Located in northern Montana, near the community of Havre, is Fresno Dam. This little dam has a unique look to it and can be easily accessed by anyone traveling across the state east to west on Highway 2 or from Montana to Canada on Highway 232. There is some very good outdoor recreation found in and along the water backed up by Fresno Dam. The dam itself is somewhat photogenic too though and a great subject for the aspiring photographer.
