For those who like hunting, Niobrara is home to Swanson Hunting Acres the largest controlled hunting area in Nebraska . There is also plenty of fishing on the 530f miles that make up the Niobrara River, which is home to more than 230 waterfalls and approximately 160 different plant and animal species.
The nearby Niobrara State Park is one of the most popular destinations for Nebraska campers. The park boasts horseback riding, 14 miles of hiking trails, boating, and areas for fishing and swimming.
