Attention Campers and Boaters

Due to ongoing safety concerns regarding the Moccasin Creek Dam located at the east shore of Don Pedro Lake, The Moccasin Point Campground and Moccasin Point Marina have been evacuated and will remain closed until further notice. Fleming Meadows and Blue Oaks Campgrounds are open for regular use.

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.
