Overview

Overview

Hazelton Recreation Area is located on the east bank of the Missouri River on Lake Oahe just south of Bismarck, ND. The lake is formed by the Oahe Dam in South Dakota, which was built during the Flood Control Act of 1944, commonly called the Pick-Sloan Plan.

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.

Recreation:

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 inhabit the area, including deer, pronghorn, grouse, dove, pheasant, partridge, squirrel, rabbit and waterfowl.

Facilities:

The campground offers 18 primitive sites and 12 sites with 50-amp electrical hookups. Picnic tables and campfire rings are provided.

Amenities include vault toilets and a playground. A boat ramp is located on-site and has a large paved parking lot, adjacent picnic tables, a fish cleaning station and additional vault toilets.
