We had never camped at Niobrara State Park and spent four nights there over Memorial weekend and really enjoyed it. It is a big park with a lot of hills and great views with a nice campsite at the bottom of it. We had some friends camping there and also met several new people.

This winter was great for viewing Bald Eagles along the Platte River. There were times I counted over 50 of them in a single area.
