Fees & Passes

Overview of entrance requirements

No entrance pass required

An entrance pass is not required to access Niobrara National Scenic River.

Other National Park Service sites may require an entrance pass or fee. Depending on your trip plans, an interagency pass may save you money.

The NPS does not own the land along the river, individual sites and private landowners may charge a fee. The Niobrara National Scenic River can be accessed by the public for free. Check out our "What to Know Before You Go" article series for more guidance on navigating private landings and shuttles that do charge fees.
