Narrows River Park

Narrows River Park provides boat access to the mighty Missouri River, just off I-29 in Council Bluffs.

Attention

Use caution when using the Narrows boat ramp. Due to continuing drought conditions river levels are well below average. Use your best judgment when launching from Narrows. The ramp was poured to the water line when the Omaha water gauge measured 10' and is approximately 105' in length. At this time the ramp remains open but if conditions become unsafe we will post here, our Facebook, and at the pay station near the park entrance. Using the upriver side of the ramp will gain you more depth.
