The Niobrara National Scenic River and surrounding area offers a wealth of recreation and vacation opportunities. Besides floating the beautiful scenic river by canoe, kayak or tube, there are plenty of area activities and quaint communities to explore.

Enjoy a ranger program or hike on summer weekends. Take a drive through the Fort Niobrara Wildlife Refuge. Go birding at either the Fort Niobrara or the Valentine National Wildlife Refuge. Take short walks to amazing waterfalls in shady side canyons.

Start your trip with a visit to the Niobrara NSR Visitor Center. We'll help you decide where to go in the time you have.
