Nebraska's second largest lake, Lewis & Clark straddles the northeast border with South Dakota, about 7 miles north of Crofton on NE Hwy 121. The lake stretches for some 35 miles at maximum pool, with 90 miles of shoreline. Maximum depth is 45 feet. It draws its name from the Lewis & Clark Expedition, which camped nearby on their epic journey to explore the Louisiana Purchase. This Nebraska Game and Parks Commission state recreation area includes five areas on the south side of the lake - Weigand-Burbach, Miller Creek, Bloomfield, South Shore and Deep Water.
