Antelope Flat Reservoir Campground and Day Use

Area Status: Closed
This area is Closed

Antelope Campground Thumb 01

The campground is located just above the day-use area and boat ramp for Antelope Flat Reservoir, and is situated among large ponderosa pines which provide a quiet and scenic setting for forest visitors.  Only a few campsites provide views of the reservoir, but the walk from the campground to the water's edge takes most people less than 10 minutes.  Potable drinking water is available near the south end of the campground from a standing hand pump; however there are no hook-ups available on site.
The day-use area is located right on the water’s edge and is outfitted with picnic tables, fire rings, a vault bathroom, and a boat ramp. Please DO NOT park vehicles in the boat ramp loop as it can block other visitors from accessing the water. If you keep a keen eye out and a pair of binoculars on hand, large birds of prey can occasionally be seen from the day-use area nesting on the east side of the reservoir.
