Rocky Point Recreation Area

We’re parked about 10 miles east of Belle Fourche, SD in Rocky Point Recreation Area on the banks of Belle Fourche Reservoir.  There are about 50 back-in sites here, all providing electric only.  Potable water is available at the dump station between the check-in gate and the campground.  We are in sites 12 & 13 just south of the boat ramp.  The sites around the point, number 18-20 offer great views of the lake while the sites at the far end (42-48) seem a bit more private.  Each site provides shade to varying degrees, a fire ring and picnic table.  Belle Fourche Reservoir was created in 1911 when Orman Dam was completed.  That that time, Orman Dam was the largest earthen dam in the world.  In 1989 Orman Dam was designated a national historic Civil Engineering Landmark.

From Belle Fourche, we’ll continue south into Wyoming.  More from there…
