In 2021, we’re challenging you to explore our diverse state park system in honor of our parks centennial! We’re asking you to snap a selfie at one of our parks and share your story for a chance to win prizes. The best stories and photos will be included in our centennial time capsule, which will be preserved and shared with future generations.
Your Parks Adventure begins May 22 and ends Nov. 30.
How it works
If you visit Nebraska’s first three parks, Chadron State Park, Victoria Springs State Recreation Area, and Arbor Lodge State Historical Park, and our newest one, Danish Alps State Recreation Area — and submit a photo taken at each park’s selfie station — you’ll be entered for a chance to win our grand prize: a Forest River RV Patriot Edition 14cc from AC Nelsen RV World.
All participants who complete the grand prize challenge will receive a limited edition commemorative challenge coin. Challenge participants can be registered only once for the grand prize drawing.
The entry form to submit your story and photo will be added to this page closer to the Your Parks Adventure launch date, so be sure to check back in May!
Want to build your own adventure? You still can!
Visit any one our state parks, find the selfie station, and snap a photo. Use the same entry form as above to submit your selfie and trip story. All participants will receive a commemorative parks centennial sticker.
The more selfie stations you visit and enter into our challenge, the more chances you will have to win centennial swag during our monthly prize drawing.
Where to go
Find a park
Nebraska’s incredible state parks system allows you to enjoy the beauty of every corner of Nebraska. Find which park suits your first-time camper.
Found your spot? Now figure out what you’ll fill your time with. There’s more than campfires and outdoor cooking to enjoy in the Great Outdoors.
Get your special-edition parks permit
The Nebraska state parks system requires a park permit for each vehicle entering the grounds. Your park vehicle entry permit funds park improvements, including building upgrades, campground improvements and wildlife viewing restoration.
