WELCOME to the CAPITOL BEACH COMMUNITY!
Capitol Beach Lake is a Private 300 acre lake located less than 10 minutes from downtown Lincoln. Year round residences and weekend get-a-ways surround the lake. There is no PUBLIC beach or access to the lake. Lakeside living provides enjoyment in many different forms. In the summer time, the lake is used by residents and their guests for a multitude of outdoor recreational purposes, that include fishing , boating, water-skiing, jet skiing, swimming and sailing. In the wintertime, many residents use the ice for skating and other activities.
Beautiful views exist from nearly every vantage point around the lake. Wildlife abounds on and near the lake, including, waterfowl, blue heron, pheasants, deer, mink, and even red fox! The lake has long been regarded as the “best kept secret in Lincoln by its residents”, for the unique life style afforded by living near the water. There is something “magical” about the sound of the water outside your back door. The Capitol Beach Community Association (CBCA) is comprised strictly of property owners abutting the lake. The association actively manages the lake, assuring its continued enjoyment by all residents. Streets on the West and North side of the lake are private, for residents only.
Adjacent to the lake is the Saline Wetland Park, created in a joint venture with the Capitol Beach Community Association, the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District and other generous contributors. This wetlands park is open to the public with nature trails and an observation “hide” to allow people to view area wild life in its natural enviorment. Access to the “trail head” can be gained at the public parking lot, located near the corner of Lamont and West Lake Industrial Drive.
