Gariep Dam is located near Norvalspont in the Free State province. Its was originally named the Hendrik Verwoerd Dam in 1971 and was renamed Gariep Dam in 1996. Gariep is San for Great Water.

The dam is located about 30 km north east of Colesberg on the Orange River between the Free State to the north and the Eastern Cape to the south. The dam itself is a concrete gravity-arch hybrid dam. This design was chosen as the gorge is too wide for a complete arch so flanking walls form gravity abutments to the central arch.

There are many accommodation and conference facilities in the town of Gariep. The area is the most central location in South Africe and also has a nature reserve.
