Fall is a wonderful time.

Quick overnight stay. According to the ranger 7 total campers in the state park. Very quiet to say the least. Two cold to paddle board.

Rangers! Park Rangers Everywhere !

Lewis and Clark didn’t seem like much, but as soon as we got settled in the Park rangers checked on us. They did patrols all the time around and were super friendly! We had one storm while we were there and they gave us the emergency plan as fast as they could. Most campgrounds could care less, they assume you know the deal. I commend the staff at this place, it’s what true North Dakota’s do for each other.

We also had plenty of space in our campsites and the area is super clean. The trails and the beach were quite exciting as the nights that were clear had the Aurora borealis in the background. So beautiful.

Best campground close to home

My wife and I come here a couple of times every summer. It’s a great place to brings the dogs. There are plenty of trails and the dogs love swimming in the lake.

The bathrooms are thoroughly cleaned every night and the park staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a theater area with educational presentations for the kids. Also, there is an ice cream truck that comes through the campground at night.

Great place!!!

It is a very great campground. Great fishing, great spots, awesome fire pits and very family friendly.. and the rangers are very helpful

It’s okay

This is hot spot for the area. While it has some pros there is a huge con

Pros: Great Lake with best fishing you can get Activities such as swimming, trails, basket ball, geocaching and lots of activities put on by the park Cabin rentals Swimming beach Small craft rentals such SUP 2 playgrounds Dock/ boat launch/ boat storage

Cons: There is absolutely no space or privacy. Expect to be feet away from your neighbor.

Very few trees except for the older lane nearer the lake. The newer loop has no trees, shelter or shade. Prepare the bake.

People books spots for week and months. Getting a “good” space is pretty dismal.

There a few trees in the older part

Great camping & fishing

This is one of our favorite places to camp because fishing is awesome out there. Usually a pretty busy place, so if you are looking for seclusion you won’t find it here. We tent camp so we aren’t as packed as the rvs but still a great place to be & fish for all the species that the lake has to offer

Great camping

No fish!

Good park on lake sakakawea

We were lucky as we camped here in late August 2018, the week prior they had record highs of 109! We had our choice of tent sites, and were right on lake front. Facilities were acceptable. Lots of bugs and flies, but we managed!

Nice sites

Nice campground, with restrooms/showers, playground, amphitheater, picnic tables. Pull through sites, tents sites, cabins. Close access to Lake Sakakawea, within walking distance.

Very Nice CG

Located in the south east tip of South Dakota on Lewis and Clark Lake (Missouri River). This is a huge cg with over 400 sites divided into four sections. All roads and sites are paved with electric only hook up. We stayed on site 362 which is 50A but most sites are 30A. Fill up your fresh tank at the dump station before going to your site because there are very few accessible spigots near the camp sites. The Yankton Section (about 100 sites) is same day reservation only (first come, first serve). There are several swim areas along the shore and a couple of boat ramps. Several cabins are available for reservation and a separate Marina and Resort are next to the cg. About any activity you can think of is available here, such as disc golf, soccer, basketball, archery, one mile nature trail, six mile bike trail and boat rentals for the large lake.
