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 make it a favorite for families who take advantage of the scenic picnic areas and playground. Bird watchers come to Lewis and Clark to watch geese, great blue herons, eagles, swans and snowy egrets flock to the oxbow lake throughout the seasons.

Although we did not stay overnight, we drove around the part. A bit unusual location as camp sites are right off a road and park is near a subdivision/village. That said, spacious campsites, nice shower house/bathrooms, children's playground, lake for fishing, and Lewis & Clark...More

The Lewis and Clark State Park is located just outside Lewis and Clark Village. It is a fairly remote area where only few people live. There is no specific Lewis and Clark Expedition related history in the area (although the name of the village suggests...More

We stayed her because the Weston park was full. It's about 12 miles from Weston and just a little further from Parkville. There were several 50 amp sites that were level and pull through with shade. It was nice. Not much to do but our...More

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.

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.
