Gregory Creek Campground

Gregory Creek Campground is in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, on the Sacramento Arm of Shasta Lake. The campground is across the arm from Antlers Campground. Campers at Gregory Creek enjoy fishing along the shore, especially along the Gregory Creek inlet. Swimmers take advantage of Gregory Beach. Boaters can launch their vessels at nearby Antlers launch ramp.

Gregory Creek Campground has 18 first-come, first served campsites for small RVs, trailers, and tents. There are no reservations available. Trees offer plenty of shade. At times the campground may be closed due to low lake water levels or to protect bald eagle habitat. As the lake level drops, access to the water becomes more difficult due to the steep bank. Some campsites have filtered lake views. Visitors can minimize freeway noise by selecting sites away from the entrance gate.
