Just below the dam on the Missouri river in Yankton, the Chief White Crane Recreation area is a beautiful place to visit in every season of the year. In summers, small children build sand castles on the beach while kayakers and canoeists paddle the calm waters of Lake Yankton. In winter the bald eagles are abundant here. In autumn there is no prettier place for a drive, and each spring migratory waterfowl grace the area with their presence.
