Very nice! We got to the park after dark, so we didn't really see the beautiful scenery until the morning. What a wonderful place to wake up to! Great price!

Lewis and Clark State Park is named for Meriwether Lewis, Secretary to President Thomas Jefferson, and Captain William Clark, United States Army, who were commissioned by President Jefferson in 1804 to head an expedition into the northwest to explore the vast territory purchased from France. With twenty-six men and supplies, Lewis and Clark led their expedition up the Missouri River from St. Louis by keelboat. The Park has a variety of outdoor activities to choose from including fishing from Blue Lake, swimming, hiking, hunting, biking and wildlife viewing.

So the campground was nice, facilities clean and close to most sites. The downfall is the the electrical boxes need attention. We pulled in at 8:30pm, set up on a 30A box with our pop up, ate dinner and then sparks flew and we lost power. We checked the power box and it had melted our power cord but never tripped the breaker. When we went to unplug, the outlet started crumbling. The park office was already closed so we had to go without power until they opened at 0900 and he next morning. When we went to the office, they were friendly but stated that it’s usually the camper that causes this. I was already irritated and that was the icing on the cake. Our camper is brand new and has been used 6 times in the last 2 months with no issues. He still took our name and number and told us to have the camper looked at and call them to report any needed repairs and they would see if they could do anything. We drove to a nearby camping world, bought a new power cord and continued on our trip. We are just hoping the inverter isn’t fried too. I really wish routine maintenance was done better to avoid damaging campers and ruining vacations. This was day 1 of a 6 day vacation so we are just hoping for the best.
