DO NOT USE GPS TO TRAVEL TO HOMESTAKE LODGE. THE LODGE IS NOT PROPERLY LOCATED ON CERTAIN DEVICES AND THE SUGGESTED ROUTE MAY INCLUDE TRAVEL ON A ROAD THAT IS NOT OPEN IN THE WINTER AND IS VERY ROUGH IN THE SUMMER. GOOGLE AND APPLE MAPS OFTEN HAVE OUR LOCATION MISPLACED AND THEY PROVIDE UNDRIVEABLE DIRECTIONS.
FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS BELOW:
It is a very easy, quick and safe drive to the lodge. Homestake Lodge is located just three miles off the I-90 Homestake Pass exit 233. Drive times from Bozeman and Helena are about 1 hour to 1 hour and fifteen minutes. Missoula is just 2 hours away, and Butte is only a 10 mile drive away. Once you get off the Homestake exit, head to the south side of I-90 and turn onto FS 240. This will be straight off the ramp coming from the Butte direction, and it will be a right off the ramp and then a left turn after crossing over the interstate overpass coming from the Bozeman direction. FS 240 road is in the opposite direction from Homestake Lake/Campground, and Lake Delmoe. DO NOT drive towards the lakes or you will be off on an adventure. At the beginning of FS 240, you will see a sign after the cattle guard that says "Homestake Lodge 3 miles". Drive down FS 240 for 3 miles. After 3 miles, you will go under the big electrical transmission lines and there will be a driveway on your right with another Homestake Lodge sign. This will be the road into Homestake Lodge. Call us if there is any confusion.
In the winter, 4WD will make it in with no problems. 2WD vehicles with good snow tires normally have no problems. In the later winter months when we get warm days, 2WD vehicles sometimes have difficulty on the last hill into the lodge. If this is the case, pull off to the side and give us a call. We always have equipment that can get you in without any problems.
Chris plows the road from the lodge out to the interstate whenever it snows over an inch or so. The road is normally in very good shape. Always feel free to call us though if you have any concerns. 406-585-8052
