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.
Lewis and Clark State Park does require a day-use fee, however annual passes are also available. For more information about hours, directions, fees, and activities, please visit the North Dakota Parks and Recreation website.
