Directions: The Salt Creek reservoirs are mostly located west and south of Lincoln, Ne. Holmes Lake is on the southeast side of lincoln near 70th & Normal Streets.

Factoid: The Salt Creek and Tributaries Flood Control Project was authorized by the Federal Flood Control Act of 1958 to provide flood damage reduction, water quality, recreation, and fish and wildlife enhancement. The basin drains a 1645 square mile area encompassing the city of Lincoln. The 10 Salt Creek lakes provide recreation for local residents and vital habitat for wildlife. The Corps of Engineers leases all but one of its Salt Creek Reservoirs to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commision. They are collectively referred to as the Salt Valley Lakes.
