Recreation

Angel Lake offers great canoeing and fishing for rainbow and brook trout. Greys Lake Trail, a 4.75-mile roundtrip path to a hidden alpine lake, begins at the campground entrance.

Facilities

The campground offers single and double campsites, some of which have lake views. Each site contains a picnic table, campfire ring and grill.
