Money For Mahoney State Park

Park tourism improvement plans. Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman outlined a plan of improvements and expansion at Mahoney State Park in Cass County.

“Tourism is important to Nebraska, and these strategic investments will help meet the current demands” at the park, says the governor.

At Mahoney, Nebraska’s second busiest tourist attraction, the funding will go to expanding deluxe cabins. These lodging units will be available year-round and will greatly enhance one of Nebraska’s premiere state parks, says Heineman.

The funding is in the governor’s proposed biennium budget.

In 2010, more than 1 million people visited Mahoney State Park, generating more than $52 million in retail sales. With all trip related expenditures factored in, the state says the yearly economic impact of Mahoney State Park is nearly $87 million. This economic activity supports more than 800 jobs.
