Hazelton Recreation Area

Hazelton, North Dakota

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.
