Quigley Group Use Area use to be called McDonald Pass Group Use Area, and the names can be confusing as the old entrance still has a sign saying“McDonald Pass Group Use Area” The new and current entrance list the area as Quigley Group Use Area. What ever name you call it, this is a primitive group use area. You will find one vault toilet for the area and that is about it. Their is a loop for the group use area that at times is paved, but most is a dirt two track. Most of the pull offs in the area have become overgrown. You will not find any metal fire rings, several rock rings have been built. Their are no picnic tables here to use. The site has no water or trash service. The closest water will be at Cromwell Dixon Campground which you will need to drive to as it is two far to walk to. So if you have a group planning on using this site be prepared to bring everything except a toilet. Finding information about this group use area is hard as the Helena National Forest web page does not have anything listed for it. What I was able to find out is that the site is currently free, but the Forest Service has proposed that the fee go to$50 for the site. I stayed here about 8 years ago during a Boy Scout camp. During our stay we cleaned up the tree debris in the area, but since then the parking pads that we used have almost disappeared. This group use area is really suffering from lack of use and maintenance.
A great place to camp, hike, and horseback ride - not to mention cross country skiing!
