An old-west cowtown is slowly coming alive on the windswept prairie of northwest Nebraska, surrounded by rugged badlands and framed by trees of our beautiful pine ridge. Amongst the ruggedness and beauty, rejuvenate your spirit through a wide variety of activities that can only happen here and are only limited by your imagination. Some of the most popular activities include; family "get-togethers" and group retreats for the day or overnight in the Bunkhouse cabins, birding, geocaching, fossil hunting, horseback riding (bring your own horse), mountain biking, hunting of all kinds (turkey, deer, antelope and prairie dog) and great cowboy cookin' at the Cookshack. Plus,every night, we offer a front row seat to The Best Show in the Universe..., right off your front porch.

New for 2016, High Plains livin’ any time
of the year in the Sand Creek Cabin


The year round, Sand Creek Cabin at High Plains Homestead, is outfitted with a full kitchen giving you the opportunity to rustle up your own grub or eat in the Cookshack. A full living and dining room, 2 bedroom and 2 baths provide for a comfortable fit; we can accommodate a few lil’ drifters as well.  Arrangements to get them bedded down are simply in the asking.  An adjacent indoor game processing (skinning and quartering) area, during fall and winter hunting seasons, are all part of the deal.
