Discover Yankton


Yankton, know as the Mother City of the Dakotas, is a small town that's big on historical influence. Yankton's history goes all the way back to when Lewis and Clark stopped on the shores of the Missouri River on their great journey westward.

Despite its relatively small size, Yankton boasts multiple properties that have made it onto the National Register of Historic Places. As the capital of the Territory of Dakota and an important river port, Yankton has been the scene of many notable events in the history of the Midwest, including the Dakota War of 1862 and the trial and execution of Jack McCall for the murder of Wild Bill Hickock.

But there’s more to Yankton than its intriguing past. On the banks of the Missouri River and close to a number of lakes, Yankton has a lot to recommend it to those who want to get away from it all. Book an RV in Yankton, SD, and you’ll have access to all the outdoor recreation this part of the country has to offer.

The great thing about having an RV rental in Yankton is that it allows you to explore this area of South Dakota at your own pace. You’ll get a real feel for the turbulent history and natural beauty of your surroundings. And you’ll find plenty to do during your stay.

The Great Outdoors

Within Yankton itself, the Chalk Bluffs Trail offers a great short hike to get you warmed up. The 3.7-mile loop provides beautiful views of the lake, and the trail is multi-use, so it's suitable for mountain bikers and equestrians as well as walkers.

Just outside Yankton, you'll find the Lewis and Clark Recreation Area, which features sandy beaches that are great for swimming in the summer months. The park offers RV sites which can be booked through the Nebraska Parks Service website. As a popular park, the area is well developed, so it boasts all kinds of amenities, such as boat rental, a marina, an archery range, and a visitor center. It's a great place to take the kids, but if you're after a taste of the unspoiled wilderness, this isn't it.

For a glimpse of the Dakota experienced by the pioneers, the Missouri National Recreational River can provide a more rustic experience.

And if you prefer scenic beauty with a dash of history and culture, you could make the 130-mile journey to Pipestone National Monument in Minnesota, a sacred site to Native Americans who have quarried the stone to craft pipes for centuries. And if you're still eager to explore the area's history, the Homestead National Monument of America makes for a fascinating and educational visit.

After picking up your Yankton RV rental by owner, you could also venture to Sioux Falls, a mere 80 miles away.
