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.
