"JOHNSON LAKE, NEAR ELWOOD, NEBRASKA" Elwood by Rich62

Elwood Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 15 photos

JOHNSON LAKE

Johnson Lake is found just 15 miles north of the small Nebraska town of Elwood. It is also about 15 miles south of Interstate 80 at the Lexington exit. This is a state recreation area and a permit is required.

CHAPEL OF THE LAKE

This interdenominational chapel holds a Sunday morning service throughout the summer. It is attended by travellers who happen to be in the area. Guest pastors from various churches are scheduled, each for one Sunday in the summer. Usually the church is filled to capacity and often some must sit out on the deck, which is not a bad deal.

IN THE COUNTRYSIDE NEAR ELWOOD

I came upon these horses enjoying the day in the countryside near Elwood.

When venturing into the country on gravel roads, I have two suggestions: 1. don't go after it has rained, you could get stuck. 2. Purchase a DeLorme Atlas of Nebraska (or any state where you will be doing country driving) as it will show you every country road and where it goes. These atlases have saved me many miles and much frustration over the years.
