Elks Campground is open year-round.

A boater's paradise, this large irrigation reservoir offers great coves and fingers to explore during the spring and summer months. Anglers, boaters and water skiers enjoy the water all day, while land lovers hike, bike, or picnic.  For more information, click on a link to the left to learn more about summer (and fall, winter, and spring) fun at North Sterling State Park.

Eagle and Hawk Information:

North Sterling carefully monitors the activity of hawks and eagles in the vicinity of the park.  For the most current information on eagle and hawk sightings, check the "Birding" section of the Park Activities page.

The Unique Prairie Experience

Broad, golden grasslands stretch out in all directions from North Sterling Reservoir, bordered by majestic bluffs to the north, farm and ranchlands to the east, and clear blue skies above.

Come sit by a warm campfire, gazing at the bright stars above, while the coyotes sing their nightly song in the distance!

Hunters in the Sky and Down Below

Fall brings the seasonal migration of hawks and eagles to the Sterling area. While some are just passing through, others settle down for the winter where the game is plentiful.  Early morning is the best time for wildlife watching.

Hunters will find excellent waterfowl hunting on the reservoir - check out our Hunting webpage.
