The Corps of Engineers' largest lake, and one of six built to control recurrent flooding on the Missouri River. Sites of early Indian culture and of trading and Army posts are located in the area. The Missouri River valley dominates the landscape surrounding the lake, and rolling prairie split by woody draws, can be seen for miles along the shoreline. Wildlife abounds on the project and the lake is a birdwatcher's paradise. Recreation opportunities include boating, fishing, camping, sailing, hunting, waterskiing, jet skiing and scuba diving. This area is along the Lewis and Clark route.
