Lake McConaughy also known as “Big Mac” with its smooth white beaches and blue waters, has been the lake of choice for many Nebraskans; as well as the surrounding states. Approximately 9 miles north of Ogallala near Highway 26 and Hwy 61, Lake McConaughy is a reservoir on the North Platte River. It was constructed to store water for irrigation and later also used as a hydro-electric plant . Between 1936 and 1941 the lake was formed by Kinglsey Dam. When full, the lake's capacity is approximately 4 miles wide 76 miles of shoreline, and 22 miles long and 145 feet deep,near the dam. The source of water for Lake McConaughy is primarily the North Platte River and snowmelt from the mountains in Wyoming.
Water flows out of Lake McConaughy through the Morning Glory Tower into the other side which is known as Lake Ogallala. This smaller lake is known for great fishing as well as camping.
Lake McConaughy has become a popular recreational site for boating, jet skiing, tubing, wake boarding, fishing, hunting, bird watching, sand sculpting, and perfect for sailing enthusiasts such as hobie cat, hydro foiling, kite surfing, parasailing, and much much more.
For over 30 years, we have been diehard fans of Lake McConaughy. We first learned about "Big Mac" from our friend Jim, an Ogallala Alumni. He bragged about how awesome the lake was and that we had to see it. During our first visit to the lake, we completely fell in love with it!
From then on, we became professional tent campers. From air mattresses to solar showers, you named it-we had it! We later got so tired of hauling and carrying everything, that we decided to get a camper. And how easy it was! Since 1984- we have not missed a beat. We brought our children here every year! Sometimes 8 to 10 times per year. Our kids grew up as sand babies. And now, we find enjoyment seeing them share the lake with their friends. The great times we continue to have with our family and friends are cherishable moments that is now passed down to our children!
And that's how Lake Mac RV Rentals developed. The experience we've had at the lake is priceless and now we can educate our customers what we have learned about Lake McConaughy. We want all our clients to experience the comfort of lakeside “home-away from home” camper living. Renting a camper provides you options. You can come indoors and protect yourself from the scorching sun. You can sit on the couch and relax with a book or watch a movie that you haven't had time for. At night, it is nice to hear the waves softly crashing on the shore while you lay in bed.
