The campground sits at the foot of rugged and scenic glacial cirques, that top out around 10,000 feet. Dwarf aspens cover the campground, providing privacy between campsites, but little to no shade.
A variety of wildlife, including bighorn sheep, mountain goats, deer and birds of prey, make its home around the lake, creating good viewing opportunities.
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.
