My friend died this Saturday after jumping from the cliffs above the pool. There were no signs posted. Please warn anyone that it is very dangerous. Says Stephanie

Do not camp here. The
 
    interstate - I-80 - is right over your head. I could not believe a beautiful campground had freeway traffic at a super close view and the noise was even worse. I forfeited my reservations and went somewhere else. Word to the wise
 - this is not a good place for humans seeking nature. Says Susie Burnett (Wed, 20 Jul 2011)

The natural prettiness at this primitive campground is good; when you go camping for a couple of days at a primitive campground like Indian Springs Campground you're beyond doubt camping. This is a primitive campground which of course means that there are a small number of amenities. Water hookups are offered here, and naturally there are restrooms here.
The delightful variety of local attractions and all the outdoors recreation are sure to keep you coming back again and again. In California you never run out of outdoors amusing stuff. Outdoors recreation is plentiful, some of the enjoyable
 
stuff you can do is hiking, fishing, swimming, and whitewater paddling, so possibly you want to stick around for a while.
Indian Springs Campground is a top selection campground with people from Emigrant Gap.
