The Missouri River is the longest river in the United States. It flows roughly 2,320 miles from its headwaters in Montana to its convergence with the Mississippi River at St. Louis, Missouri. In Nebraska, more people live within an hour drive of the Missouri River, which flows for approximately 400 miles along the state’s eastern border, than any other river (or lake) in the state. The Missouri River and lands open to public access on its banks offer excellent fishing, hunting, boating, canoeing, kayaking and many other activities.
This guide shows public access sites for fishing, hunting, boating, camping and more on the Missouri River. It also serves as a navigation guide. With approximately 160 sites on both sides of the river, the Missouri River provides many excellent destinations for time spent outdoors.
