Gregory Creek Group Campground

Gregory Creek Group Campground is in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, on the Sacramento Arm of Shasta Lake. The campground is across the arm from Antlers Campground. Campers at Gregory Creek enjoy fishing along the shore, especially along the Gregory Creek inlet. Swimmers take advantage of Gregory Beach. Boaters can launch their vessels at nearby Antlers launch ramp.

Gregory Creek Group Campground is composed of 18 campsites for trailers, RVs, and tents arranged on a single loop. The group site can accommodate up to 100 people and 20 vehicles. A mix of pine and oak offer ample shade. At times the campground may be closed due to low lake water levels or to protect bald eagle habitat. As the lake level drops, access to the water becomes more difficult due to the steep bank. Some campsites have filtered lake views. Visitors can minimize freeway noise by selecting sites away from the entrance gate.

A 2-night minimum stay is required. Call (530) 275-8113 one week before arrival for entry gate code.
