Search Bismarck North Dakota

Lake Oahe is located in south central North Dakota and was formed by the damming of the Missouri River near Pierre, SD. The lake is 230 miles long with a shoreline of 2,250 miles and its northern end is just south of Bismarck, the state capital.

The surrounding area is rich in historic sites--Fort Rice, various trading posts, and several Lewis and Clark campsites. In addition, outdoor recreation abounds with activities including boating, camping, fishing, hunting, picnicking, swimming, and water-skiing. Fishing for walleyes and hunting for ducks and geese are the main draws for the lake's sportsmen.
