Points of Interest

Fort Peck Lake, the fourth largest human-made reservoir in the world, is 25 miles north of Jordan.  Fort Peck Lake is backed up behind the Missouri River by the world’s largest hydraulic earth-filled dam. It is one of the world’s greatest fisheries, with species such as walleye, northern pike, lake trout, bass, and many others.

Fort Peck Lake is surrounded by the beautiful and famous Missouri Breaks.  Sportsmen come from all over the world to take in the Missouri Breaks’ wonderful hunting resources.  Elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, antelope, predators and many bird species inhabit the area.

Jordan is also known as the dinosaur capitol of the world. Numerous digs are presently taking place in the Missouri Breaks.
