Antelope Lake

Antelope Lake lies in the beautiful Indian Valley area in central Plumas County. It sits at 5,000 feet and measures about 15 miles around the shoreline. Antelope Lake is a favorite spot for campers and fishermen, as well as those wanting a getaway to a beautiful mountain lake.

The charming settlement of Taylorsville, on the way to Antelope Lake, has changed little since it was founded in 1852. Several period buildings and ranches remain and along with the Indian Valley Museum offer visitors a rare glimpse of yesteryear. Taylorsville is a favorite spot for visitors during the summer months. The town becomes a mecca for cowboys over the Fourth of July, when the Silver Buckle Rodeo comes to town. Also featured are a parade and arts and crafts fair. Taylorsville is home to a community campground and picnic site east of town, and a grange hall renowned for its unique spring-loaded dance floor. From there, it's a spectacular scenic drive to Antelope Lake, passing through the picturesque village of Genesee with its unique country store.

Please note: There is no dump station at Antelope Lake campgrounds.
