Indian Camp Creek Park
Indian Camp Creek Park is St. Charles County's largest park at 603 acres. With more than 10 miles of multi-use trails (PDF) for hiking, biking, and equestrian use, Indian Camp Creek Park has become a popular destination for many outdoor enthusiast.
The park's unique Eco / Nature-themed 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.
A new 18-hole disc golf course was recently added in the park. The state-of-the-art course 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 plans include the development of the Toth Nature Preserve to protect the wildlife and native plant species found throughout the park.
