February is National Heart Month and if you love to camp any time of the year, consider Valentine, Nebraska. Located in north central Nebraska is the little town of Valentine – population 2800. Along its wide Main Street, downtown Valentine is home to arts and craft shops, bookstores, museums, a cyber cafe and one of the area’s largest western wear stores. But it’s what lies outside of town that attracts many visitors to this area. There’s too much to mention each, so click on the link above.
The town is in the center of a diverse region of quiet lakes, grassy sand hills, secluded waterfalls, wildlife refuges, a national forest and one of the top 10 canoeing rivers in the USA. Merritt Trading Post Resort is a wonderful place to stay and take advantage of all the area has to offer.
Whatever the season, there is always plenty to do and see at the Merritt Trading Post Resort.
If relaxing on a soft sandy beach appeals to you, you will find Merritt Reservoir’s 44 miles of shoreline to rival those found anywhere in the world.
If stargazing is your hobby, the near zero light pollution and low haze attract astronomers from around the world. More fun can be had swimming, bird watching, geocaching, outdoor and nature photography, hiking, fishing, boating, hunting and mountain biking are just some of the activities you might enjoy.
The Trading Post is open year round for families and outdoorsmen, weddings, vacations or reunions.
There are 15 rental cabins with a total of 42 beds, along with 7 campsites with hookups that can be reserved for large groups. It would be the perfect setting for your next family reunion!
