Holter Lake Campgrounds Remain Closed


The Bureau of Land Management campgrounds at Holter Lake remain closed due to the Indian Trail fire.

Log Gulch, Holter Lake and Departure Point campgrounds were closed Sept. 10 and will remain closed until further notice, said officials from the BLM’s Butte Field Office.

Log Gulch sustained the most damage in the fire which swept through the area, starting on Sept. 9. Though no campground structures were damaged, campsites and other portions of the campground area were burned by the fire. BLM officials will assess the damage and determine when it is safe to re-open the campground.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
