    Description

    Rocky Point Recreation Area is located on the 8,000-acre Belle Fourche Reservoir. The reservoir was created in 1911, when Orman Dam was constructed to store water for agricultural use. At the time of its completion, Orman Dam was the largest earthen dam in the world. In 1989, Orman Dam was designated a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.

    Glide along the water in a kayak or canoe, fish and take a boat out on the water when you camp overnight. Rocky Point Recreation Area offers sites with or without electricity and cozy one-bedroom cabins in scenic locations. Book your reservation quickly and easily using the online system. Cabins are built for four people and furnished with a double bed, set of bunk beds, heating, air conditioning and electricity. Cooking is not permitted inside, but an outdoor fire grate and picnic table are provided.

    Fishing is a popular activity at Rocky Point Recreation Area, and a boat ramp, fish-cleaning station and fishing pole checkout are provided. Species found in the reservoir are walleye, yellow perch, channel catfish, black crappie, smallmouth bass, white bass and tigermuskie. A canoe or kayak can be rented and games borrowed for use at the park. If you're in the mood for a good hike, visit the George S. Mickelson Trail, in the heart of the beautiful Black Hills. Its gentle slopes and easy access allow people of all ages and abilities to enjoy the beauty of the area.

    The people make the difference

    I booked my stay over the Labor Day weekend when there was only one site left and could not get Sunday night. We checked for cancellations and Leann at the check-in booth went over and beyond to help us out. She has always been wonderful, greets everyone with a warm smile and a cheerful goodbye when we leave.

    Beautiful, Friendly & Clean

    We have been to Rocky Point many times. This is a very friendly, clean, and beautiful camp ground. During the day the swimming. boating and fishing are absolutely fabulous. The evening are perfect for around the fire story and memories, the skies are clear and the stars a abundant. The perfect place for young and young at heart! at least 10 1/2 stars.
