In the northwest corner of Nebraska in the UNITED STATES of AMERICA lies the 95,000-acre Oglala National Grassland, known for its vast grassland areas, camping, hunting opportunities, and Toadstool Geologic Park. Located in northeastern Sioux County, Toadstool Park sits in the Oglala Natl. Grassland’s southeastern area and is known for rock outcroppings and eroded formations shaped like toadstools. It is near State Road 2 and 71, a highway concurrency in northwestern Nebraska.

Another interesting natural site in Sioux County, Nebraska is the Agate Fossil Beds Natl. Monument, east of the town of Agate and situated along the Niobrara River.
