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.

our honeymoon

nothing great about this place but nothing over the top bad. The girl at the counter in the visitors center was a little rude at first. We went down for our honeymoon and after driving for almost 5 hours all we really wanted was to get out of the car. We basically had to twist her arm into letting us just go park next to the cabin so we could go sit at the beach. Very Frustrating! After checking in all the other front desk help was very friendly!

My family had a great time at the Gavin's Point section of the Lewis & Clark Recreation Area. Although it rained off & on all weekend, the kids had fun with boating and playing disc golf. We even saw a deer close to our campsite.

We love Lewis and Clark to camp at. The camp sites are spacious. It is always clean. The bike baths are great! There are great hiking paths. The beaches are nice and clean. People are friendly. It is our very favorite place to camp. The river is so pretty. We rent a boat when we go down. We camp 2-5 times a year down there now
