General Information

Description - This information was provided by North Dakota Parks & Recreation Department

Lewis and Clark State Park is situated on one of the upper bays of Lake Sakakawea The rugged buttes of the North Dakota Badlands display a towering backdrop to one of the state's best recreation areas.

The park, of course, is named for the Corps of Discovery explorers, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. The expedition camped nearby on April 17, 1805, and an interpretive trail marker has been placed within the park to commemorate their historic journey through North Dakota.

A well-developed marina, with gas dock, slip rentals, and a campstore, is available. The marina boat ramp provides access to Lake Sakakawea for boats of all sizes. As with all parks on Lake Sakakawea, fishing and water sports are the major attractions. Anglers will find excellent fishing for walleye, sauger and northern pike. When the lake freezes, ice fishing for perch and walleye are popular pastimes. The park's campstore is well-stocked with fishing necessities, and fishing licenses are also on sale there. A fish cleaning station is located in the marina area.

Two rare fish species... the pallid sturgeon and the prehistoric-looking paddlefish... can occasionally be found in the lake's western reaches.

A self-guided nature trail allows visitors to become acquainted with the natural communities associated with the park, which is home for many wildlife species including white-tailed deer, mule deer, ring-necked pheasant, porcupine, sharp-tailed grouse and chipmunks.
