Description

Lewis and Clark Lake, near Yankton, is one of the state park system's most popular resort parks. Campgrounds along the shore of this modern recreation area draw visitors from throughout the Midwest. Modern resort facilities - from marinas to camping cabins to sandy beaches - attract water lovers to the Lewis and Clark Recreation Area.

Planning for your stay at Lewis and Clark Recreation Area takes just a few minutes when you use the online reservation system. It's secure and ready when you are. All sites are electrical, with an upgrade to a prime waterfront site available. Equestrians may opt for the Horse Trail Campground. Cozy one-room, log-style cabins are open year-round. Accommodations for four people include a set of bunk beds, double bed, table, benches, air conditioning/heating and electricity.

Lewis and Clark Recreation Area has all the amenities to enjoy the lake: beach, boat ramp, fishing dock and ski beach. South Dakota's largest marina is located on the grounds of the park. Lewis and Clark Resort & Marina is privately operated and features nearly 400 boat slips. The resort opened in 2012 with cabins and motel rooms encircling a sparking outdoor pool. For trips outside the park, nearby attractions include the Gavins Point National Fish Hatchery and Aquarium and the Lewis and Clark Visitor Center adjacent to Gavins Point Dam.

The cabins are great for camping. Everything you need is there. Just bring your food, charcoal and wood for a fire and you are set.

Each spring and fall my sisters my self and some of our children meet and camp at the Lewis and Clark Recreation Area. We just enjoy visiting playing games and sitting around the camp fire. Some of us are learning Dutch oven cooking and others are great at grilling so the food is ultra tasty. It is such a nice clean campground and the park Rangers and other staff are so friendly and helpful. Weather your camping by yourself or meeting your family from the tri state area I highly recommend this campground and park facility.

Park and campsites were very clean. Cabins could be a bit larger but worked out well. Did not like the wood we had to buy - expensive and did not burn well.
