Attention Campers and Boaters

Due to the Controlled Spillway Operation that took place in February, Bonds Flat Road remains closed just beyond Blue Oaks Campground to just prior to the Visitor Center. If you are going to Fleming Meadows or the Visitor Center you will need to access those locations by taking Hwy 132 through La Grange, drive 8 miles east and then turn left on Bonds Flat Road. Access to Moccasin Point via Hwy 120 and Blue Oaks via J59/La Grange Road is not affected.

The old Don Pedro Dam still exists at Don Pedro Lake. Some 220’ under the water of a full lake, the old Don Pedro Dam is 1.5 miles upstream from the current dam’s location. Completed in 1923, it was, at the time, the world’s largest concrete gravity dam. The lake created by the old dam, with its storage capacity of 289.000 acre feet, was only 14% of the capacity of the current lake.
