Packer Lake, WY
Just outside Lyman, NE
41.896687, -104.053071

Packers Lake is located just to the southwest of Lyman, NE. The lake is actually part of the Wyoming Game and Fish department but entry is only through the access road from Nebraska. From Hwy 92 take County Line Rd 1 south to the entrance. Watch for the signs. They are hand made pieces of plywood that say “Lake”. Easy to miss but GPS maps show the entrance road.

This lake allows camping for 5 days. No fees for camping. There is a newer vault toilet located on the north side of the lake.

It is suitable for any type of camping rig. Longer rigs would probably be better on the south east side just to the south of where you actually get to the lake on the access. No problem with top side clearance on the drive in.

If you like fishing here’s what WGF has to say:
Packers Lake
Packers Lake is located just inside the Wyoming/ Nebraska border southeast of Torrington. Packers Lake is managed by stocking walleye, black crappie, channel cat- fish and rainbow trout. It provides a unique and diverse warm water fishery. The rainbow trout are stocked in the fall to provide a fall, winter, and early spring fishery. Our sampling in 2006 included gill netting and night electrofishing. The electrofishing was attempted to gather information on largemouth bass. Forty-five largemouth bass were captured ranging in size from 2 to 14 inches. Walleye averaged 14.2 inches and about 1 pound.
