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.

This is the most beautiful state park campground I've stayed at. Lots of trees and we saw several deer roaming the park. Sites were long and wide, so you are not right on top of each other. We will be back, but will make reservations far enough out.

Out of state
0 % of users found this review helpful
We love Lewis and Clark but find it frustrating that we can't get the Prime sites unless we plan months ahead. Also we don't understand the additional fee for those of us who are out of state.

Big Campground Opportunity with Small campground feel
0 % of users found this review helpful
For being such a large campground with many opportunities the sectioned areas for camping provide a smaller campground feeling. The campsite spaces are large and there is plenty of green space for activities. All beaches and bike path areas were well groomed. The only negative I would have is the quality of fishing. We will definitely be back soon.
