*****Important Info*****

Please do not swim within 50 yards of marinas or vessels connected to AC Shore Power due to the risk of Electric Shock Drowning (ESD). ESD results from the passage of typically low level AC - Alternating Current in freshwater through the body at a sufficient level to cause skeletal muscular paralysis. The victim is rendered unable to help themselves and they drown. If the electric current is high enough, electrocution can also occur. ESD is caused by electric current leaking into freshwater around boats & docks that are connected to AC shore power.

Don Pedro Lake still has campsites available at Moccasin Point Campground and Blue Oaks Campground for the 4th of July weekend! Call the Reservation Office @ 209-852-2396, ext. 3, Mon-Fri, 8 am to 4 pm to make your reservations. You can also reserve campsites on this website by clicking the Reservation tab. Just a reminder - There will not be a 4th of July Fireworks Show at Don Pedro Lake in 2016.
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.
