Located within the rolling plain of the Missouri Plateau, and bordered by rugged bluffs, broken by a complex of eroded canyons and ravines, the Lake Francis Case area has become one of the most popular recreation spots in the Great Plains.

Fort Randall Dam lies within view of the military post from which it takes its name.  The name of the original fort honored Colonel Daniel W. Randall, one-time deputy paymaster of the Army.  The reservoir behind Fort Randall Dam, which is named after the former South Dakota Representative and Senator, Francis Higbee Case, extends 107 miles upstream to Big Bend Dam near Fort Thompson, South Dakota.
