The Devil's Elbow Campground

The Devil's Elbow Campground is a popular, 42 site campground located on Hauser Lake between the Two Camps Vista Interpretive Site and the Clark's Bay day use area, about 15 miles east of Helena. There are boat slips, a boat dock, restrooms, a swimming area, a fish cleaning station (for the walleye, kokanee and trout you catch), a group picnic shelter, drinking water, an on-site manager and 42 camping units with fire rings, picnic tables and garbage collection. Everything is universally accessible.

Fees are charged from mid-May through mid-October but the site is open year-round.

Access: Get off the I-15 at exit 193 (Cedar Street) and go east on Washington Street past the airport entrance to Canyon Ferry Road. Turn right on Canyon Ferry Road and go about 1/2 mile, then turn left on York Road. Go about 12 miles down York Road through Lakeside until you come to the Devil's Elbow Campground entrance sign.
