Overview

Antelope Campground is located on the shores of the scenic Sagehen Reservoir in the Boise National Forest, perched at an elevation of 4,800 feet. Visitors enjoy boating, fishing and exploring the Sagehen Reservoir Trail.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated in a forest of towering Ponderosa pine, Engelmann spruce, Douglas fir and grand fir. Most sites have plentiful shade and some have partial lake views. Summer temperatures range from 80-90 degrees during the day to crisp, cool nights.

A variety of berries and mushrooms can be found throughout the area. Local wildlife includes deer, elk, black bear, goshawk, woodpeckers and boreal owls.

Recreation:

Sagehen Reservoir offers excellent boating, canoeing and rainbow trout fishing. A boat ramp and dock are located within the campground.

Hiking, biking, horse and off-road vehicle trails are abundant in the area. The Sagehen Reservoir Trail, a 4-mile loop around the lake, offers great fishing spots, beautiful viewpoints and abundant wildlife watching opportunities.

The Sagehen and KYAOTT ATV Trail Systems can be accessed near the reservoir, offering more than 35 miles of trails for off-road vehicles and motorcycles, but hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders can enjoy these trails as well.

Facilities:

The campground offers a large, tent-only group site that can accommodate up to 30 people, with several picnic tables, a grill and campfire ring. Numerous single-family sites are available as well, also equipped with picnic tables and campfire rings.

Vault toilets and hand-pumped drinking water are provided. Roads and some parking spurs throughout the campground are paved; other spurs are gravel. Firewood is available for purchase from the host.
