Cabins, camping from RVs to tents, picnicking, swimming pool, buffalo cookouts, boat ramps nearby, horseback trail rides, hiking, fishing, history or communing with Mother Nature are all available at this exceptional state park. Attractions Niobrara State Park offers a modern swimming pool; horseback trail rides led by wranglers; fishing in the nearby rivers; hiking the 14 miles of trail; bird watching and other nature study, or just a chance to loll in the shade away from the hectic pace of day-to-day living. Saturday evenings, Memorial Day through Labor Day, Niobrara State Park hosts a Buffalo Cookout. Adjacent to the park is Bazile Creek Wildlife Management Area, which provides additional opportunity of wildlife viewing, fishing, boating and hunting in season. Visitors may want to check out the site of the mosasaurus palentological find, an important one, since it was the first complete fossil of its kind found in Nebraska. Other areas of interest are the Ponca Cemetery, Mormon Monument, and the Ponca Agency and Standing Bear monument, as well as other local historical attractions. Ask for directions at the Park Office. The City of Niobrara offers a modern 9-hole, grass-greens golf course.
