Found in the Plumas National Forest, Long Point is treasured by visitors for its isolated and sedate atmosphere. This area is perfect for visitors looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and get a taste of the true outdoors.
There are 38 total sites to choose from in Long Point Campground, all of which come with campfire rings and grilling stations, as well as access to drinking water. These areas can support both tent camping and recreational vehicles, provided you've made the necessary arrangements beforehand. Most of the sites here offer views of Antelope Reservoir, which is immediately adjacent to Long Point. The dump station has been permanently closed, so guests in RVs will have to be self-contained. If you're bringing Fido along for your overnight stay, make sure they stay indoors throughout the evening.
Fishing is a popular pastime here as well in Antelope Reservoir, which offers great bass fishing throughout the season. Make sure to bring all of your equipment if you're looking to fish, as no marina or rental shops are available here for the sport. Dogs are asked to steer clear of the water but are free to accompany guests, provided they're on a leash and under regular supervision.
Boats are also welcome on the lake, as long as they have up-to-date registration and guests have a license. There's a concrete boat launch available to guests for an additional fee. Antelope Reservoir varies widely in depth, so if you're getting out on the water, make sure you've checked all online resources and maps to avoid any accidents. Guests can bring their dogs with them on boat rides, provided they're restrained throughout the journey and are under constant supervision.
A general store on the campgrounds provides last-minute necessities in addition to firewood and is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Guests are reminded that California enforces strict rules banning the moving of native woods, so make sure any fire fuel that you buy stays in the park when you depart.
