Devil's Elbow Campground Boat Ramp Closing for Upgrades

The boat ramp and docks at Devil's Elbow Campground on Hauser Reservoir will be closed from July 23 through the end of the season. 

This closure will allow for improvements at the existing boat ramp. In order to resolve safety and erosion concerns, the concrete ramp will be extended and a retaining wall installed.   Alternate sites for boat launching on the lake are at White Sandy Campground, Black Sandy State Park, Riverside Campground, and the Fish, Wildlife and Parks boat ramp at York Bridge.

Located about 15 miles east of Helena on York Road and adjacent to Clark's Bay Day-use area and the Two Camps Vista interpretive site, Devil's Elbow Campground is managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The campground will remain open and the boat ramp will reopen in the spring of 2009.
