Indian Creek Campground is located at the edge of Rimrock Lake in the Wenatchee National Forest in Washington's North Cascades Range. The campground's proximity to high alpine lakes, lush forests and towering peaks in nearby wilderness areas make it a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts.
Indian Creek Campground offers outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to hike, fish, ski, raft and enjoy a multitude of recreational activities throughout the year.
Beautiful rivers and streams, high elevation lakes and reservoirs provide an endless number of fishing opportunities for the experienced and beginning angler. Opportunities abound to pursue or view the legendary salmon and steelhead, several species of trout or a variety of warm-water fish.
River enthusiasts enjoy whitewater rafting trips on one of the many scenic rivers in the area. The Tieton River is especially exciting in September when the Bureau of Land Reclamation floods the Tieton Valley, releasing fast and furious water.
The campground offers several standard sites, perfect for both tent and RV camping. Picnic tables, vault toilets and drinking water are provided. No electrical hookups are available.
Rimrock Lake, adjacent to the campground and along the course of the Tieton River, is surrounded by rugged mountain terrain, wetlands and diverse conifer forests.
The area around the campground supports wildlife such as mountain goats, native fish and migratory birds. Endangered and threatened species, including American bald eagles, northern spotted owls, gray wolves and grizzly bears also find havens in nearby areas.
Precipitation varies greatly thoughout the area, ranging from approximately 140 inches along the Cascade Crest to only 10 inches along the eastern edge. Visitors to the area can expect many days of warm, sunny weather in the summer, and plenty of snow in the winter.
Boulder Cave National Recreation Trail is one of the most popular places in the Naches District. Visitors can walk the accessible trail along the river or explore Boulder Cave. Interpretive signs along the trail explain the geology, plants, animals and fire history of the area.
Hikers may want to traverse a portion of the spectacular Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), one of the world's premier National Scenic Trails. This trail showcases some of North America's most fantastic scenery as it winds its way from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington.

We love camping around White Pass WA because it is so close to great hikes and White Pass Ski Resort. We have actually camped here in our RV and then went up skiing in the morning. Mt. Rainier hikes are also about an hour away from here which is really nice as well. You can’t beat hiking in that area. One hike I love is Round Mountain. That is only about a 10min drive from this campground. The road is gravel and pretty bumpy and long up to this hike. The views are gorgeous, though. There is also bear creek mountain hike which again, the road is pretty long and bumpy. Would recommend a higher clearance car. My husband has also stayed here in the fall and hunts in the mornings and evenings. He says this is a great location to stay. The campground is good, small spots and VERY busy in the summer! Reserve your spot ahead of time would be my recommendation. Rimrock Lake is very close, so if you have a boat I would recommend bringing that. We love bringing our kayaks and heading out on the lake.
