General Information


Travel west from White Sulphur Springs on Highway #360.  About 1.6 miles from town the highway makes a sharp curve to the right: proceed straight onto the gravel road.  After traveling 6.5 miles the gravel road forks at the entrance to a ranch; stay to the right. As you drive the next 7.5 miles to the Helena Forest boundary the road becomes more primitive.  Within 1 mile of the Forest boundary, Road #8961 turns to south. Follow Road #8961 two miles to Gypsy Lake Campground.
