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.
