Steak smothered in sautéed onions and mushrooms. BBQ ribs. Turtle cheesecake. Those are our favorites. All the best there is in the area. Always enjoy the service. Nothing fancy, but the favorite place for the wife and I to eat. Nice view of Lake Oahe as well!

I stayed 2 nights during the week as part of a large group (100 people). I thought the place was just fine...The food at the restaurant was decent & the cabin I stayed in was good as well. I spent 1 1/2 days fishing on Oahe & the warm shower & soft bed were welcomed. The staff was ok. The... More

My best friend Duke and I have spent many summer and fall vacations at the Outpost in the small cabins. The owners are friendly, helpful and the Outpost is run very well. They have never been rude or drunk. I have stayed there at least 10 times. The service is excellent as well as the food. The steaks and ribs... More

Poorly run by owners, management. Could have potential, but would need someone with personality and communication skills not to mention business management and administration ability. This is an excellent outdoor recreation area but as for the bar and grill at this establishment you can do better elsewhere. Check the other reviews for this and other options in the area.

If your planning on staying in the standard size cabins, ONLY do so w/ a total of 2 in your group. These cabins are TINY, great for 2 buddies fishing together, but no room for much else. Wish we knew this prior to making a reservation.

Stayed in one of the 12 modern log cabin units. Stayed here for a long weekend of fishing. Cabins were fine. Clean and very reasonably priced. Cabin was divided in two with adjoining door, so it would work nicely if you were with another couple or taking a larger family. Each side had 2 queen beds, tv/satellite, table/chairs, kitchenette, coffee... More

Went to this restaurant - "the best in town" - some 18 miles outside of Pierre, on the recommendation of the motel clerk. Parking lot and dining room were full of locals, so that tells you that this is a good place to eat. Were seated by the owner in a corner and had the opportunity to check out the... More
