    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.

    Relaxing weekend

    We love this campground! Campsites are well maintained, pads flat and easily accessible! Check in office pleasant and helpful! Dump station gets busy and campers backed up in line. Beaches are pretty nice but wish they’d clean up a little more of the natural debris. But we always enjoy our stay there! Hard to get a reservation at last minute because they book so quickly so need to reserve in middle of the week in order to have a spot. Just proof that this is a wonderful campground and many people enjoy it there. We will continue to camp there as often as we can! Love it there

    Top notch getaway

    We've stayed in the cabins in the Lewis and Clark Recreation Area multiple times over the years and the experience is always great. Easy access to beaches and walking paths and bathrooms are always clean.

    Lewis & Clark

    As an extended family we camp once a year in a South Dakota state park. This year we were at Lewis & Clark and so enjoy the cleanliness of the comfort stations, the friendliness of the staff and all the work they put in to maintain the beach area and the grass area. A very neat, clean and safe place to camp!

    Heat wave

    Our recent stay was great. Sites and restrooms are well maintained. We spent a lot of time out on the water. Even with the extreme heat it was a very fun and enjoyable week!
