North Point Recreation Area

/userdocs/North Point Recreation Area

Located on the shores of the Missouri River just above Fort Randall Dam, North Point Recreation Area provides a spectacular river view. Lewis and Clark came up the river in late-August, early-September in 1804. In this area, they saw their first prairie dogs, which they called "barking squirrels." They were also told to watch for an infrequent phenomenon called "burning bluffs," where the shale ignites and smokes.

Fort Randall Marina is privately operated under agreement with the Division of Parks and Recreation. Contact by phone: 605.487.7272
