One of the best things about renting an RV is having the freedom to experience scenic wilderness areas at your own pace. With its postcard-perfect scenery and biodiverse landscapes, the American Midwest is a prime place to kick off a cross-country camping adventure.
Rocky Point is near the four corners of Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, and North Dakota. It's also close to the city of Belle Fourche, which is considered the city nearest to the geographic center of the United States. The park itself is surrounded by flatlands and is home to the Belle Fourche Reservoir.
The Belle Fourche Reservoir carries some history that many other reservoirs don’t. The original dam built for this reservoir was the largest earthen dam in the world for its time, back in 1911. This earned the reservoir a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1989. It's no surprise that most Rocky Point Recreation Area campers spend much of their time fishing, boating, and paddling.
If you're motoring through the Mount Rushmore State on your travels, you'll want to add Rocky Point Recreation Area to your itinerary. No motorhome? No problem. Book an RV in Butte County and start packing for a lakeside getaway.
Unlike many state parks, Rocky Point Recreation Area doesn’t have many places where you can go hiking. You'll find a walking opportunity on a two-mile road which loops around the park.
Belle Fourche Reservoir offers ample opportunities to go boating, canoeing, and kayaking. If you don't have your own watercraft, you can rent a canoe or kayak on-site. The reservoir is approximately 8,000 acres, so you'll have more than enough space to enjoy your watersports.
While you're exploring the lake in your boat, why not cast a line and try your luck? The lake is home to walleye, bass, perch, catfish, and tiger muskie. Just make sure you have a current state fishing license.
If you simply want to swim around in the cool waters of the Belle Fourche Reservoir, you're free to do so, as long as you stay in the designated swimming areas. For Belle Fourche campers who love the water, Rocky Point Recreation Area is the perfect place to camp in an RV.

This museum honors the Old West pioneers and the Native Americans who lived in South Dakota and surrounding states.
If you're more interested in history dating back to dinosaurs, you might find that PaleoAdventures has what you want to see. Also located in the city of Belle Fourche, this natural history museum displays an abundance of fossils found in the American Midwest. You can even try your hand at unearthing some dinosaur fossils of your own on a dinosaur dig site tour.
