The wastelander lake hideout is a camp established behind an irradiated lake near the far top of the Wasteland. It was home to at least one scientist and possibly a wastelander before they were presumably killed by one or more raiders.
To get to this location, the Lone Wanderer must head west, slightly northwest, of Oasis. This may be difficult for some, as several Enclave soldiers will set up camp nearby if the player has completed The Waters of Life.
The camp is hidden across the lake, behind part of an old dump truck. A bed, several RadAways, chems, and a safe can be found in a small area here. The safe contains random caps and chems. The corpse of a scientist wearing a radiation suit can be found next to a dead wastelander in this small area, both lying in blood. A lone raider is also found a few feet away from the bodies, drowned in water.

The wastelander lake hideout only appears in Fallout 3.
