New Hogan Lake is a reservoir located in Calaveras County, California. The lake was created in 1963 by the construction of the New Hogan Dam, which was built as a part of the Central Valley Project. The lake is primarily used for irrigation, flood control, and recreation purposes. It has a capacity of 337,000 acre-feet and covers an area of 4,400 acres. The hydrology of the lake is mainly attributed to the Calaveras River and the Bear Creek watersheds. Surface flow from these watersheds feeds the lake, as well as the snowpack during winter. The water from the lake is used for agricultural purposes in the surrounding area. The lake also provides recreational activities like hiking, fishing, camping, and boating.
