“Indian Creek is a beautiful area that gets a lot of car camping attention.”

Varies. Check the Daniel Boone National Forest webpage for latest closure and opening news.
Family Friendly: When gated this is a great road for families and beginners as there are no steep grades and it is well maintained.
Indian Creek Road provides access to a large swath of National Forest outside the Red River Gorge proper. This area is popular with car campers primarily, but also with fisher-people, traditional rock climbers, and adventurous hikers.
From time to time the US Forest Service closes all or portions of this road and its two forks providing a nice, quiet, experience. When the gates are locked, the road is a great ride for families and beginners. This is also a great time to just ride and get away from everything.
When the gates are open I wouldn't recommend this road for families as there can be heavy motor vehicle traffic, especially on the weekends.
