Indian Camp Creek

A multi-use park that is open to mountain bikers, equestrians, and hikers, so please observe proper trail etiquette while enjoying the trails.

The first several miles of trail along the Big River are tight, twisty, and heavily wooded. Keep your eyes open, as it is in this area is where you are most likely to see, especially in the fall, the abundant wild turkey and deer. After crossing the road, you begin heading up and down the numerous ridges and ravines running through the park. The trails are combination of open-field crossings and wooded singletrack, consisting mainly of dirt, with a bit of rock mixed in. Depending on your location, it is possible to see numerous rock outcroppings, small ponds and historical relics, such as flint chippings from Indians, farm homesteads, and a family cemetery. More trails are being developed on a continuing basis, so follow the carsonite signage marking the trail.

Trailhead parking is at the first parking lot past the bridge. The entrance to the trail is in the field to the left of the restrooms, marked with white carsonite signage. A large Park map showing the trails is located at the kiosk near the equestrian parking lot (first gravel road to the right).

St. Charles County Parks operates a Trail Conditions Hotline detailing the current state of the trails in all of their parks. Please call 636-949-7475, opt # 4 to check trail conditions.

Directions

From Interstate 70, go north on Highway 40/61 for approximately seven miles to Dietrich Road (first left after passing W). Turn west on Dietrich Road for ¾ mile to the park entrance (on right).
