Utica Reservoir is a popular outdoor recreational site located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. The reservoir was created in 1963 by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company for hydroelectric power generation. It has a capacity of 7,600 acre-feet and is fed by the South Fork of the Stanislaus River, which originates from snowmelt in the surrounding mountains. During the summer months, the reservoir provides water for agricultural use downstream in the Central Valley. The area surrounding the reservoir is known for its hiking and camping opportunities, and it is a popular destination for fishing, boating, and swimming. The snowmelt from the surrounding mountains contributes to the reservoir's water level, making it an important source of water for the region.
