One of western Idaho’s best campgrounds is Antelope Campground, which rests in the sprawling Boise National Forest, the state’s premier camping and outdoor recreation area that covers over two million acres. This amazing setting provides campers with picturesque views of the forest’s natural features and convenient access to outdoor activities like hiking and wildlife viewing. Visitors to Antelope can also take advantage of the Sagehen Reservoir, located adjacent to the campground. Best of all, the campground is pet-friendly, so you can camp out in the company of your canine companion!
Antelope Campground has 14 campsites; some are first-come-first-served and others are reservable. During the summer months, you may want to reserve a site because the campground gets a lot of traffic. The nightly fee for a site is $14.81, but if you are interested in group camping, you can reserve a 30-person group site for $64.81. If you just plan on staying during the day, the campground charges an $8 fee for day use.
You won’t have to worry about your site getting too much direct sunlight because there is plenty of shade from the surrounding trees — the campground rests in a dense pine forest. The sites all have picnic tables and campfire rings, and some of the other amenities on the premises include drinking water, vault restrooms, and a boat ramp.
Throughout your stay, you’ll find plenty of ways to fill your time with the area’s awesome outdoor activities. Head to the reservoir for boating and fishing. If hiking and wildlife viewing interest you, you can find numerous trails in the area around the campground. The Sagehen Trail System is a popular choice. KYAOTT ATV Trail System is also available for ATV riders.
When you’re visiting Antelope Campground, remember that your dog should remain leashed at all times. Also remember to clean up after your dog.
