TANKING & TUBING
What is river tanking? We simply take plastic water or feeding tanks used for livestock, add some seating, then float you down the river! The Calamus River is great for tanking and tubing as it has a relatively slow current and is shallow enough that all ages can enjoy the experience. Surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Nebraska Sandhills, you are sure to have a relaxing time.
Calamus Outfitters offers two or four-hour trips. We provide life jackets, push pole and drop-off or pick-up transportation. NOTE: When tanking, someone in your party may need to get out of the tank and guide the tank to the left side of the river to the landing and help get your party safely out of the river.

The Story Behind This House In Nebraska Is Incredibly Unique
When Nebraska pioneers began putting down roots in the area, they found a dearth of materials with which to work. The largely treeless prairie didn’t provide the wood needed to build traditional frame buildings, so the settlers had to get creative with their building materials. For many, that meant using plows to cut up long strips of sod and slicing them into brick-shaped pieces, then using those earthen bricks to build their homes. Most of the original soddies in Nebraska have since been reclaimed by the earth, but this one is still standing strong.
The Ord Golf Club has been an attraction since 1915. Their 9-hole course is fit for all levels of golfers from beginner to advanced. If you want to experience some of the best golfing in the state of Montana, look no further.
