Acorn Campground is spread across a hillside above New Hogan Lake in the foothills of Calaveras County. The campground is operated by the Army Corps of Engineers. Visitors to New Hogan Lake are drawn to its oak covered shores and its many coves and inlets. Fishing, boating, waterskiing, mountain biking, hiking, and horseback riding are popular here. Spring is a nice time to be at the lake when the hills are green and the temperatures moderate. A boat launch ramp in the campground is free for campers.
Acorn Campground has 128 campsites scattered over the rolling hills overlooking the lake. Partial shade is provided by oaks. All of the campsites can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. Many campsites have long pull-though driveways.
