The Butte Field Office manages over 300,000 acres of public lands and approximately 650,000 acres of mineral estate in eight counties in southwestern Montana.  These eight counties represent the rich diversity of Montana – ranging from prairie grasslands to timbered mountains.

Recreational opportunities abound in this area! Developed campgrounds on Hauser and Holter Lakes near Helena provide an abundance of water-based recreation. The Big Hole River area south of Butte provides angler access to a blue-ribbon trout stream and several access points to the nearby Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. Opportunities for hiking and OHV riding can also be found by checking out the recreation opportunities listed on this website.

The Butte area is called the “richest hill on earth,” and the area is rich in mineral deposits for the serious explorer or weekend rockhound. Other important uses include livestock grazing and forest management. When you come to Montana, visit lands managed by the Butte Field Office and enjoy America's public lands!
