Indian Creek Campground

The Location

Indian Creek Campground is located in the northern part of Yellowstone National Park just 13 miles south of Gardiner Montana. The campground is very close to the Gallatin Mountains and has awesome views of Electric Peak. It is off the main road and is a quieter camping experience than some of the other campgrounds in the park.

The Area

Mammoth Hot Springs is about 8 miles north of Indian Creek Campground. Here you will find a service station, restaurants, a lounge, a coffee shop, a gift store, a general store with groceries and other supplies and many other amenities. The Gardiner River and many other small creeks are close by and provide many great fishing opportunities. Gardner’s Hole is nearby and offers wonderful wildlife viewing and great hiking opportunities. Be sure to check out the basalt columns of Sheepeater Cliff which are just a short bike ride or drive away.

The Campground

Indian Creek Campground is open from June 8, 2018, until September 10, 2018. Indian Creek Campground has 70 campsites and is located in a beautiful lodgepole pine forest. All campsites are available on a first-come-first-served basis so no reservations are needed. Each campsite has a fire pit with a grate and a picnic table. Food storage containers are available to keep the wildlife away from your food and are 22″ by 22″ by 48″. Because the bear activity is so common in this area, it is most important that you keep your food sealed away. The restrooms are vault toilets and drinkable water is available. The closest showers and laundry service are in Mammoth Village. You can check up-to-date campsite availability here: Yellowstone Campground Availability.
