Niobrara, Nebraska
Niobrara State Park Campground

The last time that we took a trip to the Ohiya Casino for lunch, we took the time to travel through the town of Niobrara, and went to check out the Niobrara State Park. Niobrara's population is 406.

Welcome to Niobrara

I kept waiting to get a good picture of the downtown area, but it didn't happen. You have to turn off of the state highway to see the business district.

Business District that way!

We kept heading west till we started seeing signs for the campground. Once we pulled in, some park rangers wanted to know if we had a park license, which of course we didn't. We asked if we could take a drive through, and they said no. We asked if they had a beach, and they said they have a swimming pool.

We got a couple of pictures of the state park anyway as we were leaving.
