Indian Creek County Park is a small campground located near Boonville, California, and is situated under a mixed forest dominated by redwood trees on the banks of Indian Creek. The park is the only county park in Mendocino County that offers overnight camping. While the campground is located alongside the creek, only two of the campsites have direct creek access. The 10 campsites at Indian Creek are all fairly spacious and private and have access to bathrooms, picnic tables, and barbecue grills.

The campground has a host sometimes, but appears to be only loosely managed as reservations are not accepted, however the campground is rarely full. The campground is officially only open in the summer, beginning in April, but appears to be accessible year-round.
