Creek Stewart: Survival Expert


Visit Creek’s personal web-site here:


My name is Creek Stewart.  I founded Willow Haven Outdoor.

My philosophy at Willow Haven Outdoor is very simple.  Create something amazing and people will come.

I’ve studied and practiced survival from a young age.  My experience comes from 1000’s of hours in the field practicing the skills I teach.  I teach from experience, not books.  I am a student of survival and self-reliance myself.  I don’t claim to know everything.  I am constantly learning – a necessary quality of any worthy teacher.

Willow Haven Outdoor is the culmination of the last 12 years of my professional life.  All of my life experiences in survival, business, and customer service have led me to this point.  Willow Haven is one of the most unique Survival Facilities in the world and I look forward to training with you here in the near future.


Soon after I published my 1st Survival Manual, I conducted my first Survival Clinic at the age of 21.

15 Years later, I now own a fully functional Survival Training Facility – Willow Haven Outdoor.  Our 10,000 sq. ft. Willow Haven Lodge sits on an amazing 21 acres in Central Indiana.
