Moc Fire Update

While camping and day-use at Lake Don Pedro remain open, it is important to note that the air quality is extremely poor due to the Moc Fire. The marina at Moccasin Point is currently closed due to the fire and air quality, but Lake Don Pedro Marina near Fleming Meadows remains open. Please be aware that given the hot, dry conditions, there is a higher than normal risk of fire. We ask that all visitors use caution when operating equipment and motor vehicles and when starting, maintaining and extinguishing campfires.

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.
