We are book again for another weekend in the Oak Cabin for kayaking and tubing. Niobrara River Ranch is a great place to stay. We have stayed in every cabin at least once except Walnut and this will be our third time in Oak and we have camped at Allen Bridge so this has to be at least our ninth... More

My husband and I stayed in Love, Nebraska on our way to Yellowstone. We had a great time and kayaked down the Niobrara River. It was awesome and we got to see deer along the river as we kayaked by. I highly recommend if you are going through Love, Nebraska.

We have a large group of women stay with Lee, "the fiesty cowboy" as we like to call him, at his NRR cabins every year. We have had as few as 5 and up to 17 one year. 6 years now to be exact and we will NEVER go with any one else! We have stayed in 4 different cabins... More

My family and I just spend a wonderful three days at the Niobrara River Ranch. Lee, the owner, was more than accommodating and pleasant. We stayed in the Oak log cabin which was exceptionally clean and very nice with a great view. Tubing was a lot of fun however, we would recommend the four hour which will take at least... More

This was my husband and my's first visit. However the party of 13 have been making this trip 8 years now. Our cabin was beautiful. When I walked in the cabin, I could smell "clean". Great first impression! Our float trip was flawless. They help you load all of your coolers ( we had 5 or 6). One of our... More

(This review has nothing to do with the Niobrara River Ranch - just tubing the river itself.) We tubed down the Niobrara River at Valentine, NE, for the first time ever. It was amazing. We used Brewer's Canoers and Tubers in Valentine to rent the tubes.(Very friendly people - I would recommend them as your outfitter) We chose the 6-hour... More

The owner, LEE is a joke. My friend and I were tenting down by the river while my family was renting his biggest cabin....one day we get back from tubing/kayaking and noticed my friends brand new bike is gone. Long story short, Lee...the owner, took it thinking we were squatters not paying and he took the bike for collateral. We... More

My wife and I did the tube float down the Niobrara on 9-14-13. It is an excellent time as the rest of the entire state is watching or listening to football and we were the only people on the lower portion of the river. Great scenery and a very enjoyable time.

I would like to start this review off by saying so many of these other reviews, are wrong. I stayed in a cabin at the Niobrara River Ranch and never once encountered a “wolverine”. The first thing I’d like to address is the knocks on the cleanliness of the cabins. It’s a CABIN for cryin out loud, I don’t know... More
