We stayed at Antelope for 3 nights at Bridger Bay campground and it was heaven. It was hot, but the evenings were cool. So very disappointed at how low the lake was. I remember swimming in it 50 years ago. No bugs currently. The sites are level and paved, most are pull through. A few have sewer but most have just W/E. Great views. Sites are spacious with covered picnic table and fire ring. Very quiet. Take an early morning or late evening drive around to see the wildlife. Huge buffalo herds and Pronghorn sheep. We spotted a Burrowing Owl resting on a shrub and a desert fox running around. A coyote ran through the campground one evening and saw a Roadrunner cross the road. This is a wildlife paradise.

Great site, very large. It is dry camping where we stayed but was easy access and super affordable.

We stayed in Bridger Bay Campground. This is a phenomenal campground. It’s dry camping, but not roughing it. Paved roads, huge sites with a paved landing pad, covered cement patio with picnic table, grille table, fire pit, and gorgeous views of the lake and mountains. We had no problem navigating with our 40’ motor home. There are paths to walk down to the lake. Wildlife wanders through the campground. You can hike, bike, or drive around the island to see the bison, pronghorn, deer, and other wildlife. We can’t wait to come back.

Beautiful Dry Camping
Yes, this place smells when you drive up to obtain your camping pass and it may make you think, omg, how will I sleep through the night like this???? Well, by the time you get up to the actual camping area, the smell is gone. This is dry camping, but for us, that was okay. Five of us (2 adults, 7 yo, 3 yo and kitty) stayed in a 30ft RV in BB11 at the end of August. We turned our RV so that the windshield would face the water, which was beautiful. Each campsite is very large. We brought our own gas Weber, so we did not use the fire pit, but the picnic table was nice. We roasted marshmallows while watching the sunset and enjoyed the stars coming out. We had our first bison spotting 10 minutes after arrival to our campsite. Our girls were thrilled. Although warm out, the breeze was great and everyone was quiet, so the kids went down easily with all windows open. Be aware of the random storms that come through at night. Pull your awning in before bed. Bring your bikes too!

Passing through and thought we would try. One day pass is $15. With camping it is only $5 more and u kinda get 2 days. Buy the camping if u want to return on 2nd day even if u don’t want to camp. The r $40 spots but we didn’t look at those. All the Spots in our area were all paved and drive through with a canopy, table, and pit. Really nice. No hook ups but we’re self contained. It does smell like brine and some areas are really strong and a bit hard to handle. Saw lots of buffalo. The water was really low. It is not fancy at all but adequate for and overnight. Camping in a tent might be tougher.

Water is waaay down. 400+ yard walk to the water and when you get there, hoards of flies and smell of rotting meat. Showers are $1.00/4min and what I imagine prison being like. Place is very busy on a Sunday. $10 per vehicle entry fee. We left to go sleep at Walmart in town rather than fight the flies. Won't be coming back any time soon.

Quiet clean primitive campground with great views of the lake and sunset. Saw bison and coyote on beach. Private showers up the road towards visitors center -- bring quarters! White Rock Bay campground nearby is also a nice option. Beautiful island.

Beautiful Campground For Getaway
We took our 28ft RV here. This is a really beautiful campground. However no flush toilet except in visitor center. Shower is coin shower. We parked at BB campground, really close to the lake. It got a little roof thing in case of rain, firepit ring and picnic table and chairs. There only 26 sites in this section, most for RV or trailers. The drive here is great! $15 cover state park entrance fee. Amazing view!! Bison and tiny rats were found here and lots of fly even in winter. No drone allowed here unfortunately, such pretty place
