Lake McConaughy is Nebraska’s biggest lake and the largest reservoir in a four state region.  At full storage, Lake Mac is twenty miles long, four miles wide, and 142 feet deep at the dam.  Built on the edge of the Nebraska Sandhills, Lake Mac offers natural white sand beaches, excellent fishing, boating, camping and all types of outdoor recreation.
