Pawnee State Recreation Area (SRA) is a state recreation area in southeastern Nebraska, United States. The recreation area surrounds the 740 acres (3.0 km2) Pawnee Lake, located approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) west of Lincoln. The recreation area is managed by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. Pawnee Lake is the second largest of the Salt Valley Lakes.

In more recent years, swimming has been prohibited at times because of toxic algae.
