Indian Creek Group Campground

  

Indian Creek Campground is located in a high mountain valley surrounded by beautiful peaks at an elevation of 8,000 feet. The area is covered with aspens, sagebrush, and a few pines.  It is a favorite for group gatherings, with 7 group sites -- one accomodating 70 campers, five accomodating 50 each, and one that accomodates 30.

Potter Ponds are nearby and offer great canoeing and rainbow trout fishing, with scenic views from the shore. The expansive Arapeen ATV Trail System can be accessed close by. It has 350+ miles of designated, well-maintained trails for ATVs and OHVs and is suitable for all riding levels. Horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking are popular in the area as well.
