The Alkali lake monster is a gargantuan, horned, alligator-like beast that is reputed to lurk in the depths of Nebraska's famed Alkali Lake. The monster was claimed to be approximately 40-feet long, with rough, grayish-brown skin.

Alkali Lake, known now as Walgren Lake, is an 80 to 100 acre body of water located in the Sandhills area of Northwestern Nebraska. The lake is also the reputed home of the Alkali Lake Monster which is described as a 40 foot long alligator like creature with rough, grayish brown skin and a horn like appendage located between its eyes and nostrils. Reports of the Alkali Lake Monster started in August of 1921, and the first written account of the monster appeared in a 1922 printing of the Hay Springs News.
