Overview

Overview

Indian Creek lies on the northern banks of Mark Twain Lake. It is the largest campground on the lake with 215 standard campsites, plus additional non-electric and tent-only sites.

The lake is named for the beloved writer and humorist, Mark Twain, who was born just south of the lake in Florida, Missouri.

Natural Features:

Mark Twain Lake is sourced by the Salt River in northeast Missouri. The Clarence Cannon Dam sits on the eastern edge of the lake, providing flood control and hydroelectricity to the region, in addition to an extensive habitat for wildlife.

Recreation:

Boating is convenient with Indian Creek's public boat ramp. Bass fishing and hunting are also popular.

Facilities:

Indian Creek provides four recreation areas: a public boat ramp, group campground, day-use area and the standard campground.

The group camp provides 25 electric campsites, group shelter, restroom, shower and playground. The Day-Use Area provides group shelter, picnic sites and playground.

The campground offers 190 campsites, 20 primitive hike-in campsites, showers, restrooms, playgrounds, a fish cleaning station, boat ramp, beach, hiking trails and pay phone.

Nearby Attractions:

While visiting the area, tour the birthplace of the world-famous humorist and writer Mark Twain in the nearby Mark Twain State Park.

The David C. Berti Shooting Range is located below the dam.
