all Papio-Missouri River NRD Elkhorn River access sites in Douglas County will remain closed through the upcoming July 4th weekend.

John Winkler, Papio-Missouri River NRD General Manager says if the river returns to near-normal conditions we will reopen the sites sometime the following week.  

The NRD’s Platte River Landing access site near NE Highway 64 in western Douglas County remains open.

The closed Elkhorn River access sites include Elkhorn Crossing, Graske Crossing and the NRD’s W. Maple Road site.
