Niobrara State Park
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.
The park offers guided horseback rides, playground equipment and a swimming pool, and hosts seasonal bison stew cookouts. 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.
