New Concessionaire

The Don Pedro Recreation Agency, which manages recreation operations at Don Pedro Lake, welcomes Suntex Marinas as its new concessionaire to manage Lake Don Pedro Marina and Moccasin Point Marina. Suntex will manage boat, personal watercraft, kayak and paddleboard rentals as well as boat slips, dry storage, a full-service houseboat construction and repair facility, café, and convenience store at the two marinas. A Special Meeting of the Don Pedro Recreation Agency Board of Control has been scheduled for July 27, 2017, at 2 p.m. for the public to meet Suntex personnel. As a gesture of the company’s commitment to Don Pedro Lake after being awarded the concessionaire role and prior to assuming management of the two marinas, Suntex sponsored $10,000 towards the “Fireworks on the Water” celebration recently held at Don Pedro Lake. Suntex takes over management of the two marinas from Forever Resorts, who served as concessionaire at Lake Don Pedro Marina since 2001 and at Moccasin Point Marina since 1997.

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”…
