• Surface Area: 5,000 Acres
• Volume: 520,528 Acre Feet
Millerton Lake is a lake near the town of Friant in Fresno County and Madera County, California, about 15 miles north of downtown Fresno, United States. It is formed by Friant Dam on the San Joaquin River. Part of the Central Valley Project, the dam was built by the United States Bureau of Reclamation and was completed in 1942. The lake stores water for irrigation, which is distributed by the Madera and Friant-Kern Canals to the San Joaquin Valley. It has a capacity of 520,528 acre feet (642,000,000 m³). Secondary uses include flood control and recreation, including swimming, fishing, water skiing and camping. A 25 MW hydroelectric plant operated by the Friant Power Authority produces electricity from large releases and two smaller plants use water released for a fish hatchery and to maintain minimum-flow in the river.

Prior to the construction of Friant Dam, the current lakebed was the site of the town of Millerton, the first county seat of Fresno County.
