Eugene T. Mahoney State Park

Eugene T. Mahoney State Park (the “Park”) is a public recreation area located on the Platte River, off Interstate 80, approximately four miles (6.4 km) east of Ashland, Nebraska. The Park features lodging and conferencing facilities, an aquatic center, marina, multi-purpose trails, the Kountze Memorial Theater, multiple facilities for event rentals, and a 70-foot (21 m) observation tower overlooking the Platte River Valley. In 2014, the park was the state's third most visited tourist attraction.

Park development began with the state's purchase of the site in 1985. The park opened in 1991. It was named after Eugene T. Mahoney, a former state senator and long-time director of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, who is credited with reversing the fortunes of the moribund state park system during his directorship. The park bears the Mahoney family crest as its symbol and has a loop of cabins named for Ireland's County Cork, the Mahoney family's ancestral home.
