DescriptionGarrison is in a recreational area just north of man-made Lake Sakakawea. Nearly 200 miles long and 14 miles wide, the lake is formed by Garrison Dam, one of the largest earth-filled dams in the world.
Lake Sakakawea covers 368,000 acres and has a shoreline of 1,600 miles. Recreational opportunities include boating, camping, fishing and winter sports, concentrated at Fort Stevenson State Park, on the north shore off SR 37, and Lake Sakakawea State Park, on the south shore off SR 200. The State Game and Fish Department administers game management areas in the region that permit hunting and fishing in season.
The symbol of one of the area's favorite attractions, fishing, is “Wally Walleye,” a huge replica of a walleyed pike that towers over visitors at Garrison City Park. Custer Mine Historic Site, east of town, has interpretive signs offering historical information about the area.
Dickens Village Festival , a holiday fair held on Main Street in late November and early December, features vendors and stage productions with a Victorian theme.
