Antelope Flat Campground lies on the shores of the beautiful Flaming Gorge Reservoir at an elevation of 6,000 feet, on the Ashley National Forest within the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. Visitors love Antelope Flat for its easy access to boating, water skiing and fishing.

Nearly every site within the campground offers scenic reservoir and mountain views. Russian olive trees and cottonwoods dot the rolling, sagebrush-covered landscape. Shade is limited, and temperatures range from warm days to cool nights.

Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area is known not only for its beautiful red cliffs, but also for its world-class fishing for lake, brown and rainbow trout. Boating, water skiing, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and scuba diving are popular activities on the reservoir.

Several family sites are available, each with a cabana, picnic table and campfire ring; some sites have grills.

Flush toilets and drinking water are provided and a dump station is available to use for a fee. A boat ramp is located on-site. The campground is accessed via a gravel road. Firewood can be obtained by the vendor. Don't Move Firewood: Help prevent the spread of tree-killing pests in our national forests by obtaining firewood near your destination and burning it on-site. 

Nearby Attractions:

  • Flaming Gorge Dam offers guided tours of the working hydroelectric plant and the dam, and the adjacent visitor center contains area history exhibits.
  • The Green River below the dam provides spectacular rafting opportunities. A trip down the river offers unique geology, outlaw history and Native American rock art.
