    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.

    beach in the middle of the country

    Staying on the beach in Nebraska was awesome. The only issue was the questionable people at the bathroom during the middle of the night when my son had to use the restroom

    I Love Camping

    We stayed for 5 days over Fathers Day Weekend. Lewis and Clark is the only place we camp. We love the location for Boating and Camping. It is by far the cleanest and most comfortable camping spot available in the Yankton Area. I do feel the upkeep of the bathrooms and security is less this year. One new improvement I love is the new bathrooms in the Yankton Unit Y-4. Things that would be really nice is WiFi-- More Boat docks and bathrooms.

    Rookie campers

    We were lucky enough to come across the Lewis and Clark Recreation Area. We booked our site online before arriving. Upon arriving, we found it to be a beautiful place for our stay. The campsite was very shaded. Very busy, but did not have a cramped feeling. Our site was right next to the river with a nice beach area. A nice cool swim was just what we needed. Bath facilities were great too!

    The park was clean and well kept up. Easy checkin when you get there. There is really no bad spot in the park to camp
