General Information

Description - Two stretches of the Missouri River are protected here. The portion originally set aside, from Gavins Point Dam near Yankton, South Dakota, to Ponca, Nebraska, still exhibits the river's dynamic character in its islands, bars, chutes, and snags; it was authorized in 1978. The second portion includes the land located adjacent to the free-flowing segment between Lewis and Clark Lake and Lake Francis Case. This section was authorized in 1991 and represents one of the best natural landscapes associated with the river along its entire course. Native floodplain forest, tallgrass and mixed grass prairies, and the river provide habitats for several endangered bird and fish species. Recreational activities include fishing, hunting, and boating. The park also includes the lower 20 miles of the Niobrara River and 6 miles of Verdigre Creek. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District, manages the river through a cooperative agreement with the National Park Service.
