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.

Great park. Ample space, excellent showers and cleanliness. Access to bathrooms are very good. Maintenance of this park is excellent. <5% un-shadded sites. Can you make the fish more accomodating??

We have been to Lewis and Clark Rec area every year for the past 12 years, and we love the park. This year, 2 things caught my eye. First, in years past, the mowing and trimming were fantastic. This year, we had to ask 2 days in a row to have mowing done, and there was growth around almost all the trees, that isn't normally there. Second, the restroom (Y2) had a horrible sewer smell. While they did come and do some maintenance (charcoal filter), within our week visit, it started to smell again. I understand that sewer issues happen, and the restrooms were clean, so while it stunk, I can accept that, but this is the worst we have ever seen the weed and sapling growth around all the trees. We love the park, but wanted you to know that we did notice the change in maintenance of trees and lawn. One more note. We really enjoyed the GFP free activities, such as archery for beginners (the instructor was AWESOME) and ZooMobile. We have also really enjoyed learning to canoe in years past.

We absolutely love this park! It will hopefully be an annual destination for us. All the sites are roomy and as private as one can get camping. Well groomed park with friendly staff. We travel from the Cities but it's worth it.
