  • It makes me think of home when I come here in the summer.. I love the lake and wish I could go more often. It's kind of the only lake around here with sandy beaches (you can't really count Sheridan lake) the water temperature isn't super freezing either like some of the hills lakes. It's a pretty big lake and great for tubing. It can be a fun lake for family or partying.
  • Me and my family love coming here. We spend most of our free time at angostura. Beautiful lakes has nice sandy beaches Plenty of Fishing and boating options.
  • It's a beautiful place. Camping, fishing. hiking, convenience store on the docks. A very nice place to spend the day.
  • Hidden gem of western South Dakota. Natural sand beaches, great fishing, boating, sand volleyball. Beach restaurant had pizza and salads with a full bar. Beautiful place
  • Still got a decent campsite during Memorial Day weekend in 2003. Looks like a pretty popular place for boaters. I'd stay again before/after a visit to Rushmore/Crazyhorse/Mammoth Site. © TIFA 2003
