Dead Timber Recreation Area | Powerderhorn Wildlife Management Area

A few miles north of Scribner on Highway 275, are Dead Timber State Recreation Area and the adjoining Powerhorn Wildlife Management Area, which provides an ideal setting for hunting in various seasons. Dead Timber is a 200-acre area with newly remodeled facilities for camping, fishing, and hiking. The name Dead Timber is believed to have first been used by Native Americans after a fire in the region left many dead trees. Old-timers say that the Indians camped near the Elkhorn River behind the high bluffs during the winter. When summer came they traveled several miles to the northwest to camp along a river lake. During one of their winter encampments, the story goes, a fire got out of hand and burned all the timber in the area.

Modern campers at Dead Timer will find electrical hookups, water, picnic shelters, and fireplaces. Dead Timer offers peaceful seclusion for an afternoon or a weekend. A state park permit is required.

Riverfront Park

The park is located east of the river bridge on the banks of the Elkhorn River. It is one of very few public accesses to the river. Here people of all ages can hike, fish, launch a canoe, or just take a leisurely walk. The area offers woodchip pathways. In the spring and summer the site is ablaze of color with over 37 varieties of wildflowers and native grasses. It is often possible to see wildlife, including a wide variety of small birds, turkey, pheasants and deer. It offers a very pleasant way of enjoying a bit of country yet so close to town.

 

Scribner City Park-NSA Affiliate Site

Located at the center of a residential area east of Main Street, this one block square park has been designated as a Nebraska Arboretum Affiliate Site with the planting and labeling of many varieties of new trees and shrubs.

This lovely park is the center of outdoor activities all year long. In the summer it is where many children play, run and pretend. There is playground equipment and lots of park benches, picnic tables, shelters and restroom facilities . . . The basketball court is always busy.

This park has long been the site of family picnics and reunions. The old historic bandstand is in the center of the park and was the site of many band concerts and entertainment. Nearby is the Firemen’s Monument, a memorial to firefighters lost in the line of duty.

This lovely and tranquil site invites visitors to stop and drink in the beauty of the out-of-doors.
