We stayed at what I guess is called the upper loop of Antlers. This is very much and in-the-woods type park. As noted in a previous review, there was no one to check us in when we got here. Apparently, off season staffing (mid September) is very light and if you show up at lunch time, you have to wait. Fortunately, we found some maintenance personnel that directed us to our site. The sites in the upper loop all appear to be very spacious, level with a good rock base, and have a cement patio with at least one picnic table. Many sites have two tables. The hooks ups at our site are all kind of clumped together and the sewer connection is one of those right angle hook ups so you need to look around for a rock to brace your pipe. Most – but not all – sites have 50 amp. We are staying in a very large pull through that only has 30 amp for some reason. When you make a reservation I would ask for site number and if it has 30 or 50. The sites all appear to have a good amount of shade from large Ponderosa pines so satellite users may have some problems. The cable TV provided is very basic and poor quality. Same for the WI-FI. The restrooms and showers appear to be kept very clean, but are at the back end of the loop. The lake does not appear to within easy walking distance and I have yet to locate the convenience store noted in the parks web site. It may be because the lake is exceptional low at this time and the closest boat ramp is closed. There is a very basic grocery store back by the I5 turn off. Signage into and around the park is not great - so go slow. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our first visit to this park and we had a wonderful time. The staff and the owners bent over backwards to make sure that our every need was fulfilled. We stayed in the upper loop, which is intended more for big rigs. Our only complaint is that the restrooms and showers are not as nice in the upper loop as they are in the lower loop. In fact, we didn't use the showers in the upper loop at all, instead opting to walk the extra distance to the lower loop. We will definitely be returning to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a nice campground. Campsites were a little close to your neighbor though. Best attractions nearby, Shasta Caverns, Shasta Dam, and then Mt. Shasta. No Wi-Fi in sites but could get it at the deck. Warm during the day but very nice at night. We played family bingo first night there that staff set up. Lots of fun. Would come back again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Went to stay in this park what a dump. The campground was overgrown and had junk all over the place and know body to check you in. We left and will never come back. Went up the road another 40 miles to another park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were very happy with this campground, and I'm giving it 9 out of 10 instead of the full 10 because there's no Wi-Fi at the individual campsites, only on the deck behind the store/cafe which is closed during the off-season. Marty, the owner, arrived as we were trying to figure out where the pull-through sites were and led us around to give us our pick. We pretty much had the place to ourselves. It was a beautiful day and Marty brought us a nice load of kindling and firewood, gratis, so we could enjoy the evening outside. We'd definitely return for a longer visit at any time of year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park doesn't look as good as the brochure. It is a bit run down but I have to say that all the amenities worked as advertised. Spaces are a bit small but we got our 33' trailer into site #5 with a little bit of work. Restrooms and showers all worked fine but were a bit neglected. Good access to the lake (walking distance). Stayed across the street from the parks employees trailers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A nice park nestled back in the woods. The Wi-Fi was non-existent at our site. Someone said that it was receivable near the office. Our Verizon air card worked fine, so I never tried. Some train noise, but it usually doesn't blow it's horn at night, so it was just background noise at our site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very rural RV park. Beautiful setting. They have cable TV that was grainy and no WiFi. Stayed twice and twice the office was not open! Train runs through several times a night. Has full hook ups. Great for boaters. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was right next to the lake, although you cannot see the lake from your site. The "upper loop" sites were much better, not so close together. Shasta Lake is a party place and people were definitely partying. We did not see anyone enforcing quiet time. Bathrooms and showers were so-so, not too clean, broken shower heads, etc. But we liked being in the trees and seeing wildlife. We would come back here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has spectacular landscapes nestled between giant redwoods. Spaces are fairly level and most have small trees and brush between them for better privacy. The sites have newer utilities including 50amp service and the grounds are constantly being groomed. The general store literally was closed the entire time we were there; I believe it was going through restorations. Restrooms were old and in need of a face lift. Showers were in the same condition. The laundry was clean and well maintained although there were few campers to dirty thing up. Swimming pool was not maintained at all. Unless you are a river-rat or want to fish there is nothing for activities. However the peaceful ambiance of the campground and the uniquely friendly management made this a welcome stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All the folks at Antlers are friendly. And that’s a good thing, because you'll be packed in like sardines. In the summer it's like a tent city, and hotter than Baghdad. In order to back in our 19 foot travel trailer we had to move our picnic table, our neighbor's chairs, and their truck. Took 25 minutes. Despite the 104 degree heat, at night one of our several neighbors lit a fire in their fire ring. It was so close to our camper we felt the heat. The lake is nice but not fantastic. If you want fantastic, go to Mount Lassen, a few hours away. If you want the experience of sleeping in a refugee camp, this is the place for you. I give the place a 3 rather than a 1 because the pool was cool, the lake was swimmable, and the people were friendly. I didn't check out the WiFi, but you had to walk next door to the marina to use it, we were told. Bathrooms and showers were okay--old and run down, but not dirty. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
We loved the beautiful, clean grounds of this area. There are many established trees and foliage, just like a campground. The park was quiet and guests seemed respectful. We stayed for one night, during which time the power company had to turn off the power for a few hours during the night for some work. The RV park manager/owner offered everyone a free bag of ice upon check in for the unexpected inconvenience. We were very pleased with our overall experience and would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an excellent RV park featuring both RV and tent camping. Family friendly with direct access to the Antlers Marina and boat launch. Great place for family reunions or group gatherings. Group camp areas and picnic/BBQ area. Staff was wonderful. Sites were large, very clean and level. Spotty on satellite reception for TV. Lots of shade. Camp store and deli. Playground for kids including Basketball and jungle gym equipment. We really enjoyed this RV park. New owners for the last two years and they have made wonderful strides in cleaning up and improving the park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Quiet, basic campsite. Located in the woods, but close to the I-5 (traffic can be heard a bit). Large sites with table and BBQ pit. Many facilities for younger guests, like swimming pool, biljart, table tennis, volleyball, etc. All is operational, but badly in need of maintenance, including the restrooms and showers. Friendly owners. Good Wi-Fi. Relatively expensive. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice but rough park. Lack of 50 A service was a bit of surprise though. Good Wi-Fi and great very refreshing and clean pool. Walk/bike to lake. We were in a 36 ft motor home and egress was tight but doable. Very large site and well sited with good privacy. Nice and quiet as well. Owner/managers are great people: friendly and very helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very rough park, but then we were here in off season. Lots of full time guests, and pretty rough set ups. Did have good access to an area that we could run the dogs, but not as part of the RV park. Pretty tight internal road for big rigs, but manager helped us get around the trees and to our site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a nice park! We only stayed overnight but it is definitely on our list for a longer stay next year! We arrived after dark and it was a little difficult to find our site but the friendly owner/manager walked down to make sure we got parked OK. The roads are on the narrow side and some of the trees are a little close but are easily maneuverable - just take it slow. Sites are spacious and have picnic tables, fire pits and BBQ pits. The area is wooded and peaceful and full of wildlife - deer are frequent visitors. There are trains but we didn't hear any horns and barely noticed the track noise. We were at the very back of the park and could not see the Wi-Fi at all but our Verizon phones had full bars. There are some long-term residents but the park and all sites are well kept. A great value and right off the I-5. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great find! We were just passing through and only planned to stay one night but extended our stay to three after seeing how nice it was. The spots are very large and come with a picnic table, fire pit and outdoor barbeque in addition to the usual hookups. The grounds are very well kept and garbage free. The campground is close to I-5 but we honestly didn't hear it at all once inside the trailer and only the sound of the occasional train kept us from believing that we were in the middle of the woods. The free Wi-Fi was a little spotty as was the cell phone service but not a real problem. We plan to stay here every time we pass through the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This CG is right on the lake but easy access to the lake is not available. The view is stunning. A small campground and a little hard to get around in. Probably would not handle anything larger than our 38 footer. Lots of shade. It was quiet when we were here but with the bar and restaurant and advertised bands it would probably get pretty noisy. Season had not quite started. All dirt with some grass but had rained heavily the night before and one day we were here. Good drainage tho and mud was not a problem. Train track very close and engineer blows horn but didn't seem to run after 10pm. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I wish that I had read the reviews for this park before staying there. A sign at check-in reads that they do not advertise a quiet environment. They are right. This is the worst park that I have stayed in. I was ready to check-out right after check-in. I hid away inside for RV for 4 nights anxious to leave since there is a no refund policy. The park is on the lake, but the water is a good 80 foot below with no safe path to get to it. All of the sites are small, dirt only and difficult to get into. I have a 36 foot rig which barely fit into the largest campsite there. The trash was not emptied while I was there and smelled terrible with visible rats around the containers. I won't go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There is definitely a train that runs by the campground frequently. Scared my 2 1/2 year old to death one night. Very loud! Music is extremely loud Thursday - Saturday nights 8 pm until 12 am. The place seems to attract a lot of locals: wanting to drink and party. We went with 2 other RVers and had 8 kids with us, so the pool was a nice amenity. Our spots were the closest to the playground which was nice to keep a close watch on the kids. I definitely would not get spot 6 next to the dump station or the horizontal spot right next to the highway. We stayed 3 nights and had spots 1, 2, and 3. They were close to the highway and not very pretty, but the company was good and our friends made the trip worth our 5 hour drive from the Bay Area. The lake was extremely low at this time, so there really were no "lake view" sites. All in all it was a nice trip, but mostly due to the company not the campground. Our friends said they checked out Antler RV and it looked a lot nicer. We may try here next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place was an absolute dump. Camp sites had garbage laying around. Firepits had garbage in them that had not been cleaned out. Restrooms, showers and laundry facility were filthy and had not been cleaned for quite some time. One of the washing machines in the laundry room leaked water all over the floor and the floor was rotting out. Some guy was passed out drunk in the children's play area. A couple with children that came in the same night we did, had reservations for three nights and left after only one night. Will never go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the worst campground I have ever seen. It's dirty, extremely tight, noisy (train),
and is not a good family place. The toilets were always overflowing, and the dump station is located right next to a site. Disgusting. The lake itself is beautiful, but I would suggest anywhere but here. This place attracts a rough crowd too. The people across from us were doing drugs and fighting all night. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
There are nice people running park but the park is getting very run down. The bathrooms are not cleaned daily, and the showers were dirty. The park is very very noisy because of trains, I-5 noise, and workers with loud trucks. We stayed here years ago but won't be back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were disappointed with the campgrounds. There are not many trees, no shade in our spot 85. The flies were so bad that could not even sit outside and enjoy the nice weather. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would not probably stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is in need of SERIOUS work. It is dirty and dusty, with gravel. Most of the sites were unlevel and difficult to get level. There is absolutely no grass, just a bunch of dry weeds and spurs (that get in your dog's fur and are difficult to get out). I would not recommend this place. It has constant highway noise from I-5 and has a train track very close by, with regular train traffic. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This site is very clean, has great bathrooms/shower, great hosts, and a wonderful location. The only negative that it may have is that if you have anyone whom cannot walk very well it is a bit hard to make it down to the dock. Its a bit of a steep but short hike from the camp grounds - though much shorter than most RV parks in this area. This is hard with a handful of boating stuff, ice chests, kids, & toys. The docks are kept very well maintained. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not to be confused with Lakeshore Inn and RV park. We stayed in a space backing up to Doney Creek, and we enjoyed it. Plenty of shade, leveled with no problem. Cable TV was spotty, so I just hooked up the satellite. Boat slips available, and this is a big draw for others at the campsite. Staff was helpful, and friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice small park with new manager. Park is a bit run down, but he just took over and is working hard to get it back in shape. They have kicked out some of the trashier people and the ones that are still here are looking ok. Wi-Fi is not working right now and the Cable is in bad shape, you only get 4 channels. The power is good and Verizon works well. The pool and bathrooms are nice and clean. I could not get my dish to work, as for the trees. Only stayed for one night so didn't set up the remote. As far as Passport Americas places go, this will be one of the nicer ones, once it is fixed up - if they do fix it up. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
While it looks a bit “too” rustic, our drive-through site was level, power was clean, and our Verizon reception for the phones and “air” card was great. Best of all, we were able to get Direct TV via our rear roof mounted dish which isn’t always possible in some of the more expensive sites we have been. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We paid the Passport America price of $15.50. We would never have stayed here for full price. First the good: Nice long pull through site; we didn't have to unhook the car for the overnight stay. There is a store for some food and movie rentals and the man in the office was very nice and helpful. Good free wi-fi and cable. Verizon did not work. Bell ExpressVu worked despite all the trees. Now the bad: the place is a dive. Junk and garbage everywhere and the long time residents sites are disgusting. If management would evict the junkers and clean up the area it could be a nice park. Ok for a cheap overnight stay but no longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The cost reflects passport. This is the most rundown RV park I have been in the locals were all at the office which is 80% of the RV Park a broken down ransacked trailer meets you at the entrance and everything goes down from there would not send my worst enemy there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for one night at $14 on our way up north using our Passport America card. The park is pretty rundown and there are a lot of longtimers staying here. We did get a pull-through site and for one night on the road it was OK. They did have a pool and restrooms as well as a general store. The location is off the highway, so it was quiet and close to Lake Shasta. The Passport rate makes it worthwhile to stay for one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate reflects the PA discount plus $1.00 a night for 50 amp power. Trail In RV Campground has everything you need: full hook-ups (30/50 amp power), free Wi-Fi, cable, reasonably clean showers, pool and grocery store. They accept all discounts: GS, AAA, Escapee, PA, Happy Camper, etc. Interior roads are passable but not in great shape and pull-through sites are large enough to accommodate big rigs with tow vehicle. Location is convenient to Lassen Volcanic Nat'l Park, Shasta Nat'l Forest, Shasta Lake, and Redding. The current owner and the manager are wonderfully nice, attentive, helpful, cheerful, friendly people. Issues with this park are its appearance, road noise, and whining dogs. The park buildings and grounds haven't seen any maintenance in years. Most of the sites are occupied by permanent and/or seasonal residents who have no interest in keeping their areas free of trash. But then, the park buildings are surrounded by junk and trash. There are a number of cats roaming the park and they, presumably, keep the rodent population in check. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The price shown is based on Passport America membership. The folks here are very friendly, but it is real country and most appear to be full time residents. Our gravel pull through site was long enough to accommodate the tow car without disconnecting. We stayed here one night to visit Lassen NP. Entrance road into this RV park needs a lot of work so go slow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Let me start this with the fact they had a flash flood a few days ago that wiped out the main entry bridge that allows easy entrance for bigger rigs into camping spots. They seem to be working on it but I'd bet it'll be a while before it's done. It is possible for trailers as long as you can make a sharp cut but would be work for a Class A. That being said this is an "OK" park for an overnight stay while driving through but probably not a place I'd stay if I had younger kids. There are several permanent campers (aka people living here) that reflect the economy of the area, the office and "store" are old and well worn and the management was definitely friendly. There were many of the permanent campers hanging out on the front porch of the office/store and to be honest it creep-ed out my wife. There is some highway noise from I-5 but it is not horrible. We did not use the restrooms or showers due to creep factor. All in all it's a quick stay while passing through and for the price it's an OK type place, more a $10 park than a $15. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I'm glad I ignored the other reviews. We had no problem with this park for an overnight en route stay, especially for the $15 Passport America rate. We got a long pull-through site (in an area separate from the full-timers), 50 amp, full hookup w/ basic cable, free Wi-Fi (worked well for email and light browsing) and from sites 3-5 Dish rooftop satellite should work. It is convenient to I-5 and quiet, in a valley surrounded by treed hillsides. The host was helpful and friendly. Kids were playing. It's run down and not a campground we'd like to hang out at, but would stay overnight again for the Passport rate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The permanent residents outnumber the overnight campers 10 to 1. Most of the park is covered in junk that the residents threw around their campers, old motor homes, shacks etc. There were several dogs running loose, so I didn't feel comfortable leaving my dog out alone at all. Trash was everywhere. The pool was dirty and I didn't go in the restrooms. I didn't feel good about leaving anything unlocked or otherwise unsecured. This is one I will definitely not visit again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As a Pass Port park we were able to save some money on the regular rate. The park is very old and very tired with many long term residents living there in older units. Dogs were allowed to wander the park without being leashed and deposit their business where ever they wanted. The pull through sites were long and wide enough for our rig. This is not a first class park, but for being safe and off the main highway it will work. The manager fellow was helpful and willing to help. The free Wi-Fi was not reliable and seemed to be off as much as it was on. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I'll say this: What did we expect for the rate? It was not expensive, and it is mostly a long-term resident park. The pool was clean, so were the restrooms, but I would not let my kids use them without an adult escort, as some of the people hanging around seemed frightening. We followed the sheriff into the park, it was not a social call, that should have been a sign. We won't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is basically a park for long term residents, with many older units in need of major maintenance. One trailer had 4 or 5 old refrigerators piled next to it. Fire rings are actually old rusty wheels without tires. There are about 10 spaces for travelers but the whole place needs a lot of work. The pool was open and looked clean; however, the WiFi was down and the "store" was inadequately stocked. We would not stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Traveling up I-5, stopped here for the night because I noticed it was a Passport America park. A typical, older campground with limited facilities, but washrooms were clean, staff were friendly and the price included cable TV and WiFi. Sites were a bit sloped but not enough to force me to bring out the leveling blocks for the one night. If I was staying longer I would. All sites and roads are gravel. My length is 44' and I just fit into the pull-through. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV Park is under New Ownership. The staff is helpful and friendly. I drove there by myself without my husband, as he had to work and arrived latter. Upon my arrival they hooked up my 40 foot motorhome for me. With a smile they quickly hooked up my electrical, cable, water, and sewer! I was impressed with their friendly service. The park is easily accessible from the freeway and well marked with several signs. The lake was very close, not more than a five minute drive away. The pull through sites were long and easy to drive into. I would highly recommend this park to lake lovers. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This park was nowhere near the rating received in the Trailer Life campground directory. It was reasonably well kept but it is an old park and shows its age.The sites were rustic and dusty. It appears the park is supported by the numerous "permanents" living on site.
We ran into a very uncomfortable situation with a neighbors Pit Bull mix, running loose in the park and acting agressively towards our dogs. A request to the Managers to take care of it brought the response "just shoot it" and a request to the owner brought nothing but laughter and unpleasant words. In fact, they said we could leave if we didn't like it. We would not recommend this campground to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 4 / 10 ]
Small older park. Close to - but not on Shasta Lake - must drive about 1.5 mi to get to nearest arm of the lake (Salt Creek)and even further to get to boat ramps at Lakehead. Easy access to/from highway I-5. Gravel roads & sites. 12 pull-through sites w;hich are too close together. Small, limited store. Restrooms & showers were old but were kept reasonably clean. Had approx 6 year-round RV residents living there and several "permanent" RV's set up for their owner's use during summer. Place was for sale when we were there so resident manager, though nice wasn't very motivated. It would probably appeal to jet-skiers & water skiers looking for an inexpensive place fairly close to the lake so they can stay at the lake all day and return to RV at night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
