Natural features you'll find at Indian Creek Campground.
Drop some Indian Creek Campground knowledge on us.
This primitive campground is first-come, first-serve and you'll be more likely to find availability here than other popular spots such as Norris Campground. And, since it’s not likely you’ll have the time or energy to explore all of Yellowstone National Park, here are our favorite geothermal areas: Grand Prismatic Spring at Midway Geyser Basin, the mud pots at Artists Paintpot, Old Faithful and other geysers, Sulphur Caldron, the Mud Volcano area, and the terraces at Mammoth Hot Springs.
Love, love, love Yellowstone! Indian Creek is a 1st come 1st serve campground and they really mean it. We arrived and stayed in a hotel the night prior (planned because we drove so far) and arrived early in the morning to reserve our spot (<8 am). People come early to pick their spots. Each of these campsites has a bear proof storage box, picnic table. There are very strict rules to follow for yourself and future campers. No food left out. They will give you a list and it's also laminated on the picnic table.
It seems to have its own weather at any given time! so pack for ALL the elements including hail, snow, rain, lightning.. and it pounds the ground there if there is lightening so pre book a hotel in town too just in case your hailed out or lightening starts. If you dont you'll be without a place to stay for miles and miles because campgrounds empty into town when it occurs BUT! Its absolutely gorgeous, fun, fresh air and Buffalo, Elk and Bears roam free and abundantly out there its absolutely worth it.
