Indian Camp Creek Park

Indian Camp Creek Park Lake Update as of 8:35 p.m., Aug. 21, 2019

Park Update: Late this afternoon, the St. Charles County Parks Department closed the lake at Indian Camp Creek Park for water testing due to a report from a citizen who thought they observed blue-green algae. Parks Department staff took water samples to send to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and the University of Missouri Extension for further testing. Preliminary review of the samples by Parks staff indicate there is not blue-green algae, but the lake will be closed as a precaution until the test results are in.

Please note: This DOES NOT affect Indian Camp Creek. The creek will remain open.

Updates will be posted on this Facebook page, and on our Rainout Line at stccparks.org and at 636-707-0011. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

About the Park

Amenities

Indian Camp Creek Park is St. Charles County's largest park at 603 acres. With more than 10 miles of multi-use trails for hiking, biking, and equestrian use, Indian Camp Creek Park has become a popular destination for many outdoor enthusiast.

The park's unique Eco Playground is an attractive spot for children to gather and play during the hot summer months. The exclusive group camping area is open year around and is the perfect facility for large groups, organizations, scouts and other group outings. Climb to the top of the restored silo, which serves as an observation tower, and discover the beautiful prairies, vast wooded hills, and protected habit found throughout the park.

The 18-hole state-of-the-art disc golf course in the park features long and short tee pads at each hole, as well as 3 pin placements which will be rotated throughout the year.

Situated at the confluence of Big Creek and Indian Camp Creek, fishing is plentiful. A large lake on the property is also stocked with bluegill, bass, and catfish. Visit the historical Cannon family cemetery, which has been preserved on park property to honor the region's history. Some of the headstones in the historical cemetery date back to the early 19th Century.

Another historical interpretive site to visit in the park is a "ghost structure" display of the original log cabin believed to have been built in the late 1800s.

Future Development

Future plans include the development of the Toth Nature Preserve to protect the wildlife and native plant species found throughout the park.
