We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Niobrara State Park. We stayed in the modern RV park, but there was plenty of tent camping spots throughout the park. The hosts of the camp were very friendly and loved to talk about the area. The campgrounds where very clean and the RV pads were asphalt and fairly level. Each camping spot had a table and fire pit with a grill with plenty of lawn to enjoy. I loved the fact that there was very little for lighting at night because the sky was lit up with stars, but I made the terrible mistake of forgetting my telescope! Great place for stargazing! I could see it as an issue because it was pitch black outside at night for some people. The spots are electric only with access to water points that were locked, which you had to call staff to unlock for you to receive water. We had the misfortune of having the dump station septic system overflow on us... rather disgusting but the office had it pumped and cleaned up within a couple of hours. They were very nice about it. There is plenty to do in the area. We were very surprised to find such a gorgeous place in Nebraska with wildlife around you. We saw deer, turkeys, lots of bird, butterflies, and dragonflies. The trails were well maintained and easy to hike with lots of options as to where you wanted to go. They have a nice looking swimming pool on a hill over looking the river(which was closed for the winter) and lots of scenic views. We ventured out and saw Ashfalls Fossil Bed about 40 minutes away. It is well worth the visit seeing over 30 full skeleton rhinos and some three-toed deer. We found it an amazing stop. That day we ate at Green Gables about 3 miles south of Ashfalls Fossil Bed, which was really good.
