Location of Niobrara State Park in Nebraska

Niobrara State Park is a state park of Nebraska, USA, located on the bluffs at the confluence of the Missouri and Niobrara rivers. The park is on the outskirts of the village of Niobrara in northeastern Nebraska. The state park has 1,640 acres (660 ha) of land and 7 acres (2.8 ha) of water.

A variety of animals, most notably the white-tailed deer, roam about the park. At night, one can hear the call of the whippoorwill as it mingles around the howl of the coyote.

There is an area set aside for RV camping and RV hookups and several cabins that overlook the river. Modern facilities have been added to include a swimming pool and an interpretive center. Visitors can tour the park via 7 miles (11 km) of roads and on 14 miles (23 km) of hiking trails.
