Antelope Reservoir, Oregon

By chance, we found a small campground about a mile from the highway. It will definitely work for a one-nighter.

Overall Experience:

Additional Info: Antelope Reservoir is a small artificial lake located in Jordan Valley, Oregon, in the south eastern corner of the state. It is situated in a remote, rugged area of Oregon, about 94 miles southwest of Boise, Idaho. The reservoir was created by the construction of Antelope Dam on Antelope Creek. The area surrounding the reservoir is managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and is open to the public for a variety of outdoor activities, including boating, fishing, and camping. The reservoir is stocked with rainbow trout, & brook trout, and it is a popular destination for anglers. The BLM also manages a campground and several day-use areas near the reservoir. The area is known for its rugged, remote terrain and diverse plant and animal life.

Although the water level in the reservoir was extremely low, we saw three coyotes hunting below the campground, white pelicans on the reservoir, and sandhill cranes arriving in the evening & leaving in the morning.
