Lewis and Clark State Recreation Area

54731 897 Road
Crofton, NE 68730

402-388-4169

Nebraska's second largest lake, Lewis & Clark straddles the northeast border with South Dakota, about 7 miles north of Crofton on Nebraska Highway 121. The lake is about 16 miles long and 3 miles wide, with a maximum depth of 45 feet. It draws its name from the Lewis & Clark Expedition, which camped nearby on their epic journey to explore the Louisiana Purchase. This state recreation area includes five areas on the south side of the lake: Weigand-Burbach, Miller Creek, Bloomfield, South Shore and Deep Water.

Niobrara State Park is located upstream near the confluence of the Missouri and Niobrara rivers. Bazile Creek Wildlife Management Area is near the river about midway between the upper lake and Niobrara park.
