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.

****ATTENTION BOATERS****
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.
"Don Pedro" was actually a mid-1800’s land owner of French descent, named Pierre Sainsevain. He was known as Don Pedro by the Mexicans in the area. The land he owned along the Tuolumne River included Don Pedro Bar which is now inundated by Don Pedro Lake.
