Antelope Reservoir Campground

Campground Description:  Antelope Reservoir and its associated campground are owned and operated by the Bureau of Land Management.  Although Antelope Reservoir isn't near any tourist attractions and the nearest town (Jordan Valley) has a population of just 230 people, its a great place to unwind without the crowds at many State Parks.  The campground is both RV camping and tent camping friendly.  Antelope Reservoir is a boater's paradise due to the complete lack of crowds.  Wildlife spotters will find antelope, badgers, coyotes, and a number of bird species ranging from grouse to eagles.  Nearby is a self guided automobile route through the Soldier Creek Watchable Wildlife site.  Open year round subject to weather conditions.  Reservations are not possible.

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 allow RV camping but not 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 ensure 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 tent camping and all types of RV camping.  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.
