Antlers Campground is situated on a bluff above the Sacramento arm of Shasta Lake. The grounds are heavily forested with pine trees, oak and Manzanita that provide shade and some privacy. Easy access from I-5 makes Antlers a very popular campground.

Natural Features:

The Shasta-Trinity is the largest national forest in California with a diverse landscape, encompassing five wilderness areas, hundreds of mountain lakes and 6,278 miles of streams and rivers.

Lake Shasta sits at an elevation of 1,067 feet and has 365 miles of shoreline punctuated by steep mountains blanketed in Manzanita and evergreens. Snow-capped Mount Shasta, the second-tallest mountain in the Cascade Range, looms in the distance.


Shasta Lake provides a variety of water sports, such as power boating, non-motorized boating and water skiing. A public boat ramp is provided near the campground.

Anglers can fish for trout, catfish, Chinook salmon, crappie, bluegill, white sturgeon, brown bullhead and bass.


Each site has a picnic table (two in double sites), lockers for storing food, fire rings, grills, and tent pads. Sites at this campground can accommodate both tents and RVs, however there are no electric/water hookups or dump stations.

There are both flush and vault toilets at this campground but no showers are available. Drinking water is provided.

Interpretive programs are hosted at the nearby amphitheater every weekend between Memorial Day and Labor Day. For more information, please call 530-275-8113.
