Lake Oahe

Beaver Creek Recreation Area is located on the north side of Beaver Bay on Lake Oahe, 16 miles west of Linton, ND off Highway 1804. The lake and dam are named for the Oahe Indian Mission established in 1874 among the Lakota Sioux Native Americans.

Over 50 recreation areas are scattered around Lake Oahe, where camping, fishing, boating and hunting are popular activities. For more information, visit the Lake Oahe Project Website.  

Beaver Creek offers one picnic shelter and 61 reservable campsites, 45 of which have 30-amp electric hookups. The group day-use picnic shelter has electric hookups as well. Amenities include seasonal flush toilets, vault toilets and drinking water (peak season). A three-lane boat ramp and two docks are on-site with another single lane ramp and dock on the southeast side of the bay.
