FREMONT, Neb. (KMTV) — Fremont Lakes is back open Wednesday after March flooding caused the recreation area to close.

Jeff Fields, the Regional Superintendent of Nebraska Game & Parks, says all areas are now open for public recreation except for the following limitations:

1. There is a No Wake/5mph speed limit on lakes 10, 15 (Victory) and 20 due to potential hazards. In the next couple of weeks, removal of the hazards will be ongoing. Normal recreational boating on these lakes can be expected by the end of May.

2. Electrical sites 1-11 in the Cottonwood Cove Campground, located in the North Camping area, will be open. Sections of Cottonwood Cove will be open for primitive camping. Fisherman's Point Campground in the North Camping Area will be closed to all camping until further notice due to remaining high lake levels and damage to roads.

3. Pathfinder Campground access will be from the west side of the area, just off County Road 19. Victory Lake and Pathfinder Campgrounds are open for camping.

4. Both East and West entrances to the South Camping areas will be open. A valid 2019 Park Permit is required.

5. Portions of roadways damaged due to floods have been closed. Be aware of cautionary signs and barricades.
