Stayed at the campgrounds while fishing the Missouri River from the nearby Verdel Landing. Showed up on a Sunday afternoon ... dumpsters were full from the weekend. 3 days later they had still not been emptied. Restrooms/showers were adequate, could use a lot of just routine maintenance (door latches, clothing hooks, brighter light bulbs!) Camphosts did keep them well supplied... More

We stayed here on the advice of friends. The view is stunning and the staff we encountered were great. However, the cabin was full of flies!!! It says there is a kitchen (and there is), but no baking sheet and limited pans. not really set up well for much in the way of cooking. The beds were comfortable, but the... More

Really a nice surprise. We weren't planning on stopping here, actually didn't know anything about it, but were really glad we did. The visitor's center staff was very friendly and there are lots of exhibits to look at to learn about the area. It's more of a driving tour with a few stops. We went to Fort Falls and hiked... More

From the high point of the park the view of the Missouri River is spectacular. We have not stayed in the cabins, but they are quite attractive and afford great scenery. The campground is neat and inviting. Would be a great place for a family reunion.

After you visit Fort Niobrara Wilderness Refuge, head down the road to Smith Falls State Park. Stop in the Visitor Center to register and pay your admission, and then take the stairs down to the river. There are picnic tables right along the river so be sure and take yours along so you can feast as you watch the floaters... More

One of my favorite places to visit. It is absolutely tranquil in this park. Horseback riding, pool, fishing, trails and a lifetime of outdoor adventures. This could be a family vacation or a romantic getaway. The scenic views are so amazing that you will wonder if you are still in Nebraska.

Arranged a mini-vacation with my grade school aged nieces on short notice. We stayed in one of the two-bedroom cabins with full kitchen and bath. There was a two night minimum stay requirement. It was nice to know the bedding, towels, pans, and dishes would all be provided. I even precooked parts of the meals at home and used the... More

We absolutely loved this park! It sits on the bluffs overlooking the confluence of the Niobrara and Missouri rivers. The views are spectacular! Very interesting flora and fauna - evergreen forests, prairie, wet lands, river; incredible varieties of birds including many wild turkeys. Good hiking or you can drive around to various overlooks. There is also a nice pool for... More
