We had never been to Yellowstone nor camped in bear country. I really liked this campground. We stayed at Lizard Creek the first night but wanted to be closer to Mammouth and shorten our subsequent trip to Glacier, so we moved here. This year (2015) Yellowstone campgrounds are all sold out by mid to late afternoon. We got to Indian... More

Best run camp ground in Yellowstone! Amazing! Friendly and private! I can't say enough about our stay. Before finding this camp ground we tried others! This will be one we will come back to! Truly an amazing stay! Highly recommend it! Best part of checking in they were there to help and know how many space they had left!

I was fortunate enough to arrive at Indian Creek in time to be the very last person to get a campsite. I mean, the last space in the whole park. If you're lucky and get there very, very early or just move sites, I'd suggest a different campsite. The views aren't great. In fact, there is no view. Just trees.... More

Indian Creek is a really nice, excellently managed campground. We loved that it was generator free- which meant it was nice and quiet. Many of the sites on the outer sides of each loop have a fair amount of trees for privacy, but the sites on the inside of each loop were pretty exposed. As several other reviewers have commented,...

If you are trying to decide where to camp on the north side of Yellowstone, don't even think about Mammoth. Indian Creek is tons better as it's wooded and secluded as a campground should be. Mammoth is really for RVs and nt for tent camping. It's a beautiful drive down the hill to mammoth if you want to eat at... More

We stayed here one night after staying three nights at Lewis Lakes, and were relieved to find a very nice, well managed campground. Our campsite was private, surrounded by trees, and moderately sized. You could walk through the trees a ways behind the campsite and explore. We heard coyotes howling that night. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer.

We camped in an 5th wheel so we were limited, there are only a few sites made to handle our camper. No generators, which is great because it is quiet. All the sites we saw and the one we used were fairly level, asphalt pads. There were bear boxes, picnic table, and fire ring in each site which is nice.... More

I have found some of the most private campsites at Indian Creek. The hiking out the proverbial back door is magnificent. There are a number of beautiful trails along the creek and around the campground. The wetlands along the creek are a birder's paradise. But the gem of a hike is Big Horn trail which opens into amazing views of... More

We camped at this little gem with our grand-daughters for a week last summer and we all fell in love with this place. The camp ground is perfectly suited for tent and small pop-up camper type camping. It has 71 sites and is primitive. That means vault toilets and drinking water only. Showers (along with stores and other amenities) can... More

We stayed three nights in campground- we heard wolves or coyotes in the night, amazing view of stars, quiet- no loud rvs and close to beautiful creek. Really a special place.
