Description
Fort Pierre is across the Missouri River from Pierre, the state capital. It was an active fort in 1831, when settlers and gold seekers filled steamboats on the river. When trains replaced the boats, farming and raising livestock took over as mainstays of the local economy.
The Oahe Downstream Recreation Area, near Lake Oahe, offers camping, swimming, fishing, nature trails, a playground and boat rentals.
The Fort Pierre National Grassland encompasses 116,000 acres and is 5 miles south of Fort Pierre. Visitors can enjoy bird-watching, picnicking, camping, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and hunting.
