5.5 Hour Niobrara River Tubing Trip
Join us on one of our tubing trips along a beautiful stretch of the Niobrara River. You'll have the day to relax on a giant tube, floating down the slow flowing Niobrara river. You'll pass the Smith Falls waterfall, the tallest waterfall in Nebraska as well as other areas of outstanding natural beauty.
What to Expect
Enjoy a wonderful day effortlessly gliding down the river on an inflatable tube. Your tubes will be hooked up to the other people in your group so you don’t need to worry about drifting apart! On this trip you’ll have the chance to see the impressive Smith Falls waterfall, Nebraska’s highest waterfall. Take this opportunity to enjoy the amazing scenery surrounding Nebraska’s scenic Niobrara River.
Nature & Wildlife
Relax as the spring-fed, slow moving river gently carries you past the pine covered hills, steep cliff banks and waterfalls. The Niobrara River and its surroundings are home to a range of wildlife, including turkey, deer, rocky mountain elk, mink, otters and whole host of birds. Keep your eyes out for herons, bald eagles and other species along your trip!
Convenient Shuttle Options
Most of our customers use our shuttle service as it is both convenient and reasonable. We have two main shuttle options for our tubing trips:
Staying close to the Niobrara? We can meet you at the Little Outlaw Office and instruct you to Penbrook Landing. There, you will leave your car and we will shuttle you up to Berry Bridge, your launch point. You then float at your own leisure back to your own vehicle.
Visiting Valentine? For groups of 8+ we can shuttle you from your hotel/motel in Valentine and drop you to Berry Bridge where you’ll begin your trip. Once you’ve finished tubing, we will meet you and take you back to your accommodation. Please call to book our shuttle service!
Good to Know
- Each member of your group will be required to sign a waiver before embarking on your tubing trip. Parents are asked to sign these on behalf of their children under 18.
- Our tubes comfortably fit one adult however children under 10 years old are welcome to share a tube with an adult for an additional cost.
- If two children want to share, one will pay full price and the other will pay the extra rider fee.
- Up to ten tubes can be tied together in a group.

We took our 3rd annual Niobrara trip and used Little Outlaw, again! We had 18 people with us and they split us into groups of 9. We were able to stay together so it was nice that they launched is all together! We did the 5.5 hour trip with a ride back to Berry Bridge Campground. Everyone is nice and patient so I highly recommend using them!

Little Outlaw Outfitters were superb' everything we needed for our float they handled. We used the shuttle service and the gentleman that was driving was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the river. We will use little Outlaw again.
We've been going through these guys every summer for the past seven years for tubes, and their service is fantastic.

We went on a girls trip. Tour operators were friendly and on time. The equipment was nice. We had a blast and plan on rerunning next year.
