At 5,000 feet in elevation, Antelope Lake is located in the northeastern part of the Mt. Hough Ranger District. It is a small remote lake with 15 miles of shoreline. Surrounding the lake are mountains blanketed with pine and fir trees. Protected coves around the lake attract several species of migratory birds. 

There is a small store located on site with plans to open mid-summer 2021 and will offer supplies including groceries, ice, and souvenirs.   For more information regarding this amenity please contact Outdoors in Plumas

Travellers can also stop in nearby communities such as Taylorsville, Greenvile, Janesville, Milford and Susanville for ice and other supplies before you travel up the hill.   Wood is for sale within campgrounds.
