2017 Lewis and Clark Caravan

May 16 - June 21, 2017 St Charles, MO

Be a part of the modern-Day Corps of Discovery as you travel with Winnebago Outdoor Adventures! We’ll travel along a similar route that Meriwether Lewis and William Clark explored over 200 years ago in their search for a water route to the Pacific Ocean. Witness some of the same majestic views as you travel one of the most scenic highways through the state of Idaho.

You will begin to follow their epic journey near the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers in St. Charles, Missouri. The caravan will follow the trail as closely as possible to its end in Warrenton, Oregon. Historians, expert guides, musicians, and storytellers will share their enthusiasm and love of the historical imprints left by Lewis and Clark.
