Just minutes from the Missouri River, Elkhorn residents can enjoy the riverfront development, including the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge.
Elkhorn offers plenty of sports and outdoor recreational options including golfing at the Elkhorn Ridge Golf Course, or boating, camping, picnicking and fishing at the Dead Timber State Recreation Area.
