Fischers Lilly Park

Fischers Lilly ParkThe meeting of Lewis and Clark’s Corp of Discovery and the Teton Lakota nation is considered to be one of the most pivotal moments in the history of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Differences in trade objectives, diplomacy, and the lack of an interpreter lead to an armed confrontation, the closest Lewis and Clark came to a premature end to their expedition. This meeting happened at the mouth of the Bad River in what today is known as Fischers Lilly Park. In June of 2004 Lilly Park was renamed Fischers Lilly Park and was certified by the National Park Service as a Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail site.

Fischers Lilly Park hosts 12 RV pads with electrical outlets, available on a first-come, first-serve basis with no stay limit.  There is also a dump station. The fee is currently $10/night.  Water and electric is available at each pad.  The park also has playground equipment and a picnic shelter with electrical outlets and bathrooms. A boat ramp can also be found on the park side of the Bad River and the boat ramp off Deadwood St. is accessible to the park by a newly built walking bridge over the Bad River.
