Glen Ullin is the gateway to Lake Tschida and all the fun to be had is found there. Recreational activities include fishing, boating and swimming. Lake Tschida is located 15 miles south of Glen Ullin on Highway 49. The lake backs up over twenty miles from the Heart Butte Dam. Lake Tschida was created when the Heart Butte Dam was finished in 1949. The Heart Butte Dam was the first flood control and irrigation project in North Dakota.
