Davis Creek Dam
The earthen dam was constructed in 1919 by the United States Bureau of Reclamation with a height of 153 feet and 2900 feet long at its crest. It impounds Davis Creek for flood control, part of the North Loup Division of the Bureau's extensive Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program. The dam is owned by the Bureau and is operated by the local Twin Loups Irrigation District.
The reservoir it creates, Davis Creek Reservoir, has a water surface of 1,145 acres and has a capacity of 44,918 acre-feet. Recreation includes fishing (for largemouth bass, walleye, crappie, yellow perch, etc.), hunting, boating, camping and hiking. The northern shore borders the Davis Creek State Wildlife Recreational Area.
