Welcome to Don Pedro Lake!
News & Announcements
Temporary Visitor's Center
Unfortunately the Don Pedro Recreation Agency Office and Visitor Center was destroyed by a fire on May 25. This was a historic building and is such a loss for the community.
We have a temporary Visitor’s Center set-up on site. If you need to contact us you can call 209-852-2396.
All campgrounds, boat launches, marinas and facilities are open and unaffected by the fire.
The weather is beautiful, the lake is full, the campgrounds are ready and we look forward to seeing everyone this Memorial Weekend to kick-off the 2016 Lake Don Pedro season.
Temporary Employment Applications
If you recently submitted an application for temporary employment we respectfully ask that you re-submit those applications to either the temporary DPRA office or to Turlock Irrigation District.

The Blue Oaks Recreation Area launch ramp is now open and available for vessel launch! Boaters who use the Blue Oaks launch ramp are advised that the entire area from this ramp out to the 5 mph no wake buoys between Schoolhouse & Fleming Pt. will remain a slow 5 mph no wake zone until such time that lake level conditions allow for the removal of houseboat mooring from this area. Travel time from the Blue Oaks launch ramp to the 5 mph no wake buoys at no wake speed is approximately 25 minutes.
The main launch ramp at the Moccasin Pt. Recreation Area is now open for shallow draft vessel launching. The lake level should rise sufficiently to allow for deeper draft vessel launching from this ramp by Saturday March 5th.
When water levels are sufficient to safely allow the production of a fireworks show at Don Pedro Lake, it is attended by thousands and always falls around the 4th of July. Be sure to check the news and events section of the website for its status and date if a show is to be held this year.
