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.

Mosquitoes

The campsites are roomy and well kept up. The comfort stations are clean and in good working order. Other SD parks spray for mosquitoes and it really makes a difference. Lewis & Clark has chosen not to spray and this exposes family and children to all sorts of chemicals and danger from bites.

Just Passing Through

We made a reservation for just one night on our way from STL to the Mt. Rushmore. I wish we could have stayed longer. The signage and road system was very well designed. The staff was especially friendly and helpful. The bath house was especially clean. The grounds were very well maintained. We encountered a problem with a lock on our camper and the staff courteously directed us to a local locksmith who provided a speedy and efficient service that allowed us to continue worry free on our vacation. There was so much more that we wanted to experience, but did not have the time on this trip. We hope to return some day soon.

Great Stay!

We had a wonderful time staying at Gavins. We stayed in a prime site and the view was beautiful. We have a 40 ft. fifth wheel and the pad was plenty long for it. We loved the walking/biking trail. We will return next summer for a longer stay.
