Beaver Creek Recreation Area is located on the north side of Beaver Bay on Lake Oahe, just 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 Indians.

Over 50 recreation areas are scattered around Lake Oahe, where camping, fishing, boating and hunting are popular activities.

Natural Features:

Lake Oahe extends from Pierre, SD to Bismarck, ND and is 231 miles long. Its 2,250 miles of shoreline are made up of mixed grass prairie dotted with trees that grow down to the shore in occasional steep draws.


Visitors enjoy coming to Lake Oahe for its great boating, water skiing, swimming and fishing opportunities. Many species of fish inhabit the lake, including walleye, northern pike and yellow perch.

Many acres of land around the lake are open to public hunting. A wide variety of small and large game animals inhabits the area, including deer, pronghorn, grouse, dove, pheasant, partridge, squirrel, rabbit and waterfowl.


Beaver Creek offers one picnic shelter and 51 reservable campsites, 37 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. A three-lane boat ramp and two docks are on-site. Younger campers love the park's playgrounds and nature trail.
