Area Status: Closed
Description: The campground is a single loop and is moderately to thickly wooded with a mix of oak and pine trees that provide plenty of shade in the hot summers (80% + cover). The understory, which consists of manzanita, blackberries, poison oak, tree fern, wild grape and a variety of native grasses and forbs provide limited privacy between campsites. When the lake level is high, the bank is moderately sloped to provide access to the water. As the lake level drops, it exposes a step drop off to the water, especially on the side of the campground nearest Gregory Beach. There is a boat ramp nearby at Antlers. Lake activities include fishing, swimming, motorized and non-motorized boating, and watersports.
Each site has a picnic table, and a fire ring. Operating season is subject to change for bald eagle habitat protection. See Forest Order 14-58-40 - Eagle Closure. Please check with the Shasta Lake Ranger Station (530) 275-1587 regarding the status of this campground.
