Welcome to Don Pedro Lake - a recreational gem in the Sierra Nevada foothills of the Stanislaus National Forest, near the communities of Moccasin and La Grange, and bordering the northwestern corner of Yosemite National Park. Here you'll find nearly 160 miles of shoreline, excellent fishing and seemingly endless opportunity for water sports and fun.
Don Pedro Lake is actually the 5th largest man-made lake in California with over 2.3 million acre feet of water. Surrounded by rolling hills and oak trees, this beautiful reservoir is situated in a canyon carved out by the Tuolumne river. Several tributaries drain directly into Don Pedro Lake allowing the water levels to remain high and the comfortably warm summer water temperatures.
Fishing on Don Pedro Lake is available year-round with excellent opportunities for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, bluegill and even catfish. Smallmouth bass are found throughout the lake on rocky points and islands and Don Pedro Lake is also known for producing large numbers of salmon.
With nearly 13,000 acres of water - there's a lot to enjoy on Don Pedro
And of course boating and water sports of all types is popular across the lake. Houseboat rentals are available at Lake Don Pedro Marina and small watercraft rentals are available at two Forever Resorts marinas on the lake: Lake Don Pedro Marina and Moccasin Point Marina. Both locations offer friendly services and visitor information.
From our whole Don Pedro crew here at Forever Resorts, we look forward to welcoming you to the lake soon.
