Oahe Downstream Lodge

Oahe Downstream Lodge

The Oahe Downstream group lodge was constructed within the recreation area in 2006. With shoreline access, guests are now treated to a beautiful view and private shoreline for swimming, canoeing, or other types of water recreation.

The lodge is equipped with a full kitchen with cookware, serving utensils, and appliances and is separated from the "great" room" by a 16 foot serving bar. The 25 x 30 foot "Great" room provides comfortable seating for up to 65 guests. Tables and folding chairs are available on-site

Large grassy areas are also maintained around the lodge and provide ample room for those wishing to tent. A large campfire ring is situated near the river for evening cooking or socializing.
