The Indian Creek area of Bears Ears National Monument has gained international recognition for its extraordinary natural beauty and recreational opportunities. The Indian Creek canyon opens to a broad valley rimmed by Wingate Sandstone cliffs known for world-class rock climbing. Prominent geologic features include Lavender Mesa, Bridger Jack Mesa, and North and South Six Shooter Peaks. This spectacular setting and rich archeological resources provide visitors with recreational opportunities such as rock climbing, camping, cultural resource viewing, scenic photography, and off-highway vehicle (OHV) touring on designated routes.


Natural Features

The campground is located along the banks of Indian Creek. Creek flow is intermittent, and except for spring or immediately after precipitation, the creek bed is typically dry. Cottonwood trees line the banks of the creek and provide shade at some campsites. A small sandstone cliff lines the west side of the campground.
