About New Hogan Lake

With a warm, arid climate and summer temperatures smashing 90 degrees, New Hogan Lake has 50 miles of shoreline that provide welcome relief and extend eight miles (like the ones your gramps used to walk every day) upstream to the north and south forks of the Calaveras River.

The lake has become a popular boating destination with ramps around the perimeter and plenty of water skiing, wake boarding and jet skiing opportunities. It’s also a primo spot for year-round fishing with with bass, bluegill, catfish, crappie and stripers to catch. Heck, the fish aren’t even the most exotic animals in the area. The foothills are home to grey fox, mountain lion, bobcat, rattlesnake and bald eagles that vacay during the winter months. Cruise the south shore for designated wildlife viewing area. Other activities including camping, hiking, biking, and horseback riding.

History of New Hogan Lake

The 4,400 surface-acre lake was created in 1964 with the completion of New Hogan Dam. The dam was built to provide flood protection to the city of Stockton and water for irrigation, drinking and hydroelectric power, and it now offers recreation opportunities for thousands of visitors each year.
