- General info
Clark’s Lookout State Park is located above the Beaverhead River and is a place that provided the Lewis and Clark Expedition with a view of the route ahead. On August 13, 1805, Captain William Clark climbed this hill overlooking the Beaverhead River to get a sense of his surroundings and document the location.
It is situated on 8.2 acres of land at 5,118 feet.
Clark’s Lookout State Park is located just 1 mile north of Dillon off Highway 91. Interpretive signs explain navigational methods used by the expedition. Make the short walk to the top of the lookout and you’ll discover a magnificent view of the Beaverhead Valley and a monument showing the three-compass readings that Captain Clark took on that day.
