Antilon Lake Campground

Campground Description:  Antilon Lake Campground is owned and operated jointly by the US Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management.  Antilon Lake Campground is best accessed by 4 wheel drive, high clearance vehicles.  RVs, even truck mounted campers, may well be an unfortunate choice.  Very small boat trailers (10 foot long boat or less) can be towed in with a great deal of care.  Internal combustion powered boats are prohibited on the lake.  Swimming in Antilon Lake is not recommended per the US Forest Service.  All water must be brought in because there is no source at Antilon Lake.  Because of the hot summers, spring and fall are the choice seasons for camping at Antilon Lake Campground.  Reservations are not possible.

Number of Sites:  Dispersed camping therefore the number of tent camping sites is undetermined.

Electricity:  No

Water:  No

Sewer:  No

Fishing:  Good fishing for Brown Trout - 20" brownies have been reported.  Detailed information can be found at: Antilon Lake Fishing

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds.  The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site.  Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide.  Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do not allow tent camping.  If in doubt, call the campground first.

The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners.  In this way we insure that every description in this free guide is unbiased.  Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tents and all types of RV campers.  While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.

Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions.  New campgrounds are added weekly.
