    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.

    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.

    Good overall

    Stayed in Lewis and Clark "yankton area" far east side. Great spots but bathrooms are old and needs remodel. Smells like musty wet mold. There was mold in the showers and no soap in the dispensers all weekend. Bugs all over the sinks and floors, cleaning crew didn't show up until Sunday around 1130am as we left.Toilets were clogged, I'll stay again but shower in my camper!

    Would Return

    Overall stay was great. We were in Gavins area. The gates did say they close at 11 but they never did get closed the whole time we were there (Thurs- Sun). Only other issue we had was the park ranger took our wood we brought from Nebraska. Which is understandable but of course we were upset. Other then that it was great. Plenty of shade, beaches were nice, paved trails were great as well. Also, definitely recommend going to eat at "Rock Bottom' great burgers and service! :)
