Staff Reports

Indian Creek Reservoir Campground in Alpine County will open at 8 a.m. April 2.

Fees for camping will remain the same as they have been since 2005 and are similar with other comparable facilities in the area.

Indian Creek Campground is one of the best federal campground values in the Sierra Nevada with hot showers, flush toilets, an RV sanitary dump station, paved roads and parking sites as well as bear-proof storage lockers at each site.

A BLM maintenance technician and camp hosts are on-site. Other facilities at Indian Creek Reservoir include a boat launching area, day use picnic area, three loop interpretive trail system and over eight miles of hiking trails.

The main camp area has 19 sites that accommodate RV and tent campers on a non-reservation basis.

Six of these 19 are considered “double” occupancy sites since they have two parking spots, two tent pads and two picnic tables.

The walk-in tent area, located south of the main camp area, has 10 sites that can accommodate up to 15 tents on pads on a non-reservation basis.

Four of the 10 tent sites are considered “double” occupancy sites since they have two tent pads and two picnic tables. Sanitary facilities in the area include vault toilets and potable water.
