Picnic Areas

at Lewis and Clark State Park

Enjoy a picnic lunch at one of the numerous picnic tables with grills scattered along the lake's shoreline in the shade of stately cottonwood, sycamore and walnut trees. For larger gatherings, you can reserve the open picnic shelter, which was built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. This shelter, which has electricity, can be reserved for $45 per day by contacting the park office in advance at 816-579-5564.

The day-use area offers fishing, an open shelter house, modern restrooms, picnic areas and playground equipment.
