         Map Lake Alpine                         

 Lake Alpine is located on highway 4 about  50 miles east of Angels Camp. The elevation   of the lake is 7,300 feet. There are campgrounds located on the northwest end of the lake and on the southeast side of the lake. The forest service has developed day use picnic areas that are located on the north side of the lake. These areas have barbecues and picnic tables.

You can swim but the water does not warm up until the middle of August.  There is a boat launching ramp (no fee is charged for boat launching) across from the lodge with plenty of parking. The speed limit on the lake is 10mph. The Lake Alpine Lodge is located on the north side of the lake. Services available at the lodge are a restaurant (Good food and a great view of the lake.), bar, and general store. The lodge opens on Memorial day and closes for the season around the end of September or first of October. There is a winter closure gate about 1/2 mile west of the lodge on highway 4. The road closes at the first snow.
