Driving

The best access is along a graveled county road that crosses the dam of Nelson reservoir, and then proceeds west for two miles to Hewitt Lake. BLM maps provide the best assistance for finding the refuge, although state highway maps all show Nelson Reservoir located about 17 miles northeast of Malta, Montana.
