Beautiful hike-in lakeThe featured jump is a tall 60 footerJumping options for all level of daredevils
Tucked into a glacially carved bowl high above Lake Tahoe, you'll find upper Angora Lake. To access the lake, you'll need to take a one mile uphill hike, but it's well worth it. There is a large sandy beach with plenty of shallow water for families, and plenty of different sized rocks and cliffs just begging to be jumped off of. You'll also find a privately operated resort located on the lake shore where you can rent boats, kayaks, and paddleboards. Want to relax? You can also grab some ice cream and delicious fresh squeezed lemonade. This is a great place to take the family for a day at the beach.
If you choose to go cliff jumping, be safe and know your limits.
- Light jacket (gets cool)
- Tennis or hiking shoes

Great summer spot
We used to make it a point to visit Angora Lake every summer when we went to Lake Tahoe. Jumping the cliff was always the highlight that kept us coming. This last summer, I went for the first time in probably 10 years. I have to say, it was a lot easier jumping that cliff when I was a kid. The height must have gotten to me over the years because it took me a solid half hour to muster up the strength to jump this time. Regardless if you jump or not, this is a great lake with a stretch of beach, and on a hot day, this is the place to chill off.
