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.

I first found this campground as an escaped college student in 1966- fantastic setting with large and small wildlife all around, also a sense of former people who lived in the area- the Shoshone tribe and mid-1800's railroad camps. The hiking around the area is relaxing and fun, for example, on the north side of the Gardiner River around the... More

This is a fantastic campground if you have a tent and you want some peace and quiet. Although RVs are allowed - and in Yellowstone they are impossible to really get away from, it seems - they aren't allowed to use their generators and that seems to make a big difference in the noise level. There are two different loops,... More

With the exception of Slough Creek Campground, Indian Creek is the 2nd best campground in Yellowstone and a very close 2nd at that. It was quiet and your neighbors aren't stacked up right next to you. Indian Creek is a primitive campground so only water faucets, vault toilets and no showers but we dont mind. We showered at the Mammoth... More
