We camp quite a bit throughout the Midwest from RMNP in Colorado to Lake Michigan, and this is one of the nicest campgrounds anywhere.
I'd say it's the best groomed State Park we've been to. The grounds people keep this place manicured.
There are probably over 300 sites, many very good, all with nice shade and many on the Lake Shore of a nice, impressive looking Gavins Point reservoir that is the final dam in the Corps of Engineers system.
Lewis and Clark offers one of the best camping opportunities in the greater Midwest.
