News & Announcements
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.
The lake level has been rising 1/2 to 1 foot per day this week so the unimproved low water launch ramp at Moccasin Point is now open for small shallow draft vessel launch! The lake is not yet very deep in this area so please stay between the red and green channel markers when exiting and returning to this launch ramp.
The shower restroom in the Fleming Meadows hook-up camping "H" area, near campsites H-29, H-53 and H-56, will be closed in December and January while it is being renovated. The other shower restroom in that area, near campsites H-35, H-38, H-59 and H-60 remains open for use. Please consider this when reserving a campsite or arriving for a first come - first serve camping stay between December 2015 and February, 2016.
The Tuolumne River Arm debris barrier booms containing the floating debris have been moved further upstream. Lake access to the Moccasin Pt. Recreation Area has been re-opened. Debris barrier booms will be moved further up the Tuolumne River Arm as lake elevation and conditions permit.
Recent storms have brought additional floating woody debris into the upper Don Pedro Reservoir. While these storms persist, the Tuolumne River Arm Debris Barrier booms containing this debris will remain closed. Vessel access to the Moccasin Pt. Recreation Area is currently blocked just east of the Jacksonville Bridge. These booms will be moved further upstream and this access will be restored as soon as conditions permit.
