Description

Fishing and water recreation draws a quiet crowd to Platte Creek Recreation Area to enjoy Lake Francis Case on the Missouri River. Visitors enjoy natural features similar to those at Snake Creek Recreation Area, but from a quieter campground with similar amenities.

Plan a relaxing vacation at Platte Creek Recreation Area that lets you get away from it all. Select either a campsite with or without electricity and make your reservation using the online system. It's fast, easy and secure. Features at the park to make your stay more pleasant include a boat ramp, comfort station with flush toilets and showers, dump station and fish-cleaning station.

The earliest maps refer to the stream at Platte Creek Recreation Area as Fish Creek. After the 1880s, the creek was renamed to honor Bernard Pratte, who operated a fur post near the mouth of the creek. A spelling error forever changed the name to Platte Creek. It was in this area, also, that Lewis and Clark were told to watch for the "burning bluffs."

We visit Platte Creek every summer to camp and fish for 4 days leading up to a fishing tournament. We enjoy the peacefulness and tranquility of the area. This campground is mainly meant for people who like to fish all day on the river and relax by a campfire to end their day. The only bad thing I could say is we were unable to control water temp in the showers.
