An intensive cultural resource reconnaissance Class II Inventory survey was conducted by the Archeology Laboratory, Augustana College, along stretches of the west bank of Lake Oahe in Stanley and Dewey counties, South Dakota. The area surveyed was over 11,550 acres. Thirty-five sites were recorded in Stanley County three have both aboriginal and historic components. Ten sites were recorded in Dewey County, two of which have both prehistoric and historic components. Recorded sites include Initial Middle Missouri, Extended Middle Missouri and Extended Coalescent villages, as well as many unassigned aboriginal artifact scatters. Euro-American occupation of the area is documented in the site record, usually in the form of depressions with associated historic debris scatters. The majority of the sites recorded during this survey in Stanley County are surface manifestations evaluated as having minimal research potential. The Dewey County sites are potentially eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.
