    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.

    We will return, again and again

    In a nutshell, the perfect campground. Beautiful campsites and cabins along the Missouri River, along with many away from the river. Playground areas sprinkled through the campground, along with pavilions, a marina/restaurant complex with aquatic rentals. Million dollar view of sunrise. Close to Yankton. Amazing bike trail system. Best. Campground. Ever

    Y3 bathhouse needs a makeover ...yikes

    We have come to L&C for decades. Never have we had such a mess of a bathhouse! The lights were on all night, which made for a bug hurricane inside the bathhouse. It was literally impossible to even brush your teeth ... they were so thick! Now for the commodes... so bad there was a plunger in each stall and believe me I experienced why. Seriously clean this mess up or CLOSE IT. Y3 never ever again.

    Had a fun filled weekend! Biked and hiked. Grandkids enjoyed all the playgrounds available. Only problem was loud group of people next to our cabin till way into the early morning hours on our first night there.. Drinking and loud music. Should of called the park ranger, as there is a quiet time of 11 PM til 6 AM!
