Northwest Nebraska (Dawes & Sioux Counties) sits on the northern edge of the Nebraska Panhandle. The combination of the topography of the Pine Ridge and the hundreds of thousands of acres of public land make Northwest Nebraska an outdoor playground. No matter where you interests lie, you can do it here. We have unparalleled opportunities to hunt and fish, hike, bike, and camp.

In addition to outdoor rec opportunities, there is rich history in this part of the country. From fossils to early fur traders to the cavalry and buffalo soldiers, the story of the west flows through this region. If you’re interested in history, check out our museums and consider staying in the old barracks at Fort Robinson.

No matter what you’re after, if you want to get off of the beaten path and discover something new, Northwest Nebraska is your destination.

LODGING

We offer a variety of lodging options from traditional hotels and motels to bed and breakfasts and campgrounds. If you're feeling really adventurous, plan for a sheep wagon sleepover.
