Indian Springs can be found nestled among a mature cedar forest, providing overnight guests with wonderful, rustic scenery.
Thirty-five total sites are available in Indian Springs, all of which are tent specific. A few of these sites are removed from the main camping areas and are meant as walk-in sites for guests looking to have a truly primitive camping experience. For the central sites, restrooms and drinking water access can be found just inside the campground's main entrance. If you bring a dog along for your overnight stay, make sure you have them on a leash at all times during your stay.
Indian Springs is located on the north bank of the South Yuba River, which means it's a great place for fishing. Anglers generally enjoy this sport from the shoreline, with rainbow trout being the most common species found here. If you're coming to fish, make sure to bring all of your equipment as fishing rentals aren't available here. As in all California bodies of water, a fishing license is required before you drop a line. Canines are free to accompany fishers, provide they're on a leash and aren't disruptive to other guests.
If you'd like to take a hike, the historic California Emigrant Trail runs parallel to the river and is easily accessed by Indian Springs patrons. A few other trails can be found in the surrounding areas, all of which are free for the public to explore. If you're taking your canine companion along for the journey, make sure you have them on a 6-foot leash or shorter while taking care of any messes they might leave behind on the ground.
Guests who'd like to escape the summer heat can enjoy a popular swimming hole located just off the Yuba River. This area is completely unsupervised and unregulated, so if you're going for a splash or two, it's at your own risk.
