About this place

Situated on the picturesque Missouri River bluffs in northeastern Nebraska, Ponca State Park is a popular destination for nature lovers and those looking for robust recreational offerings. Campers at Ponca can hike, swim, canoe, kayak, fish, horseback ride, golf and partake in many naturalist-led activities. Bird watching is a popular pastime at Ponca, and the National Audubon Society has listed this park as one of the most important bird-watching areas in the United States.

There are 22 miles of multi-use trails to explore in this expansive park and a tri-state overlook offers a picturesque vista of the Missouri River and views of three states: Nebraska, South Dakota, and Iowa. Those looking to perfect their chip shot can book a tee time at the Highland Oaks, a challenging 9-hole public golf course on the southern boundary of the park. Riflery and archery are also options at the Eric Wiebe Shooting Complex. There are two boat ramps at Ponca as well as a canoe/kayak launch.

The Missouri River has great fishing and anglers commonly catch catfish, sauger, walleye, drum, and other river species. The park also offers youth fishing programs and a fishing tackle loaner program.

Noteworthy events at Ponca include the annual Missouri River Outdoor Expo in mid-September with over 80 activities and October Hallowfest celebration with haunted hayrack rides, pumpkin roll contests, and other family-friendly entertainment.

River Vista J is located in the northern section of the park approximately 5.9 miles from the park entrance. This partially shaded campsite is a short hike in and has vistas of the Missouri River and is situated near a kayak launch. You will be traveling over unpaved surfaces to reach the site so good tires and AWD/4WD is recommended. The site features a spacious 10 x 12 platform tent with a queen bed as well as a pop-up tent that can accommodate 4 additional campers. A picnic table, firepit, and two Adirondack chairs are also included. There is a Loo (camping potty) at your campsite for convenience. Campers will also be able to access the nearby park bathroom with flushable toilets and sinks.

The Space:
