We love Indian Creek Campground! The one advice I would give is NOT to follow your GPS when trying to arrive at the campground. It will more than likely send you down a gravel road that is extremely treacherous. We were told about this, but forgot and decided to chance it. BAD PLAN! In our diesel Chevy it was not... More

I took my family and my father in law to Indian Creek for a week and we loved it. We stayed in one of the cabins which was very clean and had a nice screened in porch with rocking chairs as well as a deck. The sound of the creek running was wonderful. The staff was very nice and helpful.... More

The campground was great - clean camp sites and bathrooms, the campground is somewhat small compared to others we passed (good in our opinion), the property seems well maintained, the tent sites had some privacy with most right on the creek, the staff were all very friendly, other campers seemed nice, no lowlifes. The location was great - our site... More

Loved the campground. It was very clean and an overall nice place. The negatives are that the owners were not nice at all. In fact, they were rude. In addition, the campsites were a little close together and we were told there was a lot of trout for fishing yet we caught (nor saw) any fish.

Lovely private campground near the Smokies. We passed a number of mediocre campgrounds on the drive, and got a little worried. We were pleasantly surprised when we reached Indian Creek and our spot (65). It was gorgeous -- right by a creek, plenty of space and not too close to neighbors. It was incredibly quiet, aside from the noise of... More

As we headed up Indian Bunches Road, I grew increasingly nervous. Every campground we passed looked like an RV parking lot with a few trees. When we got to Indian Creek, the spots to the left, along the larger creek, looked better, but still very close together. Our site on the other side of the campground, however, was lovely. It...

This was a great place to stay! We went tent camping here for a nice extended weekend. The amenities were nice and clean. The trout fishing was very awesome and the owners and staff couldn't have been better! I was a little concerned about how close our spot was to some of the others, but that wasn't an issue once...

We tent-camped here for two nights. We found it to be a lovely campground. Tips: - Bring a tarp or a good rain fly - The sites are gravel, so make sure you have a sleeping pad Pros: - Cheap firewood - Site was next to a creek (deep enough for kids to wade in) - Impressively clean bathrooms -...

We stayed here for a few days while we were touring the Smokies. The sites were cute and relatively well laid out. But- they were fairly close together and ours wasn't level (sleeping was awkward with my feet higher than my head- RV). The creek gave wonderful ambiance! I didn't even have a single bar on my phone, but the... More

This is my second time camping here. I brought my wife here for her first car camping experience. When she saw some of the other campgrounds further down the mountain, I could see the concern on her face. Then, we arrived and she immediately fell in love with Indian Creek. The owners have done a really great job of making... More
