We were the only campers on the lower level of the campground for two nights. It's a nice spot, but we moved the trailer across the road for the second night because the wind is intense there in the spring. The sites on the side of the road away from the reservoir, and up against the hillside, are less windy. That made sleeping easier. The basic pit toilets were clean and well-maintained. We camped at White Sandy Recreation Site in a Travel Trailer.

Price is half of the full price per night with an Intra-Agency NP pass. Other discounts available. Rated a 10 based on accuracy of services. Very clean, very wide sites. Fire pits at every site and lake front views almost everywhere. Beach is clean and available in season for swimming. Fishing seems to be the big draw! Boat ramp right at the campground. No utilities, WiFi, cell coverage or TV reception. Bring your generator but only use between 7am-10pm. We camped at White Sandy Recreation Site in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects senior NP pass. Wonderful BLM site with paved roads, level sites and good location. However, last 2 miles of the road to get here is dirt, but it's the Best dirt road I've ever seen! New residential property along the way and I bet it's all paved soon. Stayed here 3 nights. Very easy drive to Helena with good grocery and fuel. No phone service or TV at campsite. Sites are easy back-in with good space. We camped at White Sandy Recreation Site in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the nicest BLM or National Forest Service campground I have seen. Dry camping only but several water faucets are in the campground. Beautiful setting overlooking Hauser Lake. Sites are large, level, and spaced far apart. Roads are paved and big rig friendly. A few immature trees. Lots of green grass. A nice sandy beach is nearby. Senior Pass holders camp for $5 a day. If you don't mind boondocking, this is a very nice alternative to the more expensive RV parks in Helena. From Interstate 15 about seven miles north of Helena, take the Lincoln Road Exit (exit 200) and travel east for 5 miles to Hauser Dam Road. Turn left and continue for 3 miles to the entrance to White Sandy Recreation Site at coordinates N46° 44.6214' and W111° 53.3103' We camped at White Sandy Recreation Site in a Fifth Wheel.
