Indian Creek Campground
Reviewed August 27, 2009

The campground was so nice and quiet and not even close to close even on the weekends. almost every site offered great privacy as the whole campground is wooded. Camp Host was friendly and informative. ***Great campground for tent campers.*** We heard coyotes every night but on the second night we were there we also got to hear a small group of wolves there was near by. Several campers even got up before day break and were able to spot them and watch them from a distance before they moved off again. Showers are a mere 10 min drive to Mammoth, and while you are close to Mammoth Hot Springs you are also close to Norris Geyser Basin, tons of hiking, plenty of fishing, wildlife spotting and photographic opportunities. The best deal in America to see North Yellowstone for $12 a night. Of course with the cheaper fees means only pit toilets but at least they were clean and every other day the staff would come around and add some chemicals in them which would help the smell always associated with pit toilets. We will returning this is nice camp spot in the future, because of the economy we were unsure whether we could afford a camping trip anywhere this year - but this nice quiet inexpensive primitive campground saved our wedding anniversary - thank you Yellowstone!

I don't recommend this site for RVs there was only realistically 3 or 4 spots where a camper/rv would fit and be easy to park well and they were taken and generators are not allowed at all. We have a camper at home and if we would've brought it instead we would've stayed at Mammoth Campground as it is much more well suited for RVs. If you do happen to have a truck camper and have no need to run your generator this would be an ideal campground though.

Also I wish the "Ranger Talks" were offered at this campground - but we were told because of budget cuts Indian no longer hosts the evening Ranger Talks. Because of this most folks with kids stayed at other campgrounds that offered them. However I rather enjoyed the lack of children.

Also it is important to note that if you are tent camping all of your food will need to be stored in your car or a bear box. If it is warm outside it will be hot in your car, if you store your food in a hot car - you will need to plan trips to Mammoth or another area of the park to get ice daily.

This small campground is, in my opinion, Yellowstone's best-kept secret. Rarely full, this small camground is not run by the big concessionaire, Xterra, that runs all the big campgrounds in the park. This campground is in a great location, near lots of hiking. The campground even has hiking trails in and around it that go back fifty or sixty years. Views of the mountains in many sites. Vault toilets, water in spigots, no frills, but a great, great experience.
