This beautiful small lake is about 5 or 6 miles up a paved hillside road. It was quite crowded when we were there with the parking lot about full. There were people fishing, boating (without motors) enjoying the beach. I was amazed at how many...More

There is no check in time at Angel Lake. There is no lodging there. Just a lake, rest rooms and a parking lot.
