Devil's Elbow Campground on Hauser Lake offers a wealth of water-based recreation opportunities and is located about 15 miles east of Helena and adjacent to Clark’s Bay Day-use Area and Two Camps Vista Interpretive Site. This popular 42-unit campground is located mid-way along the shore of Hauser Lake. The lake (actually a reservoir) provides year-round opportunities for fishing (trout, walleye and kokanee salmon) along with excellent boating and wildlife viewing. Group camping reservations and reservations for Loop A are now available exclusively for reservations on recreation.gov. Other portions of the campground will remain as first-come, first-serve.
This is a nice large campground. Large sites with large parking areas. Tent only area has covered picnic tables. Boat launch for those wanting to enjoy the Hauser Lake. A short paved trail leads to a small swim area with a sheltered picnic table. A paved trail goes around most of the campground and trails lead to the nearby Clark's Bay recreation area which has a large swim area and volleyball courts and shelters. A trail also leads to Two Camp Vista with plenty of information on the Lewis and Clark journey through the area. If you like to geocache, several are available in the area.
