Meadow Creek Indian Camp is a free and primitive “campground” located in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest in Washington near the small town of Trout Lake. There are no services here, no picnic tables, no developed fire rings, no toilets. Meadow Creek Indian Camp is really just a boondocking campground on the side of the road.
A short history of Meadows Creek Indian Camp: The area was initially established by Native Americans as a place where tribal groups would gather to camp while harvesting huckleberries and other foods in the area. In more recent history it was established as a developed forest campground but has since weathered and deteriorated and returned back to its original natural state. Occasionally some Native Americans still camp here while gathering huckleberries in the nearby fields.
If you camp here please remember to pack out everything you pack in and enjoy the unique historical place you are camping.
