Angostura Recreation Area Nature Trail Disc Golf Course map

The Angostura Recreation Area Nature Disc Golf Course is a 1.2 miles (one way) 9-hole course on grassy hills that offer beautiful views of the Reservoir. If you don’t have a frisbee, it’s not a problem. The park entrance booth has discs available to check out free of charge on a first-come basis.  

Angostura Reservoir offers 36 miles of shoreline, boating, bird watching, fishing, and opportunities to go swimming from some of the finest sandy beaches in the state. With campsites and cabins available, Angostura Recreation Area is a great place to stay with family and friends.

The average depth of the Reservoir is 29 feet and the deepest portion is 75 feet deep when full. The Reservoir’s average summer temperature is 66 degrees F. The dam was built in 1949 by the Bureau of Reclamation across the Cheyenne River for irrigation purposes.

There is a $4/person or $6/vehicle entrance fee. Annual passes are also available.

Trail length:
1.20 miles
Whether in good shots or in actual birds, it's always good to see as many "Birdies" as possible during your round of disc golf. The "Birdies" scorecard/field-guide was designed to help players identify some of the more common birds found here. How many "Birdies" will you see during your round today?

Angostura Tree Scorecard

Trail length:
1.20 miles
When disc golfers hit a tree with their disc and get a favorable bounce, they call that “Tree Love.” Use the pictures on this scorecard to identify a few of the trees found here at Angostura Recreation Area. Every time you hit a tree with your frisbee, take a second to try to identify it. Look at its bark, leaf shape and other identifying features. Soon, identifying trees will be as easy as making a five foot putt.
