Antlers National Forest Campground is situated in the Upper Sacramento Arm. This site offers a decent view of the lake and a boat ramp. Sites offer paved parking, table and a fire pit. A night will run $18 as of May 2010.
Though you'll be a little further from the lake, a good option for free camping is Madrone Campground. This is the spot to get away from the crowds and enjoy some peace and quiet in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest.
