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.

Camp Relaxing

WE camp almost every weekend from April to November, with out a doubt, we enjoy your Southeast South Dakota Parks the best. We can't say enough about the staff and security on duty when we stay at Lewis and Clark and Chief White Crane. They are all the best. We hesitate to recommend your campgrounds to others, knowing that would only spread our secret to others whom would only make an already busy campgrounds even busier. :-))

This park is great: beautiful scenery, large water body, variety of watercraft to watch, paved walking trails, well-spaced and placed camping pads with good shade at most sites, many activities to do in the area.

Mosquitoes
67 % of users found this review helpful
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.
