Fun Things To Do
While you are staying at North Shore Cabin, you will find the location of the cabin provides
convenient access to many of the local attractions, including Lewis & Clark Lake, yet you
are still off the beaten path in a quiet, wooded area where you will often find wild turkey's
wandering the property or deer eating our apples! During the summer, you can take a
stroll up the path to get a view of the Lake, bring your bikes and ride a trail, or come during
the winter and take your snowmobiles out for a ride. Doesn't matter the season, at the
end of the day, coming back to North Shore Cabin will make you feel like coming home without
Enjoy some of our pictures of local attractions and take a look at some of links we
have provided for you to get more information on what to do during your stay.
There is plenty of wildlife around the lake and our cabin. You will see
deer and turkey daily because they live in the area and some stay on our land,
thus get your camera and binoculars ready! Bald eagles and other birds
are especially common during migration of ducks and geese.
This Bald Eagle was in a tree outside of the cabin.
Whether it's Bow-Hunting or rifle, our area is known for its hunters! So come
prepared to take home your trophy.

If you like to fish, don't forget your fishing pole! The river and lake
along with surrounding areas, is one of the best walleye, catfish, small and
largemouth bass fishing area of the whole Midwest. Paddle fish, one of the
oldest fish on this planet, can be seen below the dam on a regular basis.
Archery fishing is also very common.

Trails - Walking & Bicyling
There are many bicycle riding paths, walking trails and mountain bike trails,
both in both State Parks, Nebraska & South Dakota, and around the Lewis
& Clark Lake so don't forget your bikes! We may have some bicycles

Canoes & Kayaks
Lewis & Clark Lake, and our cabin, are in the middle of 200 miles of the
designation known as the "National Scenic and Recreational River", which has
untouched and natural Missouri river channels as they were in the days of Lewis
& Clark. An untamed river runs free from Pickstown (Fort Randall dam)
to Niobrara and Springfield, and then from Yankton (Gavins Point Dam) to
Ponca. Those two sections of the river, about 60 miles each, provide
exceptional waterway for canoeing and kayaking.
Boats & Jetskis
To many folks, Lewis & Clark Lake is all about boating and playing on the
water. Thus, do not forget your power toys! There is plenty of
parking space at our property for all of your power toys. You may also
rent some of my boats, we do have three of them. Or, I may take you, and
your companions, on a free boat ride so that you can enjoy the lake. Talk
to me about it to see what we can do to make your stay more enjoyable!

Snowmobiles & Cross Country
Just because it's winter doesn't mean the fun has to stop! Many of the Parks in
the area have snowmobile trails or large open areas for your Cross Country
Skiing fun. So if your visiting us during the winter, don't forget to bring
