The Four Lakes and Dams

If you want a big lake experience, you’ll find it along the Missouri River. Four large reservoirs were created along the length of the “Big Mo,” thanks to dams near Pierre, Fort Thompson, Pickstown and Yankton. All four lakes offer an abundance of fishing and hunting along with recreational boating, jet skiing, sailing and fun. Camping is found along the shores as well as hotel/motel accommodations in nearby towns.
