6 Lazy Rivers In Nebraska That Are Perfect For Tubing On A Summer’s Day

Can you really call yourself a true Nebraskan if you’ve never spent a day on an inner tube floating down a river? It’s practically a requirement for living in the Cornhusker State. People in other states might head to water parks to experience the relaxation of a lazy river, but here in Nebraska we know the real fun is on our natural “lazy” rivers.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

There are even more “river trails” to explore in Nebraska. Take a look at the Nebraska Game and Parks page on water trails for more information about our lovely rivers and the adventures just waiting for you.

It’s important to note that almost all of the land along the banks of these rivers is privately owned. Landowners are typically friendly to floaters if you make arrangements well in advance and are respectful of their property. But the easiest way to handle arrangements is to simply book with an outfitter who will take care of all of the details.
