The Angora Lakes are two small freshwater lakes in the Sierra Nevada and Lake Tahoe Watershed tucked into a glacially carved bowl with two cliffs framing it. At an elevation of 7,450 feet, it is 1,200 ft (370 m) in elevation above Fallen Leaf Lake and Lake Tahoe. It is the location of the Angora Lakes Resort, a small summer outdoor recreation location. The lakes were named for a herd of Angora goats that used to graze in the area.
