Located in the Sierra Nevada foothills, on the way to Yosemite, is Lake Don Pedro, east of Modesto and approximately 2 hours southeast of Sacramento. Because of its large size and over 160 miles of shoreline, Lake Don Pedro is rated as one of California's best recreational lakes with hundreds of hidden coves and inlets to boat, fish, swim and camp.
Whether your idea of a vacation is relaxing all day with a good book...laughing with family and friends over a card game... or keeping busy with a variety of activities, houseboating on Lake Don Pedro is perfect. There's plenty of water to enjoy your favorite water sports - wake boarding, windsurfing, sailing or jet-skiing and for the adventurer, you can explore countless coves. There's even a swimming lagoon next to the marina that's open all summer - it's a two-acre body of water complete with a sandy beach and a convenient snack bar so you can get a bite to eat after a hearty swim.
