Antelope Flat Campground lies on the shores of the beautiful Flaming Gorge Reservoir at an elevation of 6,000 feet, on the Ashley National Forest within the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. Visitors love Antelope Flat for its easy access to boating, water skiing and fishing.
Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area is known not only for its beautiful red cliffs, but also for its world-class fishing for lake, brown and rainbow trout. Boating, water skiing, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and scuba diving are popular activities on the reservoir.
The campground contains four group sites, each with a picnic shelter, tables, campfire ring, grills and tent pads. Several family sites are available as well, each with a cabana, picnic table and campfire ring; some sites have grills.
Flush toilets, drinking water and a dump station are provided. A boat ramp is located on-site. The campground is accessed via a well-maintained gravel road.
Nearly every site within the campground offers scenic reservoir and mountain views. Russian olive trees and cottonwoods dot the rolling, sagebrush-covered landscape. Shade is limited, and temperatures range from warm days to cool nights.
Flaming Gorge Dam offers guided tours of the working hydroelectric plant and the dam, and the adjacent visitor center contains area history exhibits.
The Green River below the dam provides spectacular rafting opportunities. A trip down the river offers unique geology, outlaw history and Native American rock art.

We stayed three nights at the Antelope Flat Campground on the east shore of Flaming Gorge. The campground itself is a bit dated, but we were OK with it. Seems to be best for tent camping, there are RV spots available but without hook ups. There is a dump station. Tent sites are well kept and well maintained. We met the camp hosts for 2019, they were a very nice older couple. Seems like the wife maintains the bathrooms with flush toilets. Super clean! And her husband maintains the sites. All sites and fire rings were clean and free of weeds and debris. He worked everyday we were there on a new site. Kudos to them! Campground had super easy access to the boat ramp where we launched our kayak. Great spot to launch. Also it can get very windy!!!!!
We spent one night at Antelope Flats and it was not good. The wind gusted at around 50 miles an hour for about three hours, making it impossible to stay outside. If your tent was not staked down well, it would have blown away (which we witnessed). Thankfully, the wind subsided for us to be able to sleep. The whole campground is also full of fox tails and stickers so if you are camping with dogs I would definitely stay away from this site unless you want to constantly be pulling them out of your dog. Also, at the time of our arrival they did not have any water available and the flush toilets were not working. They did issue a 50% refund for the water not working, so that was very nice. Overall, I would not stay there again.
We've camped there twice for a quiet place on Flaming Gorge. Rarely half full with great water access, boat ramp and clean facilities. But of a long dirt road in, and no "hookups" keep the party RV groups away.
