Hi, I’m Rich! I was born in Nebraska and have spent the majority of my life here. I love getting out on the river, rain or shine and getting to experience the beautiful place I’m lucky to call home. After being involved in my parents rental business on the Niobrara, I broke away in 1992 and bought Little Outlaw which I now manage with my wife, Marla. At first, we rented out about 25 canoes and 40 tubes. After a lot of hard work and dedication, we now offer a variety of trips in canoes, kayaks, and tubes, to ensure that you enjoy your trip on the Niobrara River. As the proud owner of Little Outlaw, I can help everyone experience this incredible river, whether you want to float down the river on a giant tube or paddle your way down in a canoe or kayak!

We are passionate about the Niobrara River and we are actively involved in projects to conserve this incredible spot. We also participate in a bi-annual clean-up of the river in order to maintain its natural beauty.   I have been appointed by the governor, and currently serve as the outfitter representative to the Niobrara Council, a state agency designed to help co-manage with the National Park Service, the scenic Niobrara River.  I also serve on the local Cherry County Tourism and Promotion board.

We want you to love the Niobrara River as much as we do. With 38+ years of experience we know how to make your trip memorable. So, what are you waiting for? Book a trip with us! We look forward to seeing you soon.
