Aggies Acres - in the Heart of Nebraska Sandhills Country
Aggies Acres is a new residential development located along the Calamus Lake, in the middle of the Nebraska Sandhills. Only 6 miles northwest of Burwell, Nebraska - Aggies Acres is the oldest and largest development at the Calamus Lake. This recreational housing development is designed to accommodate building lots with a panoramic view of the lake.

Large acreages of planted trees will maintain a park like setting within the community and with each passing year improve the surroundings. Engineers have carefully designed Aggies Acres with compatible building codes and covenants to protect your investment. The community is a well thought out and offered by a family with local experience in the unique terrain of the Nebraska sandhills.

The development is midway between the dam and the mouth of the Calamus River feeding the reservoir. The Lake is fed from the spring waters in Rock and Brown counties, traveling 60 miles over sand to the reservoir. The Calamus Lake is over 10 miles long, about 2 miles wide and has over 28 miles of shoreline with a mix of sandy beach and habitat areas.

The multi-use recreation area includes fishing, boating, swimming, camping, hunting, and just plain sight-seeing. A huge fishery at the base of the dam stocks the lake with blue gill, walleye, smallmouth and largemouth bass in addition to the channel catfish and northerns already present.

The lake is over 10 miles long and holds 5,127 surface acres at full pool.

Aggies Acres is the name of the development at the Calamus Lake for custom homes. Aggies Acres is also part of Mike's Meadow, which is a development for modular and mobile homes. Both developments are represented by Ronald Shonka, Burwell NE.
