Lewis and Clark State Park is situated on one of the upper bays of Lake Sakakawea. The rugged buttes of the North Dakota Badlands display a towering backdrop to one of the state's best recreation areas. The park is named for the Corps of Discovery explorers, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. The expedition camped nearby on April 17, 1805, and an interpretive trail marker has been placed within the park to commemorate their historic journey through North Dakota. Lake Sakakawea offers excellent fishing (Walleye, Sauger, and Northern Pike) and boating opportunities. The park also offers a swimming beach with washed sand. Two rare fish species, the pallid sturgeon and the prehistoric-looking paddlefish, can occasionally be found in the lake's western reaches. Guests of all ages and preferences will love this quaint, gorgeous location by the marina, and you will have a wedding photoshoot you will cherish and delight in for years to come. Set up a billowing white tent on the lawn and utilize the best of North Dakota nature for a stunning wedding.
