Clean, deep and wide, Gyeongcheonho Lake is a typical valley type reservoir made by blocking the Geumcheon River, a tributary of the Nakdong River. Starting the construction on June 1983, it was completed in December of 1986 at the cost of 60.2 billion won after 3 years and 6 months. The length of bank is 368 m, the height is 63.5 m, and the maximum depth is 57 m. The total amount of storage is 28,220,000 tons. It provides water for farming to a physical area of 3,400 hectares in 76 of ri/dong, 9 eup/myeon of Mungyeong and Yecheon.

The streams which flow through each valley and the Geumcheon river, which starts from Jeokseong-ri Hwangjangsan, fill Gyeongcheon lake.  This dam, with its clean water and great views, is a popular fishing area during summer vacation. It is more abundant in fish species and numbers than any other dam because it used to be a treasury of fresh water fish such as carp, catfish, minnows, and perch. This abundance provides anglers not only the sport of catching the Big One but also the opportunity to taste smelts and sweetfish.
