New Hogan Lake is a popular destination for boaters, partly because of the lake's broad expanse of water and partly because of the economical entry fees. Four dollars covers admission and launching.
The lake is open to waterskiing, personal watercraft, pleasure cruisers, sailboats, kayaks, and almost any other kind of watercraft. However, there is no marina at the lake.
Life jackets are available to borrow at the Fiddleneck Recreation Area kiosk and Wrinkle Cove Day Use Area. The Fiddleneck station is managed by the park hosts and the Wrinkle Cove station is self service. All sizes are available. Just borrow, use and return!
To prevent the spread of invasive species, boaters should check their boat, trailer and vehicle every time a boat is taken out of the water. Inspect all exposed surfaces vehicle, trailer, anchor, dock lines, live wells, bilge, motor, hull, trailer axle and rollers). Small mussels feel like sandpaper and are invisible to the eye.
Wash the hull of each watercraft thoroughly (steam clean if possible). Remove all debris, plant and animal material. Drain all water and dry all areas. Drain and dry the lower outboard unit. Clean and dry all live-wells. Empty and dry any buckets. Dispose of all bait in the trash. Wait five days and keep watercraft dry between launches into different fresh waters.
