Antelope Valley is approximately 15 miles (24 km) long and 8 miles (13 km) wide. The USGS reports its elevation at 4,977 feet (1,517 m). It stretches from to . The mountains surrounding the valley floor rise to over 10,000 feet (3,000 m). The topography of the valley floor is gently rolling and conducive to the agricultural and pastoral uses to which it is put. The valley sides are made up of steep slopes. The primary land use is irrigation-based agriculture and grazing.
On the California side of the border, where the vast majority (33 square miles (85 km2)) of the valley lies, the Antelope Valley is served by the Antelope Valley Fire Protection District (formed 1947) and the Antelope Valley Water District (formed 1961), and includes the communities of Coleville, Topaz, and Walker.
