Antlers Campground

Area Status: Closed
This area is Closed

Located on the upper Sacramento Arm, the campground sits on a bluff above the lake and although some sites are near the lakeshore, direct access to the water is very difficult. The campground area is flat and level, covered with oak and pine forest which provide shade and good screening between units. Each campsite contains a paved parking spur, a table, bear boxes, and one fire ring.

Antlers boat ramp and Antlers amphitheatre are located nearby.  The amphitheatre consists of a building and stage and an adjacent paved parking lot for 22 vehicles.
