The ample shade and fresh smell of cedar and pine trees at Indian Springs Campground are sure to please any treehugger. There is a bit of noise from the nearby road, but you’ll hardly notice when you’re floating beneath the trees in the campground swimming hole.

The ample shade and fresh smell of cedar and pine trees at Indian Springs Campground are sure to please any treehugger. There is a bit of noise from the nearby road, but you’ll hardly notice when you’re floating beneath the trees in the campground swimming hole. There are plenty of walk-in tent sites here, along with standard sites and a few for smaller trailers. Each site offers a fire pit, picnic table and all sites but the walk-ins have paved parking too (luxurious!). Restrooms and water are easily accessible too, so you’ll be able to set up camp quickly and spend more time givin’ out tree snuggles.

"A bit of noise from the nearby road?" Seriously, Highway 80 is louder than my obnoxious apartment neighbors. Incessant roar all night, punctuated with occasional train racket (with whistle). Not my idea of a peaceful weekend.

That said, the swimming hole and waterfalls are really special and the campground is decent and not crowded, even on Labor Day weekend. Site #9 was private and prettier than a lot of the others, though near the road (not that it matters--it's deafening everywhere).

There are amazing hikes nearby, so if you can stand the noise it's totally worth it. We lit a fire, put on some tunes, opened a bottle of wine, and felt glad our laughter was drowned out by semis. For a night of rest, be sure to bring good earplugs.
