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 camping!

My wife and dog came up on Friday afternoon and setup our camp. The one downside we had was where our camp was, we were surrounded by trees and could not get a breeze into our tent. On Monday, we moved to a different site that was closer to the water and had a nice cool breeze through our tent. All in all, 5 out of 5 stars from us!

Our site was right on the river in the West Midway section (53E). This is great spot because there are no sites between you and the river, though there is a public beach and parking between this section and the sites, which, even on a busy Sunday afternoon, was not problematic for us. It was beautiful, spacious, and level -- we never felt crowded by other campers. The cottonwood trees all around provided ample shade. A nearby playground and swimming beach kept the kids busy. The bathrooms were spacious and very clean, with wonderfully hot water. A trip to the Gavins Point Dam was enjoyed by all. I highly recommend this campground.

Me and my two sons took a 2 day camping trip spur of the moment. It was easy to reserve a spot, It was peaceful, clean, and great weather and we didn't want to leave after the two days. I absolutely recommend getting a spot on the water side. waking up to the beautiful view of the water and cliffs across the way, was the best.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. This was probably the hotest weekend that we could have chosen but it ended up quite nice thanks to air conditioning. BUT - you went above and beyond. On our way out of the campgrounds, we stopped back at the visitor center and i left my purse on the counter. We were halfway home and this was discovered. I called your office and was given the pleasant comment that you would ship my purse to me without charge. I received my purse the next day and was thrilled with your service. Who else would have done that. Thank you, thank you. We will definitely be back. Your rangers were very helpful throughout the long weekend, the facilities were nice and the guests were nice too. Again, thank you.
