New Hogan Lake

Overview

New Hogan Dam and Lake is located in the oak- and brush-covered foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The 4,400 acre lake was created in 1964 with the completion of New Hogan Dam. When full, the lake has 50 miles of shoreline and extends nearly eight miles upstream to the confluence of the north and south forks of the Calaveras River. The dam provides flood protection to the City of Stockton (among other communities) and water for irrigation, drinking and hydroelectric power. The area is generally characterized by a warm, dry climate with summer temperatures regularly soaring above 90 degrees.

Recreation

This campground is only accessible by boat and offers the only camping available on the lake outside of the main campgrounds, Acorn and Oak Knoll. Water recreation such as water skiing, wakeboarding, tubing are all frequent activities on New Hogan Lake. Fishing is allowed year-round, subject to state regulations. Popular species caught in New Hogan Lake include striped bass, black bass, catfish, bluegill and crappie.

Facilities

The campground features 30 tent only campsites. There are vault restrooms within the campground as well as trash receptacles. Each campsite features a fire pit and lantern holder. For those accessing Deer Flat Campground, boats may be launched and vehicles may be parked in the Fiddleneck Day Use Area.
