Schramm Park State Recreation Area is a state recreation area in southeast Nebraska, United States, on the north side of the Platte River in Sarpy County.

The area currently has 3 miles (4.8 km) of scenic nature trails, picnic areas, the Ak-Sar-Ben Aquarium and the Gretna State Fish Hatchery, the oldest fish hatchery in the State of Nebraska, established in 1882. The hatch house is now operated as a fish hatchery museum.[1]

The Ak-Sar Ben Aquarium features twelve viewing tanks with a variety of fish species. The facility also features a theater and a large terrarium with reptiles and amphibians.

The 331 acres (134 ha) park is a day use park only, but overnight camping is available 5 miles (8.0 km) east at Louisville State Recreation Area, on the south bank of the Platte River.
