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.

CAN'T RETIRE YET
100 % of users found this review helpful
This was our last chance to go camping this year and I'm not upset, because I'm already planning for next springs camping trips. 2017 will be just one more year closer to retirement and then we can go camping whenever we like. I'm sure that there will be children's and grandchildren's things to attend, but the time we can spend together sitting around the campfire is one of our favorite times. Just waiting till we can retire, but not yet.

When we set up we realized we did not have electricity and were running on batteries. Called the check in center and they had a park maintenance person come and look at the problem. They ended up changing out the 35 amp plug on the post. Was impressed by the service we received.

Great fall getaway

Lewis and Clark SP had great sunrise and sunsets on this week long fall visit. It was great fall weather for hiking and walking. Did a little fishing - without any luck, but it's about the company you keep.

Returned to Gavins Pont for a quick end of season camp with my boys. Late in season so not many others camping, which was fine. Forget how great the entire area is, above and below the dam, really a gem right here in SD. Will be back, hopefully won't wait as long as last time to return.
