The recreation area offers a marina and convenience store, as well as an on-site restaurant run by the park's concessionaire. 

Whether you are looking to enjoy one of the top fishing destinations in the region, a relaxing family vacation, a place to ride the waves, or just to enjoy time with your family and friends for a day trip, there is no better place to live your legacy than at Spring Creek on Lake Oahe.
