Dispersed Area Camping

Don Pedro Lake, with over two million acre-feet of water storage is the fifth largest reservoir in the state of California. Don Pedro is surrounded by a federally licensed project boundary. All lands and water within this boundary constitute the Don Pedro Recreation Area. Don Pedro is one of the few lakes in the state where lakeshore camping along undeveloped shoreline is still permitted. Abiding by all Regulations and adhering to safe, courteous and sanitary practices will not only protect the surrounding environment, but will also help to ensure that this privilege of Lakeshore camping at Don Pedro can continue.


Outlaws of the mid 1800's frequented the area around Don Pedro Lake. Marshes Flat Road, located along the east side of the lake, was a route frequently traveled by the likes of outlaw Joaquin Murrieta, where he was also known to hideout after his misdeeds.
