The floating picnic experience
We introduced our Stock Tank float trips to the Scenic Niobrara River over 10 years ago, and they have become quite popular. Our Stock Tank float trip will start at Berry Bridge and will float about 2 hours to the Smith Falls waterfall, which is a huge attraction in our area. After a brief stop at the waterfall you will continue for about 2 more hours to your final destination at Brewer Bridge. The tanks we use are either 7′ or 9′ round and have a picnic table for your seating. These tanks will hold at 4- 6 adult sized people very comfortable, and we do have a 4 person minimum.
We will have the tank trips available daily June thru August and by reservation at other times. The tank trips must be reserved in advance, as we have limited availability.

This is very unique way to float the Niobrara River in itself. The scenery is amazing on this popular stretch of the Niobrara River. Be sure to stop your tank for a brief visit to the Smith Falls waterfall along the way.
To guarantee a good time, come prepared. Sunscreen, insect repellent, and sunglasses with a floating eyeglass holder are always a great idea. Shoes suitable for wading (not flip flops) are recommended. You may even consider a jacket if the forecast is for rain or cooler temps.
Remember: Someone will have to get wet to land the tanks at your finish site.
