Plan Your Visit
Visiting Niobrara National Scenic River is a bit different from more traditional National Park sites. Lands along the river remain in private ownership, except for Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge (launch site), Smith Falls State Park (launch, camping, etc.) and Brewer Bridge Landing (launch site).Local businesses provide watercraft rental, shuttle, campground and lodging services and provide river access at other landings along the river. To make reservations, contact the business of your choice from this List of River Outfitters.
