These folks were the outfitters we used for equipment and shuttle to explore the Niobrara. They were very helpful and personable to work with, and there was even a Labrador that rode with us to the access point.

I'm not sure what the other outfitters are like. This one, well they were 30 minutes picking us up, tried to put too many people and supplies in a van, van needed to be retired and some life preservers were ripped and missing straps.

We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel which was excellent. Bus driver was super nice as were the guys who got us on and off the river. Tubes were in good shape. Since the Niobrara is so shallow they are tubes you...More

Called in the late morning and they were able to quickly set up a tubing rental. Picked us up and brought us to the starting point. Then we floated back to where our van was parked. A great afternoon.
