The Missouri National Recreational River's Mobile Ranger Station is our visitor center on wheels. Look for it throughout the 98-mile River corridor from Fort Randall Dam to Ponca State Park, and at special events in South Dakota, Nebraska, and Iowa, and at our National Parks. The mobile visitor center helps to convey information about the Missouri River and the National Park through exhibits and activities for all ages. Park Rangers are also present at the station to greet and introduce you to your National Park.
