One of our favorite places to go. More great views of Lake Tahoe and the granite peaks of Echo Peak. Only open Summer time and early fall. Recommend getting a lemonaid from the resort and rent a kayak to boat around the lake. If you are brave enough jump off the cliffs for a memorable experience.
Hidden gem! Pleasant hike (~1 mile). Go past the first lake to the second lake where there are paddle boards, kayaks, picnic tables and beach. Stop in for some fresh lemonade at the shack!
Amazing lakes with little cabin community tucked into an enormous mountainside (accessed summer only). Small general store. Bring dogs to the left side of the upper angora lake for a pet/owner swim
These lakes are only accessible to visitors by an short hike. At the quaint resort you can eat, drink homemade lemonade, rent boats and enjoy a swim and the sun.
For the more adventurous types who want to do some cliff diving, hike up to Angora Lakes above Fallen Leaf Lake. These two large lakes have a small store that serves snacks and rents out kayaks and canoes. This clear and green swimming hole is known for its tall cliffs where daredevils can practice some mean jumps and dives. The highest ledge is about 60 feet. Please check the water depth and submerged objects before jumping. Hot Tip: The Angora Lakes resort's lemonade is "world famous". Directions: To reach Angora Lakes from Highway 89, take the Fallen Leaf Lake Rd. turnoff for approximately 2 miles (3.2 km). Turn left and climb to the top of the one-lane road and look for the dirt road and a sign reading "1214". The steep paved road leads to fantastic vistas and ending in the Angora Lakes parking lot. There is a short 1-mile (1.6 km) uphill hike to Angora Lake.
