    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.

    Lewis & Clark Rocks

    I believe this wraps up our 23rd year of camping at Lewis & Clark. We raised our kids on those trails and on the lake. Best camping around. Looking forward to the next 23 years.

    Great Park

    We had a lake front campsite. The lake is big and beautiful. The campsite was clean and well maintained. The office staff was very helpful and informative. It was a great experience, and would love to return and camp there again.

    Campsite 217

    The fall weather was gorgeous so we were excited to finally get a spot by the water. Beware, campsite 217 has high and low spots on it. Our auto-leveling 5th wheel struggled the entire weekend. We will be back to Yankton to camp, however, we didn't enjoy the weekend like we wanted to.

    Quick weekend away

    We booked this campground on a wim and almost at the last minute(1.5 weeks before travel) we went the 3rd weekend in october(15-19, 2020) the weather was colder around the mid to low 50s and around 30s at night, the only bad part was how strong the wind was. We did have a pop-up camper but if we were in a tent it would of been cold. We have already started planning our next trip, we were in site 124(see the water from our site??. The staff were great and very knowledgeable. My only bad review on this great campground is the other drivers who would not obey the speed limit(10 mph) I wouldn't even care if they went 20 but 25-30 with kids around is not ok this is not a normal public road its a campground road. The campground was pretty empty for the weekend we were there so I am not sure on noise if it was full. Great location, great paved bike travel, hiking the bluffs, close to the water and the boat launch.
