Dismal River Paddling - Canoe & Kayak

Canoe and Kayak the Dismal River.  It's Fun!

Experienced canoers and kayakers can test their skills on the Dismal River south of Mullen. The Dismal is a fast-flowing, spring-fed river with plenty of twists and sunken debris that make it a natural obstacle course. Along the trip, canoers and kayakers are treated to a swim in a large spring from which water and sand upswell from the aquifer below. 

Both the Middle Loup and Dismal Rivers have campsites and eventually flow along the north and south sides of the Nebraska National Forest toward Dunning, where they converge into the Loup River.
