This man-made lake has plenty of room for boating, fishing and swimming. There are four modern campgrounds and several picnic areas. The park also features a 78-slip marina, beach club and floating convenience store. Cabin rentals are available.

Angostura Recreation Area is located 10 miles southeast of Hot Springs, off US 385-18.

In 1949, the Bureau of Reclamation completed an earth-filled and concrete dam across the Cheyenne River. The dam was built for irrigation purposes, but paved the way for recreation. The word Angostura is Spanish for "narrows."
