    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.

    Must stay!

    Amazing park. We had a corner spot right on the lake. Very large site. Close to 2 bathrooms that were clean and stocked. Kids loved the playground and large open area to run around. Only got 1 quick hot shower, the other 3 were barely Luke warm! Walking/bike path lakeside was great, fun climbing trees for the kids, small beach area, etc. Short drive across the dam and beautiful spillway that's fun to watch for a few. We will most definitely return

    Off Season is Great

    Gavin's Point was the only campground open. We were literally the only campers there. It was quiet and refreshing. This is the most beautiful East River campground and second in the state only to Custer State Park, IMO. While everything was closed (including restrooms/showers) the stay was still delightful. Lots of well maintained walk/bike paths along the river. Great place to get away for a few days, even in the offseason. Summer provides lots of recreation opportunities, but it's hard to get a spot. don't miss this one. We'll be back whenever we can. Facilities were only rated C because they were unavailable. If there had been an N/A choice, we would have selected it.
