You're right about White Butte being in the middle of nowhere. There are several hotels in Dickinson, which is 55 miles from White Butte. That is probably the best place to hold a convention. There are also quite a few campgrounds out there for the camping crowd. Theodore Roosevelt N/P is nearby as well, which is nice added attraction. This could all work assuming the HP gets cleaned up. I definitely wouldn't recommend holding the Konvention there unless the owners agree to some improvements though. The HP in its current state is pitiful.
