New Hogan Lake announces changes to day-use fees

Published June 26, 2017

Beginning June 26, new self-pay fee machines will be installed for payment of day-use fees at New Hogan Lake’s Observation Point, Fiddleneck and Wrinkle Cove Parks.

The new self-pay machines will allow visitors to pay day-use fees using credit cards only.  The machines will issue visitors a receipt to be placed on the vehicle dash as proof of payment.  

With the addition of the new fee machines, Observation Point and Wrinkle Cove will now begin to charge $5 per vehicle day-use fees, and day-use fees at Fiddleneck will remain $5 per vehicle.

A 2016 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District review of New Hogan Lake’s fee structure determined fee changes are essential for offsetting operation and maintenance costs of the recreation areas used by the public.  The review also ensured park fees remain comparable and fair to those charged by other local providers for similar facilities and services.

Observation Point, Fiddleneck and Wrinkle Cove Parks are open year-round.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is one of the nation's leading federal providers of outdoor recreation with more than 400 lake and river projects in 43 states.
