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.

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.

we visit lewis & clark a couple times a year. we spend a week in the summer with extended family and then go just with our own family in the fall. camping at lewis & clark is as nice as camping in your backyard! the grounds are kept up and it always so nice and grassy. nothing is worse then coming out of your camper and stepping into dirt! that is never a problem at lewis & clark! the scenery is amazing and the campsites are adequately spaced apart with lots of trees for shade. the bathrooms are the cleanest I've ever seen! our favorite part besides the boating is the bike trails. we love visiting the marina, & also love to eat there! the gavins trail is amazing in the fall! we love that the campground is so close to yankton but you feel like you are "away from it all" but if you forget something yankton isn't too far away and has it all! we love to visit Tasty Treats in yankton. lewis & clark has so many beaches that you never feel crowded. the beaches are clean and the water is clean!there is so much to do at lewis & clark that it is hard to fit it all in, so we always have to come back a couple times a year!

The Lewis and Clark Campground continues to be the best campground we have stayed at. We are disappointed that the privacy hedges in front of the prime sites were removed in the Gavin's Point section. Hope you replace them.
