About Lake Tulloch



Lake Tulloch is a recreational reservoir located in the Sierra Foothills near the historic town of Copperopolis. The lake, which features 55 miles of beautiful shoreline and was created in 1958, is one of the few lakes in California that allows private waterfront homes and docks. It's convenient location, less than two hours from San Francisco Bay Area, makes it the ideal place for vacation or second homes.


The lake is fed by the Stanislaus River, and which is primarily fed by snow runoff. It's dam is used for power generation which also helps to keep the water clear and fresh.

Lake Tulloch consists of four main channels shaped similar to an "X". The channels are fairly protected by the surrounding foothills keeping the winds to a minimum and providing for great watersking conditions. The "glassy" water is favorite to most waterskiers and wakeboarders. Tulloch is also stocked with small mouth and large mouth bass, and trout which provides for great fishing. The center area of the lake, is open to the wind providing for windsailing, jetsking and tubing.

Lake Tulloch is located close to Yosemite National Forrest and Big Trees State Park, which lends a helping hand to the natural beauty of the area. We are located minutes from historic gold mining towns including Columbia, Angels Camp, Jamestown, Sonora, and Murphys. Murphys is the latest "hotspot" for wine enthusiasts.

During the summer, the Lake Tulloch area provides a great opportunity to explore other local lakes and recreation. New Melones, Don Pedro, Lake McClure, New Hogan, and Lake Camanche are within a quick drive. During winter months, Dodge Ridge Ski Area is within one hour and Bear Valley is about 1.5 hours.
