We hiked up to the Angora Lakes for a day trip this week and thought it was one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen. My three kids, ages 12, 14, and 16, loved it as well. We found parking easy, maybe because it was midweek. Luckily we had $7 in cash, because you have to put your... More

We loved Angora Lakes! For a more challenging hike, we parked by the fire station down at Fallen Leaf Lake and hiked up the trailhead directly behind it. It's like a nice woodsy stair master. If you prefer to have an easy hike (stroll), you can drive up to the Angora Lakes parking lot and it's a short, relatively flat... More

The trail is moderate and a beautiful hike. There is a pond with a few private cabins after about 1 mile. Then, right after that is the first lake and then the main lake is only 1/4 mile further on. The scenery is wonderful and at the main lake there are paddle boats, canoes, etc to rent. You can jump... More

Decided to check out Angora Lakes with our little one since the reviews made it seem like a beautiful, short, and not too difficult hike. My new criteria since I am carrying him! I brought my GPS watch since I wasn't clear on the distance. To get to both lakes, I logged 1.9 miles roundtrip. Definitely worth the hike; it... More

We thought we could go at any time of year, as is generally the case for hikes. While we were technically able to go, we encountered a few issues because the resort was closed for the season. First, the road to it was closed. So we had to park on the road near the entrance and walk in, which ended... More

If you're visiting South Lake Tahoe, this is a must visit area. I've described below some suggestions based on my trip out there with my wife and two kids (6 and 8 yrs) and how we pland to do things differently to make our next trip a lot better. 1. Preparations: Get there early. The parking lot is small and... More

Easy hike... But one of the better secrets up here at the lake. First time I discovered these lakes was a really cool. Cliffs to jump off, fishing if you'd like, all-around cool spot for sure. A must see, especially for families.

We visited Angora Lakes for an afternoon during a weekend family getaway to Lake Tahoe. After researching things to do away from the hustle and bustle of South Lake Tahoe, we ran across Angora Lakes Resort. It's about a 15-minute drive up the mountain from where highways 50 and 89 meet and a little ways beyond Fallen Leaf Lake. After... More

A short hike from the car park brings you to a beautiful lake with warm shallow water. Make sure you carry on to the second lake as this is nicer and there is a small store and boats can be hired here. Be sure to have $7 in change for the carpark which is unmanned. We visited midweek in September... More

I love Tahoe. I love Fallen leaf lake. But Angora..? I dont like it. Its beautiful, but theres something really wrong with it. I dont know if its something in the water or what, but its like you just stepped into another country..or the twilight zone. It scares me. I will never go back.
