Indian Creek Airfield
One of the busiest airfields in Idaho during the summer months is the backcountry air strip at Indian Creek Guard Station. Located 25 miles downriver from the Boundary Creek put-in, Indian Creek becomes the put-in of choice once the water level drops.
Indian Creek boasts an extra long, unpaved airstrip. In the early morning hours, planes loaded with hundreds of pounds of rafting gear and guests arrive. Boaters then spend the next hour or two hauling all that gear down long, wooden steps to the river.
Without airstrips like the one at Indian Creek, the boating season on the Middle Fork would virtually end in August.
