The BLM Log Gulch and Departure Point campgrounds on Holter Lake have been evacuated and are closed until further notice. The closure will stay in place through at least this Sunday, after which officials will evaluate the situation.
Two other campgrounds, the Holter Lake and Holter Dam campgrounds, at the north end of the Holter Lake, remain open to the public.
The Black Beach fire started southeast of Log Gulch Campground Tuesday afternoon.
For more information on the closure, call the BLM’s Butte Field Office at (406) 533-7600.
