Have been coming to Angora Lake for quite a while - 60 years and thank God it remains the same. Truly carved from Heaven and if you arrive like I did on a weekday in October - you won't find a soul. Absolutely quiet, serene and peaceful. There are so many special destinations to experience around Lake Tahoe - I... More

We loved our hike to the Angora lakes. The hike is very manageable, somewhat of a climb, mostly because of the altitude, and just a bit over a mile round trip. The scenery is spectacular and the destination at the beach is hard to beat. We had sandwiches from the cabin and lemonade. Both we very good. This is a... More

While looking for something to fill an afternoon, we were advised to check out Angora Lakes. Only 20 minutes or so from South Lake Tahoe, this is a MUST for beauty and outdoor lovers. The drive may be a little scary for some as the last 1/2 mile is atop the Angora Ridge and is one lane with sheer drop-offs... More

Not too difficult and there's a a reward (lemonade) at the end. This was a lovely short hike, with views of 2 lakes, the top lake being accessible for swimming.

We have made several attempts at Angora Lake. Very small parking lot, and once you are "in" you really don't want to leave. There is a cost for parking, which is well worth the money spent once you catch a view of this glorious spot. Swimming is there for those who brave the cold waters. We kayaked around the lake,...

Park in the parking lot at the base of the trail, don't forget to pay the "iron ranger" for your parking. Then take this short hike, (a little steepish at the beginning), but then it flattens out for the remainder of the hike. When you get to the top, you are treated to a beautiful mountain lake with family swimming,... More

Crowded but a happy, friendly crowd. The "general store" at the big lake has excellent sandwiches and some of the best lemonade I've ever had.

My family and I recently visited the two Angora Lakes for the first time, and it was worth the trip! The Angora Lakes Resort is a privately owned establishment, located approximately 1/2 mile from the southwestern terminus of Angora Ridge Road, where you can find two small parking lots (roughly 30 and 40 cars' capacity, respectively, per my recollection). As... More

Staring at the Fire Station at Fallen Leaf Lake. Hike up to the top of the ridge - about an hour depending on your speed. Be sure to take in the views as you reach the top before dropping down the other side to Angora Lakes parking lot. Another 15 minutes easy uphill to the lakes. The return trip to... More

We drive up to this place. The road to lakes is bit harder to find because I is not marked very well. At the beginning it looks like the road is all dirt, but that is only for to pass the first curve. After that is all paved, but narrow. Make sure you hike up to the 3 lake, there... More
