BUTTE, Mont.) – Good news for “plugged-in” campers hoping to reserve sites at the Bureau of Land Management’s Holter Lake Campground north of Helena: the Butte Field Office will be taking bookings online starting in 2020.
Sites 1-33 at the popular and busy campground will be available via recreation.gov. This group of sites will be known as Loop A in the reservation system. In the past, these sites were booked on a first-come, first-served basis.
Not all camping spots at Holter Lake Campground will be added to recreation.gov, though. Sites 34-42 will remain as “first-come, first-served,” with site 34 being ADA-accessible. Sites 34-52 are in the main parking lot, and they also include the grassy area for tent camping. For individual camping sites, reservations can be made six months in advance once they go live starting January 2.
“We’re very excited to offer the public a new, faster and more convenient way to begin booking their outdoor recreation experience at Holter Lake,” said Kelly Scarbrough, Supervisory Outdoor Recreation Planner with the Butte Field Office. “I can’t think of anything better and easier than to reserve a camping spot through the recreation.gov website.”
