River Outfitting & River Trips

Buffalo Bill loves to get out on the water. Doesn’t matter if it’s an unsinkable cattle tank or a kayak made from the rare fiberglass trees of the Nebraska Sandhills; if it floats, he’s in it. Find the perfect place for your water recreation right here in North Platte.

For folks who have their own water vessels just hop in the North Platte River for some fun on the water.

If you don’t have your own, give Dusty Trails a call and they’ll set you up. Dusty Trails gets Buffalo Bill’s coveted Buffalo of Approval for being a genius. It takes a genius to realize that the prefect vessel for a lazy river float is an empty cattle tank. It’s not totally empty; it’ll get filled with chairs, benches, coolers, and friends for a great day on the river. So if you’re looking for a unique way to have some fun on the water you need to call Dusty Trails.

The fun isn’t limited to tanking! Dusty Trails is North Platte’s premier river outfitter offering a variety of excursions in tubes, canoes, kayaks, as well as tanks. Floats down the North Platte River can last anywhere from 2 hours to all day depending on how long you want it to last. Because the tanks are pretty much untippable and unsinkable they’re an ideal way for groups of all ages to get down the river safely. For larger groups, why not plan on a variety of vessels?

Put in points on the river include the North River WMA north of Hershey for people looking for a longer float (up to 6 hours) as well as Buffalo Bill Ranch and Cody Park in North Platte. Take out points are at Buffalo Bill Ranch, Cody Park, and Highway 30.


If we’re being honest the only difference between a park and a dog park is a leash.
