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.

We stayed here for two weeks in our RV and thoroughly enjoyed the park and Yankton. So much to do and so much to explore. Brought our boat and had a great time on the lake. Other boaters courteous and friendly. This was our second time this summer and plan to be back next year. Thank you for a great time!

We especially loved the bike trails. Even did some beach hopping biking from one beach to the next. Gavin's Point Beach and the Lake Yankton Beach were our favorites. A bonus for our whole family was being able to kayak and paddle board on Friday morning with the Park Rangers for free!
