Overview

If you're interested in discovering the Ozarks' raw natural beauty in its purest form, look no further than Indian Creek Road! Indian Creek Road may seem like just another gravel road at first, but it most certainly is not. It only takes about 1/2 of a mile to realize the serenity and soothing nature that Indian Creek Road provides. As you work your way down the switchbacks under the marvelously captivating forest canopy and after the first few stream crossings there's no doubt you'll want to travel this road time and time again. The forest canopy continues throughout a large majority of the trip and the sounds of the forest let you know it is alive, from the birds chirping to the soothing sounds of Indian Creek flowing in the valley below to the sounds of the coyotes howling at night. Indian Creek Road has a couple of excellent primitive camping areas with access to the creek that will not disappoint! The area around AR-123 is an amazing place to explore in the Ozark National Forest and with the growing popularity of overlanding on the rise, Indian Creek Road makes a fantastic place to set up a base camp. You're definitely going to want to drop this one in the Ozark National Forest bucket!
