Holter Lake campsites closed during hazardous tree removal


BUTTE (June 18, 2014) – Thirteen campsites at Holter Lake Campground will be closed June 23 and 24 as crews remove hazard trees and branches.

“We’re trying to time this maintenance work so it doesn’t coincide with busy weekend use at our lakeside recreation sites,” said Scott Haight, Field Manager for the Bureau of Land Management’s Butte Field Office. “Public safety is always one of our top priorities and we’ll work as quickly and efficiently as we can to make Holter Lake an even better place to recreate.”

While workers clear away dead cottonwood trees and branches, the following campsites will be closed starting on the morning of June 23: numbers 3, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13,14, 15, 18, 24, 26, and 30.

For more information about the Butte Field Office’s recreation sites, including those at Holter and Hauser lakes, call (406) 533-7600.
