Other tributaries are Steep Creek, Fall Creek, and Vista Creek. The original gold discovery on Nugget Creek was on what is now called Middle Basin but was known to the miners as Sunrise Basin. The Treadwell Mining Company built a hydro-electric plant, utilizing the waters of Nugget Creek, in 1913 and 1914. The plant, which has been closed since 1944, is reached by a spur from the Mendenhall Loop Road and a trail leads from the end of this spur to Middle Basin on Nugget Creek.
