Beautiful Angel Lake is just four miles from the campground, offering great canoeing and fishing for rainbow and brook trout.

Greys Lake Trail, a 4.75-mile round-trip path to a hidden alpine lake, begins at Angel Lake.

A variety of wildlife, including bighorn sheep, mountain goats, deer and birds of prey, make its home around the lake, creating good viewing opportunities for visitors to the area.
