FCFS. This campground is less well-known so there aren’t as many people and it’s fairly easy to get a spot. We got there around 9 a.m. and had plenty to choose from. Lots of trees- perfect for hammocks. You have people kind of close, but spots are spaced out well so you still feel private. Fire pit, bear box, a picnic table at each site. And there’s bathrooms. There’s a river really close that we walked along and fished. And the camp hosts were really nice people! Firewood available at the store at the front.
Indian creek is probably my favorite campground out of all the Yellowstone camps. It felt more secluded and a lot less busy than the main ones offered in the park.
No light or noise pollution. We heard wolves and moose during the night. No flush toilets or showers, but those are available in the center of the park at guest services. Smaller RV and tent sites. No generators allowed and no electricity. Fires were allowed in rings. Located in a forested part of north Yellowstone Park
A great simple campground inside Yellowstone. we were there the weekend before July 4th and found a site easily. Many of the other campgrounds had fIlled early each mornIng. There are bear proof boxes in each site for your food items, be sure to use them. Tent camping is okay, and they have nice pads to set the tents up on in the sites. There’s vault (pit) toilets and no other hook ups for RVs.
Getting reservations at Yellowstone National Park is tricky, so unless you've managed to grab a spot one the exact right day about 6 months in advance, you'll be stuck trying to grab a "first-come, first-served" camp site. In larger campgrounds like Norris in Yellowstone, this means getting there around 6 or 7 am and hopefully getting lucky.
Indian Creek, on the other hand, still had one spot left around 11am when we got there. Looking at their booking calendar, that may have been a bit of a fluke for mid-week July (yesterday it says they booked up at 7:30 am), but it's definitely a better bet than other, more popular campgrounds.
Decent spots, not a ton of privacy, asboluetely beautiful waterflowers, meadows and creeks surrounding the campground. There's pit toilets instead of flush, which matches the cheaper price of $15.
In theory you can have 35-foot RVs here, and the road is nice enough they should be fine, but when we were there is was almost all tents and smaller vintage or canned hams. Generators are not allowed to run at all, so that might be a deciding factor keeping the bigger rigs away.
All-in-all, a nice enough spot if you want to try out the east side of Yellowstone and/or want to get away from the larger campgrounds with more difficult bookings.
I believe this is supposed to be the Indian Creek Campground in Yellowstone National Park (which would put it in Wyoming), so I'm going to put that review here.
This is one of the best campgrounds in Yellowstone. It is seculded, and recently renovated. It is close to Mammoth and everything on the North end, plus most people ignore it's existence. Unfortunately (or fortunately) you cannot reserve here.
