 ANTELOPE CREEK RANCH is a family operation.Meals are superb, prepared by our resident chef and served in sync with a flexible, daily fishing schedule that allows for as much time fishing as possible.
Complimentary California wines are served with dinners and guests are welcome to stock the sunken living room bar with their favorite liquor and mix for their angling holiday use.
The massive fireplace and sunken bar add to the atmosphere, and after an eventful fishing day, and a wonderful dinner, you can watch deer stroll through the meadow, stars fall from the clear sky, and listen to nature from the creekside hot tub.
The setting is an ideal spring, mid-summer, and fall angling retreat. At an elevation of 5,000´ Antelope Creek Ranch enjoys cool summer breezes from the snow-covered Mount Shasta and is a pleasant respite from the warm Sacramento Valley summer weather.

searching for more than relaxation will find plenty to do near Antelope Creek Ranch. There are several renowned mountain golf courses less than an hour away (Running Y Resort in Klamath Falls, Mount Shasta Resort in Mt. Shasta, and Shastina Re- sort). There are two adjacent Na- tional Forests with hundreds of miles of hiking trails, and a number of nearby jaunts for the guests who find the need to move beyond the streamside hammock.
The ranch is surrounded by Na- tional Forest lands, wildlife and wa- terfowl refuges, and birding is beyond terrific. Naturalists needn’t leave the lodge to see an aerial pa- rade of bald eagles, herons, osprey, and a parade of migrating songbirds.
