Description

Chief White Crane Campground is a large, developed campground right on the banks of Lake Yankton. This spot is great for groups and families—bring the kids along, there’s a playground on site! Swim and boat ‘til your heart’s content in the scenic lake that's surrounded by green grass, blue skies, and thick woodlands. In the winter, this is a fabulous spot to view bald eagles. They perch up high in the trees near the Missouri River. Just look up!
