Water from Don Pedro Lake is primarily used for irrigating the farm land that falls within the Turlock Irrigation District and Modesto Irrigation District boundaries. It is also used for power generation, and adds to the drinking water supply for City of Modesto. Don Pedro Dam also provides flood control for California’s Central Valley.
THE LOWER (MAIN) BLUE OAKS LAUNCH RAMP IS OPEN.
The lake level has dropped enough to re-open up this ramp for vessel launch. LAKE LEVELS MAY RISE AGAIN, SO NO OVERNIGHT PARKING IS PERMITTED IN THIS LOWER BLUE OAKS LAUNCH RAMP PARKING LOT.
