Big Indian Recreation Area covers 233 acres including a 77 acre lake located 6 miles east of Odell, Nebraska.  Built in 1972 with recreational facilities added in 1974, this area became the first ever NRD managed recreation area in the state of Nebraska. In 2011, Big Indian was renovated with the addition of multiple sediment dikes and breakwater structures, shoreline stabilization, a new boat ramp and boat dock, a handicap accessible restroom, and many more additional improvements and amenities to vastly enhance the water quality and recreation area as a whole.
