Clark's Lookout State Park


  • State Park
This outcropping above the Beaverhead River provided the Lewis and Clark Expedition a view of the route ahead. Captain William Clark climbed this hill overlooking the Beaverhead River to scout what lay ahead for the Lewis and Clark Expedition. You can drive to the site located just 1 mile north of Dillon off Highway 91, park right next to it, and walk the trail to the top. It is situated on 8.2 acres of land at 5,118 feet.

A golf course and three museums are located nearby in Dillon. This is a day use only site and a $5.00 day use fee, cash or check only. There is no visitor center, camping or staff at this location.
