Antlers Public Boat Ramp

Area Status: Closed
This area is Closed

Located on the upper Sacramento River Arm adjacent to Antlers campground. The ramp has four launching lanes available until the lake level drawdown reaches 75 feet. At that time, the Antlers ramp closes and the Sugarloaf low water ramp becomes available at 75' drawdown. This facility has been upgraded to include an accessible loading platform, an information station, accessible drinking fountain and parking spaces as well as access paths to connect accessible features within the facility. Nearby is the Antlers campground (public facility), Antlers Marina, Antlers RV Park & campground. Located between the Antlers campground and the Antlers boat ramp, sits the Amphitheater where visitors can attend interpretive programs during the summer months. Ramp may be closed when the parking lot fills up or lake debris causes launching to be hazardous (especially in the spring months).
