About the map

Nebraska Map Extent

This map displays major rivers, reservoirs, and lakes of Nebraska like Lake McConaughy and Merritt Reservoir. In general, rivers in Nebraska flow into the Gulf of Mexico.

Did you know the east boundary of Nebraska is entirely the Missouri River? It’s true. This river separates the border between South Dakota, Iowa and Missouri. But in the northeast, there’s also the Lewis and Clark Lake that separates it with South Dakota.

The largest lakes in Nebraska are Lake McConaughy and Lewis and Clark Lake. Both lakes are approximately 30,000 acres in area. But Lewis and Clark Lake also stretch out in South Dakota as well.
