KEARNEY — In the camping world, Buffalo County Recreation Area might be one of Nebraska’s best kept secrets.
But the secret is getting out, and with each new improvement, there are more reasons for campers to discover the quiet and convenience of the campground — also known as Ravenna Lake — in northern Buffalo County.
According to numbers provided by Steve Gaasch, Buffalo County facilities manager, attendance at Ravenna Lake has grown in recent years. Some of that growth is attributable to the COVID pandemic, which spurred an increase in camping. Some of the growth can be traced to the ongoing investments being made to the park.
