Owanjila Dam is a river dam in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online in the Big Valley region of the West Elizabeth territory.

The dam rests on Owanjila's southeast waterway, connected to the Upper Montana River.


  • Upon further inspection, the player can find a Ginseng Elixir between a log and a rock, just west of the dam itself.
  • South of the dam, about halfway to the border with Tall Trees, a group of scattered crates can be found near the road. Among them is a lockbox containing Chewing Tobacco, money, and the Special Bitters Pamphlet.
  • In a camp conversation between Abigail and John Marston during Beaver Hollow, John proposes to meet at the dam as a contingency plan.


  • This dam is a likely explanation for the lower water level of the Upper Montana River during the storyline of Red Dead Redemption 2. By the time of the first game's story, the water level is much higher than as seen in the second game. It is possible the dam was either damaged, opened up, or left to disrepair.
