Local Attractions & Events|
There's more to Chamberlain than the Missouri River. Families can spend hours learning about South Dakota's history and culture in some of our local attractions!
Lewis & Clark Trail
Every year, thousands of people follow the Lewis & Clark trail, trying to embrace the journey that Lewis & Clark traveled over 200 years ago. Did you know they passed right through the Chamberlain area and YOU can take a peek at the same trail they traveled at our Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center? Hop aboard the 55 foot Keelboat and experience breath- taking views from the stern. Re-live their journey with stations that explain the Corps traveling adventures through present day South Dakota!
