Harlan County is known for being “many things to many people.” Rich, productive farm ground. A quiet, peaceful lifestyle for its 3,400 residents. And a year-round paradise for outdoor sportsmen.
Located in south-central Nebraska and the Republican River Valley, it is home to the Harlan County Dam and Reservoir, the state’s second largest lake that covers 13,250 water surface acres when at full capacity. It’s been estimated the lake and areas that surround it draw an additional 500,000 people to the county annually.
