Sharp-tailed grouse viewing at Niobrara State Park

Experience the natural wonder of the sharp-tailed grouse mating dance from a new viewing blind at Niobrara State Park! Reserve the viewing blind (free of charge) any time between March 1 and May 1, with peak being between March 15 and April 15, for the best opportunity to see this sunrise ritual, an ancient and glorious display from one of Nebraska’s most famous grassland birds.

The blind holds up to 12 guests. Reserve a spot by calling the park office at 402-857-3373.

Discounted overnight stays

Make an early arrival easy by staying at one of the park’s fully-equipped cabins or electric campsites. Use promo code “SHARPTAIL24” on our reservation system – for discounted weekend rates (weekdays during the off-season already include discounted rates).
