"Easy access to the Niobrara River" Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge by Toughluck

Valley of the Niobrara River

Set into the open plains of northwestern Nebraska, the Niobrara River is a valley of lush growth. Because water is so important to life, the north shore and the south shore support different species. The north is exposed to more sunshine each day throughout the year, thus, while the river water is available, it is a slightly drier climate, supporting pines. The south shore, shaded by the bluffs and hills of the valley, has more surface water and is dominated by burr oaks. Small for oak trees, but harder and more water needing than the pine on the north shore.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Paradise Valley
  • Cons:You really have to get out of the car and canoe the water way.
