Indian Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"In 1978 a college student named Pete Fromm spent the winter at Indian Creek campground, watching over the local forest service facilities. He unforgettably described that winter in the 1993 book Indian Creek Chronicles: A Winter in the Bitterroot Wilderness. Today’s visitor will arrive in the summer, not the winter, but otherwise may find the area similar to Fromm’s description. The camp is located at the confluence of Indian Creek and the Selway River; a fish hatchery was built here in 1964 (this was what Fromm mainly was sent to oversee).

Indian Creek is located in the deep folds of valleys in the Sawtooth Range. This is a very primitive jumping- off spot for hunters and fishermen, with almost no services available. Don’t expect drinking water here (other than what you might try from the creek, with a proper filter). This is almost as remote as it gets."
