Welcome to South Dakota's Platte Creek Lodge. Come and enjoy our spacious lodge with your friends and or family. Just 1 and 1/2 miles west of downtown Platte, and minutes from the area golf course, and the beautiful Missouri river, Platte Creek Lodge's ideal location will offer you a wonderful base to enjoy the areas attractions such as fishing, hunting, golfing, boating on Lake Francis Case, or shopping in one of the many wonderful shops in Platte.


Come join us on beautiful Lake Francis Case on the Missouri River in Platte, SD. Our river system has an abundant supply of walleye and small mouth bass, with an occasional Northern Pike smacking your line. The walleye that live in this river system range from 15” to 28”, with a lot in the 16”-18” range, great eating fish. For your South Dakota walleye fishing trip we tend to either jig, drift with jigs or bottom bouncers, or troll crank baits to entice great fish.

We fish how you like to, as it is your trip. Your guide will work with you to decide on what is working best at that time. In addition to catching fish your Platte Creek Guide will help show you the sites and share history of the mighty Missouri River. We will clean and vacuum seal your fish to allow your walleye to be as fresh as the day it was caught.
