The price reflects a 50% Senior Pass discount on a full-hookup site, a ridiculously low amount to pay for a beautiful full-hookup site! This is another nice Corp of Engineer park. The only thing missing were views of the reservoir; only a few sites had distant views of the lake through the vegetation. Otherwise, you couldn't ask for anything nicer. The campground is a bit far from the major throughways to be a convenient overnight stop, but it is easy to find and the roads to the park are all good, paved roads. The campground is easy to navigate. There are two campground areas, the West Campground, that you come to first, and the East Campground. There is an entrance gate, but there was no attendant on duty when we arrived, so we found a non-reservable site, set up, and paid later. The West Campground sites (1 - 95) are all non-reservable, wonderful for those of us that like to travel more free-form. The East Campground (sites 96-175) is all reservable. Some sites are electric only, some also have water, and some are full hook-up sites. All have 50 amp service. Although there are water spigots located throughout the campground, if you have a dry camping site, the best place for filling a tank is at the dump station. They are all very well spaced; some have vegetation separating the sites. Our site was very level, but some are unlevel. We had weak Verizon signal at our site, but with a booster, could get voice and fast data. The signal varied considerably throughout the campgrounds. The gate attendant was very nice and extremely helpful. We would definitely come back and spend a week or so here. For $11 for full-hookup, it can't be beat. We camped at Indian Creek COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

It is quite a ways to shopping, so come well stocked. There is a marina just outside of the camping area with some basic supplies; they also have pontoon boats for rent. About 30 minutes away, Mark Twain Historic Site, within Mark Twain State Park, which has some great exhibits and his birth cabin, is well worth a visit.

Rate reflects senior discount. Very pretty park, remote with lots of trees and grassy areas. Large campground, 2 different areas, east and west, with 2 loops in each one. Camp sites are generously spaced and allow for privacy. Some sites are terraced with step downs to patio area. Table, fire ring and lantern pole in most. Electric was steady at 124 per leg, water pressure was 70psi. Sites vary as to whether there is electric only, or full hook up. There are some community spigots placed around. Did not use the bathhouses here, but saw cleaning crew there each day and staff checking them throughout the day. Fairly level for walking and biking. Due to high water in the lake, the beach and walking trails were closed during our visit. Plenty of deer wandering around the campground and bird watching is good. Bring your supplies, a good 15 mile drive to nearest grocery store, nearest WM is in Hannibal. There is a small marina here with a little store and snack bar. Staff on the park was visible and friendly. Gate house hours are erratic, but saw camp hosts putting out reserved tags occasionally. Park stayed quiet even over a busy weekend. Drive to the Dam Visitors Center, worth the trip, nice displays and great views of the lake and spillway. Nice memorial to Vietnam Veterans. We would stay here again. We camped at Indian Creek COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Hannibal worth visiting, visit the Visitors Center at the dam. Go to the Mark Twain SP across the lake and visit the Mark Twain memorial. Great museum. A short drive down the road will bring you to Florida, the original site of Mark Twain's birthplace. There is a small winery there. There is an old covered bridge in west of Paris MO which is great to visit.

The rate reflects our senior discount. Very pretty campground that is better suited to smaller rigs. We had to select from only three available sites for our 35' rig and we could only fit in one due to our length and three slides. The site, #5, was very sloped and we had to unhook our truck for just overnight to get our rig even close to level. We saw very few level sites in the entire campground. It's a very popular place and was almost full even though it was well after Labor Day. Reservations would probably be very helpful. The campground is located about 14 miles off the main highway but as is typical of most COE campgrounds it was worth the drive. We camped at Indian Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice facility (as most COE parks are), and for $9.00 per night with a senior pass discount it is one of the best values around. All roads and sites are paved. Most sites will require leveling. It is approximately 12-13 miles south of Monroe City, but worth the drive. We camped at Indian Creek COE in a Motorhome.

This was our first time in a COE campground and we are impressed! Our site is >100 ft long and totally private. The rate shown reflects the federal senior pass discount. I know from the reservation screens that there will be lots of people here on the weekend, but at mid-week we are virtually alone. We stayed on site 122 which would be great for families; very close to the playground and bathrooms. The only complaint was that we couldn't get quite level. The sites and roads are paved and are heavily wooded; we couldn't get a TV satellite lock at ours. Verizon cell service is adequate and we were able to use our air card to get online even though the speeds were slow. We would come back in a heartbeat. We camped at Indian Creek COE in a Motorhome.

Very nice COE park about 28 miles from Hannibal, MO. Very spacious full hook up sites available with 50 amp service. They have sites that you can reserve in advance, or quite a few sites that are available on a first come first served basis. We stayed in a reserved site and as it was the week before Labor Day weekend, it was almost totally empty and very quiet. The rate shown reflects the Golden Age Passport senior rate. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Indian Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Indian Creek Recreation Area For those who frequent Corps of Engineer campgrounds, you know how nice they are. Indian Creek meet all of the accepted standards. The areas and sites are well maintained. The facilities are excellent. The registration personnel are friendly and informative. This facility is excellent for those who like a lake environment, quiet, and beautiful views. Although the quiet is lacking from Friday afternoon until Sunday evening. I was in spot 32 and had that area to myself during the week. The campground and the access road are great for leisure or hard bicycle riding. I wish I had such a campground to stay at on all of my stops. We camped at Indian Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

All the previous reviews are spot-on! This is a very nice campground. The hosts and park rangers were very friendly and helpful. Our spot was big, nice gravel area around fire ring and picnic table. We did a lot of hiking with our dog. Only bad thing was the ticks. They were small and we were covered with them. Fishing was great. We would definitely go back again. We had a reservation, but early in the year it isn't necessary. There are non-reservable spots and the spring the campground is not full. We camped at Indian Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

VERY nice campground, and the geezer rate of $10 for holders of the Golden Age Passport can't be beat. (If you don't have one, get one - must be 62). Wooded, deer everywhere. We saw quail, turkey, woodchuck, everywhere. While some sites are reservable, many are not, and for a change, they aren't all the less desirable ones. Some sites are full hookups, some are electric only. Water and dump station available. Staff super nice. This campground is beautifully maintained. Kudos to the Corps of Engineers. We camped at Indian Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We love this campground and it's back to nature feel. Lots of woods and for the most part quiet. We camp at Indian Creek a lot. It is our preferred campground. Lots of nature surrounding this campground and it's not uncommon to see many deer. We camped at Indian Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice wooded campground with good water access for boating and fishing. Campsites were small for someone with slideouts and parking with a boat and camper is almost impossible at a single site. We camped at Indian Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.
