Fort Pierre - Oahe Downstream Recreation Area

20439 Marina Loop Road

The park's three campgrounds give visitors a variety of recreational opportunities, from boating to hiking to disc golf. The Corps of Engineers began building the dam in 1948 and in 1962 started generating electricity. It's one of the largest constructed reservoirs in the United States, measuring 231 miles connecting the capital cities of South Dakota and North Dakota.

Wow as a tourist, coming up the hill and then BAM! Great for walking, taking out the dogs, or even playing with the kids.

If traveling through not worth the side trip bit it was a cool hike. If you were a local great place to spend the day!
