Belle Fourche Reservoir (Orman Dam)
Belle Fourche Dam is a principal feature of the Belle Fourche Project, which was among the first irrigation projects constructed under the Reclamation Act of 1902. The primary purpose of the dam is to store water for agricultural use downstream in the general vicinity of Newell, Vale, and Nisland, South Dakota. The dam is a massive homogeneous earth-filled structure with a crest length of 6,262 feet. When completed in 1911, the dam was the largest of its type in the world at 8000 acres. In April 1989, Belle Fourche Dam was designated a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. Recreational activiies include fishing for walleye, catfish, and white bass, hunting, boating, camping, picnicking, swimming, and historical sites. Rocky Point is the newest park in the South Dakota state park system, and opened in 2006.
