Lewis & Clark State Park is one of the largest in North Dakota. The park was named for Meriwether Lewis & William Clark, leaders of the expedition that lead to the discovery of many of the western states. President Thomas Jefferson sent the explorers west to discover the different wildlife and foliage.
Along with 45 men, the explorers traveled from Hartford, Illinois through portions of Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nevada, South and North Dakota, Montana, Indiana, Oregon and Washington. A trail spanning 3,700 miles marks their three year journey through the states and passes through the North Dakota park. With camping, self-guided nature trails and fishing as some of the more popular activities, the park is a must see for its rich heritage and scenic view of the badlands.
Lewis and Clark State Park is located 19 miles southeast of Williston on Highway 1804.
