Al’s Oasis

Finding a place to park a big rig and enjoy a little time away from being a truck driver can be hard, but this little gem of a tourist attraction is a great place offering just that. Al’s Oasis, located off if I-90 in Oacoma, South Dakota reels you in with a larger than life buffalo statue, accompanied by two, less sizeable baby buffalo perched on a grassy patch beside the Interstate.

Catching a glimpse of several big rigs parked in a lot opposite a building reminiscent of the wild west, we decided to indulge our curiosity.

Stepping into one of the many buildings, we found a vast expanse of novelty knick nacks and cute collectibles.

I loved these novelty spritzers, I’m surprised they’re not sold out of “understand men”.

A great display of Al’s Oasis literature and paraphernalia stands between the gift shop and restaurant.

There is also a full supermarket located at Al’s Oasis. We partook in a little shopping and found their prices on eggs to be worthy of multiple photos.

I had to snap a photo of the old pay phone simply because it is now considered a “novelty”.

We absolutely loved our time at Al’s Oasis. My husband had a buffalo  burger and I enjoyed an Indian fry bread taco. We will definitely make time to stop again, there is so much to see, I’m sure we will discover new things on our next trip.
