Lewis and Clark State Park is a state park in the US state of Missouri consisting of 189.13 acres (76.54 ha) located in Buchanan County. The park features camping, picnicking, and fishing on 365-acre (148 ha) Lewis and Clark Lake (a.k.a. Sugar Lake).
The tract was acquired in 1934 as the gift of a group of Buchanan County sportsmen and was originally named Sugar Lake State Park. The name was changed in 1938 to honor Lewis and Clark, who are believed to have discovered the lake on their expedition in 1804-1806. The Sugar Lake State Park Open Shelter was built in 1934 by a Civilian Conservation Corps company who encamped briefly at the park. It is a stone picnic shelter on a poured concrete foundation.
