First time here. Stayed sept 15-19 2018. Elevation 6400 so expect cool evenings. Took gravel road out to Delmoe Lake for a picnic. Took numerous walks. Met a lot of nice people. Look forward to visiting again. Notes. Some broken glass found on some sites due to target shooting. Heard target shooting 3x in the distance during 4 ... more

Hung out for 8 days with another couple we had met last January in Quartsite, AZ. Livestock sometimes wanders in because this is open grazing lands. More people on the weekends. Had an altercation with some locals who claimed to be coming here over thirty years. They spent most of the weekend drunk and were loud andm played loud music ... more

“Free, scenic camping near Butte (but perhaps crowded)”

Reviewed Aug 19, 2018

Overall Rating

Homestake Pass is a popular point of entry into the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest for boaters, ATV/dirt bike riders, and campers. We stayed at the location described by Pauly with our 25' Airstream, which was nice and flat, with good views and marginal cell service on AT&T (better with our MIMO antenna). It’s almost exactly 0.5... more

“Fantastic Mountain Open Land”

Reviewed May 14, 2018

Overall Rating

My second experience taking a chance on open land, BLM, etc. The ratings by others were great and they weren't kidding. Coming off the Homestake Pass exit, turn north over the freeway (if going East). You'll get to a nice size parking lot with a public bathroom, on the East side of the road, and the railroad tracks up ahead. The di... more

Arrived right after a winter storm, so there was 6" of snow on the ground, none on roads tho. We are traveling inn a 32' ClassA, and if you miss the wide open space and cross the RR tracks, it'll be fun turning around! Not recommended to travel up the hill in a rig our size! But if you're traveling with any extra un towed car,.. it's w... more

“Close to butte and lots of open space ”

Reviewed Aug 03, 2017

Overall Rating

We arrived on a Tuesday so it was pretty empty. Only 4 other RV's and two of them left the next morning. We had plenty of space and the dogs were able to roam the entire property since we pretty much had the land to ourselves. We didn't have AT&T cell service here but drive 2-3 minutes and you will have service. We enjoyed our short st... more

After 2 days at the 2bars campground in Butte we found this place. This is open range so cows will come by but they are just added entertainment. The locals leave there RV's here and come on weekends and overnighters use it. TV Cell and 4G are all very good and very little highway noise. Its Friday and we are pulling out today as the p... more

Some noise from the nearby highway, garbage left behind by previous campers, and the cows scared the bejesus out of us (we had no idea they were there). But a great location and easy to get to.

We rolled into Butte and stayed at the KOA (I left a review for that separately) as I had called the BLM and they thought that a storm had a good chance of leaving snow up at Homestake Pass. After two days at KOA, and after the storm passed we headed up to HomeStake and it was beautiful, no snow at all. So after 3 nights in KOA w... more

“BLM campsite just off of I90”

This is a BLM location less than a mile off of I90 at Homestake Pass east of Butte, MT. Area is popular for off road bikes, MC's and 4 wheeling. Looks to be popular on the weekends. Area can accommodate any size rig. Road should be no issue and the turn into the flat area was smooth. Good shot on Google earth and you can see a... more
