Lone Rock Campground is one of three in the Antelope Lake Recreation Area. Nestled in the beautiful northern Sierra Nevada mountain range, it offers forested woods and scenic vistas as far as the eye can see.

Antelope Lake is one of the more remote, quiet lakes in the Plumas National Forest, making it a popular destination for anglers and explorers of all abilities.

Natural Features:

Tall pine and fir trees provide plentiful shade to the area, which is situated at an elevation of 5,000 feet.


The campground's close proximity to the lake provides visitors with access to fishing, swimming, boating, water skiing and other water-related recreation activities. Anglers can look forward to a well-stocked trout, bass and catfish population.

Educational programs are offered at the campground's amphitheater. Hiking and mountain biking opportunities abound. The Sunset Point trail begins near the campground.


The campground offers multiple sites for both tent and RV camping, several of them adjacent to the lake, providing views of the lake. Space allows for two vehicles at each site; extra vehicles can be parked in nearby overflow parking at no extra charge.

Tables and campfire rings with grills are provided, as well as vault toilets and drinking water.

Nearby Attractions:

The campground is 30 miles from the small town of Taylorsville. The drive along Janesville Grade has some terrific views.
