A full service park and Nebraska's second largest lake, Lewis & Clark Lake straddles the northeast border with South Dakota and is about 16 miles long and 3 miles wide. The area gets its name from the Lewis & Clark Expedition, which camped nearby on their epic journey exploring the Louisiana Purchase. This recreation area offers beautiful scenic views of the lake and the bluffs.
For those that would like to enjoy the lake in the comforts of a cabin, Lewis and Clark have 10 fully furnished year-round air conditioned and heated cabins right along the shoreline. These modern cabins have 2 bedrooms and can sleep up to 7 people. Each cabin has a bathroom with shower, full kitchen and a living room. The cabin's sliding doors opens onto a covered patio that overlooks the lake which makes for a great location to watch some spectacular sunsets. Each cabin has a picnic table and grill/fire pit for evening campfire and S'mores.
In addition to the 10 shoreline cabins, the area offers 10 modern cabins along the water as well as 150 camping pads with electricity, 24 non-pad sites with electricity, and 140 non-pad sites without electricity. There is great fishing available at Lewis and Clark for a variety of species including walleye, sauger, largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill, crappie, and catfish. Excellent waterfowl hunting is available as well. Lake boating covers the gamut from pontoons to high-powered speedboats to personal watercrafts.
Not only are the above amenities available, Lewis and Clark State Recreation Area offers much more, including, hiking and biking, bird watching, snowmobiling, ice fishing, ice skating, cross country skiing, picnicking, swimming, playgrounds, scuba diving, water skiing and stargazing.
