DARBY, Mont. -

The Bitterroot National Forest will close a campground, a rental cabin and a lookout tower this summer in order to save money.
Another campground will also temporarily close due to hazardous trees and a third will have its water turned off.
Darby District Ranger Chuck Oliver tells the Ravalli Republic that the moves are driven by the budget.
The campground that will be closed is the 11-campsite Warm Spring Campground on the Sula District. The Medicine Point Lookout in the same district also will be closed.
In the West Fork District, the forest will close the Horse Heaven Cabin.
