White Sandy Recreation Site Re-Open after Improvement Work

BUTTE (May 25, 2012) – The Bureau of Land Management’s White Sandy Recreation Site has re-opened after being closed while workers stabilized the bank southeast of the boat ramp. Visitors are asked to stay off the steep, highly-erodible slopes in order to help preserve the recent stabilization work.
            The improvement to the site was just one of many upgrades planned for recreation sites in the BLM’s Butte Field Office area this summer.

            White Sandy is a popular site with multiple uses, including camping, fishing, boating, swimming, picnicking and hiking. The recreation site, located on Hauser Lake about 15 miles northeast of Helena, has 32 campsites and a large day-use area.  White Sandy is $10 per night for camping with no day-use fees.
