The Lewis and Clark Expedition headed west in 1804 and encountered a lake that William Clark described as “full of Geese & Goslings.” Today, that lake is Lewis and Clark Lake, which is bordered by Lewis and Clark State Park. The park’s broad open spaces and easy water access make it a favorite for families who take advantage of the boat ramp and swimming beach. Bird watchers come to Lewis and Clark to watch geese, great blue herons and snowy egrets flock to the oxbow lake.

They could have more things to do! Most lakes you go visit have water rafting or jet skis this didn't have any rental places to do anything on the water.

Area is pretty tired and overgrown. Not much usable access to the waterfront. Ample parking and restrooms and a "historic" shelter house I remember eating under as a kid. I should have left my memories untainted.

Off the beaten path, this hidden gem includes camp sites with 30 amp electric hookups and water to fill trailer tanks. Clean restrooms have showers and a laundry; the park has walking trails and playground equipment. The bonus is that it isn't crowded even on...More

I didn't know what to expect and I didn't find much. The park does offer camping and picnicking and access to the Missouri River, and big bird flocks during migration season. Check mostateparks.com to see if it will appeal to you.
