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. The campgrounds are usually open by Memorial Day weekend and close by the middle of October. These dates are subject to change depending on the snow level in the area.
