Nearby population centers within a 2-hour driving distance include Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska, and Council Bluffs and Sioux City, Iowa.

The Schramm Park Trail consists of two loop trails making a continuous 3-mile hiking-nature trail with observation points along the high bluffs overlooking _ the Platte River. Unusual rock outcroppings, extensive hardwood forest, rest areas, and interpretive signs are attractions along the trail. The Aquarium planned Fish Hatchery Museum, and the Education Center offers complementary recreation features. Motorized vehicles are prohibited on the trail.
