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

The drive to the lake is a curve-filled two lane paved road with a steep grade and no guard rails. Look out of free range cattle. At the end of this nail biting road is a small lake and it is beautiful. Totally breathtaking.

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