Long Point Campground is on the south shore of Antelope Lake in the Plumas National Forest. The campground is on a peninsula, about 2½ miles from Lost Cove Boat Ramp. Antelope Lake hosts a variety of water sports, including canoeing, kayaking, and water skiing. Fishing is popular in the coves around the lake, especially for rainbow and brown trout. Along the south side of the campground shallow water provides a popular area for small kids to wade under the watchful eyes of adults. On the northern side of the campground, the water is deeper. Many campers moor their boats near their campsites.
Long Point Campground has 38 campsites which can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. Eleven sites are available for reservations, while the remainder are kept open for first-come, first-served campers. A few double sites are available. Some premium sites are lake-front.

General Camping Information
Opening and closing dates of campgrounds are only estimates, usually dependent on snow conditions. Not all campsites can accommodate trailers or RVs of all lengths. Check carefully on the reservation website when you make your reservation to be sure your vehicle will fit your campsite.
In order to prevent the spread of invasive insects, obtain firewood from the local area of the campground.
Designated Accessible sites are usually reserved for people with disabilities who have a vehicle displaying an accessible parking placard or license plate. At some campgrounds campers may use these sites if all others have been filled.
