Grasshopper Campground

Area Status: Closed

Grasshopper Campground is the only developed campground in the Castle Mountains and a mere 11 miles from White Sulphur Springs. The 12 campsites sit above Grasshopper Creek on a scenic hillside. Grasshopper Campground usually closes in early December. Many hunters stay at Grasshopper Campground because it is one of the last campgrounds to close in the area. Hunters cannot hang game in the campground. The campground can only accommodate a maximum trailer length of 22 feet and is not suitable campers with large RVs.

Above the campground is access to a motorcycle trail open from December 1st through Oct 15th.

All campgrounds on the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest are first-come, first-served. Reservations are not available. Camping is limited to 16 consecutive days in one location. A campground fee is required. Please pay at the self-serve campground fee station. Campsites cannot be reserved by simply paying for the site; camper must be present. A food storage order is in effect from March 1st to December 1st to prevent human-bear conflicts on the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest. Store all unattended food and attractants properly. Please see Food Storage Order for specifics. Open and close dates can vary depending on snowfall conditions. Please call the local district office or check our website. Leashed dogs are welcome. Horses are not allowed in campgrounds. Motorized OHVs must stay on the campground road. The campgrounds include access to potable water during the warmer months, and all have at least one handicap accessible vault toilet. Each campsite has a fire ring and/or grill, and a picnic table. Even if water is unavailable, campground fees are still required.
