Part of the Missouri National Recreational River, both a unit of the National Park System and the National Wild and Scenic River Systems. The overlook, by the Newcastle-Vermillion Bridge on Highway 15, offers a spectacular view of the Missouri River. Handicapped accessible for a good portion, the paved walk to various lookouts is moderately strenuous, but well worth it. Interpretive panels tell local stories.

With 1,234 acres, it has more than 12 miles of hiking trails and a two-mile hike-bike trail that follows an old railroad grade and which crosses the Niobrara on a vintage iron truss bridge. Ferry Landing located two miles downstream close to Standing Bear Bridge.

This is part of the Missouri National Recreational River, a portion of the Missouri that has not been dredged and straightened for barge traffic, and which still resembles the wild river that Native Americans and explorers like Lewis and Clark would have known.
