Located 20 minutes away from the mountainous city of Selby and under 40 minutes from rural Herreid, Indian Creek Recreation Area is a peaceful retreat in the Great Plains. Once traveled by the famous explorers Lewis and Clark in 1804, the area is a must-see for history and nature lovers. To the east, west, and north of the park, you’ll see rolling hills, and towards the south, the picturesque blue-green Lake Oahe. The lake makes for excellent fishing and paddleboarding and curves its way in and around the land, providing scenic hiking trails to all Indian Creek Recreation Area campers.
Conveniently open year-round, the park has three divergently splendid hiking trails, a marina with fish-cleaning services, guide services, and much more. While visiting the Sunshine State, you’ll have the opportunity to glide your canoe or kayak through Lake Oahe, surrounded by vibrant maple, oak, aspen, and fascinating paper birch trees. Or snap that perfect fishing photo of your largemouth bass while on a large rock on the shore. Whatever your heart desires, search for an RV in Walworth County today to reconnect with nature.
Hiking is a popular activity at Indian Creek Recreation Area as there are three different trails to choose from. Just about a mile long, The Turkey Run Trail curves along Lake Oahe to offer lovely lake views on a freshly mowed grass path. While on the trail, you’ll have the option to either stay and watch wildlife or continue onto the more difficult Prairie Falcon Trail. Just over a mile long, the exciting pathway offers ample opportunity for birding or biking, then connects to the final trail, Orchard Oriole. With under a mile of easy gravel to walk on, the Orchard Oriole Trail ends at a colorful playground for the kids to play on and a picturesque view of Lake Oahe.
Comfortably situated in the bay of the park is a privately owned and operated marina. The marina offers a myriad of fishing services, from inexpensive fish cleaning to ice-fishing shack rentals. Didn’t bring a boat in your RV rental? Not to worry; the marina has got you covered with numerous boat rental options. If you’re looking to enjoy some serious fishing but don’t know where to start, you can rent a guide service. Fishing includes big walleyes, bass, crappies, catfish, tiger muskie, and much more.
Canoeing, kayaking, and paddleboarding are all offered at Indian Creek Recreation Area and will be one experience you won’t want to miss.

Here, you’ll catch a glimpse of what life might have been like for Lewis and Clark in the early 1800s.

Playgrounds are close by and most of the campsites offer direct access to the lake. Gravel walkways are conveniently sprinkled from your site to the main features of the park. If you're traveling in a large campervan rental, book one of the pull-through sites. Become one with nature as you relax with a morning cup of coffee and book or take a leisurely bike ride near the picture-perfect Lake Oahe.
If you love the fact that Lewis and Clark explored the same land that you're visiting, then you won’t regret the 20-minute trek to the Sitting Bull and Sacagawea Monument in Mobridge.
