Niobrara State Park is a public recreation area located at the confluence of the Missouri and Niobrara rivers in the northeast corner of Nebraska. The state park occupies river bluffs to the west of the village of Niobrara and the Niobrara River. The park includes the Niobrara River Bridge, a decommissioned railroad bridge listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A variety of animals, notably white-tailed deer and wild turkeys, roam the park by day, while at night, coyotes and whip-poor-wills mingle their cries and calls. The park is managed by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.Add Niobrara State Park and other attractions to your Niobrara trip itinerary using our Niobrara trip itinerary builder website.

Great cabins, but when we checked in late the park supervisor was a little aggressive in collecting the money for the park fee.
