Montana State Parks and the Little Shell Chippewa Tribe are moving closer to the transfer the FWP’s lease of Hell Creek State Park from the state to the Fort Peck Reservation. A memorandum of understanding was signed in early October which officially began the process. The tribe is expected to open its reservation system for the 2022 season before year’s end. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers owns the site at Fort Peck Lake.

The current plan is to have FWP’s Parks and Recreation Board review and vote on the lease assignment at its Dec. 9 meeting and send the recommendation to the Corps, who must give final approval.
