Primitive camping along the lakeshore, known as Dispersed Area Camping, is a unique and popular activity that allows Don Pedro Lake campers to travel by boat and set up camp along the water’s edge in primitive locations. Such use requires a Dispersed Area Camping/Lake Navigation Map and permit (obtain at the entrance station - first come first serve). Campers are reminded that open fires are not allowed and to be prepared for primitive conditions. “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints”…
