This recreation area is part of Sakakawea Lake
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 campground, with restrooms/showers, playground, amphitheater, picnic tables. Pull through sites, tents sites, cabins. Close access to Lake Sakakawea, within walking distance.
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.
We had the time of our lives at Lewis and Clark state park! The views are amazing! The water is like being in Ocean with big waves. They hold many awesome eventful weekends during season.
We always drop in our boat here. There are 2 good size lanes so a horrible backup person like myself has no problem! The campground has a few trees for privacy but mostly open
