Indian Creek Campground is located close to Sheepeater Cliff in the northern part of the park between Norris and Mammoth Hot Springs. The campground is open from mid-June to mid-September.

This generator-free campground is one of the more primitive and smaller campgrounds in the park. It is near the base of the scenic Gallatin mountain range with breathtaking views of Electric Peak to the north. Nearby Gardner's Hole offers great wildlife viewing opportunities. This campground offers easy access to great fishing and hiking. The campground is quiet, off the beaten path, with great view of the night sky.

The beautiful, basalt columns of Sheepeater Cliff are within a short drive of the campground. Or lace up your hiking boots for nearby Big Horn Pass. There are wheelchair accessible sites and vault toilets. A general store, restaurant, and showers are located eight miles north in Mammoth Hot Springs.

Its 70 sites fill quickly in the summer on a first-come, first-served basis.
