Slough Creek is a major tributary of the Lamar River. It rises in the Absaroka/Beartooth Wilderness, north of Yellowstone Park, and flows southward through elk and bison-filled meadows and short canyons. This beautiful drainage has at times been the range of the Rose Creek, Druid Peak, Geode Creek, and currently the Slough Creek Pack.

Slough Creek is one of the richest wildlife areas of the Park.
