Indian Creek Recreation Area
(near Markleeville in Alpine County, California)
More than 7,000 acres of public lands are managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for public outdoor recreational use. Paved access is provided by Airport Road, off State Highway 89 midway between Woodfords and Markleeville, California.
Improvements at Indian Creek include a fully-developed campground with restrooms with flush toilets and hot showers, a dump station, boat ramp, an environmental study area and a system of hiking trails.
Summers are generally warm and dry with daytime temperatures occasionally reaching 90 degrees Fahrenheit, while evenings are cool and comfortable. Winter brings heavy snow at times, and temperatures can drop well below freezing. When this occurs, the reservoir freezes over.
