Whatever your pleasure, fun awaits in Yankton
Lewis and Clark, General Custer and famous steamboat captains all came through the Yankton area in the early days. Today, the bustling little town on the Missouri River is a water recreation hotspot. Sailboats skim across the waters of Lewis and Clark Lake west of town. Campers enjoy the cottonwood tree-shaded parks, while fishermen try their luck above and below Gavins Point Dam. There’s also more than 100 miles of water available for plenty of fun activities at the Missouri National Recreational River. Inside Yankton, a growing brewery/eatery scene makes exploring the downtown area a vibrant—and delicious—experience. It’s also home to the National Field Archery Association headquarters, where even novices can learn bow skills or attend major tournaments.
